Anyone that knows me, knows Fall Out Boy are my favourite band. With their M A N I A tour creeping up on us, I thought I’d jot down a list of my top 10 favourite FoB videos. Why you ask? Because they have some downright great videos and it’d be a crime to not share them. I won’t bore you with any more of my pointless ranting, these are my Top 10 Fall Out Boy Videos…
#10 – Dead On Arrival (2003)
Videos like this make me wish I grew up in America and could watch Fall Out Boy play tiny little shows with no barrier and 100 crowd surfers. This was also their first music video.
#9 – Thnks Fr Th Mmrs (2007)
Back when no one knew or even cared who Kim Kardashian was, she made out with Pete Wentz. This video always gives me a headache from all the squealing monkeys.
#8 – This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race (2007)
I love a good cameo and this video is full of them. This whole video is organised chaos and I love it.
#7 – Sugar, We’re Goin Down (2005)
Fall Out Boy are known for straight out weird videos and this ain’t an exception.
#6 – Irresistible (2015)
This proves my point that Fall Out Boy are literally just tiny emos. And for all the old school FOB fans, how’s that Bedussey clip at the end! So much friggin nostalgia!
#5 – I Don’t Care (2008)
I don’t know what’s funnier; Pete Wentz in a dress, sweet little Patrick being an asshole or Fall Out Nuns. Fall Out Boy really love cameos and I’m here for it.
#4 – “The Take Over, The Breaks Over” (2007)
Any video with a dog in it gets a huge yes from me. Pete’s dog Hemmingway is the highlight of this video 110%.
#3 – Uma Thurman (2015)
This video looks like it was so much fun to film. Who the hell wouldn’t want to be Fall Out Boy’s PA for the day?! I would pay very good money to do any of the things in this video!
#2 – Dance, Dance (2005)
The dance at the end fuckin kills me every time! They all look so sweet in their suits and I am here for awkward Patrick.
and the winner is…
#1 – A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More “Touch Me” (2006)
Not only is this song one of my favourite Fall Out Boy songs ever, this video is just so damn good. Vampire hunters, Pete an actual vampire and a vampire mob gang. Riveting stuff. Again, cameos. William Beckett, Brendon Urie, Spencer Smith, Travie McCoy and everyone’s favourite roadie, Dirty. We miss Dirty. Banger of a song, banger of a video.
