Fall Out Boy…
Generally Fall Out Boy are seen as an
emo band. However, really only Pete
Wentz could be stereotyped as an
emo. But the song lyrics and their
style of album also suggests that they
should be placed in the genre of
emo. Each band member also has
their own sense of style.
Patrick Stump - When he was in Fall
Out boy he had a very unique look of
hats, side burns and shirts and ties.
Nothing that would be the usual
stereotype of an emo band.
Pete Wentz - He dresses in the typical
emo way of skinny jeans, hoodies,
guyliner and short black hair.
Joe Trohman - He doesn't follow the
stereotypical emo dress code but he
doesn't seem to follow anything else
either. However, he doesn't have
much of a unique style.
Andy Hurley - Once again he doesn't follow the stereotypical emo
dress code but his long hair and beard makes him seem slightly rocky.
The photograph above shows off their attitude and personalities. Two of them are rather quiet and
subdued which suggests that they would prefer to stay away from the lime light. Unlike the other two,
who happen to be the front man and drummer, who seem to show more of their personality through
on this photograph. The fact that Patrick (front man) and Pete are placed in the middle of the group
suggests that they are more liked and known by their audience.
In this photograph it is
made to look like Pete
is the front man and
not Patrick as Andy is
also watching Pete
which suggests that he
looks up to him for
leadership. Patrick and
Pete are always in the
middle and Joe and
Andy are always, what
seems like, sitting on
the sidelines. Also Pete
and Patrick always
pose more than the
other two like Pete is
looking away in one
direction which could
just to be with showing
his hair off and then
Patrick is looking in
another direction with
a stance. The background of this can relate back to the time when they were part of the underground
music circuit in Chicago before they became famous.
You Me At Six…
You Me At Six originally formed in 2004 but didn’t get the
big break until 2007. Eventually they got to support big
names such as Paramore and Fall Out Boy on some of their
Each band member seems to follow the same sense of style
but I wouldn’t place any of them in the stereotype of emo.
However, there style of music can be placed in the genre of
The way this photograph is set up makes
you want to place the band in the Indie
genre as Indie bands generally make
themselves seem intimidating however
they contradict themselves by pulling
faces. This photo represents there type of
music. Some of their lysics can be
depressing and placed in the category of
being emo but the way the play it in an
upbeat style makes it seem okay. This is
represented through there poses here. They
are intimidating you but making those faces to make you feel better.
Also the fact that only one of them is wearing grey and the rest are wearing white which shows
us clearly which one is the front man.
This photograph shows their playful side to life.
This also represents who is the leader of the
group as he has managed to tape the rest of
them all together. This highlights their personality
and the faces that they are pulling are comic
whish suggests that their band dynamic includes
having fun. Once again in this photo the front
man is the only one wearing white and the rest of
them are all wearing black or dark colours.
Paramore have been together
since 2004 and really made their
mark in 2005. Paramore are
really the only big female
fronted band in which the rest of
the band are all male. It is
original and quirky and
something that hasn’t really
been seen before. Hayley seems
to have a style of her own and
generally the loud one as her
hair colour might suggest. The
rest of the band tend to dress in
simple clothing and let Hayley
take the full on role of being
the leading woman.
This photograph pretty
much sums up
Paramore. Hayley is
showing off her crazy and quirky personality. The
guys on the other hand seem more subdued about it all but they do show their
personalities as well. The brightly coloured graffiti in the background seems more fun than just a plain
background which would probably look wrong with the poses that they are doing.
Here is another
image that shows
background is very
setting to the pose
that Hayley is
doing. Its as if she
is angry with
someone who us
running away and
is trying to shoot
them as the rest of
the band is actually
looking at the
doesn’t seem to
care about what
Hayley is doing.
However this time round the only thing that sets Hayley apart from the group is her hair colour.
Biffy Clyro have been formed since
1995 but haven't really made it into
the lime light until 2006, a hefty 11
years later. This Scottish band seem
to be in a league of their own with
the type of music that they create .
They are leaning more towards the
rock scene rather than the emo side
of things. Front man Simon Neil
doesn’t seem to carry off a
stereotyped look which runs threw
the rest of the band.
This photograph is rather
suggestive on which band
member is more significant
to the actual band. Simon is
stood right at the front and
is giving a direct mode of
address . His choice of
clothing reveals his tattoo
but we could start to
question on whether there is a meaning behind the necklace he is wearing. What seems like to be the next
important band member is stood directly behind Simon however he is slightly out of focus but is also
giving a direct mode of address. However, the final band member is stood further away and is completely
out of focus. This connotes that he isn't as important to the band and might even be on his way out of the
This photograph shows the guys having
some fun but they are all dressed
smartly. The way they are stood implies
a better group dynamic than the
previous photograph as they are all
stood together. But Simon is slightly
distance from the rest of the group but
still looks included and even looks like
he is being looked up to by the other
