Rising from New York’s underground to the forefront of modern rock waves, My Chemical Romance served as one of the biggest rock sensations in the early ’00s. In 2001, frontman Gerard Way filled the line-up with drummer Matt Pelissier, guitarist Ray Toro, bassist Mikey Way and guitarist Frank Iero. Their turbulent music was known for a good balance of theatrical vocals and neo-goth style with a borrow of emo-punk. Their junior effort The Black Parade album released in 2006 put the band’s name on the map. Classic tracks “Welcome to the Black Parade,” “Teenagers” and “I Don’t Love You” were born in this album and are still beloved by fans.
To celebrate their tenth anniversary, My Chemical Romance released The Black Parade with the deluxe reissue in 2016, which was formatted as a 2CD/3LP set. The reissue of The Black Parade/Living with Ghosts contained a second disc of demos and live tracks. You can check out HERE.
