My Chemical Romance - Black Parade
Associated with mallgoths and their contemporaries were awful, I dismissed them and put them in a pile labeled ‘shitty emo music for people who get all their skinny jeans from Topman’ is actually an amazing Rock Opera record full of fun, atmosphere, energy and passion. IN MY DEFENCE their contemporaries were largely awful, but fuck me did this band not deserve the hate I gave them in 2006. To think I ignored their set at the Muse Wembley gig because they were ‘lame and not PROPER music’… the irony now being I’d sooner listen to this record over anything Muse put out. 2006/07 me was an idiot.
