Aw I loved MCR back in the day. I recently posted the ‘I’m Not Okay’ video on my facebook when someone reminded me next year is our 10 year high school reunion. lol

Oh the memories…

I am a big fan of Type O Negative and when Peter Steele died (the lead singer) I was really heartbroken about it. Just so… sad. And I wanted to go out and have a drink in his honor but nobody wanted to go with me, so I just went to drink alone (the only time I’ve ever done this.)

That was the biggest thing I can remember, but nearly all of the bands I love are broken up now, so I know how you feel. It’s not lame to be sad about it, when music can be such a huge part of your life. But just be greatful that they did as much as they did, and you’ll always have their music to turn to even if theyre not making new stuff anymore.

Plus, you never know if they may have a reunion or make some side project thats really similar.

@Elrodien:  I’ve clung to AFI for dear life for years so I understand completely. Oh yeah I’m Not Okay is such a reminder of HS… the video is spot on! lol Plus Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge came out the week we got out of school so it’ll always be a reminder of the end of that chapter of life.

@Elrodien:  well they are still together but no word on any new music… I loved Blaqk Audio too because I am really into electronic dance music. I hope Davey Havok (my other husband) keeps making music with both groups. I had heard BA released a new cd at the end of 2012 but I haven’t gotten a chance to pick it up yet because of a long winter of being sick and a whole bunch of life changes, new jobs, moving ect. lol

WHAT?!?! That is so not okay =(

I had a weird moment listening to them in the car the other day…was rocking out to their song Teenagers, and suddenly realized ‘Crap, I actually WAS a teenager when this song came out. And now I’m in my mid-20s. When the hell did that happen?’ And I’m also with @HappilyEverAfter54: on I’m Not Okay, I love that song. And am totally going to have it stuck in my head now.

MCR helped me with a lot of hard times too…although my obsessive, I’d still be crushed if they broke up band is Good Charlotte. Yes, contrary to popular belief, they DO still make music, they’ve had like three albums out since most people stopped listening to them, haha. I’ve seen them in concert at least 6 times and met them a couple of times too. On hiatus at the moment due to families and other business, but they’ve discussed doing a new record this year, fingers crossed!

@Elrodien:  yeah, this was way back in the day when they first started the band.. I’d get stuck selling merch bc no one else wanted to do it.  πŸ™‚  I also had a short lived gig as gerard’s “costume designer” which wasn’t as fun as it might sound since his nickname at the time was stinky and I’d get to duct tape him into his ripped jeans since he was too poor to buy new ones.

Oh no, how sad πŸ™ I loved them and I actually thought they might be coming out with a new album soon. Guess I was wrong.

I LOVE MCR!!! This makes me sad too. I think I hoped that I would still someday see them in concert.

They came to Penn State my freshman year. I bought me and my boyfriend at the time tickets. I got ALL dressed up (in my cutest punk outfit no less) for the concert. We were out to dinner before and the waitress came up to our table and said “I know you were on your way to the concert (did my black eyeliner and nail polish and the 50 jellyband bracelets on my wrists give it away? As well as my jean mini skirt and black etnies????) and I just wanted to let you know that they have had to cancel it.” I swear I almost cried right there in the restaurant. Turns out they got food poisoning from their previous gig the day or two before πŸ™

Still not over it. Obviously.
