and may we have a moment of silence for my- done.
actually they're a guilty pleasure but I'm kinda glad they broke up at the same time
Digging: Bear vs. Shark - Terrorhawk
oh man. mcr yearbook video.
RIP hard gonna jam them for all my days
My life is complete
I was a little gutted - alright, Danger Days was awful, but I retain that The Black Parade is a near-perfect example of how to do pop rock, or whatever you want to call it.
The Black Parade was awesome, but yeah, they had to break up.
Digging: Alex G - Beach Music
Danger Days was their best album. They ended on a high note.
^^ lol no
At least is better than most of the material of the shitty mid 00's pop punk wave which was worse than
every trend in the history of rock, that's the only credit I can give to gerard way and company. MCR
wass average as hell and this song is nothing special, gladly they have disbanded
This band meant a lot to my childhood and I can still listen to the first two albums and give them a 4. Black Parades was okay, it had it's tracks but in my opinion, it was the beginning of the end for them. Decent band overall.
Digging: Intronaut - The Direction of Last Things
They were more skilled in the instrumental part than most of their contemporaries and they were fun, but lyrics were whiny and bad constructed, besides they took some of the worst cliches of rock and roll and their concpets were poorly executed and could have been better
I grew up during the era of MCR's biggest hits, so their discography, for better or worse, was a big part of my generation. Kind of a somber sendoff for the band, but this is a solid finisher song.
Yea i grew up with them, so i'm feeling some sadness. Song rules though.
I'm too old, when MCR was big I was like 15 and at first I really fuckin hated this band and the whole movement. I gave a chance, MCR had good songs but they had really notorious flaws, besides the bad shit of danger days is an abomination
IT'S FINALLY OVER
Digging: Guided by Voices - Forever Since Breakfast
I liked when they were a pop punk band.
I was a fan before Black Parade came out and i can say i still enjoy a few of there songs but most or there stuff was average or below. I'm there glad there done before they got even worse.
Besides the guitar noodling this song sounds like a crappy Gerard Way solo project or something.
At least they ended on Conventional Weapons.
The song is pretty boring but the video hits right in the nostalgia for me
Lol why all the hate for Danger Days? Was it not goth enough? It was a well-crafted alternative rock album with some brilliant songs. What's wrong with it?
I don't really know what else to tell you.
Concept is really bland, the dance rock anthems are lame and chessy and lyrics are bad, besides the
instrumentation went downhill. That a reason why that album has a really low rating
Conventional Weapons was pretty good, so its cool they went off with a semi-bang.
Lol at Danger Days being their best. Also lol at them being "goth"
reading comments in an MCR thread oh god
Digging: The Brave Little Abacus - Just Got Back from the Discomfort
I wouldn't even call Danger Days a concept album. As for the songs being cheesy, have you listened to The Black Parade? The lyrics are no worse on Danger Days than the rest of their discography. What does "their instrumentation" went downhill even mean? You don't like the instruments they used on the album? Seems like a valid criticism...
Curse, the goth was supposed to be in quotations.
Three Cheers was the greatest album though. Blew me away in middle-school. Kind of sad seeing them go, but you know, I bet they saw me go the same way when I stopped listening to them.
I liked The Black Parade but they went downhill.
does this mean we can get more leathermouth?
Three Cheers was one of the first albums that really got me into 'edgier' more alternative music so to speak. I still remember how incredible it was hearing it for the first time as a young impressionable 11 year old. I owe it everything in the world for that; it will always have huge nostalgic value for me.
I enjoyed The Black Parade for the most part as well. It's a shame they couldn't pull their shit together for one more decent full length; but I certainly won't be forgetting these guys anytime soon.
I love MCR, and not even in a guilty pleasure kind of way. This song kinda sucks though.
>still thinking mcr was pop punk
not gonna lie this hit right in the feels, hopefully the hiatus will be over in a couple years
I liked Conventional Weapons and Welcome to the black parade.
Good song to end with? sure. 4/5 of Conventional Weapons was pretty fantastic material and that was probably enough for them to stop, but this is fitting. Number Five seemed a bit more impactful though
I liked Danger Days and I liked this song.
MCR goth ????????????????????????????????????????
Have you heard bauhaus or christian death, lol
"Fake Your Death"
it's a sign
Digging: Grimes - Art Angels
song is bad
And here it is
MCR appreciation. Finally!
When these first came out I was telling everyone how their integrity and failure to compromise was unparalleled and actually gave the older generation a run for its money.
They were so gimmick less and were just unrelenting rock from the outset reaching the danger days monolith.
Digging: Six Finger Satellite - The Pigeon Is The Most Popular Bird
this band needs to disappear....
Digging: Strawberry Girls - American Graffiti
not soon enough sadly
Just stop beating the dead horse and let it decompose.
Video actually make me tear up. Fucking loved Bullets, Three Cheers, and The Black Parade. Soundtrack to my high school days, man.
I will forever rock those albums cause aside from the dramatics, they're damn fine releases.
Alright so I actually watched the video. It brought back a lot of memories. Pretty good song too.
I never gave Conventional Weapons a listen. I might do that later this week.
'Three Cheers' was my jam back in the day, still their best album.
Three Cheers was the heaviest album 12-year-old me had ever heard. I thought it was satanic. It's lame, but that album was my gateway drug to extreme music.
kinda sucks i wasn't really around in their prime, but from what i can tell this is a rather fitting final goodbye.
I didn't like the song at first but the weight of it set in. I was just expecting something super dark and depressing lol. This sounds like a bittersweet ending to a movie where two friends are saying their last goodbyes & finally go their separate ways... Kind of a "Sad to see you go but glad that it happened" sort of thing. I can only imagine what the rest of the album sounded like.
Maybe the title of this song is indicative of MCR's plans to eventually reuinite...
or surprise with a new album in 2014
That would be a badass publicity stunt.
I never liked these guys but I respected what they did. I really hated how badly mislabelled they were though, they were never emo and sounded nothing like early Jimmy Eat World/Sunny Day Real Estate/American Football etc.
Digging: Goodbye to Gravity - Mantras of War
Snide would be proud
Digging: Lord Snow - Solitude
Snide is back though
the public can never label "emo" correctly
and zero fucks were given this day
this was two days ago
good song that sounds like a goodbye
Anybody think the title is...suspicious?
To the people whining about MCR being labeled emo: music genres and scenes change with time. It's
really cool you know Sunny Day Real Estate and Rites of Spring and Jawbreaker and all those cult
classic emo bands, but it doesn't matter that MCR sounds nothing like them. Society labeled MCR emo,
so to some people they can be classified as such. That's fine. There's no right or wrong.
People that argue about genres are some of the least fun people to talk to on the planet.
three cheers was one of my favorites back in 2004...
Song was actually not bad. Never was the biggest MCR fan, but Black Parade was pretty great.
Hopefully now Gerard Way will focus more on his comics career.
Digging: Low - Ones and Sixes
i like this song
This song made me fucking cry. MCR, like Green Day, have always felt more like an old friend to me rather than a favourite band. And now they've broken up, it's like someone close to me has died. Yeah I'm a fanboy, but come on, you're all fanboys of some band or another. I will miss MCR dearly. Fake Your Death is a wonderful and fitting way to end it too
Digging: Grimes - Visions
