Is NJ rock band My Chemical Romance about to announce a reunion? Joe’s prediction
My Chemical Romance uploaded a cryptic video to its Facebook page today that has set the rock world on fire with speculation.
Amid rumors of a fifth studio album in 2013, the North Jersey rock band announced its break-up. This news took fans (like me) by surprise, especially since it seemed like the band was getting better with age.
My Chemical Romance's sound had changed drastically over the years, but for young people like me who became fans in the early 2000s, it seemed as though they matured with us. Then poof, they were gone.
Now this! This tease is leading to a lot of rumors regarding a new album or a tour, but I decided to dig a little deeper. The symbol contains the letters M, C, R and X. MCR stands for My Chemical Romance. "Uhhhhhh, ya think?" — that's you right now. The X could very well represent the roman numeral for 10. It's been 10 years since their rock opera The Black Parade came out.
I predict a 10-year anniversary tour for The Black Parade. I predict they will pull a page out of Bruce Springsteen's book and perform the album from start to finish. I predict that I will pay any price to see this happen.
Also, I feel like now is as good a time as any to reveal my top 5 My Chemical Romance songs. I would love to hear your feedback.
5. "Bulletproof Heart"
4. "Thank You For The Venom"
2. "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)"
