"Dead on Arrival" is a song by the American rock band Fall Out Boy and the first single from their debut full-length album Take This to Your Grave (2003). It was released on blue 7" vinyl by Fueled by Ramen. The song is among the band's earliest compositions, dating to before drummer Andy Hurley joined the band. It was regularly played in concert up until 2013. It was also the first single Fall Out Boy has ever released.
"Dead on Arrival" was also included on a Kerrang! compilation CD. It is the first track on Fall Out Boy's first greatest hits album, Believers Never Die – Greatest Hits (2009). The song is playable in the game Rock Band.
Music Video Edit
The music video was made up from various clips of the band performing live and travelling around the U.S. to small venue shows. The band said that the video was supposed to show that they were homesick. The police in the video were The Arlington Heights Police Department and had the show shut down, but Fall Out Boy apologized to them, and thanked them for being in their video. One of the venues in the video is the Knights of Columbus Hall in Arlington Heights, Illinois, where the band regularly played to a small local audience in their early days.
