We Apologize for Fall Out Boy


Recently reformed US pop punk-sters The Get Up Kids have apologised for inventing the most recent wave of Emo bands.

The band that formed in 1995, broke up in 2005 and reunited last year, are also particularly apologetic for being one of the main influences for Emo pin up stars Fall Out Boy.

Drowned in Sound reports that at a recent reunion gig guitarist James Suptic looked at the audience of eye-liner wearing, flicky-haired fey punks and said: “If this is the world we helped create then I apologise.”

He told the website that: “Honestly, I don’t often think about the state of emo. We played the Bamboozle fests this year and we felt really out of place. I could name maybe three bands we played with.

“It was just a sea of neon shirts to us … the punk scene we came out of and the punk scene now are completely different. It’s like glam rock now.”

Commenting on Fall Out Boys’ well publicised admiration for The Get Up Kids, Suptic added: “If a band gets huge and they say we inspired them – great. The problem is most of them aren’t very good. What does that say about us? I don’t know. Maybe we sucked.”

Im glad they are agaist this new ugly scene that has emerged..I am just confused why they decided to reform even though it will never be the same and they will probably not have the same effect on their audiences as they did when I was younger or even those kids before me. I just hope that they at least try to stay true with what they used to represent and dont end up becoming a giant hypocrite
