Drawing influences from a healthy wealth of rock, pop and hardcore, Fall Out Boy has constructed a distinctive sound of unforgettable melodies and quick stop-and-start breakdowns that mischievously flirt with clever lyrics and multi-faceted guitar hooks. Having paired off in other local combos -- Shaant and guitarist Jeff Czum in one, bassist Fred Cimato and drummer Tom Falcone in another -- Cute Is What We Aim For came together in January 2005, driven by the four members and their desire to cast their own upbeat spin onto modern pop. Plain White T's are an up-and-coming Chicago band. Along with their rapidly growing fan base in the Midwest, the band has toured the South from Texas to Arizona and played up and down California with some great bands. Melding elements of rap, rock, R&B and funk into one cohesive and melodic sound, upstate New York's Gym Class Heroes show musical some real dexterity.
