10 years ago, we were graced with Fall Out Boy‘s breakthrough album, From Under The Cork Tree. On May 3rd, 2005, the LP debuted and sold 68,000 units in its first week, which placed the band at No. 9 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and launched them into stardom.
From Under The Cork Tree has since gone double-platinum, receiving worldwide recognition.
Near the end of the album’s lyric booklet (my personal favorite part of a physical CD), there is a quote that reads, “If you aren’t a bit depressed, then you aren’t paying attention to what’s going on in the world—get busy living or get busy dying.” Even now, those words should send shivers up your spine.
