My Chemical Romance, in simple words, is one of those degrading, whiny, semi-conscious bands that have broken into the American mainstream in an unexpected manner. People who ingest the ‘music’ that this very overrated, and yet under talented band makes are either misguided or completely daft.
The other day, I attempted to watch a My Chemical Romance music video. Good God. These amateurs make utterly dreadful music. As I watched, it disintegrated some of my valuable brain cells, and probably lowered my IQ by a minimum of 10 points. Seemingly, I lived, only to witness and hear half of the repulsive video.
Now, a hardcore My Chemical Romance fan, fueled by angst might pop out of nowhere and flare, “Shut the hell up, My Chemical Romance is real music fool!’’
Real music? You are mentally incapable of comprehending that My Chemical Romance is deceiving you by representing fashion through sound waves. Yet again, how is it real music when the drummer who is non-proficient, is banging away monotonously on the drums, and the guitarist scrubbing away deviously on his guitar which is out of tune? And yet again, the so-called infamous ‘vocalist’ Gerard Way, attempting to whine out meaningless trash fixated on that musical rubbish, which is weak and tasteless.
How can you even admire such gibberish? Gerard Way sounds as if he was impregnated by an incubus, and is failing at breath, trying to give birth to a demon baby.
Don’t you get it? These imbeciles are attempting to get placed on a pedestal and paid millions and millions of dollars, utilizing their horrible trash. Their angst instigated nature is encouraged by the mainstream MTV, where they can relieve their heinous videos in order to get drowned in a pool of cash. You have to understand that these ugly music videos are nothing but marketing tools intended to promote the sale of music recordings.
My Chemical Romance is nowhere near art. Their ‘music’ can be compared to someone who is spilling raw, viscous paint on a canvas. Now let me give you an example, regarding this. Let us take a real musician, Robert Fripp for instance and the amateur Gerard Way, and tell them to design a statue of a man. Robert Fripp has sculpted a statue, which has a very complex structure, with different kinds of moods and colours, pertaining a very concise texture, and is worth enjoying looking at. Gerard way, on the other hand, who has no knowledge of this, has made a statue with no basic structure or texture at all. Evidently, the deformed statue that he has attempted to make will collapse. If you turn this into music, you will see the differences.
My Chemical Romance concentrates on their image, more than they could ever dream of focusing on their music. The babbling of teenage girls concerning the ‘sexiness’ of Gerard Way, is rather disturbing. Let’s face it, just look at him! His grotesque image is imprinted upon my brain. It’s really hard to believe that these immature teenagers find him attractive, and are willing to mutilate their body parts for him.
These nitwits, who dress silly, are a threat to actual music, any individual not deprived of average understanding of basic logic, will comprehend this.
The conclusion? Maybe you could find yourself some real bands and then devote your life to them, instead of wasting your valuable time and your unworthy life listening to such trash.
My Chemical Romance fan: Oh!!111!! McR is teh godz!!!
Intelligent person: Shut up, you idiot.
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
