Fall Out Boy

I'm still bemused as to why Fall Out Boy are so popular. They've not written a half decent song since "Sugar, We're Going Down" and in Patrick Stump they have a frontman with even less charisma than his surname.

Such is Pete Wentz's ego that he'll never admit that FOB are a busted flush, but the fact that they play no fewer than four cover versions this evening suggests that even they know that their back catalogue isn't up to much. And if that wasn't enough to annoy their fans - and boy were they complaining - they chose tracks by the likes of Akon and Huey Lewis and the News. "The Power Of Love" as performed by shouty twentysomethings, anyone? Nope, didn't think so.
