Watch Fall Out Boy Perform At A Pit Bull Rescue Benefit In 2002

Throwback Thursday to this moment of Fall Out Boy history 16 years ago.

Before they were one of the biggest bands in the world and before they were selling out arenas, Fall Out Boy were a scrappy pop-punk band from Chicago. 

A video of one of the earliest recorded performances from Fall Out Boy has appeared online, with the lads on the line-up for a benefit gig raising funds for the Chicago Bully Breed Rescue back in 2002.

Also on the benefit lineup was the likes of Rise Against and Every Time I Die. We'd say 'petition for this line-up to get back together for a tour' but there's absolutely no need because both Rise Against and Every Time I Die are supporting Fall Out Boy on their upcoming Fall tour at various dates.

This performance pre-dates the release of 'Fall Out Boy's Evening Out With Your Girlfriend' by four months, and 'Take This To Your Grave' by six months. So this is truly an important moment in the history of Fall Out Boy.

While not the highest quality video, it's a pretty damn charming look at Fall Out Boy from 16 years ago. 

Watch Fall Out Boy perform 'Dead On Arrival' and 'Reinventing The Wheel To Run Myself Over' live in 2002 below:

Anyone else just a little emotional about the fact that Fall Out Boy have gone from playing a half-pipe in a skate park, to playing Wrigley Field? 

Fall Out Boy are back in the UK next month to headline Reading & Leeds.
