Since their humble beginnings in a Chicago suburb in 2001, Fall Out Boy has influenced countless pop rock bands to follow.

Their mainstream breakout in 2005, with “Sugar We’re Goin Down” and, later, “Dance Dance,” propelled the band to new heights—as well as criticisms from former fans who felt the band was selling out.

Despite the outcry, Fall Out Boy continues to produce new music, experimenting constantly with different sounds, genre influences, featured guests, and remixes.  Here is the complete discography of Fall Out Boy, including all mixtapes, albums, singles, and features.
