Album: The Black Parade by My Chemical Romance
Released: October 23rd, 2006
My Chemical Romance was a rock band from Newark, New Jersey that was active from 2001 to 2013. The band’s line-up was made up of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryer. Founded in the wake of 9/11, My Chemical Romance released their debut album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love in 2002 that was followed by Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge two years later, which led to their commercial success. The band topped their previous releases with the 2006 concept album, The Black Parade, which gained a decent amount of critical acclaim and led them on to an arduous touring schedule. The band’s final release, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, was also a concept album that had more pop sentiments and received positive reviews despite alienating some fans. My Chemical romance broke up in 2013 and have since released a greatest hits album in 2014 and a tenth anniversary reissue of The Black Parade in 2016.
