    You've probably heard of Elf on the Shelf. You know that "sweet" and "adorable" toy that is always ~watching~ you.

    Backstage at KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas in Los Angeles, we had musicians name everyone's favorite creepy AF elf.

    Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy named him after one of the greats.
