Andy did such a fantastic job with this piece. I would call myself a casual MCR fan, at best, but I could always appreciate their approach and how much they meant to this music scene. Maybe not pioneers, but certainly leaders in the pack in breaking down walls and barriers for "the scene."

Also major props to Mr. Greenwald, himself. A huge advocate for the bands in this scene and I think he is probably the best at articulating why these punk/pop-punk/emo/whatever acts deserve the respect of the masses. Really cool that he is using his platform at Grantland to spread the message that bands from this genre, like MCR, do not fit into the running-eyeliner-and-broken-heart box that uninformed stereotypes try to place them in--they're much more than that.

Didn't like his book about this scene (probably because I wasn't into DC when I read it) but I like his stuff on Grantland.

Oh and other peeps should check out Rember Browne and Chuck Klosterman on that site.
Rembert is the FUNNIEST dude.
