Pete Wentz            

Member of Fall Out Boy; Owner of Decaydance Records

Pete Wentz is the bassist and primary lyricist for the Chicago-based band Fall Out Boy. Pete grew up in the Chicago hardcore punk scene, and was in several bands before Fall Out Boy, including Firstborn, Arma Angelus, 7 Angels of the Apocalypse, Culture of Violence, Extinction, Forever Ended Today and Yellow Road Priest. He grew up with band member Joseph Trohman. Fall Out Boy is the fourth band that Pete Wentz and Andrew Hurley have done together.

Wentz has written a book entitled "The Boy With the Thorn In His Side," which is a story based on nightmares he had as a child. It is named after a song by The Smiths.

Wentz has a company called Clandestine Industries, which distributes books and, more notably, clothing, among other things. Additionally, he owns his own imprint of Fueled By Ramen, Decaydance Records, which has signed on several bands, including: Panic! At The Disco, October Fall, Gym Class Heroes and The Hush Sound and Lifetime. He also has a film production company called Bartskull Films, which has released the DVD "Release the Bats," a film about Peter, his friends both in and outside of Fall Out Boy, and many Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen bands.

Since the announcement of Fall Out Boy's temporary hiatus in 2009, Wentz has formed the experimental electropop/dubstep group Black Cards.

Wentz has bipolar disorder and has taken medication for it since he was 18. In 2005, Wentz survived a suicide attempt.
