is different, you know, compared to their early, early ones. So I feel like they’ve changed a lot. – Even in the early 2000s,
they were kinda like the ’90s band with the ’90s mentality
and that kinda like the floppy hair. And they were just
playing guitar and having fun. And then this is when they
more became a mid-2000s band. – ♪ Come on, come on, and let me in ♪ ♪ The bruises on your thighs

me for centuries ♪ That’s tight. I’ll [bleep] with that. – I feel like I’m smiling a lot.
It’s just ’cause I love them. – His voice is so unique,
so you can notice it. But they just add so many
different types of music and sounds to it that it just, like– I don’t know. It changes it
entirely. But it’s all good. – I love that their sound has
stayed so consistent over time. But it’s still very modern
and current with what’s popping now. – I’m a fan of their newer stuff still. I’m not one of those people that’s like, “Oh, they suck now ’cause
their music isn’t the same as when they were 20.” It’s like, mm, music is music. – You can ask someone who was
12 when they listened to them and they’re 21 now and ask them
if they enjoy Fall Out Boy, and the answer’s probably yes. – (FBE) Fall Out Boy has
had a massive following for over a decade now.
– Me included, yes. – (FBE) What do you think about how their music has grown over time?
– It’s changed. Especially now hearing
that new track, that new single, it’s so different. – Although they’ve stayed consistent, they’re definitely
keeping up with the time. But they’re still not compromising
the sound of Fall Out Boy, which I totally respect. – A lot of people say, “I don’t
like modern Fall Out Boy because it’s not pop punk.” But every band goes through
evolutions, you know? And so if you’re a true fan, you’re gonna support whatever
they come out with, you know? And you’re gonna see the beauty in it. – (FBE) So for you, as a big fan, can you talk about
why you love Fall Out Boy? – It brings people together.
Music brings people together. Like, just the lyrics itself,
it’s just inspiring. And it also motivates people,
and it gets them pumped up. – Whenever I’m just feeling down,
I just listen to their music. And it just picks me right back up again. There’s one song for every emotion
I feel like that I’m feeling. – They’re just an icon of our
childhood, especially mine, like just with my friends too.
Like, we were always– It was always on somewhere. – They just remind me of,
like, just middle school. Those bands that were with you and for some reason
put you in a good mood. – I didn’t really become a true emo kid until halfway through high school. Um, and it really helped me feel connected, and same
with Panic! at the Disco. Same with Green Day, you know? All these different bands
just connected broken kids. – As a kid, I feel like
I’ve really resonated with Patrick the most, because I was like the little
chubby kid, too, growing up. He’s the lead vocalist for this
sick band, like really cool band. Like, “I can do some cool shit,
too, when I’m older.” – (FBE) So the group went
on hiatus back in 2010, and many fans were devastated. But they’re back now and releasing albums, including one titled “Mania,”
that’s coming out later this year. – Yes, I’m excited.
Put it on my Hanukkah list. – (FBE) Are you excited for that album? – Yeah. I’m, like– I feel like I’m a newly born
Fall Out Boy fan. – Hell yeah, I am. Just from listening to what
I’ve heard so far, I like it. You know? And I’m excited to see
what other songs that they have. – I don’t think I’ve ever sat down and listened to an entire
Fall Out Boy album. But I’m definitely gonna
hear these songs and be happy and relate to some of them and be like, “Yep, Fall Out Boy’s still around.” And I’ll be happy in that knowledge. – I already pre-ordered it
the day it came out, and I already got my
concert tickets for that tour. So I’m kinda like excited
just a little bit. Anyone can enjoy it. I mean, even my mom,
when I make her listen to it, she enjoys it. My nephew, they had
their songs in Big Hero 6. He was singing “Immortals,”
and it made me so happy. – Thanks for watching this episode
