My Nightly Middle Finger to MTV

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.

I actually really like this song. Which is kind of a suprised since I got really tired of them after `I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me You Love`

This is pretty stylish and really full of interesting ticks and hooks. I actually hope the rest of the album is great. It'll suprise me. But I do hope so.

Oh and Thanks!

Just thought I'd let y'all know, you can buy this EP on iTunes for $0.99. I don't know why but they're selling the whole album for a buck.
