The first song I heard from MCR was 'The Sharpest Lives'. And I have to addmit I didn't like them at first. The style of music that I was listening to back then was completly different. But lately my music style has changed and I love it.
The Black Parade helped me somewhat with my fear of death. My whole childhood, (before I knew about MCR) I was afraid of commiting sucicide because I believed that I would go to hell. When I watched Welcome To The Black Parade music video, I lost all of that fear. And I really hope that when I do die, the Black Parade picks me up :D.
