Chapter 230: Be My Escape

Pop punk, emo & Christian rock

The mini Christian Rock interlude inside this collection of pop punk and emo is no accident. All the songs here, secular or not, work to make the listener feel like part of something bigger than themselves. “Jesus Of Suburbia” and “Black Parade” are punk operas that invite stadiums full of lost kids to scream along. “Screaming Infidelities” deftly illustrates the paradox that personal details make a lyric more universal. In your mind, you know exactly whose hair is everywhere, while taking comfort in the fact that millions of others are also filling in that blank.
