Pete Wentz


Once you get past the emo looks and rocker style, you'll find there’s more to Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz than meets the eye. Arriving in the world on June 5, 1979 in the Chicago suburb of Wilmette, Illinois, Pete was born to rock and as a teenager, became immersed in the Chicago hardcore punk scene. He bounced from band to band until forming Fall Out Boy (named after a character on The Simpsons) with Joe Trohman, Patrick Stump and Andy Hurley. The band released their first full-length album, Take This to Your Grave, on May 6, 2003. They shopped around for a major label and in mid-2003 were signed to Island Records. Their first major label release, From Under the Cork Tree, was released in May of 2005 and sold over 2.5 million copies. With their pop/punk sound and their video-ready looks, the album’s lead single ‘Sugar, We're Goin’ Down’ topped the charts, produced a number one video on MTV and earned the band a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist in 2006. The second single off the album, ‘Dance, Dance,’ became their second top ten and highest charting single. Everything the band touched continued to turn to gold, as their third album, Infinity on High, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 260,000 copies during its first week of release in February of 2007, mainly due to the strength of its lead single, ‘This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race.’ Pete isn’t only a rocker, he’s a style icon - his line of clothing, Clandestine Industries, is sold online and in retail chain Nordstrom. As well known as he is for his music, Pete’s almost as well known for his relationship with singer Ashlee Simpson. The two, who had been friends for almost a year before hooking up, announced their engagement in April of 2008 and the rumors of marriage and pregnancy have followed them ever since. Whether he’s a husband, Dad or man of fashion, Pete will always be a rocker at heart.

    I do agree with all the ideas you have presented for your post. They're really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very quick for starters. May just you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

    You really make it appear so easy together with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually one thing that I believe I might never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very broad for me. I am taking a look forward in your subsequent post, I’ll try to get the cling of it!
