Fall Out Boy Frontman Patrick Stump's Solo Project Sucks as Bad as His YouTube Channel

Ready to explode! Emo chubster Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy.
Remember Fall Out Boy, that quartet of silly midwestern emo dudes who shoved power chords down our throats in the early 2000s?

Well, they're on an indefinite hiatus. (Blame it on Ashley "Yoko" Simpson.) But their longtime chubby frontman, Patrick Stump, has a solo album due out this summer, and he's ready to explode.

No, that wasn't a fat joke. He's actually lost some weight. "Explode" is the name of the first single off his debut solo album, Soul Punk.

And yesterday, via the appropriately titled PatrickStump YouTube channel, the 27-year old pop rocker dropped a video for the track. 



Sorry, we should've warned you that it was a terrible song, and that the video was nothing more than stock footage of explosions inside static all-caps title text that reads "EXPLODE."

There couldn't be anything worse... Or could there? The answer is yes. Just check out some of Patrick Stump's other YouTube videos.

Here's Pat butchering Michael Jackson while wearing a tuxedo:



Then there's Pat butchering John Legend and Andre 3000's "Green Light" while wearing a tuxedo:



Here's a medley of Grammy-nomiated songs that Stump performed in front of a webcam while wearing a bow tie:



Thanks for the memories, Pat!

Well, guess what Idiots, guess the "review" was right. Because if you actually like his new "album", you are Idiots. ;)

While the review was a little harsh, I have to agree with victor; Patrick can't sing. In my opinion his voice sounds like drag queen singing its way too high pitch and his songs suck. May be if he stop singing like a girl and justian beaver wanna be songs there wouldn't be so much hate. And please stop dissing people for their opinion on him and grew up!

PS Here's the Twitter of the writer of this piece of shit. http://twitter.com/#!/Victor31...  He just wrote this to annoy people but if this guy ever wants to write a serious piece, this on your record when you google your name is not a good idea.

You call this journalism? What an absolute joke. Cheap weight related jikes (tagging Chubster, seriously?). The fact you got his name wrong and called him Pat which is normally a big deal, really does not matter when you're writing like an IDIOT. 

P.S Maybe you should ask Patrick Stump for some music journalism tips. He did after all write for The Rolling Stone and he was writing REAL articles unlike this trash.

Dude f*ck you, you dumbass, I hope karma comes back and bites your ass! He doesn't need to hire writers to write his songs for him, he worked his ass off to make Soul Punk perfect for everyone to be honest you're just a jealous hater who has no talent that's why you're slamming the guy with the real talent so you can shut the f*ck up and get a grip on your balls because you're gunna need them! Oh and you need a f*cking life you sad ass f*cker get some friends oh wait you can't because you waste your life writing bullshit like this! Do the whole world a favour and die or delete this stupid blog post!

Also, I seriously think Patrick Stump should sue this "journalist" or the "newspaper" for even posting this, it's straight out defamation.

victor gonzales should go shut up and die. Patrick Stump is one of the few artists out there that actually make music for the fun of it, and do it without any cheap music industry things like auto-tune. He doesn't need to hire staffwriters to write lyrics for him, he writes them himself and they're meaningful and clever, along with his music. He also self-produces his Soul Punk album (it's my favourite album even though it hasn't even come out yet. It's so awesome, I already know) and plays over 10 instruments. Pop artists can't even do any of that. As for Fall Out Boy, they're my #1 favourite band. Patrick Stump is the best artist ever! I provided my reasoning above. Did gonzales provide an argument at all? Absolutely not. He's a jealous **** who can't write an article. Did you pass english classes at school? Or are you like a kid in Year 5 who rages because of some justin bieber related thing?

wish the Miami New Times would put more effort in covering local bands instead of talking shit about old bands that aren't very relevant. This city gets criticized (with good reasons) for not having true fans of homegrown art, sports, music, etc. or just pride in our own communities. it'll never happen if our local zine/blog/paper (whatever you wanna call this) continues to play the FOX NEWS angle and neglects any pride in it's locals

wow be more of an asshole patrick stumps voice is amazing, and you know what he was fucking cute chubby!! hes trying to do what he wanted and sing... and he CAN sing, his voice is beautiful, the songs might not be perfect but we dont know what the album has, im looking forward to it quite a bit. im just worried, producers are going to make him sing and do music that isnt right for his voice. but he is an amazing singer.

HOW THE FUCK COULD YOU SAY THAT ABOUT SUCH A TALENTED MAN?! AT LEAST HE'S OUT THERE TRYING TO ACHIEVE SOMETHING RATHER THAN SITTING BEHIND A COMPUTER WRITING "REVIEWS"!

The headline of this article is called "Talking Shit." And "Shit" pretty much sums up Victor Gonzales' entire life's achievement.

How could something so horribly personal and vitriolic even be considered a "review?" I'm all for creative criticism, but this had no musical critique or discussion of Patrick's work whatsoever.

Victor Gonzales, you really should be ashamed of yourself man.

Dude, you have NOTHING good to say... People should ban you from the internet to make sure that you NEVER write a "review" again. F#ck you, hater.
