YMMV / The Black Parade

  • Awesome Music: "Welcome to the Black Parade" and "Famous Last Words".
  • Ear Worm: "Dead!" Also, "Teenagers".
    • "Mama", "Sleep".
  • Heartwarming Moments: In the music video for "Cancer" we see a little girl cut off a very large amount of her hair and give it to her brother, who had just come home from a bout of chemotherapy.
  • Memetic Mutation: WHEN I WAS
  • Nightmare Fuel: The video for "Famous Last Words", both the "official" and "leaked" versions. Various other songs such as "Blood", "Mama" and "This Is How I Disappear" contain lyrics which may be disturbing to some.
    • The "Famous Last Words" video is also responsible for lighting Bob Bryar's leg on fire. Ironically, he attempted to keep filming because he didn't want to frighten anyone.
    • The abrupt end of opening track "The End" is also a little creepy, especially since it's a song about dying.
  • Tear Jerker: "Disenchanted", "Cancer", "Welcome to the Black Parade" and "Famous Last Words".
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: The album effectively divided the fanbase in two, as while many grassroot fans cried "Sellouts!" new fans asked "what's wrong with it?" This bought about The Great Poser Hunt Of 2006/07.


  • Evil Is Sexy: Belial is quite a looker in both his human forms. Mulciber as well.
  • Foe Yay: Jordan and Belialís relationship is overflowing with this. Belial also lampshades the potential for this between himself and Michael.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Belialís nickname for Jordan ďmy petĒ isnít just something he calls her to annoy her. In his mind, he doesnít consider her to be his equal and so she is rather like a pet of some sort.
  • Iron Woobie: Jordan. Michael is a close second.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Demons can inhabit as many different bodies as they want to so you never know where they are until itís too late. Your dreams arenít safe either.
  • Paranoia Fuel: Before Jordan learns to sense demonic energy, she has to deal with the fact that anyone around her could be a demon. Anyone.
