A second band that was inspired by The Simpsons is Fall Out Boy, an American alternative and pop punk rock band. They named themselves after the Robin sidekick parody character Fall Out Boy, who has made several appearances in The Simpsons episodes.

The band recalled in interviews that during a show in Chicago they asked the audience a suggestion for a band name. One fan shouted out, “Fall Out Boy!” and the rest is history.
