You Didn’t Know That You Needed This Norteño Remake Of A My Chemical Romance Song

Teenage angst was personified when My Chemical Romance first started to play over the radio waves. Millions of teenagers finally felt seen and heard by the band that brought us hits like “Helena” and “Welcome to the Black Parade.” Get ready to relive that nostalgia with this norteño take on My Chemical Romance’s “I’m Not Okay (I Promise)” with all of the norteño vibes you can handle.

My Chemical Romance’s “I’m Not Okay (I Promise)” as a norteño bop is everything you didn’t know you needed.

Who doesn’t remember this song getting them through their teenage years? It was a band that your family never understood your liking. It was also the only band that could speak directly to your teenage emotions that you still had no control over. My Chemical Romance gave you a chance to scream at the top of your lungs without it being pointless.

The song is instantly transporting them back to altered middle school experiences.

Low key, there might be someone who’s playlists or mix CDs sounded a little like this. How many people had some norteño jams sitting next to their favorite alt-rock bops? The amount of musical range we are capable of is truly something to behold.

The unexpected musical genre mix is leaving a lasting impact on people.

Honestly, it does have a way of sticking around long after you have listened to it. The original also left a strong impression on all of us. There is no way you didn’t start singing the song when you first saw that image. It was one of the most important songs in our young lives.

The 2004 single from the alternative rock band delivered then and this is delivering now.

From the beginning of the song, there were just so many validating emotions pouring out in those first few lines. The song was from the second album from the band called “Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge.” The album went triple platinum in the U.S. There have to be 1,000,000 copies of a CD sold in order for it to make platinum and for every million they add another platinum.

One tweet really says it all.

This is just a small glimmer of hope and celebrating during a crazy time for humanity. It is something that no one realized that we needed until it was released on YouTube. To the creator, thank you for this momentary distraction.

Let’s take a moment to remember the original “I’m Not Okay (I Promise).”

You’re welcome.
