My Chemical Romance quickly rose to prominence among the emo and neo-punk bands that cluttered the rock landscape of the 2000s – largely on the back of this concept album about the post-death journeying of man who dies in hospital. According to songwriter Gerard Way, “This album is a story of a man, known as ‘The Patient’ who dies in a hospital. He goes on an odyssey and examines his life and the mistakes he has made. His strongest memory is his dad taking him to a parade when he was a child. So when death comes for him, it comes in the form of a black parade.”
