Winner – Fall Out Boy – In the latest rock band to play the suspense -surprise axis, the popular in the 2000s emo band Fall Out Boy reformed after a four year hiatus. released a, frankly, lousy single and sold out a huge US tour, just about instantaneously, With unwieldy song names like "I Slept With Somebody In Fall Out Boy And All I Got Was This Stupid Song Written About Me" how can they not have a fanatical fan base? As Helen noted, fans who were 17 in 2004, are in their 20s now and snapping up tickets. As for Patrick's "it had to be the right time" to reform comment. That time would be when you discover you have no career whatsoever outside Fall Out Boy.
Loser – Superstorm Nemo – The weather in the Northeast has become the equivalent of a mosh pit every time you go to work in the morning, you get battered and bruised and return home the worse for the experience. what is with the cutesy storm names? I blame the weather people for the danger people put themselves in. First Sandy, like an Australian High School girl in her late 20s, and now "Nemo" -a cute little fish looking for Mama. Perhaps if they called it "Superstorm You Are Gonna Die A Terrible Death If You Get Out Of Bed" people would pay attention. Needless to add I missed the Don Giovanni Showcase.
