Fall Out Boy’s attempt to set a world record by performing on all seven continents has failed. The band spent the last few days in Chile, waiting for air conditions over Antarctica to improve and debating renting a boat for a brief acoustic set in the Antarctic Circle. (Oh, how I wish they had dared.)
With time and money growing tight, they have admitted defeat. Pete Wentz could barely contain his disappointment: “It’s the worst feeling I’ve felt in Fall Out Boy. [We were,] like, two hours away from being able to do it. … I read that someone compared it to Geraldo opening Capone’s vault, but it’s worse than that, because, like, Capone’s stuff is in there, you just can’t get the light on. There’s no spin for it; we got two hours away from Antarctica and we can’t go.” No word from the unrocked, stormbound researchers who might give a rat’s ass.
