Reminder That It's Been 11 Years Since The Black Parade Album

We've all gotten older, haven't we?


October 24, 2006 was the Black Parade's birthday. I've been a fan of MCR since I'm Not Okay came out, but TBP will always have such a huge part of my heart because that is when I saw them perform live for the first time. Joke all you want about MCR, but they changed the face of pop culture for better or for worse.

I feel so cheesy saying this, but they will always be my favorite band. No other music has changed my life as drastically as they did.
Here's to the Black Parade!

What was your favorite track off the album?

But man I feel like it was yesterday!
I really like Cancer and famous last words
Teenagers and Famous last words were my favorite off of that album. They were one of the few rock band I actually started to listen to in 6th grade as well as black veil brides, sleeping with sirens, pierce the veil, and falling in reverse
Mcrmy forever! I remember when it first came out. I was so excited.
famous last words
i feel so old now ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10 Rock and Roll Jams To Replace Your Boring Christmas Playlist
Are you sick of the ho-hum standards usually played during the Holiday season? Have no fear! Your amazing new Christmas playlist is here! Tune in rock out and get rid of those winter blues, because these highly original christmas songs are going to knock your socks off. Get modern, get cool, and get all ready for Christmas! 1. Yule Shoot Your Eye Out / Fall Out Boy This song is everything. And if you've never heard it before, you're in for a treat. Vengeful, cutting and completely clever it's the kind of Christmas song you can stomach over and over without throwing up. Get your Santa hats out, because you've got a new Christmas jam. 2. Merry Christmas (I Don't Want To Fight Tonight) / The Ramones This punk rock classic is perfect for that moment when you're forced to decorate the tree with family members that don't necessarily get along. You know...all of them. So for your next Christmas gathering...just play them this, "Come on guys. It's Christmas time, don't fight. The Ramones said so!" Right? That's all it'll take. 3. Don't Shoot Me Santa / The Killers I wrote an entire list of all the great Killers Christmas songs. They're seriously all remarkable. I had to include my personal favorite, "Don't Shoot Me Santa" the catchiest, funniest most edgy Christmas song around. Play this video for your friends and watch them fall in love. Seriously. 4. I Wish It Was Christmas Today / Julian Casablancas The lead singer of The Strokes gives you this Dean-Martin-esque Christmas neo-classic. It's smooth and classic, but still has that classic Casablancas sneer. It's magic. So play this for your parents at their boring Christmas party, and just bop along. Because it's kind of like you're listening to The Strokes without offending old people right? 5. All I Want For Christmas Is You / My Chemical Romance This is my favorite version of this song. Your friends are probably all like..."What about Mariah Carey! She's the Christmas queen!" No. Gerard Way is the Christmas queen damn it. Trust me. This is the best version of this song you will hear. 6. All I Want For Christmas / The Yeah Yeah Yeahs Karen O's distinct vocals coupled with this rockabilly vibe make "All I Want For Christmas" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is the perfect song to listen to while you're contemplating your existence during the holidays. Rock music just does that. 7. Merry Christmas, Kiss My Ass / All Time Low Much like Fall Out Boy's Christmas tune, All Time Low bring the spiteful part of the season to light. For some, the Holidays aren't a beautiful, golden time filled with presents and chestnuts and all that. For some, they're cold, lonely and a reminder of all the things you continuously screw up. This one's for you. Play it loud, even if you're a Grinch. 8. White Christmas / Panic! At The Disco Let Brendon Urie's velvety smooth vocals lull you into Christmas bliss with this lovely cover of a classic. Probably the most traditional on the list, its something you can jam with your grandma to, and have a little laugh to yourself because it's Brendon Urie not Bing Crosby. 9. The Flaming Lips / Christmas at the Zoo I had the distinct pleasure of seeing The Flaming Lips this summer at the Nelsonville Music Festival in Ohio. It was one of the strangest experiences of my life. The scene was madness: big rock hooks with neon lights, swinging strings of lights, giant balloons, various strains of marijuana smoke flying through the air and the crazy presence of lead singer Wayne Coyne. This Christmas song is nutty, just like the band. It's also the perfect thing to play during one of your young, hip Christmas gatherings...if you have one. 10. Won't Be Home For Christmas / Blink 182 Rock and roll can be bitter business, but the truth is, that some people just can't get home for Christmas and others just don't want to. Whatever your reason for being away from home, you're not alone. You've got Blink 182 to lull you into holiday submission. Which Christmas song was your favorite!? If you like this playlist, or want to make one of your own, be sure to hang around the Alternative Rock community here on Vingle! And Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
MCR Broke Up 3 Years Ago Today, And I'm Still Not Over It
"The Kids From Yesterday" describes a generation of MCR fans who went through the break up of the century. Yes, we got solo albums from Frank Iero and Gerard Way. Music from Ray Toro and Mikey Way is on the horizon, but what lacks is not the presence of the members, but the presence of the band. When My Chemical Romance called it quits I was a sophomore in college. Long gone were the days of Warped tour and late night listening sessions and here to stay was work, worrying about money and the idea that the future was coming too quick enough for me to catch. Transitional periods are always difficult, no matter where you are or what you're doing. It just so happened that while most of the hardcore fans were just entering college or leaving it. My best friend from high school was visiting for the weekend and when the message went out on MCR's website, a carefully penned letter from lead singer Gerard Way, I broke down into tears. It hadn't been an easy year for me. Lots of new "adult" problems had arisen for me, just like every college kid, and I had been feeling that illusive notion that my childhood was officially over. I remember hugging my MCR poster on the wall, which I had cherished for years before. Nothing could console me. It was like I was mourning the death of everything I had known. Music has that effect on people. When the chips are down, we can always count on our favorite bands to see us through. And though most of us masked our pain in various ways: by drinking a bit too much or partying too long with our friends, it was still there. Visible in many ways. When the shuffle of an iPhone caught the first notes of The Black Parade I had to skip it, because I knew that in the middle of College green, I would be destroyed. Yes, they were a band, and now they are an idea, but they still live on in the times we hear their songs in the car and in the voices of our friends. Don't act like you weren't there too, because MCR fans are a unit, and we still feel each other's pain. Call me emo, call me a baby, but that band had a magnificent impact on my life, and despite what all the people say about growing up and getting over things...I will never get over My Chemical Romance.
How Did K-Pop Change You?
Shout Out to @KpopandKimchi for this great oppurtinity to share the most important thing in my life so far here's her card So 가자! Let's get started! . I never grow old of telling the story of how I first got into Kpop and how it saved me. Before kpop I had gotten out of a long relationship to discover why he loved me so much, what made me worth it, I also was at a lost at what to do with myself I was struggling to find a major in college because I had lost my passion for everything. I was at a job I didn't see a future in and had no hobbies. I was dull and had no direction in life. Then 내 안니, aka my big cousin introduced to 2 year hidden obsession. She had me, attractive guys, synchronized dancing, and bumping music(even through the language barrier, I liked anime so that wasn't much of a stretch, subtitles were made for a reason) 1. Gave Me a Goal (Short Term) So 언니 was planning for a concert a little after introducing me to this whole new world. Goals were made: -Save money and go with her. -Search for Music and learn more about the artist. -Listen to more of the music so I won't feel like an outsider at the concert. -Go To Concert. 2. Made Me Passionate (again) It rekindled a fire I thought dead. I was excited to go to a concert, excited to hang out with friends, excited to talk about something I liked again. 3. Made Me Social (again) Back in high school I had loads of associates that I could keep up conversation with. Talk about loads of different topics; School, classes, upcoming events, Harry Potter, Yu-gi-oh! and loads of just random stuff just to be random (gosh I miss my youth, the whole mess of it all). After I graduated I didn't immediately go to college so my only friends became my Boyfriend and little sister (not a way to live soon conversations are dull and agitation becomes easier). Now I'm apart of fandoms and actually talk to people on the streets that notice my kpop merch. 4. Made Me Smile (again) Music I was listening to prior to kpop wasn't really allowing me to emot, unless it was old quality gold. Western music at the time seemed so commercial and stupid, so inappropriate and mean. GOT7 my Ultimate Bias Group had come out with 딱좋아 aka Just Right around then and I was in love. 2016 was hard but music kept coming, I had plenty of ups and down including my dad passing and the loads of hospital visits that came along with it. Music kept me going. 5. Gave Me Goals (Long Term) So Kpop and Korean culture are my passion now. Almost everything I do now surrounds one or the other. -I'm learning Korean -Planning a trip to Korean -Planning More K-Concert trips -Creating content on my YouTube channel that revolves around Korean culture. Summary K-Pop didn't just change me, it gave me a whole new life and way of thinking. Without K-Pop I'd most likely still be dull and boring and not knowing what to do with my life. This has been your favorite Kpop, Kworld fandom trainee, just a trainee. Elisha 입나다 aka ENF2. Today is another day to do better. I'll do better, you do better. 사랑해 <3

Funko Pop To Release My Chemical Romance Figures!
The MCRmy loves to consume everything and anything related to our heroes My Chemical Romance. This year, just in time for the Holidays Funko Pop, a brand famously known for creating vinyl toys are releasing adorable My Chemical Romance figures. Pictured above, the "Revenge Gerard Way" figure, which recreates a classic look from the "Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge" era, has already sold out of pre-orders on Hot Topic.com. Obviously, because it's sporting the trademark mask that Gerard famously drew on for the Taste of Chaos Tour in '07. Yeah, we know our MCR history. Anyway, The only designs that have been released are of lead singer Gerard Way, and boy are they adorable and collectible. I kind of want all three. Take a look! There are several designs of Gerard from "The Black Parade" as well. Here is the skeleton make-up he wore for a lot of the TV appearances surrounding the release of the record. Look at its cute little Black Parade jacket. I bet we all wish we had one! The next design is a clean faced figure, with the soulless eyes of "The Patient" (the main character from the band's Black Parade, a concept record released in 2006). Whatever your favorite era of Gerard is (Danger Days doesn't make an appearance, although we'd love to see the red-haired Party Poison figure, complete with lazer gun!), there will be something for you. Hopefully you can snatch up one of these figures before they sell out completely. Which design is your favorite? Shout out to all my MCRmy on Vingle: @heyrenee22 @dunckleemichael @JeaniLuvsFoxes @Tamsinsky @YugyeomBjArmyIC @ALEXCAMACHO @alexismchange @caricakes @NekioOken @SarahRoot @basquiatorsamo @amerie3991 @JosephAcostaIII @PurpleChick @MCR14 And if you want more be sure to hang out in the Alternative Rock community for more news, rankings, lists and more surrounding your favorite bands.
