Fall Out Boy and MCR both are occasionally cringe worthy, but catchy enough that I don't care.

Who's speaking for this generation anyway?

Their videos were number one on TRL all the time. They got played on pop radio.

I think they sued Lookout for unpaid royalties, so Reprise now reprints Kerplunk and 1039 Smoothed Out/Slappy Hours.

The Black Parade was a kickass album. Their other work had some pretty good stuff too. Most people who don't like them only don't because lol emo.

I'm gonna miss these guys. But everyone else I know overreacted to this. It's just a band not like your life is purposeless now. If they were that important, you still have their old music anyway. They'll probably go on a farewell tour later and you'll have a last chance to see them live.

I heard about this last night. I'm really disappointed, especially considering how sudden it seemed. They were a perennial top 5 favorite band for me.

I think Mikey Way was involved in a "cheating scandal" about a month ago. I can't help but feel this is somehow related to that, and it's a damn shame if that's the case.

I never was into them, but they were okay.



They were one of my best friend's favorite band.

They were big yea, with a massive marketing campaign.

But the biggest band/artist in the world?

2006: Not in the top 10: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006_i..._albums_of_2006

or

2007: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007_i...albums_globally

or

2008: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_i...6_United_States

To me, the biggest bands in the world are the ones who sell the most albums.

Nirvana were the 2nd highest selling band with Nevermind in 91, Pearl Jam at 3 with Ten, Chillis were at 6 with BSSM.

Imagine how big they were, and then compare it to the Black Parade in 2006. Nowhere near as big. The Chillis had the biggest selling Rock album of 2006 with Stadium Arcadium.

In 2007 it was The Eagles and Linkin Park globally with Nickleback being the biggest rock band in the US.

in 2008 is was AC/DC, Metallica and Coldplay.

In fact, I don't see them topping any yearly charts in any list from 2006, the year they released the Black Parade. I think they were everywhere, but they weren't selling anything near The Chillis, Metallica, Link Park. But I agree, they were huuuuge amongst a certain demographic.

I'm struggling to find a top selling rock albums of those years, but still they aren't close to the bands I listed and those bands were the biggest.

They were decent musicians that marketed themselves very effectively and tried to "stand for something."

Never a group that I connected with but many people did.

My girlfriend is very upset.
