This audiobook read by Nancy McClean traces Fall Out Boy's rise to fame, from their time in the Chicago hardcore scene to being mainstream pop-punk leaders, playing festivals, and being photographed for magazine covers. The Document ties this material together with candid band interviews, in which they openly talk about their career-changing moments. Learning about how the members met, bonded over Neurosis, and came up with their Simpsons-referencing band name will be most interesting to hardcore fans, but this volume of the U.K. biography series is executed well enough that it could be an entertaining one-time listen for anyone interested in the group's rise to stardom.
