10 years ago, Fall Out Boy forever changed our scene with the release of their sophomore studio album, From Under The Cork Tree. In the latest issue of AP, Pete Wentz looks back on the record with APTV Manager Cassie Whitt , and how things got a little tense during the recording process. “Patrick and I didn’t always agree in the studio,” he admits. At the time, Pat and Pete were living in an apartment together, so it’s no bombshell that there was some irritability in the air. The two shared (and still do) a brother-like bond—haven’t you ever bickered with your sibling or best friend before?
Are there any secrets about the recording you are willing to reveal now?
Patrick and I didn’t always agree in the studio. There was always verbal fighting and a couple physical fights. That was an interesting period.
Is there anything people should absolutely know about this album?
It was me on a whim. It was never meant to be this album that people would even talk about 10 years later. [Laughs.]
