After a two-year pandemic delay, the U.S. leg of My Chemical Romance's reunion tour finally kicked off over the weekend in Oklahoma City. In addition to classics "Welcome to the Black Parade," "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)" and "Teenagers," the set list featured a number of deep cuts.

According to Consequence's recap, Gerard Way and company dug up the songs "Bury Me in Black" and "This Is the Best Day Ever" during the show, which MCR hadn't played live since 2003 and 2005, respectively.

"Bury Me in Black" is a non-album track that was released as a demo on the B-side of the "I'm Not Okay" single, while "This Is The Best Day Ever" is a cut of My Chem's 2002 debut album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love.

Also on the set list was the new song "Foundations of Decay," which MCR premiered earlier this year ahead of their U.K. tour.

The My Chemical Romance reunion tour continues Tuesday in Nashville.
