The one thing that is always inevitable in life is that things come to an end. In the wee small hours yesterday, My Chemical Romance announced via their website that they were splitting up. The one-time Download Festival headliners – whether you loved or loathed them – were undeniably one of the biggest rock bands of the last decade. To that end, this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist is dedicated to the band that made it cool to hate on “emo”.
With four albums, six EPs, and a load of bonus tracks all over the place, we decided that the easiest thing to do for this week’s Slaylist was to recreate MCR’s setlist from their final ever headlining show, which took place at the Festival Hall in Melbourne, Australia, over a year ago.
Spotify is available to most of Europe, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and a load of other countries for free – though obviously you’re better off shelling out either £5 or £10 a month for one of Spotify’s premium packages, as then you can listen to our Slaylists without having them interrupted by adverts. For our readers in countries not currently serviced by Spotify….well, by this point you’ve either stopped reading because you hate MCR or you’ve gone and put on your copy of Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge so it doesn’t really matter, now does it?.
