Discussion: MCR's LegacyA few years ago, when Mikey sent Gerard a birthday tweet, he called Gerard a “future rock legend.” I’ve wondered lately if MCR will stand the test of time. They’re not one of those bands who had one or two hits and then fizzled into obscurity, but I’m not sure if I see people still listening to MCR in future decades. Their current fans will probably listen to them as adults, and maybe their kids will become fans, but do I think MCR will be the next Beatles? Probably not.More Like This
I think they’ll last longer than some other bands, because their music and concepts were innovative. I think of them as the thinking man’s “emo” band (not that I consider them emo, but I can’t think of a better word.) They had dark, angsty songs that teenagers love, but without the usual weak vocals, bland and childish lyrics, and repetitive tunes that have been used in a thousand other songs. Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge doesn’t sound like anyt

How Dost Thou Kill?
I kill by feeding and existing,
I kill by living my cursed life.
I prowl the alleys at midnight
To search for prime prey
A pretty, youthful harlot,
A buff, young, athletic boy
Just a few of the entrees
Spread across the city's buffet.
When I find what I search for
I follow them till they drip
With fear and paranoia
I let them hear the rhythm of
My footsteps on cold cement
The sound slowly bends them
And steers them to insanity.
Then I go in for the kill.
Cornering them, I bow my head
So reverently into their necks
Sweetly scented supple flesh pops
Under the tips of my teeth
Hot red life flows over my lips
And catches on my dead tongue
It renews my strength as it
Gushes down my waiting throat.
I lick my lips free and clean
Of the glistening ruby remains
That were my nightly feast.
I abandon the body and turn
To walk down an ad

"...I knew it was a gun, Rich. I was making a joke, you know? Because your gun was sticking out like- oh, nevermind. You friggin' aliens will never get the joke."
"You could try the line again? I will laugh this time."
"No. It's ruined now."
"Is that why you are upset, then?"
"I'm not upset. It just would've been a good joke."
"You are upset. Your symptoms show it."
"Gah- I told you to stop doing that! You don't need to know my body temperature or metabolism at the moment or whatever the heck you were looking for. Stop using your weird power things."
