English composer Andrew Lloyd Webber applauded My Chemical Romance’s song “Welcome To The Black Parade.”
The 72-year-old wrote back to a tweet from 2017 that said “Still fuming that The Black Parade hasn’t been made into some incredible goth musical.” Webber responded with a Tik Tok video of himself and captioned it, “It’s one thing to create an iconic set of chords, it’s another to make one note iconic?” He also tagged My Chemical Romance’s official Twitter.
In the video, Webber plays the intro of his musical Phantom of the Opera and asks, “Musical theatre fans everywhere – what do you think of when you hear this?” He then plays the “iconic” single G-note from the “Welcome To The Black Parade” and says, “And for everybody else – what do you think of when you hear this?”
