« Back to the mcr fans!!!! Forum

do you have a favorite underrated song by them?

we've all cried to helena, we've all screamed to i'm not okay, and we've all twitched at the first note of welcome to the black parade, but i'd like to know your favorite underrated mcr song that doesn't get talked about as much. most of my favorite songs by mcr (and bands i like in general) are the underrated ones, so i'm curious!!

my answer: the world is ugly. this song is there for me when no one else is and i adore it so much!! it's criminal that it didn't make it onto an album. shoutout to the interlude from three cheers also, it captures that vibes of the whole album in less than a minute and i cry everytime i hear it it's so beautiful

Burn Bright on the Number Five single night is such a banger. I love the instrumentals so much, it's literally the perfect song to listen to while on a walk late at night.

THE LIGHT BEHIND YOUR EYES!!! It’s universally accepted that it’s a song written for bandit way and it’s honestly so sweet

burn bright and surrender the night both deserve so much more love for sure, they're my favorites off of conventional weapons and two of my top mcr songs

the original lyrics in disenchanted demo are so good that i am suprised they dont get more recognision! there is some but surely not as much as is deserves in my opinion, and the not entirely cleaned out sound makes it even more authentic :)

my fav one has to be ,,If you would hold on and give me a say. You get the hard part, or maybe just a mistake, maybe we'll just shut up and play, we never did mean nothing to you, never did we?"

Literally all of these are so good

Both House of wolves demos, desert song, tomorrow’s money, all the angels, save yourself I’ll hold them back tonigh, and ftwww are all bangers

Also their covers are soooo good desolation row (which is kinda well known) and Astro zombies are really good and are arguably better than the original songs (no hate to misfits though ofc)

astro zombies is AWESOME! i love the original, i love the mcr cover, it's a great song!

not sure if desolation row counts as underrated but it's a bop. also sister to sleep, i still have hope for a studio recording one day :(

I feel like This is the best day ever or Cubicles don't get as much recognition as they should, considering the number of times I've cried to both of them.

I’ve only really started listening to MCR again after about 7 years so i’m not sure how underrated it is but I never hear anyone talking about The Jetset Life is Gonna Kill You! I think it’s an awesome song, it deserves more love!! X)

It is a CRIME that All The Angels did not make it onto the Black Parade.  I cry every time I hear that song.  I think that if it took Teenagers' place, the album would have been even better than it already is.  The patient's lover blaming herself for his death is so genuinely depressing, and slotting after Sleep (when the patient gives up living) and before Disenchanted (when the patient starts to gain hope) would give these songs especially, and the entire rest of the album, so much more depth.

either headfirst for halos or cubicles, though i think most of bullets is underrated anyway? even though i LOVE their more raw/punk-y songs.

I think mine is definitely save yourself, ill hold them back - the lyrics are really important to me because they make me think a lot about my best friend (im the heart attack in black hair dye) - and bury me in black. Idk if that one is technically underrated, I just never see it talked about. I looove listening to it really loud and screaming along w gerard. Pick up the phone bleehhh :3 pick up the phone fucker XD

Save yourself I'll hold them back, the guitar at the beginning of the song and Gerard's voice always get me


Also My way home is through you (criminally underrated)
