1. Fall Out Boy
By far the most famous band to name itself after a Simpsons reference is pop-punk band Fall Out Boy, which took its name from the sidekick of Bart Simpson’s favorite superhero, Radioactive Man. The name was apparently suggested by an audience member at one of the band’s early shows.

Speaking of the show’s cultural impact, one of the bands to guest on The Simpsons — Fall Out Boy— actually took their name from an episode that aired 14 years before they appeared on the show.[…]

Having played a set of killer (very rapidly sold-out) intimate shows last March 2013, followed by a run of arena shows in October, Chicago pop punk connoisseurs Fall Out Boy are finally heading over to play a festival down under for the first time. Suffice it to say, we couldn’t be more stoked to see the four-piece sweating it out on the Soundwave stages in the harsh Aussie sun.
So, we thought it only fitting to celebrate six weird and wonderful things Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley have gotten up to in their 13 years of being pop punk kings together… that most of us didn’t know, or simply forgot about.
But AMH Network never forget.
