Holy. Fucking. Shit.

Yesterday, My Chemical Romance announced that they’d be reuniting after over seven years spent apart, and people went NUTS! They’re obviously a seminal band of the pop punk/emo genre, and deserved all the fanfare they received over this reunion, but that announcement just didn’t do a ton for me. Don’t get me wrong, ‘The Black Parade’ is one of my favorite records of all time; I just don’t really like anything else they’ve ever done. Sure, there’s a few tracks off ‘Three Cheers’ I dig, and maybe two or three from the post-Black Parade era, but not enough to get my blood pumping for an MCR reunion. They’re more of a wait-and-see deal for me.

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE ON THE OTHER HAND…

I think the entirety of Seventh Ave could hear my reaction when Colby (one of our tech guys) walked over and broke the news to me. I was, and still am, ECSTATIC.

Rage is one of my favorite rock n’ roll bands ever. Nobody goes harder. Nobody makes crowds go harder. Nobody shreds like Tom. Nobody slams like Brad. Nobody grooves like Tim. Nobody sings and raps like Zack. Rage Against The Machine is a once-in-a-lifetime musical act who are often imitated/never duplicated, and I’m so fucking glad to have them back, even if only for a couple of shows. I assume they’ll go the Guns N Roses reunion route though, where they headline Coachella, do a couple gigs to get their feet under them, and then tour their fucking dicks off.

When Woodstock 50 looked like it was happening this year, I wrote a blog where I basically begged them to reunite for that gig, but never truly expected it to happen. Thought it was a pipe dream. I guess fucking not, though! I mean – the current climate we’re in certainly makes this make sense, but this is just mind blowing, man.

Oasis, you cunts are next.

Here’s a few clips to remind you who Rage Against The Machine are…
