Damn… RIP MCR

I was quite surprised to hear the news that MCR had broken up after 12 years of making music. I was at work listening to my favourite radio station when one of the DJs mentioned it and then played “Ghost of You” from their “1st album, Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge” (his words not mine); I’ll forgive him considering it was their real “first” mainstream success.

I remember when I first heard MCR, it was just a random song that a friend had sent me and said that I might like. I went from that first song to finding all of their singles (this was in the Three Cheers era) and from that day on I became a fan. When The Black Parade came out I was in love, it was such an amazing concept album and will always have great memories especially considering one of my dad’s favourite songs was “Cancer” which reminded him of my aunt who had suffered and succumbed to the disease when I was a child; my dad also passed away from cancer in late 2007, and I tried to have the song played at his memorial but unfortunately I was the only one (still living) who understood why my father wanted it played so I was vetoed out.

Anyways, thanks MCR for the great memories and I wish you the best.

“The Kids From Yesterday” Music Video

Monday January 16, 2012 Posted by: Frank

Hello friends… Here is the official video for our new single “The Kids From Yesterday” . This will be the last single released from our album Danger Days, and we decided what better song to end on than our collective favorite. This song means a lot of different things to us individually and we hope it speaks to you as well. When deciding what kind of video would work the best with the song we immediately thought of a “video collage” …something that would show the progression of the band over the past 10 years leading up to one of our most memorable moments, closing the Reading and Leeds festivals this past summer. We began collecting footage and literally stumbled upon an incredible video done by a talented young lady named Emily Eisemann. She had made a fan video, put it up on YouTube and it summed up what we had been trying so very hard to make, perfectly. So we gave her a call, put our videos together, and the rest, as they say, is history.
