why did the return of fall out boy mean this going away ???
I don’t usually do this, but I felt moved to answer. And I hope this doesn’t read like an indictment of the original poster because it’s definitely NOT intended to be. This Patrick still exists, obviously. The guy who’s wildly gyrating his hips when he sings about the friction in your jeans is a product of “this.” The guy who’s bantering on stage every night is a product of “this.” He did Soul Punk 100% on his own and after touring that album with the musicians he assembled to support him, he realized sometimes they had better ideas of how things should sound. And when he pitched a new Fall Out Boy record to Joe, one of the things that got Joe to say yes was Patrick’s insistence that he contribute to the songwriting. I don’t think those things are a coincidence. ”This” makes SRAR possible.
I know that what you’re really saying is “why does the return of Fall Out Boy mean this style going away?” And my first reaction was, “Why does packaging matter so much?” But after a moment I realized that it does, and the answer that came to mind inspired me to respond. The reason “this” had to go away is because “this” is Patrick Stump. But Patrick Stump is not Fall Out Boy. As they once printed on a t-shirt, Fall Out Boy is a gang and that gang has a uniform. Every tour since Nintendo Fusion in the fall of 2005, they’ve worn coordinating outfits to some degree. I think it represents the unity of the band. Because imagine if they took the stage with Joe in a Melvins shirt, Pete in the half-dress/Jon Snow look, Patrick in a tuxedo, and Andy mostly naked (because let’s face it, that never changes). That would be four individuals on stage playing together. Fall Out Boy is a band.

Haha thank ya. Although I looked like a hobo today post-gym and post-pool cleaning. I feel like “cute” must be my adjective. I was having this conversation with HER a few weeks ago about how anytime I get a compliment, it’s usually that I’m “cute.”
IDK if this is a good thing or a bad thing!
