My Chemical Romance – "Welcome To The Black Parade”
From "The Black Parade"
It is funny… I was struggling with what song I wanted to choose today, and as I was driving home this song came on the radio. This is the first time I have heard it and the lyrics at the very beginning grabbed my attention and I had to turn it up.
When I was a young boy,
My Father took me into the city,
To see a marching band.
He said, "Son when, you grow up,
Would you be the savior of the broken,
The beaten and the damned?"
He said, "Will you defeat them,
Your demons and all the non-believers,
The plans that they have made?
"Because one day, I leave you,
A phantom to lead you in the summer,
To join the black parade."
I don’t know exactly why but I was so drawn in by the lyrics and the tone that lead vocalist, Gerard Way, sang especially at the very beginning that I felt this had to be my choice for today.
I like the "punkish" vibe this band has, but also how they mix almost a late ‘80’s early ‘90’s guitar in there as well. This is a fun song to drive to and to crank up for some good tunes.
Check out the video on YouTube if you like, it is pretty cool.
