    My Daughter loves MCR and it has rubbed off on me, there is so much going on in their music.
    I used to play it in the car when she was with me for her benefit. It is still in my playlists and I enjoy it alone.
    Great vocal harmonies and tasty guitar flourishes!

    It's funny you mention Blink 182, I think I go back to Dude Ranch with them.
    The first concert my daughter asked me to take her to was Blink and the light bulb went off for me. My Punk/Ska/hardcore music had so much overlap with her pop punk and emo. We've seen so many cool shows together from all eras and genres it's been a blast. And I no longer feel any shame for liking pop punk.

    I used to listen to a lot of their stuff, not so much anymore other than their danger days album and the odd other track.

    One of my students wanted to learn this tune, and I was knocked out with how good I thought it was, both composition and performance-wise.

    One of the things I miss about teaching is how the kids helped keep me current. They still find the good stuff.

    My students introduced me to the song this fall. Some of the images in that video could make a statue.

    My son introduced me to them when he was little. We would sing along to this album every morning when I took him to school.

    (oddly enough, I've never seen the video - Lucas Haas and I were in movie together, many years ago.)

    "Welcome To The Black Parade" is, to me, the finest Queen album never recorded by Queen.

    Glad I am not the only one who gets the Queen vibe, heavy vibe too.

    That album was a masterpiece: up there with Queen and Cheap Trick.

    "Teenagers" is a super fun song to play.

    Good to see this album (and this band) getting some credit!

    I remember being really impressed by it when a student brought it to me to teach them in the summer of 2006.

    Specifically, I remember thinking that "someday people will look back at this album from 2006, and reminisce about how music was so much better back then..."

    It really is a masterpiece and a touchstone album for a generation. In much the same way we think of Guns and Roses and Bon Jovi as 80s bands, MCR and Green Day will be the hallmark bands for the naughties.

    At least that's what I suspect.

    At the time it came out, I remember it being like an emotional lightning rod. If I mentioned it to other students, they either loved it or hated it, but there was no middle ground.

    It's too bad that the band broke up.

    I'm no expert on them either, but count me in as one of the older guys who enjoyed their stuff. Thanks for reminding me...

    The girl who brought that song to me was 12. She is now 25, lives with her fiance, and the only reason I know this is because I'm still friends with her father!

    He's a textbook example of the chronically cool dad. He's taken some lessons from me too over the years, but he likes the Cramps and Dead Kennedys...

    I think good music reminds us of people. That's part of what makes it good.

    That’s kind of funny. I’ve had he opposite experience with them. Aside from a few tracks on danger days I couldn’t get into that album, whereas I had and listened to all their other albums fairly regularly.
