I watched this performance of “DESTROYA” a few nights ago and it’s stuck with me for a lot of reasons. First of all, MCR is raging particularly hard here. This performance imo is way better than the album version because it’s raw, driving, and dirty. Second, what a peculiar song choice for a talk show performance, even if it’s late night. One of my favorite things about this band is that they were never afraid to go against the grain – and by doing so, they’ve given me the courage to defy the norm many, many times. But also…there’s an air of finality to this that I feel permeates the entire second half of Danger Days. Listening to it in 2017 makes it so easy to say this sounds like the end. I can’t imagine being a fan in 2010, hearing this, and not expecting this to be their last album.
