my listening year 2013

Gonna be listening to until I’m sick of it, (my New Years ritual since 2013).

It’s An Idea: a playlist of what the guys have accomplished this year

Listen

One of my most vivid memories of March 22nd, 2013 was talking to someone on tumblr about how scared I was that we were never going to hear from the guys again. It seemed like they could have just cut off all contact and that would be it. Thankfully, I was wrong. Even though they aren’t making music together anymore, they still care. They’re still there for us. They’re all still about My Chem’s message. Like Gerard said: It’s not a band. It’s an idea.
