Fall Out Boy have always loved a b-side. Be it that little bit extra on the end of a brilliant album or a stand alone forgotten banger, the band have a bucketload of songs that you may not even have known existed. Here's your comprehensive list of them so you can't miss out anymore!

IT'S NOT A SIDE EFFECT OF THE COCAINE, I AM THINKING IT MUST BE LOVE
A glorious love-song from the early days of the band that demonstrated how all it took to write a brilliant song was a guitar and Patrick Stump's voice. 


MY HEART IS THE WORST KIND OF WEAPON
Though this track later appeared in full band form on the deluxe edition of 'From Under The Cork Tree', this acoustic take is as heartfelt and cutesy as it gets. 


LOVE WILL TEAR US APART
Pop-punk and misery have always gone hand in hand. Just take this cover of Joy Division's melancholic classic and tell us we are wrong. 


SNITCHES AND TALKERS GET STITCHES AND WALKERS
High octane, sassy and utterly irresistible, this was FOB at their ferocious best. How it didn't make the first cut of 'From Under The Cork Tree' we will never know. 


THE MUSIC OR THE MISERY
This is the best song Fall Out Boy have ever written. No question. We will fight you. 


ALPHA DOG
A parting gift on the band's greatest hits 'Believer's Never Die', this was one of the last songs we heard from the band before they broke up. Remember what happened next?


FROM NOW ON WE ARE ENEMIES
Another farewell gift from 'Believer's Never Die. It's pretty mad thinking how we all made it through the hiatus relatively unharmed. Never again. 


IT'S HARD TO SAY "I DO" WHEN I DON'T
Fitting in perfectly with the heavier style found on 'Infinity On High', this proves to be a refreshing extra to one of the best albums ever made. 


LULLABYE
If we had been sung this when we were kids, we would have slept for absolutely days. 


PAVLOVE
Pretty wild that this slice of sun soaked goodness was a bonus track on 'Folie a Deux'. We reckon it wouldn't sound out of place on one of the new era albums. You agree? Good. 


AUSTIN, WE HAVE A PROBLEM
Be warned, this is probably the sexiest Fall Out Boy song ever. Patrick Sasstump, right?


LEGENDARY (BLINK AND YOU'LL MISS IT)
This here is a demo that the band offered for free download for just a few minutes almost 10 years ago. What a lovely band and what a lovely song. 


GUILTY AS CHARGED (TELL HIP HOP I'M LITERATE)
Anything Gym Class Heroes can do, Fall Out Boy can do better. Funk and soul for days. 


HAND OF GOD
Taken from the demo sessions of 'From Under The Cork Tree', we prefer this Hand Of God to the Diego Maradona one. No, we're not still bitter. 


LAKE EFFECT KID
Soulful. Infectious. Emotional. Sentimental. Everything that makes a perfect FOB song. The true definition of hidden gem. 


YULE SHOOT YOUR EYE OUT
The single best thing about Christmas is this song. Dinner is ok. Presents are ok. 'Yule Shoot Your Eye Out' on repeat is everything.
