Wendy’s is once again proving they secretly have a (former?) scene kid running their Twitter account. While the fast-food favorite typically roasts those they interact with (as well as unsuspecting competitors), Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden seems to be an exception with a wholesome throwback exchange.

While hosting their own Baconfest concert and signing off on two bands playing a pop-up gig in a Knoxville location’s dining room prove they’re clearly music fans, Wendy’s snark-filled love runs much deeper.

On National Roast Day 2019, the fast-food chain went all-in on Hawthorne Heights, Atilla’s Fronz, Hopeless Records, State Champs, Beartooth, Miss May I, Atreyu, Knocked Loose, Memphis May Fire and many, many more. Now, it looks like Wendy’s has a soft spot for Good Charlotte as well.

The fast-food joint has been busy preparing for their breakfast menu launch, which they first announced in September. The new array of items will feature three croissant sandwiches: Maple Bacon Chicken; Sausage, Egg & Swiss and Bacon Egg & Swiss. There will also be biscuit options including Honey Butter Chicken; Sausage, Egg & Cheese and Bacon Egg & Cheese; Sausage; and Sausage Gravy & Biscuit.

The restaurant will also have two classic sandwiches: Sausage Egg & Cheese and Bacon Egg & Cheese. And that’s not all as they’ve revamped their own classics as the Breakfast Baconator and a Frostyccino in vanilla and chocolate.

In true Wendy’s fashion, they’ve been promoting the new menu by trolling their competitors, targeting Burger King for today’s post.

“Oof. We’ve got 6 days till March 2nd,” they tweeted with an image of the BK mascot. “Seems excessive but hey, you’re the King.”

Clearly just as stoked as the rest of us for the upcoming breakfast menu, Madden chimed in to share, “This account has become my only reliable source of information.”

Wendy’s came back with the perfect response, quoting Madden himself with “The Anthem” lyrics: “You know, it’s a new day, but it all feels old.”
