Chart performance

"Sugar, We're Goin Down" would rise and fall in inconsistent patterns. The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 on July 2, 2005, at #93. Ten weeks later, on September 17, 2005, the song entered the top 10 at #8, giving Fall Out Boy their first top 10 single. At this point, the song did not have much airplay but had relied on the strength of downloads alone, and they experienced a sales surge following their performance at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards.[citation needed]
Following this download surge, however, downloads fell, and the song dropped to #15 the following week. During this time, though, mainstream radio support kicked in, and while downloads were falling, airplay was able to help stabilize the song. As a result, the song rose in the following weeks to be at either position #10 or #11. The single peaked at #2 on Hot Digital Songs and its airplay peak was #19 on the Hot 100 Airplay; it also peaked at #1 on Hot Digital Tracks.
On the Pop charts, "Sugar, We're Goin Down" displayed a slightly better performance. With the same digital download stats, but with an airplay panel to their advantage, the song reached a peak position of #6 on the Pop 100 with its component airplay, Pop 100 Airplay, being #6. In terms of total spins versus total impressions, the single also peaked at #6 on the Top 40 Mainstream chart.
In the UK, the song first charted on January 21, 2006, hitting outside of the Top 20 at #24. However, it appeared again on the charts in February, and entered the chart in the Top 10, at its peak position, #8. It remained in the top 75 of the UK Singles Chart for seventeen weeks.


Music video

The music video for "Sugar, We're Goin' Down", directed by Matt Lenski follows the persecution and subsequent redemption of a boy with antlers. The video establishes the life of a socially outcast boy with antlers (played by Donald Cumming of the Virgins), and his feelings for a neighborhood girl. It is made clear that the girl's father disapproves. Distraught, the boy tries to cut his antlers off, but is stopped by the girl. Later on, the father attempts to shoot the boy with an arrow, but is hit by a car. When he rushes to the man's aid, the boy finds that the father has hooves. They connect, and the father accepts him, allowing him to date his daughter.
Another version of the video exists, and has been played on some UK and Australian music channels. The video simply features the footage of the band playing from the main video, added to footage of the band's live performances and tour movies. This version won the "MTV2 Award" at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards.
The antlers in the video can be seen in Fall Out Boy's music video for What a Catch, Donnie.



In 2009, a cover version of the song was released by British punk band You Me At Six. It will be available on their upcoming album Finders Keepers.

The song was the first by Fall Out Boy and the first by an artist on the Fueled by Ramen label to reach the top ten in the Billboard Hot 100. This success would lead to future Fueled by Ramen artists breaking into the mainstream, and helped pave the way for the group's next single, "Dance, Dance", to also crack the top ten on the chart.
