To celebrate the 10th anniversary of My Chemical Romance‘s The Black Parade album earlier this year, the band themselves re-released the album, as well as a few bonus tracks thrown in too.

But it looks like they aren’t the only ones marking the occasion, as producer and electronic music artist Steve Aoki has created his own remix of the album’s signature single ‘Welcome to the Black Parade‘.

You can check out his version below:

Speaking of the remix, MCR frontman Gerard Way has said: “You know, when you’ve written a song, sometimes it’s really hard to wrap your brain around what somebody else is doing, or maybe the way that they see the songBut right away, I really loved his remix. And what I love about it is the sounds are phenomenal, and he’s kept the intensity, and I think in some ways, the purpose of the song. So, I loved it right away. I was like, this is really cool. And it’s always fun to hear somebody, especially somebody as talented as Steve, it’s fun to hear the way they see the song. It has that bed of music there, still, that the band was a part of. It has those important melodies, and it has those important root notes. So, you know, I think it does a really great job of capturing the essence of the song and turning it into something new.”
