For the past 90 years, Macy’s have been holding their annual Thanksgiving Day Parade. What originally started in 1924 as a small parade put on by Macy’s employees has become an award-winning tradition that is flocked to by over three million people each year, while 50 million more watch from the warmth of their own homes.

While it should come as no surprise that every year the parade promises performances by big name artists such as Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber and the Jonas Brothers, bands from our scene have also been able to get on the lineup time and time again. Take a look below for some of the best performances from Good Charlotte, Cobra Starship and more.
