The 2020 US Presidential election is in just a few months, and we've found out a crazy fact about Presidential candidate Joe Biden.
A recent viral tweet has revealed the connection that Fall Out Boy has with Joe. In fact, if it wasn't for Joe, Fall Out Boy wouldn't exist.

Back in 2008, Barack Obama and Joe were running for their first presidential term. During this time, band member Pete Wentz revealed FOB's connection to Biden.
Speaking to the Associated Press, Pete said his parents met while working for Biden. “I would not be standing here actually in reality at all because my parents met working for Biden.
"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 you'd expect, it shocked fans to find out that a future US president could be responsible for one of the world's biggest pop-punk bands.
I just learned Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy's parents met working for Joe Biden and for some reason I am losing my mind
