Patrick Stump is one of the most iconic emo vocalists (and in general.) The scene wouldn’t be the same without him. And to think, he auditioned to be the drummer of Fall Out Boy. This man has an incredible vocal range, and with certain songs, it brings us to tears. We already know every Fall Out Boy song, so let’s take a moment to talk about our favorite songs that he was featured in.
‘All Your Heart’ By Transit
Ah, Transit. How we miss them so. But we’ll always be grateful for this song off of their 2011 album, Listen And Forgive. We feel like this one tends to get overlooked a little bit since they weren’t in the Fueled By Ramen circle. If you haven’t, please listen to this immediately.
‘Everything Is Alright’ By Motion City Soundtrack
A goated emo song, fr. This is probably Motion City Soundtrack’s most well-known song and also frequently played at your local emo nite. Patrick isn’t listed in the song title, but he’s there. While the song is already amazing, he truly adds to the last part of the song where his vocals shine through.
‘Cupid’s Chokehold’ by Gym Class Heroes
Patrick was featured on a few different tracks from Gym Class Heroes’ 2005 album, The Papercut Chronicles. (Side note: we recommend listening to this album if you haven’t.) But this one is our favorite. This iconic song had everyone in a ‘chokehold’ in the mid-2000s. Specifically, the chorus featuring Patrick. It’s just too catchy not to sing along.
‘Guilty Pleasure’ By Cobra Starship
Did you know that he was one of the producers for Cobra Starship’s 2007 album, ¡Viva La Cobra!? He was featured in a lot of the songs, as well. But this is one of our favorites from the album. We’d call it a ‘guilty pleasure,’ but there’s absolutely no reason to feel guilty about it!
‘Open Happiness’ By Various Artists
Even though this song was originally written for a Coca-Cola commercial, it changed lives. It needed to be released as a single, so they did! It also features some amazing artists like Cee-Lo Green, Janelle Monae, and Travie McCoy. We love how all these different artists harmonize together. It really is a way to ‘open happiness.’
