"The Black Parade"

I'd never heard the band My Chemical Romance until today, but this video makes me think I need to hear more of them. I love this clip- kind of funny and kind of creepy at the same time.

I might have to turn in my Music Snob card, but I actually kinda dig MCR too, to be honest. I think with "Welcome To THe Black Parade" though, I'd trim out the intro segment, at least for the radio edit.

I also actually like "Panic! At The Disco" too. I am SO gonna be busted at the next Meeting.

(Also: Interstella 5555 was really awesome -- is the DVD out of print? I've got one, but it seemed like from some of the comments that it fell off the back of the truck somewhere...)

Hmmmm... you obviously haven't perused my best of '06 list, or you'd have been clued-in :-)
The album is well worth picking up.

rev: I didn't even know enough about MCR to know if they're cool or not. Not that I'm much for cool... I still like the Residents, after all. :)

I haven't heard of Panic! At The Disco, though.

As for Interstella- I wasn't sure it ever WAS on DVD! I literally only knew about it from a couple of stray articles after Discovery came out. It sounded like one of those ill-begotten art projects that might have never seen public release, and it kind of skipped my mind right there.

J.P.: D'oh! You are right, I'd missed your best-of list! I actually did think of you when I heard this, because it reminded me of Green Day in parts of it... turns out it's produced by the same guy who did "American Idiot."

I promise to peruse the rest of your best-of list ASAP. :)

Hehe, yeah -- I don't know; they're one of the bands that Emo Teens like, but that doesn't necessarily make them bad. Same with P!ATD, though they seem to get more rage directed at them. They're not bad, though. I don't know if I'd buy either's record, but hey. (With P!ATD, recommended cuts are "The only difference between suicide and martyrdom is press coverage" and, um... shit, I don't remember the better one. "I write apologies, not something" or something like that. That's a good one. But they have a knack for unweildy songtitles that have, at best, a tangental relationship to the song only.

I _have_ a copy of Interstella, actually! I'm just surprised it's out of print. It's pretty awesome.
