As "Blade Runner", Twitter is looking forward to seeing the present align with the future the past has the same momentum in the present. Rage Against the Machine and My Chemical Romance have both announced, or hinted at, reunion shows. At a time when EDM and casual hip-hop have taken over, the world could use a small dose of hardcore rock, goth (but certainly not emo).
The black parade of My Chemical Romance arrives in Los Angeles
The ladies take out your chains, guys, take out your mascara, MCR comes to town. Directed by Gerard Way, the rock band of the genre most disputed, announced on December 20 a reunion show entitled "Return" at Shrine Expo Hall.
Like ghosts forever …

MCR announced its split in 2013, issuing a statement saying, "As with all good things, it's time to end the situation." Butler would then create the comic series "The Umbrella Academy", which would eventually become a series of Netflix (which would give the entertainment giant an improbable boost as wars unfold in every possible way).
Fortunately for fans of My Chemical Romance, sometimes beautiful things come back, and sometimes Twitter reacts hilariously. From a moment of Oprah's shock spirit:

Maybe nothing is more appropriate than this video of a teenager shouting the words of MCR in a graveyard:

And, of course, all the stores selling mascara in Los Angeles had been warned:

Rabies against the machine makes one for the 'Gram
Meanwhile, Rage Against the Machine shows that they are not just relics of the past. Their official Instagram account has materialized from nowhere last night.
With only one comment encrypted on a photo of the Chilean events and some dates below, the group lost the spirit on the Internet. In just 13 hours, the post already has 40,000 "I love". Two of the dates in Indio, California, align with those of Coachella in 2020.

After his separation in 2000, Rage released the cover album "Renegades" in 2000 and recorded their last show "Live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium" in 2003.
Since the break, singer Zack De La Rocha has collaborated with Blackalicious artists at Run the Jewels to DJ Shadow. He also formed his own band with Mars volta drummer, Jon Theodore. Meanwhile, lead guitarist Tom Morello has been busy with his own folkloric project and his partnership with the late Chris Cornell for Audioslave.

Given their post-breakup activity, the group should not be too rusty. Twitter fans also seem ready to leave.

November 1, 2019 will go down in history as the day when Rage fans, MCR fans and Blade Runners fans could come together and rejoice.
The grandparents will tell their children where they were that day and most of them will say "Twitter".
