Concept and Story
The Black Parade is a concept album that tells the story of The Patient, a terminally ill cancer patient who dies and goes to the afterlife. The album is divided into two parts: the first part depicts The Patient's deathbed confession and his journey to the afterlife, while the second part explores his memories, regrets, fears, and fantasies. The album's title refers to the parade that escorts The Patient to his death, which is based on his childhood memory of seeing a parade led by a marching band. The band members assume the roles of The Black Parade, a group of outcasts and misfits who guide The Patient through his transition.
The album's story is influenced by various literary and musical works, such as The Wall by Pink Floyd, Tommy by The Who, American Idiot by Green Day, The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, and The Sandman by Neil Gaiman. The album also draws inspiration from the band members' personal experiences, such as Gerard Way's depression and substance abuse, Mikey Way's anxiety disorder, Frank Iero's car accident, Ray Toro's family issues, and Bob Bryar's burn injury.
