What the heck is up with these flippin' song titles?! Ugh! Is there any reason they need to do that? It's not cool, it's not funny. It just comes off as pretentious. Of course, Fall Out Boy is a pretentious emo band so I guess this is par for the course. Despite the song titles, I do like Fall Out Boy even though they're the "trendy" band out now. What can I say? They write a good hook and have catchy songs. Their lyrics are all about soured relationships - so that's annoying. Like they think they're really deep when all they are is young and stupid. Oh well... I think this one isn't quite as good as some of the later ones which is the opposite of some critics. But I've never cared what critics think...

Useless Fact: The vocalist sucks live... like all of these emo bands.
