When news came out that Steve Aoki was remixing “Welcome To The Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance, reactions were extremely varied. Some were excited, many were worried… with a track as iconic as this, there’s a lot of room for error and a slim margin for success. According to MCR’s own Gerard Way, however, Aoki knocked this one out of the park, telling Buzzfeed that Steve kept “the intensity” and “purpose” of the song.

In our opinion, there’s a lot about the original that’s been lost in exchange for a more party-centric song that you can sing along to. However, if that’s all you’re looking for, if you’ve been thinking, “You know what, I just wanna rage to Welcome To The Black Parade,” then this is the song for you.
