However, while “Welcome To The Black Parade” may be regarded as one of My Chemical Romance’s most popular songs, it actually isn’t the most-viewed music video of theirs on YouTube.
In fact, “Teenagers” currently holds the record with 120,311,982 views at the time of press. “Famous Last Words” also has more views than “Welcome To The Black Parade,” with over 103 million views.
Recently, My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way’s comic book has been turned into a hit Netflix show. The Umbrella Academy premiered last month and, for a time, was the most-binged TV series on Netflix according to Dark Horse Comics. You can watch the trailer below.
Additionally, MCR rhythm guitarist Frank Iero has been working on music of his own with new project Frank Iero And The Future Violents. Earlier today, Iero took to his social media to announce the coolest meet and greet package we have ever seen.
