Patrick Stump
We could be hardcore, but I'm not screaming.
Stump quotes
Joe Trohman: (referring to Pete and Patrick) You guys should just make lo- You guys should get married.
Patrick: We are. "Fall Out Boy Hard Rock Live Interview (Dance, Dance)"
Stump
There was a weird moment where—I was still a drummer, I always saw myself as a drummer—and we got nominated for a Grammy, that was really crazy, and I was sitting there and Stevie Wonder was on stage and I remember thinking "Wow, I really need to take [singing] more seriously!"




Stump Patrick quotes
I don't think we care anymore about what we're gonna do. We're just gonna be our own band and we're not gonna pretend to be any more rock or any less whatever than we are. We're kinda hardcore kids, we're kinda a metal band in this weird way, we're kinda into soul, we're kinda into folk, we're kinda into a lot of stuff and we're just gonna do whatever we do.

Patrick: One of my favorite rumors about myself is that I am 31, which is just about 10 years off, so...
Pete: He's 41, you mother fuckers.
Patrick Stump quotes
I'm probably the only guy in the world that likes to eat black licorice.

I think one of the things if you look at minimalism or expressionism, there's various movements in modern composition that I think you can see really natural relations in pop music, so I mean I always look to that in pop music.
Stump Patrick quotes
It seems to me like people want to fight just for the fight, not for the ending result and I think that's crap, I think that's silly.
Stump
I don't mind if someone thinks I'm a sell out. I go to bed happy knowing I do what I do and I'm not doing anything for reasons of money, and if I were trying to pick up chicks, I'm doing a horrible job. And if I wanted to drive awesome cars, I'm doing a really bad job there too.
Stump Patrick
Carpool to save gas. 'Cause I know you're in grade school and driving is like, what you do.
Patrick Stump
Reich and John Cage were pretty big influences on this record (Folie A Deux) in weird ways in that you wouldn't necessarily hear any of it - nothing ends up sounding like either of them, but I think just methodology and things like that ended up on the record in various ways.




Patrick Stump quotes
We're meant for each other 'cause we smell bad.
Patrick Stump
He's writing what I'm singing, and I'm writing what he's playing.
Stump quotes
I did my civic duty. Haha I'm driving a Civic! Whoa!
Stump Patrick
Quiet IS the new loud.
Stump Patrick quotes
I hear all sorts of things slung at us, one of my favorites being the "boy-band" accusation. I'm like, 'Boy band? I'm fat! If we were a boy band, I'd look good, I'd dance and I'd be charming - so what the fuck are you talking about?' I write songs, that's all I do.

Right now I'm in Hollywood—I don't like Hollywood, it's not really my style. But I've found my own little niche here where it's not bad. It's one of those things where I've been on an extended work trip here for 2 years. I still technically live in Chicago and I'm dying to get back. That's one of the big things for me, I go back to Chicago when I want to hang out. I'm weirdly very proud of my city, and I hope, God willing, I die there.
Patrick Stump quotes
I'm not a drummer anymore, on my gravestone, if there is one, if anyone writes anything about me besides hopefully being a dad, it would be that I sang in my band when I was in my 20s. So I was like, "Yeah, I should probably focus on this a little more," so I just practiced a lot. (When asked about his singing.)
Patrick Stump
There's so many accusations that are so ridiculous about Pete Wentz that are taken as the gospel—people just assume that he posted pictures of his penis on the internet. That is the stupidest fucking thing thing I've ever heard. Why on earth would you ever do that?
Stump Patrick
If you're trying to get a lot of money and attention and cars and just stuff like that, being in a band is a really bad way to do it, because it takes a lot of work, it's constant work, it's very grueling, and you don't really have time to spend money. So that would probably not even make my top 10 list of ways to make a lot of money, because records aren't selling anymore. The richest musician in America still doesn't even come close to a mid-level athlete.
