Fall Out Boy Fail World Record Attempt

6 years ago

Chicago pop-punkers Fall Out Boy were set to rock their way into the record books this week, attempting to set a record for the shortest amount of time to play all 7 continents in the world. But it seems fate was not on their side - and Pete is NOT happy about it!

To get into the Guiness Book of Records they would have needed to play a gig on every continent by Thursday, which they were well on track to do - if it wasn't for damn Antarctica and their dodgy weather!

Due to the sucky weather, the band and their management peeps decided to can the mission and Pete has taken to his blog to vent his frustrations!

"It's an utter f***ing disappointment... It's so insane. We had this idea, and then to not be able to fulfill it is just disappointing, especially when you put it out there... It's the worst feeling I've felt in Fall Out Boy, [we were,] like, two hours away from being able to do it... I read someone compared it to Geraldo opening Capone's vault, but it's worse than that, because, like, Capone's stuff is in there, you just can't get the light on. There's no spin for it; we got two hours away from Antarctica and we can't go."

Geeez, try not to be so emo about everything Pete! It's not the end of the world!
