"oh my god-cuuutters"
-SHUT UP. If you actually listened to the songs you'd get the points that the band is trying to express instead of listening to pointless fucking songs like "Grillz" and "Do y'chain hang low?" or even "This is why i'm hot." (Now i'm not saying all other music is bad-even Gerard likes Justin Timberlake for example, i'm just making a point here) Those are the songs that fucking suck. My chemical romance expresses feelings of love, joy, yes they do pain too, but it's not:
"I FUCKING HATE MYSELF! AND I HATE YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE!!!-LETS ALL CUT OURSELVES AND RECITE POETRY WHILE WE BLISSFULLY DIE!!!!!"
Okay first of all Gerard started the band after the Sept 11 attacks. IT INFLUENCED HIS LIFE. Thats why he made the song "Skylines and Turnstiles". To the people out there who are like
"oomigod, look at him acting crazy in his videos!!!"
that just shows he's passionate and isn't afraid to show that he doesn't care if the world accepts him or not, but that he'll keep on living anyway the way he wants to! (Famous last words is kinda giving that message a bit) Gerard isn't emo, he shows other emotions besides hatred and anger. The band shops at Wal Mart to get action figures for crying out loud! They sleep on Teen Titan bunks-they can show happiness! Just to set things straight, Gerard dyed his hair blonde for the album-and the preps and haters need to stop worrying about how the band looks and
"omigod that hair doesn't help his complextion!"
-try listening to the music. (some of the music is technically punk and emo (which is the most stupid genre name because it caused sooo many stereotypes) but the band likes to think of themselves as doing Alternative music) Instead of listening to a guy say he's hot over and over and then say
"I'm hot cause i'm fly you ain't cause you not"
try listening to real music with meaning. (By the way that guy who says that is saying a double negative so the song doesn't even make sense) MyChemicalRomance doesn't deserve all this shit from people who never even gave them a chance. The band is just trying to make a difference in the world-big or small. the point is they're trying. MyChemicalRomance's songs are pleasant to the ear and also give a message. "Helena" and "Welcome to the black parade" aren't the only songs they've ever done. The band started out with a different sound and even when they suddenly changed the music was still good. Just for the record, the name "My Chemical Romance" was not just a name thought up when Gerard was in depression-it was inspired by a book called "Ecstacy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance" so there! Yes! Could it be the band can read instead of burn books!? Yes! So stop calling them emo. stop calling them goth. stop saying they suck when all of the main music out there is about sex, hot bods, drugs, and alchohal-cause y'know thats soooooooo cool. Just back off of Mychemicalromance-because i'm sick and tired of hearing about it when they didn't do anything to deserve this bullshit.
These guys are fricking heroes and idols of mine (obviously) and they actually care about their fans. During concerts instead of just singing and going, they interact with the audience to keep them thirsty for more. My Chemical Romance: may they have many more songs to come (And we all know they will cause they frickin rock)
goths: hate everyone
Mychemicalromance: doesn't hate anyone, even when they fired Matt (former member) they didn't just boot him.
emos: want to die
goths: want to kill everyone
Mychemicalromance: want to set good examples through their music
St00pid: My chemical romance is a bunch of emos that cut themselves and scream about death
Billy: No...My Chemical romance is a band with inspirational ideas expressed through poetry and music.
Autumn: And they are in no way emo or goth, despite how they dress! : )
Yes, Mikey and Gerard are brothers. Singles so far: "honey this mirror isn't bing enough for the two of us", "vampires will never hurt you", "I'm not okay, I promise", "Helena".
Please look into them before being asswipes. I'm not okay doesn't do them justice (not that it's not good) but.. if you want to hear a real MCR song listen to something like " Thank you for the venom" or "our lady of sorrows" or something like that to get a better idea of their sound.
I saw them in october (04') and they were amazing.
Their other singles include 'Vampires Will Never Hurt You', 'Honey This Mirror Isn't Big Enough For The Two Of Us,' and 'The Ghost of You' which was leaked on the internet before the release date. A fourth single from their latest album, Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, is planned in the Band's future. As of now, the next single could possibly be 'You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison' or 'Cemetary Drive'.
They currently have 5 members: Mikey Way, Gerard Way, Bob Bryar, Frank Iero, and Ray Toro.
My Chemical Romance has 2 albums out currently (I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love and Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge). A third album is due to be recorded sometime in the winter.
They are currently finishing up headlining the Warped Tour and will begin their first headlining tour of the USA and a couple of UK dates in the fall.
Judging from most interviews the band has participated in, their music is difficult to classify, but can be classified as "Violent Pop-Rock".
If you don't like My Chemical Romance, then just don't listen to them (and if you don't like them, what are you doing looking this up?)
