Fall Out Boy: Boys don't get prizes

Having sold his creativity for a case full of deodorant early in the year, it's not like Pete Wentz and Fall Out Boy have any dignity left to lose.

Which is why they're probably happy to whine about not being nominated for a Grammy:

"A fifty-year-old white man shouldn't decide whether we are relevant or not – and he doesn't.

"The first reaction is jealousy mixed with a slight sense of entitlement. We just want to be a part of your club...We play the events for you and the right parties all the time.

"It's kind of like being invited to a birthday party and then not allowed to eat the cake."

It would be cruel to point out that Pete Wentz is closer in demographic to a fifty year old white guy than anyone who is 'relevant'; it might, however, be worth mentioning how Wentz doesn't mind their sense of whart's relevant when they're signing off on using their marketing budgets to prop up the band's bottom line.

The real question, though, is in what way does Wentz think winning a Grammy is a sign of whether a band has "relevance" or not?

I'd say it's more like being a prostitute and then wondering why none of your clients want to marry you.

Is that headline an attempt at a pun on "Boys Don't Cry"? If so, it's one of your worst puns ever, Simon :)

I'd have gone for 'Wentz Don't Win Prizes', in a nod to the much-maligned early-90's Danny Baker show 'Pets Win Prizes'. Granted, it was terrible when Dale Winton was in charge, but Baker made it his own.

Having said that, I'd probably never take headline-writing advice from someone who used to watch 'Pets Win Prizes'.
