Here’s How To Recreate Welcome To The Black Parade In Animal Crossing

Make My Chemical Romance’s Welcome To The Black Parade your island tune in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

The release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been an absolute blessing while everyone’s stuck at home right now, not just providing a source of escapism amid the doom and gloom in the world, but also a source of entertainment for rock fans.

And not only have metalheads been wearing some ace Slipknot, Rammstein, and Slayer merch in the game, they’ve also been customising their island tunes according to their favourite music (this rendition of Metallicas Enter Sandman is particularly great).

For those who are after a more theatrical and dramatic entrance when they walk into a building, Reddit user ballato420 has helpfully revealed how you can set your island/town tune to My Chemical Romances epic Welcome To The Black Parade, which, let’s be honest, is probably just about the best option possible.

Check out how to do it below:

While Reddit is always a reliably brilliant source at bringing to light these epic band/Animal Crossing, er, crossovers, YouTuber Raygun Bunny has also attempted something similar – this time reworking The Black Parade’s epic closing track, Famous Last Words, into their island tune:

Excellent work, people.

In other My Chem news, last week the band launched new Desert Screening Device face masks to help those affected by coronavirus. 

We are living in strange times, alienating times, scary times,” they said. These masks were the brainchild of our beloved Lauren Valencia, who died before this madness, not of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the older evil that is cancer. We had these masks made to keep you dust-free in the desert, a show that never happened, never will, a protection that then seemed timeworn. And here we are, with these masks, as though Lauren was prescient or we were unknowingly waiting for the right time…”

You can pick up one of the face masks here.
