Well, it's time to bring back that black eyeliner and dust off that old iPod, because My Chemical Romance just announced that they're getting back together and playing a show in Los Angeles.
You can view more details here.
If you're anything like me, your teenage years were spent screaming along to the angsty lyrics and damn-near worshipping the ground that Gerard Way walked on, (because let's face it, he was the poster-boy for teenage angst and rebellion, all while looking absolutely drop dead gorgeous in that "Welcome to the Black Parade" attire.)
If anyone needs a reminder, the band broke up back in March of 2013, and Gerard Way left fans with quite a long statement that ended with the now infamous lines, "My Chemical Romance is done. But it can never die.
It is alive in me, in the guys, and it is alive inside of all of you. I always knew that, and I think you did too. Because it is not a band-it is an idea."
Band or idea, MCR will forever hold a place in my stick-it-to-the-man, rebellious heart, and I can't wait to see what these guys have in store or die-hard fans like me.
And, even if you're not a die-hard fan, maybe their comeback will persuade you to listen to their music and expand your music taste.
They had quite a few bangers that will definitely make you want to break out those old emo clothes of yours shoved in your attic somewhere. Which is not a bad thing, I promise.
Pull out your OG Apple headphones, yes, the ones with the cord, and throw on some black eyeliner because My Chemical Romance is back, and HOPEFULLY, they are here to stay.
