MCR’s Frank Iero Responds To Yankees Using ‘Black Parade’

The New York Yankees have adopted the My Chemical Romance classic “Welcome To The Black Parade” – and no one’s happier than MCR guitarist Frank Iero.

After the Yankees used the song in their Opening Day hype video, Iero called it “a dream come true”.

He wrote “I have such amazing memories of going to games as a kid with my dad and my grandpa… and I can just feel my grandfather smiling down on me, proud as can be, shouting, ‘Let’s go Yanks!’

The song did the trick – the Yankees won Thursday’s home opener 5-0.
