EDITORS’ NOTES

On their first proper studio album, Fall Out Boy set the bar against which all future '00s emo would be measured. Anchored by Patrick Stump's golden-throated yelps, the record draws on chugging pop-punk ("Dead on Arrival"), hook-fuelled hardcore (“Saturday”), and '90s Midwest emo ("Chicago Is So Two Years Ago"), with Pete Wentz’s unclean vocals giving the whole thing a reckless, cathartic edge. Top it off with inventive, vivid lyrics about suburban ennui, crippling heartbreak, and poisonous relationships, and the results are momentous.
