Welcome to Radio Feedback, Radio.com’s weekly feature where we ask artists to wax nostalgic on the first time they heard themselves on the radio.

During a high-energy live performance in Los Angeles, the members of resurgent rockers Fall Out Boy recalled their memories of the first time they heard the band’s music played on the radio.

“I was in Chicago. I can’t remember what I was doing,” bassist Pete Wentz struggled to recall. “I was probably getting yelled at by my dad.”

In contrast, frontman Patrick Stump remembered the sensation of hearing the band’s current comeback hit single, “My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark (Light ‘Em Up)” spun for the very first time.

“Oddly enough, we were in Chicago. The four of us were all sitting around in a hotel room,” Stump explained. “It was a totally different feeling because after coming back from such a long break it was like this new, exciting thing. I think when you’re first starting out, you’re either oblivious or insane, and you take stuff for granted. But this was like, ‘Whoa, we’re on the radio!’”

“My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark (Light ‘Em Up)” is the first single from Save Rock and Roll, the band’s first studio full-length since 2008’s Folie à Deux.

Fall Out Boy is currently finishing up a theater tour of America that wraps up on June 30 in Nashville, Tennessee. After spending the summer playing overseas, the band returns to the States for a headlining arena run, which kicks off September 5 in Uncasville, Connecticut.
