    Lets see, lack of originality/imagination?
    Lack off good singing?
    Good music?
    Wait sorry, lack of music!
    Lack of lyrics that do anything for me?

    They did a cover of "Walk" that made me want to die, for a start.

    patrick stump is actually quite a talented singer and there are so many bands that are less original. they actually experimented a little with there last two albums, but when bands try to experiment they are accused of selling out.

    They made the genre they were told they were. Are you basing this answer on hearing 'Dance Dance' on Q two summers ago?

    as for the lack of music. that either means their music is that bad it isnt music or its literal. To label 4 albums as not music is a bit weird.

    I can't even remember what I heard of them. However I do remember my reaction. It was the same reaction I had to panic at the disco.
    Apart from I don't think fall out boy have tried to cover radiohead, so they don't have that charge of treason against them.

    Exactly. Imagine getting told what music to play. That would be selling out. Playing the music everyone asks for would probably result in more sales. But they felt the need to be artistic and satisfy their own needs.

    I wish people would allow them to be artists and express themselves.

    They've gone really mainstream, bland, appealing to the typical hyper girly-teenage audience, quite generic, they aren't anything new. They don't produce this definitive sound that is instantly recognisable, they incorporated a **** load of pop into rock music, which also doesn't appeal very well to classic rock fans. This is further backed up by their dire inability to even play the goddamn instruments right live - plus they're only in it for the money; which doesn't go down too well with rock fans.

    You call that music?

    **** me...

    Why don't you kids do the world a favour and educate yourselves when it comes to music. Mainstream is not necessarily good take Miley Cyrus, N Dubz and Jedward for example.

    Panic are pretty poor. I want to like them so much but i just dont.

    FOBs singles are aimed at the tweens.

    Perhaps because they are akin to a toilet?

    Stump does have a brilliant voice, but I think that's the only thing going for them.

    because they suck i was them live and they sucked even worse.
