Okay. So, one of my bffs, the glorious raineadams, is obsessed with punk and heavy metal music. Such as My Chemical Romance. (I thought she was psycho ’cause she has shirts with her bands on them and I thought they were creepy and I listened to Pierce the Veil once..*shivers*). So, I just was like, okay then, she’s babbling again, I’m gonna go read my book.
And then last night, I was trying to upload more songs to my Ipod and I see this folder under our Music folder that says “My Chemical Romance”.
My dad was up there too, and I say, “Dad, you like My Chemical Romance?”
and he’s like “Yeah…”
“My friend’s obsessed with that band. Along with heavy metal.”
“Well, heavy metal sucks and is useless to the world. This is good though.” I’m serious. He said that.
“Uhhh….okay. I’ll tell her you said so. Can I have The Black Parade? [I’d read the lyrics too Welcome to the Black Parade on an amazing PJO/HoO fanfiction here, so I’d heard of it.]”
So I got the Black Parade. And by then it was like 10:30, way past my [overly strict] bedtime. So, I’m about to unplug my Ipod from our desktop, and I’m like, “Dad…Why is there a band called The Clash on here?”
“It’s the original punk music band. If your friendconsiders herself an punk/heavy metal person and she hasn’t heard of the Clash or the Sex Pistols, the she’s a [makes L on forehead] loser.”
“Ummm…okay Dad. Wow. The Sex Pistols?”
“Yeah! They’re great! One of the originals!”
Then we had a 20 minute talk about ‘the origin of punk music and heavy metal’ and I’m just thinking, “Dad, I really need to go to bed now.” It was interesting. I had no clue my Dad liked punk music and thought heavy metal sucked and liked a band called the Sex Pistols. Different night, definitely.
So then I listened to Welcome to the Black Parade and The End by MCR.
My reaction exactly. I was just like, WHOA. This is actually REALLY GOOD! And then I was uploading more today, and I find out he has 14 albums of them:
The Black Parade
The Black Parade Is Dead

I know some of these aren’t actually albums, but still. Wow. So now I’m gonna have an MCR marathon.
And all day, me and my friend were singing the beginning.
And some gifs to celebrate:
