"The Black Parade" To Become A Musical? Plus, U2 Best Of Tracks Announced

My Chemical Romance - Black Parade Musical
I don't want to cover this band, I don't. But when I read that they are going to make a musical out of Welcome To The Black Parade, well, I have to say something. Concept albums get a bad rap. And I think that is generally because most popular bands are mediocre as artists. Yeah, they can play instruments, but they aren't really making something with real force behind it. And when a half-wit wants to drag it out into a multimedia foray, well, we have a problem.

'Sunday Bloody Sunday'
'Walk On'
'Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own'

I'm not really into my chemical romance, but i like that song, the black parade. i'm curious as to how they're gonna make it a musical. it's like the Queen musical, the one with bohemian rhapsody, i think they're gonna try to do the same...
