[2/?] albums turning 10 this year:  from under the cork tree

The album was Fall Out Boy’s breakthrough mainstream success. The title is taken from a line in the 1936 children’s book “The Story of Ferdinand" by Munro Leaf. In the story, a bull named Ferdinand would rather sniff flowers under a cork tree than participate in fights. Commenting on the record’s lyrical themes, Wentz said: "There is honesty in our music, and I think people appreciate it. We have never dumbed down to teenagers by writing songs about being in high school and having your locker jammed… We have always had the respect that they are going to figure out these songs for themselves and come up with their own interpretations.”
