My Chemical Romance

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

I like My Chemical Romance, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. They have pretty intense music and some pretty good theatrics and concepts about the band. I can see why they are appealing to the pre-teen emo set. But I think their latest album actually borrows from 1970s glam rock, and I can appreciate that. The Black Parade plays like an over-the-top emo rock opera. The matching outfits are a bit awkward though. It’s like Gerard Way decided they would all do it, and some of them are a little less comfortable with their bodies than he is in the form-fitting pants, and that totally shows in the awkwardness in all the photo shoots. The cool thing is that Gerard Way is now a god among his fans, and in high school he was a chubby awkward kid. I’m trying to find his yearbook photo. It’s pretty hilarious.
I wonder who is excited to go to a high school reunion!

Anyway, the album is worth a listen. You don’t have to tell anyone that you listen to “Welcome to the Black Parade” on repeat and sing along quite loudly, as I do at work sometimes.
