“Welcome to the Black Parade” used to be my least favorite song on My Chemical Romance’s The Black Parade, which happens to be my favorite album of all time. With over half a billion Spotify streams to date and a permanent spot on every mid-2000s emo nostalgia playlist, it is by far their most iconic song. But I skip it almost every time it comes on. I still like it, but once you’ve listened to a few too many mid-2000s emo nostalgia playlists, you start to get very tired of that G note intro.

Her hair appeared darker, her bright blue eyes seemed duller, and age had faded her once freckled face.
