For those who don’t know, here in Bat Country, the Wife and I are super-big fans of the rock band My Chemical Romance (and no, we are not 16-years-old and angst ridden). Anyway, after downloading some tracks from their recent amazing performance in London at the iTunes Festival (there are a ton of great shows for free to stream/view, and also for paid download; something for every musical taste) I started looking around for more live stuff from MCR. You sure gotta love the internet: yes, while it is kind of lame and annoying that more and more people eschew rocking out at shows for holding up their expensive cameras and smart phones, on the other-hand, it is so fantastic to be able to see so much live stuff on youtube, especially shows that you have been at. My sister, wife, and I, we were here at Terminal 5 in New York City, in the following high-quality videos from this really great My Chemical Romance concert. I can’t get over how good the quality of these videos are; very glad that this concertking69 character (check out the rest of his videos) was there to capture such a fabulous live performance. With a lot of their family and friends in attendance, these shows were particularly awesome, as this was a big homecoming seeing as though the boys are from North Jersey
The opening song of the concert is the opening song on the new album, Danger Days: True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys
We all know this one: a rock song that, in my opinion, is on the verge on entering the modern-classic anthem territory. They just KILL it live here.
This song right here, it is just MADE to played live; bananas, every time.
Another one off the new album that just rocks exquisitely, and was written as a cheeky “Fuck Off” to the Twighlight series.
This is an oldie but goodie, going way back to their first album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. So thrilled that they have dusted this brilliant song off and have played it a lot on their current tour.
