In 2006, drawing on their love of Music/PinkFloyd's {{progressive rock}} and {{glam rock}} bands such as {{Queen}} and T.Rex, they combined these influences with their old post-hardcore sound to create what is considered their defining work, titled ''Music/TheBlackParade''. While most popular rock bands in 2006 were focused on being raw and garage influenced, The Black Parade was intentionally bombastic and excessive, reflecting the 70s rock bands that Gerard Way loved and the hip, indie establishment treated with disdain. Throw in its rock opera storyline of a dying cancer patient and you have a 1970s album brought to life in the twenty-first century. The album proved to be a critical and commercial success, with several review sites and magazines placing it as one of the best albums of the decade.

An American rock band, often used as a prime example of the Music/{{Emo}} genre (but [[BerserkButton don't tell them that]]). Their music is best described as a mixture of PostHardcore, PopPunk accessibility, horror-punk influenced lyrics and stylings, and a heaping dose of over the top theatrics and album rock storytelling straight out of the 1970's (all of this presented with the look of a GothRock band). They formed in [[{{Joisey}} New Jersey]] around late 2001 with their first song, "Skylines and Turnstiles." The band claims that the theme and style of their music was initially inspired by their feelings during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

** Draculoids! Which are not really vampires. Just {{ooks}} in Halloween masks.
* {{Out Of GenreExperience}}: "I'm Not Okay" sounds like a Music/JimmyEatWorld, Music/FallOutBoy, or Get Up Kids style {{Pop Punk}}-influenced Emo song, in contrast to the rest of ''Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge'' which veers closer to PostHardcore and classic Emo.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Performed an (admittedly sweet, once you get over the absurdity of it all) song about uniqueness on ''[[YoGabbaGabba Yo Gabba Gabba!]]''. Promptly never brought up by the band afterwards. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the case of the fandom, who do like to bring that up every now and again.
