A little moment of cross-genre awesome.

So, I was sitting on my porch swing with my lovely, long haired, metal guitarist of a boyfriend. I had my iPod plugged into a small dock, and it was on shuffle. We were talking, having a good time, when my "Thank You For The Venom" plays. My boyfriend went silent. He turns to me after about 10 seconds and says "What band is this? This is really good." I turned at him and stared blankly. I kinda thought he was putting me on, by his eyes were wide and innocent (which is pretty fuckin' funny, coming from a metalhead). I say "...You really don't know?" He shakes his head, and the vocals come in, and I'm like "Oh, God, he'll know now." Yet, nothing. No gasp of recognition. So I say slowly, "Dillon, this is My Chemical Romance." He took a moment to register that, then said "Oh? Wow. You know, the only difference between this and what we play is the gain on the guitars." I about died from the surge of affection I felt for him in that moment.
