Today is a bittersweet record release day. On the one hand, one of my all time favorite bands is releasing a new record, but … it’s a “greatest hits” album and their last before they go on what some have speculated to be quite a long break. If you haven’t guessed yet, I’m talking about Fall Out Boy. Only a few years ago they were just 4 dudes from the suburbs of Chicago playing crappy pop punk in nearly empty VFW halls. Today it’s no stretch of the imagination to say that they’re one of the biggest bands in the world. And they’ve been supportive of peta2 from the get go! With long-time vegan Andy Hurley behind the kit, it’s not surprising that he’s spoken out about the cruelty of KFC and the benefits of a vegan diet.
So in honor of these princes of pop punk who I still adore despite the glitz and glamour and absurdity of it all, we’re giving away 2 copies of their new album, Believers Never Die. For your chance to win, leave a comment with the best Fall Out Boy show you’ve been to. And if you haven’t seen them live, make something up! Two winners will be chosen at random and notified on November 24.
I’ll kick things off! Of the ridiculous amount of FOB shows I’ve been to, I don’t know if I have a solid favorite, but I’d have to say that the show with The Reunion Show in Atlanta in 2003 is definitely memorable!
