9 Ways to Get Ready for Fall Out Boy's Return

#1This Ain't a Scene, It's a God Damn Reunion

After rumors hit the Internet just over a week ago, Fall Out Boy couldn't keep it a secret any longer: the dudes have officially announced they're reuniting! Well, according to the band, it's not technically a reunion "because they never broke up." To-ma-to, to-mah-to.

Whether it's a "reunion" or a "return," who cares! The important part is we've got a new FOB song to memorize ("My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark"), even more new music on the way—their sixth album, Save Rock and Roll, is due out May 7—and a six-week tour, with the boys hitting the road starting May 14 in Milwaukee. 

But things have changed a bit since we last heard from the band. Fall Out Boy's most successful album, Infinity on High, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2007. Back then, Twitter was still in its infancy and no one knew what a Honey Boo Boo was. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

Refresh your memory on the Fall Out Boy of yore with a trip back through the scene (or arms race) in the mid-2000s. Do you still remember your MySpace password?
