A copy of Fall Out Boy’s first demo tape is being raffled off tomorrow by Christopher Gutierrez (HeyChris) to benefit The Catcade, a Chicago nonprofit cat rescue/arcade combo.
This is the first and original Fall Out Boy demo tape. Maybe like 50 ever made. One of the few pieces of early-2000s pop punk history I have collected that I said I would never sell, is now being raffled off to raise money for my non-profit charity @thecatcade – for every $10 donated between now and Saturday at TheCatcade.org , your name will be entered into a drawing and the winner will be chosen live and fairly this Saturday. Good luck.
Donations can be made here.
Fall Out Boy performed “Young and Menace” on Fallon last night.
Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy talked with ET about their new video for “Young and Menace.”
“The concept of the video is realizing that your place in the world is maybe not just what you thought it is, or thought it was growing up,” he says. “I grew up as a weird kid in a place where I felt like I didn’t fit in. It wasn’t until finding punk rock and stuff, that I felt like I found other people who similarly felt like they didn’t fit in.”
Fall Out Boy talked with NME about their new album and how it’s about halfway complete so far:
Well, the album is not finished. We’re about halfway done. But songs like ‘Young And Menace’ are the furthest left, like you know – the wildest part of the album. The song will make sense on the album and the album is like – we’ve updated the software since the last album, so I think the album will sound different to people.

What I’ve heard is that a new music video is done, so maybe that’s what’s planned? Beside that, I’m in the dark like everyone else right now.
Update: During the previews at a few movie theaters a clip is running (you can see it at the seven minute mark) that highlights next Friday’s date.

It’s pretty good, but I think the band would have played it just a tad faster.
Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy posted a little blog to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Infinity on High.
this one was strange. it was transitional. If FUCT was the caterpillar album- Infinity On High was the cocoon one. we had been on tour around the world nonstop but hadn’t really seen any of the magazine covers we were on or had any perspective of seeing our videos on TRL- it was odd how everything was changing but it felt like we were in a time capsule… this record would bring so many ideas from jay z doing the intro to working with baby face on “thnks fr th mmrs” to the flight 101 saga (3 shows in a day in ny, chicago, and la)… but first and foremost it documented this blur that had become our lives. this record more than any of the others has always reminded me of night time- both the anxiety of insomnia and the peace of being awake when everyone else is asleep. i remember before we released it i used like a security blanket listening and trying to fall asleep. i really appreciate everyone who gave this one a chance.

I’ll always remember this album for getting to sneakily release the first song, “The Carpal Tunnel of Love,” and seeing AP.net screenshots up on MTV. (And ten years later I feel pretty vindicated in my praise for the album after getting called all kinds of names originally.)
“Thnks fr th Mmrs” remains one of my favorite Fall Out Boy songs and I’m feeling in the mood to go give it another spin.
