14. srpna 2009 v 23:42 | LiL Pete |  BASIC INFORMATION

Take This to Your Grave is the second studio album by American rock band Fall Out Boy. It is the group's first release under the Fueled by Ramen label and was released on May 6, 2003. The album title is taken from a line from the lyrics of "The Patron Saint of Liars and Fakes", which reads "Take this to your grave, and I'll take it to mine". It is the first album to feature Andy Hurley. The Album is Certified Gold in the US.


Album information

After the initial release, a limited edition 12" vinyl copy of Take This to Your Grave was released. In addition to the regular album tracks, it also had a special dance remix to their hit song, "Grand Theft Autumn". The vinyl was limited to one pressing of 500 copies of a green camouflage version, and one 500-copy pressing of a black vinyl version. Both versions also came with six giant trading cards. After that, it was re-released again on January 25, 2005 as Take This to Your Grave: Director's Cut, which included two bonus tracks as well as bonus footage.
"Dead On Arrival", "Saturday", and "Homesick at Space Camp" were recorded as a demo session in two days, almost a year before going back into the studio to record seven other songs that would eventually make up the entire album. "Grand Theft Autumn" and "Grenade Jumper" were recorded in another demo session. The additional other 7 songs were recorded in 9 days with producer Sean O'keefe.
In the Take This To Your Grave: Directors Cut DVD, Pete and Patrick discuss the partnership of the song writing for the album. Originally, Patrick Stump wrote the lyrics as well as the music-as witnessed in many places throughout the album. The songs "Dead On Arrival", "Saturday", "Grenade Jumper" and "Calm Before The Storm" were originally written by Patrick (However, Saturday was not written by Patrick; Pete realize the oddity of Patrick singing "Patrick and I" and change the lyrics accordingly). Pete later went back and added his own lyrics to certain parts (e.g. changing the second verse of "Calm Before the Storm"). In interviews, Pete and Patrick often discuss how "The Pros and Cons of Breathing" was the first song written in the structure of how they write songs currently-Patrick writing the music and Pete writing all the lyrics. "Tell That Mick" and "The Patron Saint" are other examples of this song writing partnership, however, Patrick Stump wrote the lyrics to the first verse and chorus of "The Patron Saint of Liars and Fakes", while Pete wrote lyrics to the second verse. More so, Patrick wrote the lyrics to the chorus of "Chicago is So Two Years Ago", while Pete wrote the verses.


Song notes

"Calm Before the Storm" was re-recorded for this album. An earlier version was featured on their first album, Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend.
The song "Reinventing the Wheel to Run Myself Over" was featured on Burnout 3: Takedown.
The title of the song "Tell That Mick He Just Made My List of Things to Do Today" is a reference to a quote in the film Rushmore.
A part of the song "Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy" was referenced in Fall Out Boy's later song, What a Catch, Donnie from their 2008 release Folie à Deux. This part was sung by Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship.
