The cops had to come because he was breaking the windows of her car.

These are all things we were familiar with back then. Here’s the thing, though: it wasn’t our responsibility to disown Pete Wentz.

It began in 2013, over six years after I first began listening to the band in earnest.

I was twenty years old and though I’d long since stopped subscribing to Alternative Press, I bought the September issue because the cover story was a piece commemorating the tenth anniversary of Take This to Your Grave, FOB’s first official album.

The whole “Band as Self” thing was a huge part of who i was, and it’s impossible to separate that from who I am today.

As stated, he dated a fifteen-year-old when he was twenty-three.

I’m ashamed to admit it, but I knew the facts, and so did most of my friends. It was someone’s responsibility to protect us from him, and whoever was supposed to do that job failed, simply and utterly. Here’s the answer: his bandmates, who have yet to denounce or even mention his behavior; his friends and managers and publicists, who should have known better; and the music community at large, a community which (like most other business endeavors) profits off of the exploitation of teenage girls.

Fall Out Boy made millions and millions of dollars off of Pete Wentz’s marketability to teenage girls. At the Disco, Paramore, and tons of other bands made millions and millions of dollars off of Pete Wentz’s marketability to teenage girls.

I’m not going to include too many links in this post because the facts are easy enough to find thanks to Google, and I don’t particularly want to contribute to the constant name-dropping this woman has been subjected to for the last eleven or twelve years. Even as a kid, I knew the story of the woman who had inspired such poetic lyrics as Let’s play this game/called when you catch fire/I wouldn’t piss to put you out and With every breath I wish your body would be broken again, among many others.

Pretty much every song on the album, and many songs on future albums as well, are about killing her or at very least wishing that she’d crash her car and die.

This ridiculous fucking review, in true Alternative Press fashion, attempts to defend Klein by accusing NFG of “kicking someone when he’s down,” otherwise known as “speaking publicly against pedophilia, which is a good thing to do unless the pedophile is in your band, in which case you should shut the fuck up.” This isn’t a perfect solution or even a solution at all, really, but it is a movement toward public, unapologetic accountability among some of the most iconic pop punk bros. I don’t have any answers, just a whole lot of sadness and a mountain of guilt about the way I was taught to vilify other girls for the benefit of older men thanks to the culture of pop punk.
