When I did my intern at KLCC, that was the first time that I spend that much of time in KL. Tough residing in KL, I spent majority of my time at college. Only during the weekends or semester break will I go back to my family at KL.
Since spending that much of time at home, what do losers like us do? We spend countless hour in front of PC downloading stuff.
One of the stuff that I downloaded was My Chemical Romance second studio album.
I simply downloaded the album after browsing through MTV Live section of MTV.com website.
The opening track of that album was simply awesome. The opening track, “Helena” where Gerard Way simply belts out chords I’ve never heard off got me hooked to this album.
So, this album was my companion through the horrific KL traffic. Sometimes, I simply chosed the “longer, jammer” route simply to listen to more of My Chemical Romance. I tought was cool back then, Hitz FM has not started to play songs from My Chemical Romance yet. Cool listening to songs that nobody heard before, so I thought 😀
One fine day, on my numerous trip to Kuching, many months later, I was waiting for one of my ultra brother to pick me up for our daily excursion. While waiting I overheard the boy next door talking to his friend.
“Eh ko ada album MCR kah?”
“Ada, aku baruk kak burn.”
Then to my shock, there were playing songs that was my companion during my drive to and from the office.
MCR?!!? What the fish !!?!
That sounded so MLTR. Arghh demit !!
Soon after that, the emo scene hit KL. You can see boys and girls clad in black clothing carrying umbrella around Sungai Wang and their favourite music, yes ladies and gentlemen you guess it right, My Chemical Romance. That is the moment I decided to stop listening to My Chemical Romance.
When My Black Parade hit the market, I decided to ignore it. You don’t want to be labeled to be in the same group of those boys who wear black net socks on their arms that’s for sure.
The emo scene has slowed down here in KL. Nowadays boys and girls from Sungai Wang dressed the Indie way or what I like to call, Fashion Kami.
After wathing this, I can start to rekindle my fondness to My Chemical Romance.
