3 years without My Chemical Romance

Earlier this week on March 22, 2016,  marked the 3 year anniversary of when emo band My Chemical Romance called it quits. While former members are still making music and successful solo careers, there is still a huge hole in many fans hearts that only MCR can fulfil.

Ex – Frontman Gerard Way, recently tweeted his acknowledgement of the anniversary. “The last three years definitely feel like ten,” Way said. “In a much better place- happy, productive. Of course I miss everyone. Thanks for the support.”

 

Although Way leaves the anniversary on a positive note, many fans would love a potential reunion and comeback of the band, even though many of the former members have moved on to bigger projects in the music scene.

Until then, one can always reminisce on the greatness that was mid-2000’s MCR in all their glory. And if Gerard feels better then we should be okay… (we’re not okay, we promise).

Revive those MCR feels with some throwback videos below of the iconic band :

The iconic 1994 album from Green Day turns 22 today and punk fans alike are rejoicing.

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong says of the disc, “Back then, I just wanted to write songs I could be proud of and be able to play in five years.”

By the time of release, Dookie peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and went on to reach Diamond certification for shipping over 10 million copies and received the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album in 1995.

Today, the album has sold over 20 million copies and is still accredited to be the album that skyrocketed the band to mainstream fame.

From legendary tracks like “Longview” or “Welcome to Paradise”, there is a little piece of Dookie era Green Day that every fan loves and carries with them.

A few Dookie and Green Day tributes were uploaded in the album’s honor for the anniversary on social media.

Take a look at some tributes below :

Thank you Green Day for making such a legendary album that continues to live on in punk music history.
