    Fueled By Ramen was founded in April of 1996 by Less Than Jake drummer/lyricist (not a job title you see often) Vinnie Fiorello and his friend John Janick. Named for a cheap food staple in most punk revivalist's diets, Vinnie used the label as an opportunity to put out records by all the great bands he encountered while on tour. However, as the label has become more and more synonymous with a man who once "leaked" pictures of his penis on the internet and his contribution to the label, a perianal abscess called Decaydance Records, its credibility has fallen in the eyes of many (or at least me and some people I know and a bunch of people on punknews.org). Vinnie, apparently disillusioned with the label and growing bored of receiving checks from major record companies for helping to "develop" bands like Yellowcard, Fall Out Boy, and The Academy Is, backed out on December 22, 2006.

    What I intend to do is write a completely biased overview of every band that has ever been on Fueled By Ramen's roster…

    Go through your top 10 artists and add up the total number of listeners. Divide the average by the number of Radiohead fans (Radiohead is the artist with the most listeners). That is your "mainstream percentage".
