Fall Out Boy formed in 2001 in the suburbs of Chicago. By 2003, the group had released its first full-length (Evening Out with Your Girl) and signed a deal with Fueled by Ramen, a label owned by Less Than Jake drummer Vinnie Fiorello and his partner John Janick.



The group achieved its first taste of mainstream success with the 2003 record, 'Take This to Your Grave,' a pop-punk masterpiece that revitalized what had been a tired genre. It was after this record release that Real Magic TV caught up with Pete Wentz, bassist, on tour in New Jersey. RMTV did not only some magic with Pete, but had Pete call a fan live on the show as part of a Win A Call segment. Fans grew to love Fall Out Boy and their live shows grew in attendance.

After several high-profile tours, the band released its biggest-selling album to date, 2005s 'From Under the Cork Tree,' which landed two songs ('Sugar Were Going Down' and 'Dance Dance') in the Billboard Top Ten. The band was also nominated for a Grammy for Best New Artist. 

During this time, the group branched out creatively, with bassist Wentz refining his record label imprint Decaydance (home to Panic at the Disco) and singer Stump appearing as a guest singer and producer on a number of records, including the Gym Class Heroes hit Cupids Chokehold. The band also continued to support several non-profit groups, including Invisible Children, Reverb and Rock the Vote.
