This is why fans say Joe Biden is the reason Fall Out Boy even exists
A viral tweet about Biden and Fall Out Boy's connection has caused a previous Pete Wentz interview to resurface which discusses Wentz's direct connection to Biden.
In November 2008, Barack Obama and Biden were running for their first presidential term. During this time, Wentz revealed the unexpected connection he has to Biden.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Wentz shared that his parents met while working for Biden. If neither of them worked on the campaign, Wentz surely wouldn't exist.
“I would not be standing here actually in reality at all because my parents met working for Biden,” Wentz said. “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.”
As the general elections near, Biden and Kamala Harris are continuing their campaign to take over the presidency from Donald Trump and Mike Pence. To better help their efforts, Fall Out Boy fans are reminding the internet that one of their favorite emo bands wouldn't exist without the help of Biden.
Along with the Fall Out Boy connection, Biden and Harris are taking their campaign to Animal Crossing. The campaign has launched various merch that players can rep in the Nintendo game and show their support.
