Turns Out We Owe Fall Out Boy’s Existence Exclusively To Joe Biden

The pop-punk world has had its mind collectively blown by the bombshell revelation that we owe the existence of Fall Out Boy exclusively to US Democratic Presidential candidate, Joe Biden.

FOB figurehead Pete Wentz actually revealed the band’s connection to Trump’s arch nemesis back in 2008, but the crazy factoid has resurfaced again in a viral tweet to slap us in the brain, in the wake of the upcoming election:

So what is the causal relationship between Obama’s VP and one of the most influential pop-punk bands of all time? Well, Wentz’s parents actually met while they were both working for Biden. Meaning if it weren’t for the politician, there’d be no Pete, and therefore no Fall Out Boy.

“I would not be standing here actually in reality at all because my parents met working for Biden,” the bassist told the Associated Press.

“They met on the campaign, so they have this particular affection for Joe. He came to their wedding. If it weren’t for Joe Biden, I would not exist as a human being.”

Soz, Trump. Guess you just lost the emo vote.
