Yesterday I saw the Misfits live for the first time. It was probably one of, if not the best, gigs of my life. They played so many songs (over 30 I’d say, I lost count), including my favourites like Dig Up Her Bones, Scream, Helena and Descending Angel. The pit was pretty epic too.
Not a quote, but I wanted to share this on a blog I feel more people would appreciate my excitement on :’)
(It was the newest incarnation of the Misfits, but it’s an epic line-up anyway, and I met both Jerry and Eric so I’m pretty happy about that.)

GERARD WAY: And I love that, like they needed at least a little help ‘cause we’re in that regard. But the notion of saving yourself too is a good thing, I think we even needed to learn, but in a positive way. Like saying: save yourself I’ll hold them back, doesn’t necessarily mean I’m turning my back on you. It just means that you’re strong enough to do it without me, you know?
This is better than I could ever phrase it. And I agree wholeheartedly.
See my previous message about this :)
The whole Sarah thing :) I don’t want to really go into it publicly, in case it causes heated debate like other things have — if you message me off anon I can answer more thoroughly.
They can move on and create new things now. And Gerard, Mikey, Frank and Ray will have more time for their significant others and their kids. They haven’t seemed very happy lately. I wouldn’t want them to stay as a band and be unhappy. It would be too selfish. So, yeah, I’m relieved :)
I don’t know. I kinda saw it coming. I’m relieved in a way.
I want you guys to know that when I first started listening to you, I changed in some way into the person I am today. Before I started listening to your music, I felt like nothing and I was down in my life to the point where I was afraid to go anywhere because I was afraid of getting pushed around and bullied and I was considering suicide. But then I started hearing a lot about My Chemical Romance and the first day I listened to your music, I sat in my chair for the entire day in front of my computer just listening and memorizing every bit of Welcome to the Black Parade, The Sharpest Lives, and Disenchanted. I still do the same today with just about every song your band has ever made, and I started being who I think is best and not caring about what others thought of me, and I know this sounds cheesy and all, but your music changed me in some way that I can’t comprehend. Your music is probably one of the best things to happen to me, and I want to thank you.
Everybody makes mistakes and gets angry, and Frank especially can be reckless at times. I can’t say I’m happy with the comment but it’s something that doesn’t hugely shock me.
My Chemical Romance, but they’re both good.
But remember, just because MCR is no more doesn’t mean their legacy, words and music won’t live on. And Gerard, Ray, Frank and Mikey will continue to create things.
