You’re sat at your desk writing an e-mail to Bob about something you don’t understand, and you’re wondering whether Sandra from accounts has “accidentally” taken your favourite mug again. When suddenly, as if the Myspace angels themselves have wanted this, the first few notes of “The Black Parade” infiltrate the office and you’re standing up, slowly placing your hand over your heart, pledging allegiance to the emo kings of yesteryear.
Admit it, you miss the emo days, when all you had to worry about was whether your Myspace Top 8 were in the right order, if your fringe was the right length and pattern (ah, leopard print), and if your eyeliner was thicker than [[Stereo.Kid]]’s.
It’s unlikely that your boss would appreciate you turning up to work in your Simple Plan hoodie and eyeliner tears insisting that everyone calls you Xx!!Savage::Vengence!!xX because that’s the name that made you Myspace famous. Let’s face it: It won’t go down well.
Instead, release your inner emo with a huge RAWR! and this playlist of the greatest anthems that made your teenage years.
