Hannah Bond vs Daily Mail

for those of you who do not know, Hannah Bond was a 13 year old girl who hanged herself and The Daily Mail accused MCR..for her being "emo" well...i read the original article last year and im not sure why but i decided to look for it again and i found a second article. and this one as the first one did really pissed me off. this is the line that made me go this far and write this blog ""Their lyrics seem to be associated with depression and self-harm, and I feel shock when I listen to them," says her mother."
Ok first, there lyrics arent inferring self harm AT ALL! the daily mail really pisses me off the way they bash MCR. In their first article they said she had been listening to them for 2 weeks so how the hell can they say that theyre the reason she did that. The Daily Mail ALSO referred to MCR as "'EMO 'SUICIDE CULT' ROCK BAND"
"The Black Parade is a nickname for the place where Emo fans believe they will go when they die" They wrote. Ok, 1) I remember somewhere Gerard specifically saying "The Black Parade is a concept of what you think will happen when you die, in this case, the patient envisioned his cherished memory of going to a parade as a young boy with his father and 2)even if anyone does find it depressing, think about everything the band had gone through when they were making it. MCR was in a dark, depressing place. They were staying at 'The Paramour' which in the special edition Black Parade box in the booklet, they describe living there, and their description showed how depressed they were. I apologize for my rant. but i cant keep it bottled up. i am willing to post the links to the articles for those who dont know the story or you can just search "Hannah Bond" and look for links to the daily mail's website. I am not saying anything bad against Hannah. my anger and rage is just toward the daily mail. Gerard also had a response to the articles: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWSFiC3FVoE, MCR to this day does not like talking about the whole incident...
