    How you figger?
    When did emasculated males become 'good looking'?
    When did hairless, feminine males become 'hot'?

    Oh god, that's who he is?!? I've seen his name mentioned a couple of times as the benchmark of fail but I had no idea he participated in the performance of that godawful song that my wife and nine year old daughter likes to punish me with when they're feeling froggy. Give me a negative number, I'm gettin' aboard the hate train. :scowl:

    Pete Wentz is my hero when I get out my razor blade.

    And that one song, with the monkeys, Thinks for the Murmers, or something of that nature, is a fine show of bass skills. I wont lie.

    Lol, I love this thread, so funny. But seriously. He doesn't look too bad, he's a crappy bassist, but a talented songwriter, great lyrics, and I don't mind Fall Out Boy.

    You guys should stop ripping on Pete Wentz so much.
    One day he'll show up on your doorstep with his squier bass and hit you over the head.

    But seriously, I have seen much worse bass players than him, give him a little slack.

    What exactly don't you like about him/His playing

    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    Pete Wentz...Lets see,
    young & good looking (according to most of the girls I've asked at my college)
    gets to earn a living playing bass in a successful pop rock band
    band has a pretty large fan base
    endorsement deal with Fender
    treats his fans pretty good
    Actually a decent guy and family man
    gets to live the dream

    oh ya, his bass lines are simple and strait forward and fit the bands music, so I guess I should trash him for not being a VW or a Geddy?

    Heaven forbid somebody make it who's talent and skills don't measure up to you as you sit wanking in your bedroom :crying:

    Really what doomed Pee Wentz here on the great Halls of TB is just the Fact that he has his own signature bass from Squier by Fender. If it wasn't for this fact I doubt he would have 100th the amount of infamy that he has here.

    I really dont care to listen to FOB to make precise comments about his lines, its tween pop so I always pass.
    Well maybe thanks to his Signature P-bass there are some tweens picking up the bass to later get enlightened by revered low end brethren.
  18. The man is a pioneer. A visionary.
    They never gave Van Gogh praise when he was alive.
    Mark my words, when he passes on to the next life his music will be priceless. PRICELESS. I for one am hording FOB albums and own no fewer than 167 of his signature basses for when the time comes. Be prepared!

    Wentz = Love

    What's wrong with being a young good looking bass player with all the money and fame in the world? Do I detect a hint of jealousy, TB?

    It can't be his playing, because Cliff Williams is almost universally praised, and he's the KING of boring bass lines.

    Pete's band has sold more albums than most of the other guys on Fender's Signature bass lineup. And dare I say it, without the lame heart/bat sticker, that bass is actually pretty damn hot.
