Welcome to the Black Parade...

When I was a young boy, My father took me into the city To see a marching band. He said, "Son when you grow up, will you be the saviour of the broken, The beaten and the damned?" He said "Will you defeat them, your demons, and all the non believers, the plans that they have made?" Because one day I leave you, A phantom to lead you in the summer, To join the black parade."

'The Black Parade' is the very basic premise of the record, which is when you die, I'd like to think that death comes for you however you want," Way said. "And I feel that it's your strongest memory, either from childhood or adulthood, and for this particular character in this record, his strongest memory is of being a child and his father is taking him to this parade. So when death comes for him, it comes in the form of a black parade."

Seems like these guys, as much as I disliked them before, actually have a cool sounding idea for an album, have to wait and see when the album finally drops though.
Besides, Green Day did it well with American Idiot, as did The Great Pink Floyd (yes I am biased that Pink Floyd is the Greatest Rock Band ever!) with The Wall.
