The band's streams and sales surged in the first full tracking week since the news.
Streams and sales of My Chemical Romance's catalog soared in the first full tracking week since the band's Oct. 31 reunion announcement.
In the week ending Nov. 7, the band bounded by 98% to 22.6 million on-demand U.S. streams according to Nielsen Music. Additionally, its count of equivalent album units jumped by 127% to 16,000 (3,000 of which were album sales), while its song download total grew by 193% to 5,000.
Those metrics allow the band to dot multiple Billboard charts dated Nov. 16, led by its return to the Billboard 200. 2006's The Black Parade, a No. 2-peaking album for the band that November, re-enters at No. 92 with 8,000 units (up 100%). It's the set's first appearance on the tally since March 11, 2017, and its first time in the top 100 since Oct. 22, 2016.
