''The Black Parade'' is the third studio album by American rock band My Chemical Romance. Released in October 23, 2006 through Reprise Records, it was produced by Rob Cavallo, who has also produced albums for Green Day. The album is the first on which Bob Bryar plays drums, as Matt Pelissier played drums for ''Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge'' and ''I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love''. It is a rock opera centering on a dying character with cancer known as "The Patient". The album tells the story of his apparent death, experiences in the afterlife, and subsequent reflection on his life.

Four singles were released from the album: "Welcome to the Black Parade", "Famous Last Words", "I Don't Love You", and "Teenagers". ''The Black Parade'' has received generally favorable reviews. The album debuted at number two on both the ''Billboard'' 200 and the UK Albums Chart and is also certified as platinum by the RIAA, as well as a Platinum certification in the UK and a Gold certificacion in Argentina by the CAPIF. The limited edition boxed set also earned My Chemical Romance a Grammy nomination.
