10Teenagers - My Chemical Romance
Because the drugs never work
"They're gonna give you a smirk
Cause they got methods of keeping you clean
They gonna rip up your head
Youre aspirations to shreds"


Yes yes yes. Teenage violence. Did you know Gerard Way wrote this on the train? Yep. He was afraid of the teenagers he saw there. This song rocks. I didnt know it was that short.
Pure My Chemical Romance. It's got everything to make you look up and like it. The best song in a long long time guys. And it's so short too! And by the way, Queen sucks. And so does 'We will, we will rock you'. Duds.
