Welcome to the Black Parade (5:10)

Cover of The Black Parade

From The Black Parade and 15 other releases

Originally conceived of while writing their first album under the tentative title “The Five of Us Are Dying”, the song was finally finished for inclusion as the central song in the album “The Black Parade”.
The music video for this song utilizes imagery reminiscent of a grimly interpreted “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” This song was the first single to showcase MCR’s more theatrical approach to recording, with many tracks used in recording and Gerard’s movement in the video being quite similar to Freddie Mercury’s bravado in Queen’s grandiose stage performances.

    Hold you breath there.. before you will listen to this song you need to know that is one of the most beautiful songs for a boy who got stuck to be a freak in the past and i appreciate this song with all of my heart.. and will fight for the broken and the damned everytime i can.
