Musical and lyrical themes[edit]

The Black Parade
The Black Parade
as shown in the music video to the song "Welcome to the Black Parade".

The Black Parade
The Black Parade
is a rock opera centering around the character of "The Patient". It is about his passage out of life and the memories he has of his life. "The Patient" dies and death comes for him in the form of a parade.[7][8][5] This is based upon Gerard Way's notion of death appearing to a person in the form of their fondest memory, in this case seeing a parade as a child.[5] The album also saw the creation of the alter-ego band, The Black Parade. My Chemical Romance
My Chemical Romance
would perform the album live in costume as the Black Parade up until October 7, 2007 Mexico
Mexico
City performance.[9][10] On stage, the band would don black marching uniforms similar to those worn by The Beatles
The Beatles
for the album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967). The live performance was theatrical, with Gerard Way
Gerard Way
assuming the character of a member of The Black Parade. Way's mannerisms were compared to Bob Geldof
Bob Geldof
in his performance of the lead character in the movie adaption of Pink Floyd's The Wall
The Wall
(1979). His performance was also compared to David Bowie's performance of Ziggy Stardust and Freddie Mercury's stage presence.[10] There are also similarities to Alice Cooper
Alice Cooper
in his "Welcome to My Nightmare" period. The video for "Welcome to the Black Parade", directed by Sam Bayer, portrays the events of the entire story, starring all its characters, including Mother War, who is primarily involved in the song "Mama". Gerard Way
Gerard Way
has described this video as "The definitive video for the record" and one that "summed up the album." The album also has strong influences from 1970s classic rock,[7][11][12][13] glam rock,[11][14] pop music,[7][15] punk rock[7] and gothic rock.[14] The Black Parade
The Black Parade
has been described as alternative rock,[7][16] emo,[7][17][18][19] pop punk,[20][8][21] post-hardcore,[22] and punk rock.[23] Lead singer Gerard Way
Gerard Way
has cited the bands Queen and Pink Floyd
Pink Floyd
as major influences on the album.[24] Similarities have been noted between the guitar orchestration in "Welcome to the Black Parade", and the arrangements of Queen. Additionally, Pink Floyd's The Wall
The Wall
and David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972) are noted as major influences for the album, which is especially evident when comparing the album's opening track, "The End.", to the first tracks on The Wall, "In the Flesh?", and on Ziggy Stardust, "Five Years".[25] Gerard Way
Gerard Way
has also stated that one of their biggest influences were The Smashing Pumpkins, often giving them credit for their thematic videos.[26] "The intention was to make something that was classic, something timeless," explained guitarist Ray Toro. "Something that 20 or 30 years from now, parents could play for their kids and say, 'This is what I was listening to when I was your age. Check it out, it’s still cool.'" We wanted to make a record you could pass down. There’s a lot of music out now that doesn’t feel like that."[27] Looking back at the creation of the album, guitarist Frank Iero
Frank Iero
was blasé about criticism[clarify] the band received for this decidedly "non-scene" record. "When we did Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, we didn't fit in," he said. "There was a little less screaming and a little more melody, but it was still us. Never was it a case of, 'Don't put that melody there because Hardcore Chuck, who took me to my first show at Fairfield American Legion Hall, is really going to be bummed at me.' I don’t care: If I had to work at McDonald's for the rest of my life to play shows and ride in a van on tour? I've done it. I'll do it again."[27] Release and promotion[edit] On July 31, 2006, The Black Parade
The Black Parade
was announced for release.[28] In August, the band was filming a music video in Los Angeles[29] for "Famous Last Words". During filming, Way tore his ankle ligaments and Bryar suffered burns on his leg.[30] Bryar was hospitalized for a period of time, which resulted in the band cancelling two shows.[31] On August 25, the band released a video of a pre-recorded press conference, during which they revealed a number of details about the album, such as song titles and touring information.[32] On August 31, the band performed at the MTV Video Music Awards preshow in New York, debuting the then new song "Welcome to the Black Parade" during their performance.[33] Two days later, the song was made available for streaming via the band's Myspace
Myspace
account.[29] On September 12, the album's artwork and track listing was revealed.[34] The music video for "Welcome to the Black Parade" was released on September 28.[35] On October 21, the band was the musical guest on an episode of Saturday Night Live, where they performed "Welcome to the Black Parade" and "Cancer".[36] The Black Parade
The Black Parade
was made available for streaming on October 19,[37] and was released through Reprise on October 24.[28] In March 2007, the band filmed another music video in Los Angeles,[38] this time for "Teenagers". Versions[edit]

Limited edition box set.

Several special editions of The Black Parade
The Black Parade
were released. One bears white text on a black background, and the second has black text on a white background. A third version has the normal booklet reversed, showing the picture of the parade drawn and painted by comic artist James Jean. Inside the booklet there are also lyrics, a photo of the band, and characters from the album. A limited edition of the album was released the same time as the original release. It contains the same track listing as the original release but it is sold in a box wrapped in black velveteen material. It also contains a 64-page book which includes concept art by Gerard Way and making of the album notes by the band.[39] The version of The Black Parade
The Black Parade
that was released in Japan contains different content than the other regular editions. It contains 14 tracks, but the 14th track is the song "Heaven Help Us" (which was released with the single version of "Welcome to the Black Parade"), instead of the song "Blood". The Japanese version is also an Enhanced CD and includes the music video of "Welcome to the Black Parade".[40] On December 11, 2007, The Black Parade
The Black Parade
was released as a vinyl LP, a first for the band. Two versions were released, the regular edition and the special edition. Both editions contain two records. The first record of both editions has tracks one to four on the A-side and five to seven the B-side. The second record has tracks eight to ten on the A-side and 11 to 13 on the B-side. The special edition includes the hidden track, "Blood," while the regular edition does not. The special edition comes in a slip-case box with two 15-page books. 2,500 copies were made of the special edition, while 3,000 copies of the regular vinyl edition were made.[41] On February 10, 2015, the album was repressed on vinyl as a 2-LP set. The D side of the album includes an engraved picture of the cover of artwork.[42] 10th anniversary reissue[edit] Main article: The Black Parade/Living with Ghosts On July 20, 2016, the band posted on their official Twitter

pages a video with the piano intro from "Welcome to the Black Parade", ending with a cryptic date, "9/23/16".[43][44] The video was also published on the band's YouTube
YouTube
channel with the video titled "MCRX".[45] This led to numerous rumors and reports on the band's possible reunion until it was revealed to be a reissue of The Black Parade with unreleased demos.[46][47][48] The reissue, titled The Black Parade/Living with Ghosts, includes 11 demos and live tracks. Two months before its release, an early version of "Welcome to the Black Parade", titled "The Five of Us Are Dying", was made available for streaming.[49] Critical reception[edit]

At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 79, based on 24 professional critic reviews, which indicates "generally favorable reviews".[50] Dan Martin from NME
NME
compared the album to Green Day's American Idiot, positing that "it's a piece of work that will challenge every preconception you ever had about the people who made it."[5] Tim Karan of Alternative Press called The Black Parade "MCR's whole raison d'etre rolled up into one mega-decibel calling card". Ed Thompson of IGN
IGN
stated, " The Black Parade
The Black Parade
is a rock and roll gem that celebrates everything that was over the top about the 1970s rock scene."[13] David Fricke of Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
praised the classic rock feel of the album.[6] Entertainment Weekly
Entertainment Weekly
stated that "On their third studio album, a musical H-bomb of an effort, the Jersey quintet combine the rock-opera pomp of Queen with the darker, dirtier tones of their screamo past: Call it a Bro-hemian Rhapsody. Even without its broad concept — a dying cancer patient seeks revenge and redemption — Parade stands as one of the most cohesive, engaging rock records of 2006."[52] Robert Christgau
Robert Christgau
gave the album a two-star honorable mention () and said, "In prog, a good sense of humor means so much."[60] The album was not without its share of criticism, and was panned by such publications as The Observer and Aversion. Stated Jamie Hodgson of The Observer, "...it reeks of a band with ideas above its station."[61] Matt Schild of Aversion originally refused to review the album, simply writing the word "lame" in lieu of an actual review. Bowing to editorial pressure, he later posted a review listing specific aspects of the album before denouncing them as "lame".[62] Theon Weber of Stylus praised the album's use of Queen influences, but went on to summarize the album as "...a goofy record of bubblegum punk, with Queen lapping at its edges and enough good tracks to justify the smattering of empty screamfests."[8] Accolades[edit] Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
went on to rank The Black Parade
The Black Parade
#20 in its "Top 50 Albums of 2006" feature.[63] Spin magazine named it the 5th best album of 2006.[64] Wizard magazine praised the album in their "Best of 2006" issue, declaring it "an instant classic."[65] IGN

named it one of the best rock albums of the last decade.[66] Entertainment Weekly

ranked the album as the third best record of the year, being surpassed only by Gnarls Barkley
