omg mcr times

I was in my parents’ basement with a very small practice amp, and my Fender guitar. That’s when I wrote “Skylines and Turnstiles” and some of the earlier material. I actually wrote “Fashion Statment” too at that time, though we didn’t actually use it until Revenge. I wrote those songs sitting my pyjamas or underwear with a tiny amp.
