Last week I divulged my strange yet unquestionable fondness for My Chemical Romance.
Their upcoming release, The Black Parade, is a grand, ambitious concept album that the band hopes will evoke memories of Queen's A Night at the Opera, Pink Floyd's The Wall and of course -- Sgt. Pepper (Use Your Illusion I & II -- not so much).
It'll be surprising and revelatory, bloated with self-importance, or some combination of both.
The bottom line though: the first single is fucking great.
Tonight's pick is the new video from MCR, Welcome to the Black Parade.
