Fall Out Boy Fires Fists During Show

January 9, 2007 12:00 AM ET

Our friends from Fall Out Boy launched a little riot from the stage at their Sunday night show at the Sunshine Theatre in Albuquerque. Bassist Pete Wentz completely fell out after catching sight of a security guard hassling one of their roadies. When Wentz saw the altercation, he threw down his mic, jumped off the stage and threw down with the security dude. After the scuffle, Wentz picked up his mic once more and addressed the audience thusly: "That's what you get when you fuck with my friends — fucking asshole!"

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
