Project Rocket/Fall Out Boy is a split EP by American rock bands Project Rocket and Fall Out Boy, released by Uprising Records in 2002. It was the first official release for both bands. The split EP has sold over 25,000 copies in the United States as of August 2008, according to Billboard.[2][3]

Background[edit]

This would be the first album for members of Fall Out Boy and Project Rocket to be done away from the hardcore style as opposed to their previous bands, though it still contains certain hardcore influences. Jared Logan played the drums for Fall Out Boy in the recording.[4] Andy Hurley, the drummer for Project Rocket at the time, later agreed to drum part-time for Fall Out Boy before eventually joining full-time, after some lineup changes were made.

Re-releases[edit]

The tracks were reversed in the 2005 re-release of the album.[5] Fall Out Boy's tracks came first, followed by those of Project Rocket. There is also an extremely rare reprint which features the front cover of the re-release, although without the "split ep" title;[6] the track numbering on the case and CD are the same as the re-release but the tracks on the CD play in the order of the original pressing. Also, the track "Growing Up" is listed as "Growing" on top of the disc.[4]

Fall Out Boy would later re-record their three songs from the EP for their following mini-LP Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend. Project Rocket also re-recorded "You Charlatan" for their album New Year's Revolution.
