Feature Article - Songs That Make You Wanna: Engage in Raygun Battle
The world has ended, a select few have survived, and there’s a power struggle to take dominance of our desolate landscape. To what would our raygun-slinger protagonists listen as they fight to survive?
Now that My Chemical Romance's Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys is out, I'm finding more and more questions about it leading people to this site. I figured it would be beneficial to address some of the ones that are asked most frequently in one place for the benefit of all! I hope this helps!

That is, of course, until he stunned us all by chopping his long hair off completely for the music video for “The Ghost of You,” but that is a story for a future blog: "A History of Gerard Way’s Hair (So you People Never Have to Annoyingly Ask Him About it Again)”.
So, how do you obtain Gerard Way’s red-and-black “Taste of Chaos” hairstyle? Here’s how I do it:
Okay, pretend my hair is completely black for now. You must first part off a section at the back of your hair. So that you can re-dye this area more easily…
I try to be very deliberate in the conversations I choose to have and encourage within the MCRmy. It's something I've taken very seriously for a very long time, as anyone who has read this blog is, no doubt, aware.
