Guilty Pleasures: My Chemical Romance

My friend recently showed me a video where the guitarists of My Chemical Romance spent around 10 minutes attempting to explain what a power chord is. They were unsuccessful. That painfully awkward interview showcased everything that’s wrong with My Chemical Romance, yet every time I hear “Welcome to the Black Parade,” I find myself singing along.  Their songwriting is just a bit more emo than Queen, but maybe that’s what makes the song so irresistible. The whole shtick of the Black Parade turns me off, but I’ll probably still be shouting, “when I was…a young boy,” just like we all did back in 7th grade.
