The Best Fall Out Boy Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 I've Got a Dark Alley and a Bad Idea That Says You Should Shut Your Mouth (Summer Song)

This is so low on the list, why? It is such a personal song and amazing song it make you feel happy and feel his sorrow and I can't begin to explain how amazing this song it, like it isn't just a song, especially not to Pete, it it so personal to Pete that they have NEVER played it live. I feel like the more personal their song get the more underrated they are.

This one is so amazing the lyrics and the tone is are great I'm shocked it's not at least a little bit higher above!

This is a beautiful song! It should be in at least top 30-20! This is probably my favorite FOB song, next to Young Volcanoes.

This song is one of the greatest. It's musically amazing, and there are so many feels. Patrick's voice is so soulful.

62 Sending Postcards from a Plane Crash (Wish You Were Here)

I love this song its song epic

63 Love, Sex, Death

"Here we go again..." with an awesome Fall Out Boy song. Never lets me down, even with a short little song like this.

I love this song, and why wouldn't I its aggressive

64 Snitches and Talkers Get Stitches and Walkers

This is my favorite Fall Out Boy song ever. It's unlike any of their other songs and can't be compared to that of any other artist. Pete himself compared it to My Chemical Romance, but I barely see any resemblance; I love My Chem, but this song sounds much more polished than any of My Chemical Romance's heavy stuff. The lyrics are applicable to real world situations and there are a few of Pete's Arma Angelus-esque screams in it, which definitely differentiates it from any of FOB's other stuff. Definitely my favorite, and all-too underrated.

Has a sort of punk-ish style with it. Awesome.

65 Yule Shoot Your Eye Out

Why does now one like this it's amazing 😀😃😃

66 W.A.M.S.

Woah, why is this at the bottom of the list? This song is beautifully put together and as usual Patrick sounds godlike. Give it a listen.

Damn I thought I must've missed it when I had to get into the 40's to find it. But 88?...that's sad

Honestly LOVE this song, at least top 30. 89 is just rude.

I LOVE THIS! Why is it so low!?

67 XO

One of the few songs that NEVER loses its momentum... the bridge to end part is full of emotion and beauty.

Great lyrics and great song deserves to be way higher

Okay, so WHY have only 0.1% of people voted for this!? It's amazing. I can't believe it's at 61, and I haven't even reached 27's placement on this list so goodness only knows where that's found itself placed. Like, I don't know, I just feel as though people are voting for all the really popular songs (singles, mainly), and not even bothering to listen to the other songs on their albums, which are honestly sometimes so much better than the singles. :(

68 Eternal Summer

This song is so underrated. It's a "I don't want to go back to school" song to me.

69 Fourth of July

It makes me sad to see this song so low on the list because I think it is both a musical and lyrical masterpiece and it is so incredibly fun to listen to the instrumentals of this song.

Hey, it's really amazing! I can't understand why Fourth of July is so low!

Why is this not by too five! This has to be my favorite album of theirs

This song is so underrated I love the backing track so much - awildzapdos

70 The Last of the Real Ones

This is so new, so I see why it is not ranked high yet. People need to get their vote on because the new songs they are singing are amazing. I listen to this every day and can sing it constantly alone in my bedroom. I wish people said this stuff about me. The meaning is awesome and it makes me think. It should make you think too.

Powerful, touching lyrics, complete with an upbeat tune, deserves to be top 3 at least

I want to vote this song up but now its at 69 and I don't know if I should - Ilikefishsticks

72 Get Busy Living or Get Busy Dying (Do Your Part to Save the Scene and Stop Going to Shows)

This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters, but this song is really amazing and catchy.

Yay... I love this song, especially Pete's little rant at the end

This one is one of my top favorites the lyrics are so true

My favorite Fall Out Boy song of all time! Love the poetic lyrics and the part Pete shows his full voice. I also love the emo poetry at the end. Sadly that peotry is better than 999/1000 crap today.

73 Hold Me Tight or Don't

Love it. It shows a different side to fall out boy and shows how they're changing musically and how they're not limited to what people have heard or think of them. The song itself is amazing I've been listening to it nonstop the past few days and lemme just say the new album alongside this song has great quality. The music video is also beautiful. The lyrics as always are great I just want to sing along and the vibe in general is unique and makes me feel good.this song : a bop

The chorus is crazy!

One of my favourite songs off M A N I A
Can't wait for the album release!

74 It's Not a Side Effect of the Cocaine, I Am Thinking It Must Be Love

I think I'm just going to die of something here. HOW IS ANY SONG FROM American BEAUTY/American PSYCHO BETTER THAN THIS LOVELY MASTERPIECE? This song lyrics are so tender. It's the "us-against-the-world" anthem!

I totally agree with the comment below me. This is such a beautiful song! And American Beauty/American Psycho is mere crap.

75 Pavlove

Holy crap. I can't believe that people haven't heard of this song. The meaning is lithe and brooding, and the overall a bittersweet beat. Tell me you don't feel a strum of pain when listening. It's so god

A very underrated song because it's a bonus track of the most underrated Fall Out Boy record. So many people ignore the existence of this song, and it's a top quality track.

Just incredible. From the opening to the powerful and painful lyrics this song is amazing.

Best fall out song ever, if you haven't listened to it listen to it... now, asap

76 Rat a Tat

This song deserves a lot more credit than people give it. Its a great song only thing letting it down is courtney love.

Every time I hear this song, I just can't help but get up and dance and sing along. Kind of disappointed that The Kids Aren't Alright isn't on this list, but this song is probably my second fave.

This is hands down the most underrated song in FOB history. it's so good and I wish it was on the list. it should at least be in the top 20.

I absolutely love this song! So upbeat, yet meaningful. But I'm not sure why everybody disses Courtney Love in it... I personally love the beginning!

Song is amazing no one knows about it! Listen and youll see!

Really underrated. It has very sweet lyrics and a nice sound.

Listening to it right now

78 Champagne for My Real Friends Real Pain for My Sham Friends

Gotta love the beginning riff. Gotta love it.



79 Sophmore Slump or Comeback of the Year

That amazing high at the end of the song is reason enough to have this on your playlist, but this song offers much more. Amazing vocals and guitar work. In my opinion, worth of top 10.

My favorite fall out boy song, EVER! Just an amazing song in general... I think it is probably better than most of the songs in the top 10. VOTE THIS SONG UP!

"We're the therapists, pumping through your speakers. Delivering just what you need. Wear it, and poised. We're the best boys... "
That's my favorite line of this fantastic song.

What this is legit the best song

80 My Heart is the Worst Kind of Weapon

I love this song so much. It is pure genius. Even though it is one of their first songs, it is also one of the best. I especially like the idea of someone who has the ability to completely destroy someone using just their words.

The lyrics in this song are genius and so moving. I'm a huge fob fan and this song is my favorite, especially the acoustic version. Definitely worth a listen.

It should be at least at the top ten! Anger shows beautifully in this song. If not my FOB's favorite, this is one of them.

The acoustic version of this song is really worth it.
