Watch Fall Out Boy Play “Bang The Doldrums” Live For The First Time

Fall Out Boy have been throwing out some pretty incredible surprises on their current tour. Their setlist is jam-packed with old and new favorites, giving something special no matter what sort of fan you are. And even inviting the one and only Mikey Way on stage to play “Saturday” with them. Nothing is off the table, and everything is possible. And that is how we end up with moments like them playing “Bang The Doldrums”.

Bang The Doldrums” originally appeared on the band’s 2007 album Infinity On High and is a stone-cold underrated classic. Like the best pirate shanty you’ve ever heard, it’s even more of a shock that is has NEVER been played live before. But that is what the Magic 8-Ball at these current shows is for. Throwing out surprises and doing things for the very first time.

And that is why on July 03 at the BMO Stadium in Los Angeles, the band played it for the first time. Now, it’s hard not to get all nostalgic in these situations. But hearing a song that has soundtracked so many album playthroughs for the last 15 years brings back memories of as many brilliant times as it does simpler times. And knowing that Fall Out Boy are enjoying getting the chance to play a song that they wrote that long ago after all this time, probably thinking that they may never, is even more special. From the crowd’s reaction to the smiles on their faces, it’s just wonderful.
