Over 10 years ago, a pop-punk band introduced themselves to the world with little care for the status quo and heavy strokes of eyeliner. Dark, deep, yet boyish, Fall Out Boy earned the praise of global audiences with lyrics like:

“I’m gonna make you bend and break (It sent you to me without wait), Say a prayer, but let the good times roll, In case God doesn’t show.”

“Thnks Fr Th Mmrs” (Thanks for the Memories) became an instant hit when released in 2007. Coming down from the time of Sum 41 and Blink 182, Fall Out Boy cemented themselves as serious contenders. This song is a staple in the pop punk music scene, and is not uncommon to find scattered throughout sporting events and television shows.
