Look alive, sunshine! The organisers of Death Returns bring you another tribute show and this time, honoring our favorite alternate-emo band that once inspired a generation of eyeliner-drawing youth, My Chemical Romance.

My Chemical Romance first caught commercial attention after releasing their second studio album, Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge that featured hits like ‘Helena’, ‘Ghost Of You’ and ‘I’m Not Okay’. But it wasn’t until Black Parade that MCR ascended to legendary status after ‘I Don’t Love You’, ‘Famous Last Words’ and ‘Welcome To The Black Parade’ became cult classics and the album was nominated for the Grammys in 2006. Now disbanded, frontman Gerard Way released one solo record and is currently writing comics while other members are working on their individual music projects.

Malaysian bands are keen to relive the emo-Myspace days by covering the best My Chemical Romance songs there is, starting with ‘Teenagers’ and ‘Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na)’ by Spooky Wet Dreams, ‘Famous Last Words’ by ArC, ‘Welcome To The Black Parade’ by The Red Panda Parade, ‘Helena’ by Cathreena and many more.

So throw on the black dress and mix in with the lot at Ultimate Blast Studio, Seri Kembangan this weekend!
