Like so many other great acts who got their start entertaining kids too young to drive to the record store, Fall Out Boy was never expected to last. Here we are though: It’s 2013, 10 years after their pop-punk debut, and the Illinois foursome, reunited behind the second chart-topping album of their career, are about to headline the Barclays Center, the same arena where Justin Timberlake recently accepted his VMA lifetime achievement award. That chart-topper, meanwhile, sold all those records for a reason: “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark” is a stomping rocker big enough to compete with festival-ready EDM and ambitious enough to beat Fun., another band on Fueled by Ramen, at their own game.
