Fall Out Boy - Sugar, We're Going Down

19 September Critic Jonni 1 Comments

Fall Out Boy has never made my blog before, I can actually imagine all your shocked faces! They were introduced to me by Tink09 and Miss Moirae, who couldn't believe I had never heard of them (at the time). They're currently on a hiatus due to the band wanting to explore different musical projects that they couldn't do with Fall Out Boy. The band consisted of Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Andy Hurley and Joe Trohman. Will they get back together? Who knows...? But one thing is for sure, their music will never stop being liked and listened to.

"Sugar We're Going Down" was written by Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump.  It charted at number 8 in both the UK and US charts, which is surprisingly high, due to the genre of the song, however it does beg to question whether this music video helped with the sales.

The music video is both narrative and performance, which always makes a good music video, And the fact that there is a strong message about bullying and how people react to it and the reasons why bullying goes on.

The band performing is hilarious to watch, you have Patrick Stump being pretty serious, and you know that he believes in the song, then you have Pete Wentz doing stupid stuff that always makes me laugh, I just can't help it.

The ending for the storyline is surprising, although it does give a reason to why the father is so against them getting together. But this is what confuses me, as it's a bit like Shrek 2 and I have never understood why they have a vendetta against a certain someone because they are similar, maybe it's because they want better for their daughter, but I still don't think it's a good enough reason.

Overall a great song that charted surprisingly high, the music video has everything we need and more, I just can't help feeling sorry for the guy with the antlers, and then laughing lots at Pete Wentz, I just can't win can I? Anyhow this is a perfect music video so how could I not give it this rating?
