My Chemical Romance: Interview with Frank Iero

Liza Minnelli and My Chemical Romance are two great tastes that don’t seem to taste great together. In fact, they’re two distinct musical sounds that one would think would repel one another. But on MCR’s new album, The Black Parade, the follow up to their platinum breakthrough, Three Cheers

Fall Out Boy: Interview with Pete Wentz

Despite the fact that millions of teenaged girls wish to be the friction in his jeans, Fall Out Boy bassist and hottie Pete Wentz still lives at home with his parents. While most 26-year-olds have long moved out, it makes sense that Wentz still resides at his parents’ crib. He’s …
