My Chemical Romance is a band from New Jersey, whom grew up on the same types of music as your parents. Social Distortion, KISS, Queen, David Bowie, Iron Maiden, Twisted Sister; things that were big in the times that they were kids. What makes them "emo" or "goth"? Because they have a particular liking to the color black or morbid objects and themes? Bullshit. That just makes them a tad dark, not "emo fags who whine about how their lives suck". If you say that, you're a dumbshit. Gerard himself, as have the rest of the band, have said numerous times that they aren't emo, nor goth. If anything, if we were to label them, they would be violent pop or violent alternative music.
Gerard and Bert are not dating, nor have they ever. In fact, they aren't even friends anymore. They are just two guys who met while playing and singing the things that they love. What makes them different from every other rock band? If you think that Twisted Sister or KISS are "great rock bands", and think that My Chemical Romance is a "gay, fag-like band" because of the fact that they wear make up--then you're a retard. Ever heard of HAIR METAL
? Or SEEN the make up KISS wears!
Frank is not "gay for Gerard". He's engaged, for heaven's sake! Just because they give slight pecks-of-a-kiss does not make them a gay couple. It's for jokes and giggles, and for the fans because that's what they want. THAT, and it's a free country to be bisexual, so saying, "I would date Gerard," should be okay and not "offensive". But, same as before, with the make up and the hair metal statement; bands like KISS and such played on fans' very emotions like that, too. Watch a live preformance, or something.
Have you ever seen them live? I have. Gerard himself talks about this subject on why people try to label them emo. They're doing what they love to do, play their own music. Who cares if it's dark? "Good rock" and "punk" talks about getting shitfaced and having sex, the government and death. Get over yourselves if you think they're emo. They're not. They're just guys doing what they love.
And, you know what? Listen to the "good" rock bands talk on interviews, and such. Listen to them and their theories about modern day rock bands. I've heard several about My Chemical Romance, and they were all good. GOOD! They don't have a problem with them, so why do you?
And, please. Don't say you want "their babies" or "to rape them" unless you're completely and utterly joking. It gets old, and I'm sure they hear it every day.
My Chemical Romance is not an emo band, but a group of guys doing what they love; playing music. What makes them any different from the bands you grew up on? Not much. Maybe a tad more make up depending on if you were a fan of KISS or Twisted Sister, or Scorpion
, but that's about it. Get over yourselves. If you don't like them, don't listen to them.
"Be Yourself, Don't take anyone's shit and never let them take you alive..." Gerard Way.
"If for one minute you think you're better than a sixteen year old girl in a Green Day t-shirt, you are sorely mistaken. Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band. You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn't know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about." Gerard Way.
A band from Newark, NJ. They have two albums out, the first one being "I brought you my bullets, you brought me your love"(eyeball records) second one being "three cheers for sweet revenge" (reprise). Vox- Gerard Way, Guitar- Ray Toro, Bass- Mikey Way, Drums- Bob (formerly Matt), and last but not least guitar- Frank Iero.
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.
My Chemical Romance is an amazing band.
A really good band that doesn't deserve the crap they get from some people. They are not emo, no matter what people say. They don't deserve all the shitty people screaming over the boys themselves, those people can just go and die for all i care. You love em for their music and if you don't love em, shut the hell up.
Give 'em Hell Kid...
Alright, there's a lot of mudslinging going on but here's the facts. MCR has never claimed to be emo or punk and have it documented. You look at the many many interviews scattered on the internet, every answer they give to what they sound like is "violent pop music", which I can agree with. Their sound is just really good so that's why they want to spread. And those who are somehow threatened by the bands look, those are show costumes. Basically, ever since they started touring, they've been getting darker imagery. When they aren't on camera, or on stage, they look like regular people without make up, I assure you.
Because MCR is really nice, and they have really gotten somewhere in just about 3 to 4 years shows that they've got some talent, and deserve some respect.
A band. Good or bad...that's for you to decide for yourself.
I don't need someone telling me whether My Chemical Romance sucks or that they're amazing. I'll decide for myself, thanks.
A band that has been around for a while but has just recently become popular because of the singles 'I'm Not Okay (I Promise)' and 'Helena'.
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?)
My Chemical Romance is a band that originated in the US.
People hate them because they think they call themselves goth. Gerard Way said himself that he didn't think they were goth. They only got labeled that cause Gerard has an obsession with death. I think thats cool. Their sound is unlike anything I have ever heard.
there will be haters, but there are too many for My Chemical Romance
My Chemical Romance!Hmm?What is there to say except they fucking rock!!!!!I totally love'em!!!And to whoever said that we should listen to the ramones instead,well as a matter of fact I went to their concert wearing a ramones shirt.Well they totally rock,because besides being kick ass rock stars,I saw walking Gerard and Bob walking around before one of their concerts just chillin without bodyguards or any of that crap, and they werent stuck up to smile at me.(Even though I was to shy to go up to them,and i respected the fact that they wanted to keep their presence low key).Well any band that fuckin rocks,and loves their fans as much as they do is a god damn good band!!!I wish them all the luck with their careers and cant wait to go to their next concert!!!-Lizette
"Also, thanks for coming out to the headlining dates. We saw a lot of old friends, as well as meeting new ones. We didn’t expect so many of you to come, so thanks for rocking out, sweating and bleeding with us. Right now is a really exciting time for us, so thank you all for being part of it and being there with us."-MCR
