My Chemical Romance = 80s Hair Metal

I have heard Welcome to the Black Parade by My Chemical Romance, though the play count is zero.

Now, I am not really down with My Chemical Romance. I remembered them coming on the scene around the same time as the Killers and I was bemused.

Welcome to the Black Parade is very Queen -- it's theatrical and completely over-the-top, while remaining entertaining. I imagine that they love being in the studio.

That they are beloved by indie bloggers is funny, because I can just as easily see Poison or Skid Row performing their songs. It's so 80s Hair Metal.
