Queen’s Platinum Selection – Queen (duh)
Ta-Dah – Scissor Sisters
The Black Parade – My Chemical Romance

For some reason this has remained unchanged for a few years now. Which is odd for me.

@tinyfaery we didn’t get to see them play all that long. It was at Lollapalooza (so, we heard maybe, 5 songs). I would definitely be down for seeing them as main act.

@life_after_2012 are you fucking serious…..

dalepetrie's avatar

For me, the top 50 would be hard to narrow down, and put a gun to my head I can probably come up with the top ten, but the top 3…that’s like asking a guy with a lot of kids to pick which 3 he wants to live. I can’t do it…I want to do it, but I can’t.
