MCR, FOB or P!ATD lyrics: Can you tell the difference?
Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance have been making waves in the emo scene since the early 2000s. One cannot talk about the latest wave of emo bands without discussing at least one of the three aforementioned acts, who over the years have formed an emo trinity of sorts.
With all three bands active again thanks to the MCR reunion, do you think you have what it takes to decipher which lyrics came from one of the three bands mentioned above? Put your early 2000s emo knowledge to the test with our quiz below!
More on My Chemical Romance
Before returning to the stage Dec. 20, My Chemical Romance played what would become their last show at Bamboozle 2012 in their home state of New Jersey. The emo kings announced their first U.S. tour in nine years late last month with the Easter egg-packed “A summoning…” video.
Quick sell-outs led to MCR adding a second show in Newark, New Jersey, as well as two additional dates in Los Angeles, California. Following news of the entire tour selling out, MCR also added a fourth and final Los Angeles show for Oct. 16.
The quick sell-out isn’t entirely surprising given the hype around the reunion since their first show back was announced. MCR also swiftly sold out three shows in the U.K. with a run of other European shows as well as New Zealand, Australia and Japan scheduled right now.
The band’s first show back ended up selling out even quicker than the tour. Fans trying to get into the first reunion show faced tickets being bought in three to four minutes. Many fans were unable to get tickets due to various issues with Ticketmaster, leading to resale tickets climbing by hundreds of dollars.
Aside from My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy will also be hitting the road later this year alongside Green Day and Weezer on the Hella Mega tour. You can check out the full list of My Chemical Romance tour dates and Hella Mega tour dates below.
