SONG: “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)”
GROUP: Fall Out Boy
ALBUM: “Save Rock and Roll” (Released 2013)
When other runners ask me what group do I listen to most when I hit the road, one band instantly comes to mind- “Fall Out Boy.” In fact, I’ve had at least one, if not several, Fall Out Boy songs on every single race mix I’ve ever created.
They are my “go to” group for running music, hands down.
This Chicago suburb based “pop punk” band formed in 2001, drawing heavy inspiration from the local hardcore punk scene. Building steam with their first album “Take This To Your Grave,” the band really took off with their sophomore effort “From Under the Cork Tree.” Two singles from the album “Sugar, We’re Going Down” and “Dance Dance” both cracked the Billboard Top 10 and gained Fall Out Boy national notoriety.
