Fall Out Boy (yes, Fall Out Boy)

Guess who has the new #1 album on the Billboard 200 chart?  It’s Fall Out BoySave Rock and Roll!  Yes!  They’ve come to save rock and roll from… from… something.  Actually, does it really need saving?  Remember the post I made back in September, about rock music and music cycles?  Are Fall Out Boy just… well… riding the cycle?

Being their “comeback” album, the title Save Rock and Roll may have more to do with their own musical path rather than some grand, sweeping revolution.  However, it may be no coincidence that the timing is just right for this album to hit #1.  Hey, if Gotye could have the #1 song of 2012, anything is possible for Fall Out Boy in 2013, right?

Up until several weeks ago, I had never heard any songs by Fall Out Boy (I guess I’m that far removed from their demographic).  Now I’m hearing them in promos for The Vampire Diaries (I’m also outside the TV show’s demographic, but that doesn’t stop me from watching the CW network).

Anyhow, if you’d like a taste of the album, here’s the very epic sounding, Muse-y lead single.

I started out as a child, then things kind of grew from there.  I spend way too much time around computers and radios, but I do like to take a break once in a while.  I'm not a real doctor, but I played one on the radio in college. A bit later on, I wrote an article that was published in COMPUTE!'s Gazette (Commodore 64/128 magazine). I also think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.
