○ Patrick wrote all the lyrics on this one, too.

○ Recorded in only 2 days - because it was so rushed, FOB was never really happy with it, and they don’t consider it a real album.

○ They were unpaid for the entire thing.

Trivia:

○ First FOB album with their current line up!

Chicago… features Justin Pierre of Motion City Soundtrack and Grenade Jumper features Jeff Warren of Knockout.

○ They all lied to their parents about where they were and what they were doing while they recorded this; Pete and Andy were both supposed to be in college.

○ They slept on floors, rarely bathed, and were so broke they had to get O’Keefe to buy them soda and PB&Js.

○ They were all straight edge when they recorded it.

○ Pete wrote all the lyrics for “Tell That Mick…” and Pros and Cons…, Patrick wrote all the lyrics for Grand Theft Autumn and Saturday, and the rest were a mix between the two.

○ A lot of Patrick’s lyrics were omitted because they were too gory.

○ Patrick had originally written Calm Before the Storm for EOWYGF, and he and Pete rewrote some parts for TTTYG.

○ During production, filming, and touring, they shared an apartment. Among other things, this included a root beer keg in one shower, pissing on the floor of the other shower, and Patrick killing a mouse accidentally and flinging it into a pile of clothes in Joe’s room where it stayed for weeks until Joe finally cleaned his room.

○ The original cover featured Patrick laying on his bed, but there was a Who poster in the background, so they had to change it for copyright issues. There’s still vinyls out there with the original cover, but they’re painfully rare (and expensive).

Original cover

My Heart Will Always Be the B-Side to My Tongue

Released:

Fueled By Ramen, 18 May 2004

Recorded:

Spring of 2004 in Chicago, Illinois.
Production by Sean O’Keefe.

Tracklist:

1. My Heart Is the Worst Kind of Weapon [X]
2. ‘It’s Not a Side Effect of the Cocaine, I Am Thinking It Must Be Love’ [X]
3. Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner (acoustic demo) [X]
4. Love Will Tear Us Apart (Original by Joy Division) [X]
5. Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy (acoustic) [X]

Trivia:

○ They all hate it. Like, they really regret this. They like to pretend it doesn’t exist. But the internet is forever bitch!! The internet is forever.

○ Release the Bats is a product of this. It was deemed too gross to have on the DVD, so they made it it’s own thing.

○ Oh, I guess that there’s a DVD at all is trivia.

Fun FOB Quotes

(on the unequal amount of attention Pete and Patrick get) We mean a lot to each other as musicians and as people but sometimes we start believing what people say about us: that the band is just two guys.” -Joe in a Rolling Stone interview

Q:is it ok to love patrick and you BOTH?

A: sure you could even love joe and andy. i bet you could fit us all in your tiny dark heart - Pete on his blog

“I hope that I’m still doing this in 10 years… in some form or another or at least I hope I still know these people” - Pete on the “My Heart will always be the B-side to my Tongue” DVD; people not person

“Pete always wanted to create a culture with the band where the band where it was about all four guys and not just one guy- Patrick on the TTTYG cover

Me on a first date: So what is your favorite Fall Out Boy album?

Them: That’s a hard question. Take This to Your Grave is such a pop-punk anthem, but I appreciate how emo From Under the Cork Tree is and Pete’s screams are a treasure. Then again, I feel like Infinity on High as a whole is under appreciated but has so many great, catchy songs. And while they’ve always been catchy, Folie à Deux is the epitome of catchy songs and even if they don’t make much sense, some of the lyrics really hit home. Believers Never Die was an A+ greatest hits album and honestly a great intro pack to FOB. Save Rock and Roll was an amazing comeback album though, but American Beauty/ American Psycho has some top-notch singles, and it makes me happy that I can jam to them on the radio. Oh but I can’t forget all those solid EP’s in between albums like PAX AM Days and My Heart Will Always Be the B-Side to My Tongue.

Me:

Me, stuffing breadsticks into my purse: We gotta go home and make out to the entire Fall Out Boy discography right now. You’re in.
