Can you believe this song was released 10 years ago?! This seems insane to me; this was definitely one of my “emo” jams back in the day!

I remember just how all-consuming and intensely captivating this song was – it just took over the scene and saw a whole generation of emo kids wearing hussar-style jackets in homage to the band!

‘Welcome To The Black Parade’ was also the first and only UK Number 1 for the band but it was truly well deserved! This 5-minute epic masterpiece was just that; a masterpiece! It had everything going for it, the calm piano introduction leading to the rousing military drums into the full-on, in-your-face guitar riffs.

The video for the song was epic too – it sees “The Patient” die and get welcomed by “The Black Parade” into what can only be the afterlife.


It’s just a remarkable, well-crafted song that will surely be admired by future generations of emo-kids for years to come!
