20 Emo Songs From the 2000s We Still Secretly Listen To
MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, “WELCOME TO THE BLACK PARADE”
My Chemical Romance is peak emo, and The Black Parade is their greatest masterpiece. You can’t go to an Emo Nite without spotting at least one attendee decked out in frontman Gerard Way’s iconic black marching band uniform, complete with black and white makeup. Those first few piano notes from “Welcome to the Black Parade” are still enough to make any former emo kid stop dead in their tracks and belt out the anthem of our sad generation. And the theatrics in that video are almost literally to die for.
