The Black Parade is a good alternative rock, pop/punk album. Emo is (and has always been) something else. I thought those kind of things weren't even labelled as such anymore

Muse is the antithesis of an emo band anyway.

I remember when I used to play Left 4 Dead, I'd play music over voice chat for my friends with similar tastes. One day I was playing Showbiz and a randomer joined. He was kicked after he asked me to "stop playing that emo shit."

That's because people tend to confuse dark alternative rock music with emo. Blame Jimmy Eat World.

People have been using "emo" to describe overtly whiny lyrics especially from male artists for a seriously long time.

And MCR always got way more shit than they deserved. I've also really enjoyed a lot of Way's work in comics, especially considering I haven't really been into superhero stuff since my teens.

Yay, genre wankery.
Yeah true.

I guess it was quite a brief mainstream phenomenon around 2006 or something, but maybe that's an outside interpretation of it.

Well, they were never marketed that way, and let's be grateful about that. On the other hand, I think The Black Parade is a very solid album, more then some may think.
That's the understanding I got from a quick Google search, yeah. As far as I know, a lot of those punk sounds became more poppy around then - Green Day, Blink, skate punk, etc. Even if the version from the mid-2000s is different altogether.

I swear I recall Simon Amstell labelling Muse as pretty emo on Never Mind The Buzzcocks something like 10 years ago, and I remember some artwork pieces around Black Holes being a bit emo-y, but its not the right fit for them I guess.

Tbh I only know 2 songs from The Black Parade - one is the title track, which is brilliant, and one is Teenagers, which is a fun enough pop song. I only know a handful of MCR singles, although what I've heard is a good listen.

I wanted to go to the full weekend at Reading 2011 as I had the impression it would've been cool to see them live - Brian May cameo or not.

Seen Jimmy Eat World live opening for Foo Fighters. Good live band. The Middle and Sweetness are great tunes.

Brilliant record. Hear You Me is definitely in my top ten songs.

Way is a great writer actually. I really dug Umbrella Acadamy. His last album was solid, too.

Welp, it's April 16th. If a new Muse song doesn't come out today, then we need a new theory.

Still, if we're speculating on a release, maybe something before the US Tour?

Yeah...maybe not a very well-thunk one now that I look at it again though...

Oh well, soon can't mean in a long time...right?
