In celebration of International MCR Day, join us as we dive into the lesser-known, underappreciated (but still 100% awesome) corners of My Chemical Romance's back catalologue, and listen to a Spotify playlist of ALL of these songs here.
HEAVEN HELP US
Is this 'The Black Parade' B-side the best song MCR never put on an actual album? Quite possibly...
HONEY, THIS MIRROR ISN'T BIG ENOUGH FOR THE TWO OF US
Can we just take a second to appreciate that WAY, way before commercial success, MCR were writing amazing songs.
MY WAY HOME IS THROUGH YOU
Another 'The Black Parade'-era B-side, another lost gem from My Chemical Romance's back catalogue. Just try not to fist pump along to this.
Proof (in case you've forgotten) that latter-era MCR ruled, too.
GIVE 'EM HELL, KID
Just a banging, underappreciated album track from 'Three Cheers...'-era MCR. Neglect this song at your peril.
THE ONLY HOPE FOR ME IS YOU
Consider this an official reminder that while it was a departure for the band, 'Danger Days...' was one of the most ambitious things they've ever done.
Remember 'Life On The Murder Scene'? Then you'll remember this sombre, acoustic-led jam.
Yeah, another huge song from 'Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge' that you may well have forgotten about.
VAMPIRES WILL NEVER HURT YOU
Worth it for the super old-school video alone.
There may be more popular songs on 'The Black Parade', but this is one of the most emotional, epic tracks MCR ever put to tape.
You forgot 'I Brought You My Bullets...' was that good? It's okay, here's a reminder.
Worth it for the intro alone. ...well are you ready, Ray?
Yeah, we know you've heard this song before. But it doesn't get anywhere near the credit it deserves.
