Ahhhhhh, to be young again. For many who did get to see bands like Paramore, My Chemical Romance, and Fall Out Boy over a decade ago, consider yourself lucky. Granted, the stages these bands were playing on at Vans Warped Tour during the summer weren’t exactly small, but they weren’t the arena-level status that these bands are now (or would be, if MCR were still a band).
Proof that there is nothing better than seeing your favorite band can be found below, in the form of My Chemical Romance’s 2005 live performance of “I’m Not Okay (I Promise)”. We’ll let you cry your little scene hearts out since they’re not a band anymore, but it’s also important to note how fantastic Gerard Way’s solo stuff is. They had a great run and accomplished huge things. Nothing left on the table.
