Flashback Friday: Fall Out Boy LIVE In 2002

Maybe it’s because I have been reading Pete Wentz‘s new book Gray, or perhaps it’s because Fall Out Boy have reemerged to the forefront of music, but this old footage of FOB playing at the Showplace Theatre in Buffalo NY in February of 2002 is making my heart ache. Thank you Quiet Country Audio.

See, Pete’s new book details the beginning (my guess is the book takes place in 2003) of the band’s career alongside his personal trial and tribulations at the time, so seeing this old footage is making the story resonate even more. Take a look at this old footage of FOB trying to win over fans. #musicrules.

What do you think of this old FOB footage?
