Glenn Beck Fights the Real Enemy: Glee and My Chemical Romance
Posted by Videoson 04/29/2011 at 2:18 PM
Heathen emo-rockers and musical-theater types alike, your day of reckoning has come. Glenn Beck, Fox News host and noted hater of sunshine and puppies, has condemned My Chemical Romance for their song “Sing,” via its recent appearance on Glee—a show Beck called “brilliant” in its craft and insidiousness. “This is propaganda,” explained Beck after an impassioned read through some of the lyrics. “And it’s an anthem. An anthem saying ‘Join us.’” (In MCR and Glee‘s shared world of promiscuity and valuelessness, we believe is the implication.)
The rant was part of a larger sermon delivered by Beck as a sort of “Kill Your Television”-type screed, as he went on to tell the story of a family who threw out their TV, thus turning all the young’ns into super-ambitious geniuses. “You don’t have to live by the standards that society has set,” said Beck. “You know what is right.” Despite this, Beck also claimed that when it comes to a combined force like Glee and My Chemical Romance, “There is no way to beat this.” (Actually, Glenn, the song only peaked at #58 on the charts, so there are probably at least 57 ways to beat it. Just get The Band Perry or Christina Perri on your side, and you guys should be good to go.)
Anyway, the members of My Chemical Romance seemed amused and a little bit honored at being the recipient of a Beck rant—a rite of passage for purveyors of alternative pop culture, perhaps:
