My Chemical Romance fans far and wide seem to have been indulging in a blissful throwback this week. Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge has entered the Billboard 200 chart sixteen years after its release.
The landmark emo odyssey has re-entered the charts on more than one occasion in years past. Back in March 2019, it surfaced at Number 191 on the Billboard 200. This re-entry fell close to March 22nd — the fateful day that the band announced their break up in 2013.

It’s not clear what caused the re-rock up this time around. We’re mere weeks away from the anniversary of the band announcing their return – perhaps the celebrations have begun early?
Whilst we’re opting for a more celebratory theory, it has been speculated that fans are, collectively, going through it.
Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge is back in the Billboard 200 and I just want to know, is everyone okay?
10 months of pandemic and everyone’s in their feelings.

After being promised a My Chemical Romance tour, only to be cucked by coronavirus, I can say with full certainty that I’m definitely not okay.
My Chemical Romance recently announced that they would be reissuing three of their cult albums on vinyl in brand-new colourways. Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, The Black Parade and Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys.
