It was when i was starting highschool and really depressed and alone that i discovered them.
My brother used to watch a bunch of rock videos on the net and they would be on a shuffle setting so it would be one random rock band after another.

Bro: Hey Layla come watch this vid, it's from Breaking Benjamin!
*Video ends*
Me: Cool, i'm gonna go now... *Gets up and Helena comes on*
Bro: Ew, next.
Me: No wait i wanna see this!
*Video ends*
Me: *Completely speechless*

In a twisted way, my bro introduced me to them and he really regrets it because now whenever MCR comes on i'll dominate the TV and will growl and hiss at whoever tries to change it. >.>

Helena.

DAY AFTER DAY PLAYING IT LOUDLY UNTIL MY FAMILY GOT SUPER PISSED. =D

Well actually, that was what got me really into them to the point where I had to get their CD.

The song that made me remember them and think "hey, these guys are keen, I should download some stuff of theirs" was The Ghost Of You.

i was at my friend's house and we were watching mtv, and helena came on. i was like, "who are these guys? they are pretty awesome!" and she was like, " oh, really? i thought they were kinda creepy... especially when that one guy looks at the coffin through the window..." i was like, "yeah, but they're awesome!"
after that i checked 'em out on iTunes and bought some songs and loved it.
then i showed my other friend helena and she's obsessed now.. of course, that was like, 2 years ago...

I was a bit more airheaded back then, but I saw I'm Not Okay & Helena on MTV and just thought they were really cool, but didn;t really get into them until..the week Welcome to the Black Parade (Radio Edit) was on iTunes.

Helena.
I was freaked out.
I was awake because I was like, 10 and I had watched Nightmare On Elm Street, and I was creeped out & couldn't sleep and I was watching MTV and they actually played it, and I was speechless. I loved them...I couldn't say anything though because if I did, I was afraid Freddie would find me...
scary.

I'm not afraid to admit it...it was "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)"

I'm actually a little shocked that ever post here isn't "I'm not Okay" there' a lot of "Helena" Maybe because it was the first video they actually played on MTV....

PS....I'm not attacking anyone...I was just sayin' ^_^
