It’s a great time to be a music fan, as there are huge releases hitting store shelves that cater to just about every taste out there. Into mind-bending hip-hop? Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday are waiting for you. Down with envelope-pushing dance pop? Ke$ha just dropped Cannibal and Black Eyed Peas are bringing out The Beginning. Do you love Justin Bieber? Justin Beiber’s My Worlds Acoustic is out now. There are also digging-in-the-crate reissues from Bruce Springsteen, Weezer, Nine Inch Nails, Bob Dylan and a host of others, which should make for a fantastically lively holiday shopping season in the music world (something it could use, quite frankly).
But which album among last week’s gigantic releases made the most impact on the readers of the MTV Newsroom Blog? We asked just such a question yesterday and demanded that people vote for the album they bought (or bought first) among the five big ones from last week: Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Justin Bieber’s My Worlds Acoustic, Ke$ha’s Cannibal, Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday and My Chemical Romance’s Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.
The results are in, and though West’s album is expected to debut at the top of the Billboard album chart with over a half million copies sold, the devotion of the MTV Newsroom readers belongs to My Chemical Romance. Danger Days took the top spot with 57 percent of the total vote (after thousands of entries over the past 12 hours). West came in second with 36 percent, with Minaj finishing in third with five percent. The other two entries barely made a dent, but it’s clear that no matter how many albums they end up selling, My Chemical Romance certainly have the most fervent, devoted fan base of anybody putting out an album this holiday season.
My Chemical Romance will return to the UK and Ireland in February for an arena tour.
Dates are as follows:
February 12 London, Wembley Arena 13 Birmingham, LG Arena 15 Glasgow, SECC 16 Dublin, O2 18 Manchester, MEN Arena 19 Nottingham, Trent FM Arena 21 Cardiff, International Arena 22 Newcastle, Metro Radio Arena
Did you know there is a link right beside my photos to REBLOG all of them? It's easier than steal them and post as yours!
I’m sorry, could you tell me which photos or at least not be anonymous? If you’re talking about the scans of the album art, there are click through links. If you’d like them removed, tell me who you are and what photos you’re talking about.
Also, I’m not claiming the photos are mine, there is a note about that on my blog.
I changed the 30 day challenge a little bit to include Danger Days.
