They are simply inspirational, and they'll be missed.
I love MCR so much. I'm sad they broke up.
My Chemical Romance is inspirational.

MCR is a band from Newark, NJ. They are not emo! The band members even said so. For all you haters you can suck a cow! If you don't like them then go listen to some shit by 50 cent or something. They have some really good music...Not only are the songs 'I'm not okay', 'helena', 'honey this mirror..' and 'vampires will never hurt you' just MCR singles..they show what the band is all about. Now some of the songs are more intense and tell more about the band its self..listen to 'Thank you for the Venom.' They have 2 albums and 1 dvd out.
Gerard Way, Mikey Way, Frankie Iero, Ray Toro, and Bob Bryar are all members of My Chemical Romance

An awesome band that features five amazing and talented guys: Gerard way, Mikey way, Frank iero, Ray Toro, and Bob Bryar.
They're an alternative rock band, but is also considered to be an emo band. Which is not true since most people consider the term emo as a trend. They are NOT emo for they even said so in an interview. THey are themselves and no one should label them emo.
They're awesome and you should seriously check them out sometimes since their music really speaks the truth.

The world can't always be about lovey dovey stuff as many people write today. it's also about the cruel things that's happening in daily lives and they speak the truth and real emotions that you feel once in your life
Person1: My chemical romance sure rocks
Person2: Of course
Person1: Their songs are really inspirational
Person2: And emotional i mean if more people stop and try to listen to their music maybe they won't consider them as freaks
Person1: They're not freaks it's just many people judge on looks these days
Person2: Definantly that's where the word "cliques" and "labels" were formed.
Person1: Yup they should definantly try to listen to Helena that's a very beautiful song
Person2: No disenchanted
Person1 and Person2: NO THANKS FOR THE VENOM
Person1: Oh man i can't even pick they just make such good songs
Person2: Yup in my opinion i think it's better than those trash lame disney corporations come up with. I mean seriously "I wanna get back get back with you" I mean ever heard of get over it he was probably a jerk more fish in the sea.
Person1: Hmm what about "Burning up"
i mean it starts out with "I"m hot" which is sorta self absorbed if you ask me.
Person2: Yup! But that's the jonas brothers i mean how long do you think it took kevin to get those ugly sideburns or joe to grow out a bushy eyebrows.
Person1: Exactly i mean my chemical romance is really such an amazing band.
Person2: THey inspired me so much.
Meanperson: I think they're stupid
Person1: Gasp how come?
Meanperson: Well i mean the lyrics is shit you can't even understand it
Person2: That's because it's similar to poetry you have to dig deep to find the meaning you can't just expect it to be like those regular songs that have simple lyrics that even a 3 year old can understand.
Person2: Yup MCR ROCKS! AND FUCK ALL YOU HATERS!

My Chemical Romance are a band from NJ. I;m not going to attempt to give them a specific genre, because they have many influences. Guitar wise they use a mixture of punk and metal riffs, mainly due to the bands love of bands like the Misfits, and metal bands such as iron Maiden. Lyrically, Gerard Way writes in a style similar to that of Morrisey, using metaphors and story-telling to get across his point.

In reading the other definitions here, I was quite angered by the many comments about the band slitting their wrists, or encouraging their fans to do so, because one of the most important messages the band gives out is that self-harm is not acceptable. "No-one should ever feel the need to hurt themselves, because the rest of the world hurts you badly enough." They hate the idea of self-harm, and will always encourage their fans to get some help. Regardless of whether or not you personally like the music, people should never insult a band that to someone else could mean so much, and could have helped someone else so much. I don't like Slayer, to me slayer just sounds like noise, but I won't insult them because to someone they could have been a great help, could inspire them, or could just mean a lot to someone.
Band members are Gerard Way, Frank Iero, Mikey Way, Ray Toro, and Bob Bryar. Yes, they are all quite good looking, but that isn't what the music is about, and they get quite uncomfortable about the attention to their looks.
They're very nice guys, I hung out without them quite a bit a few weeks ago, and none of them once mentioned a wish to slit their wrists, mainly they just took the mickey out of each other, and tried to set me on fire by dropping their cigarettes on my shoes.
Whilst all of them hate homophobia, and make a point of standing up for anti-prejudiced feelings, none of them are actually gay, just open-minded people, who stand up for others who can't stand up for themselves.
They aren't emo, please research genres and learn correct definitions before you label bands as emo.
"He said "Son when, you grow up, will you be, the savior of the broken, the beaten and the damned."

He said "will you defeat them, your demons and all the non-believers, the plans they have made.""

"We'll Carry on
Though your dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And in my heart I cant contain it
The anthem wont explain it."

"Defiant to the end, we hear the call"

My Chemical Romance-Not exactly depressing lyrics in my opinion.

Welcome to the Black Parade-Possibly the most uplifting song I've heard.

Great band, not punk, not emo, not goth, not pop. Please stop saying how much you hate "those emo losers" because if you do you don't actually listen/know MCR.
Punk elitist: I hate MCR because they're emo

Emo fuck: OMGZ!!11!!!!oneone I LUV MCR BECAUSE GERARD SHARES MY PAIN AND HATE FOR MYSELF!!!!111

Me: Uh, I really like them. Good music. End of story.

person 1: Hey have you herd Of My chemical romance?

A (in my opinion) very talented group of guys who despise the word 'emo'. The amazing band consists of Ray Toro - lead guitar, Frank Iero - rhythm guitar, Mikey Way - bass, Bob Bryar - drums, & the wonderful Gerard Way - vocals.

I am aware that a lot of you who read this will be like 'oh its an emo kid' or 'they're so emo' BUT. They're not emo, if you actually listen to the lyrics, they are an ANTI suicide band. For example, the song Famous Last Words states: "I am not afraid to keep on living, I am not afraid to walk this word alone." & So on & so forth.

My Chemical Romance has 3 studio albums - I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love; Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge; & The Black Parade. 2 Live CD/DVDS - Life On The Murder Scene & The Black Parade Is Dead!

Their most popular songs are Helena, I'm Not Okay (I Promise), Welcome to the Black Parade, Teenagers, & Famous Last Words.
I personally did not hear all of their songs on the radio, I found them, so there may have been more mainstream songs, I don't know.

MCR (as they are often abbreviated) formed in the time of 9/11. Gerard was on his way to work in NY & saw the bodies falling/jumping out of the building. At that point he though what am I doing with my life?
He decided to call up some old friends & formed the band. The original drummer, Matt Pelissier, was in the band when it formed, obviously. He later was fired because of his poor performance & lack of devotion to the band.

As for where the name came from, Mikey & Gerard were working at Barnes & Noble. Mikey saw the words 5 Tales of Chemical Romance on the back or inside of a book (whose author I forget). When he joined the band, he thought he should add My to it to give it a twist. From then on, they were known as MCR, My Chem, & My Chemical Romance of course.

Future plans - 2009: They recently filmed a music video for their cover of Bob Dylan's 'Desolation Row'. MCR recorded this song for the movie 'The Watchmen', which will be in theaters in March. My Chem is also set to record an album sometime this year, claimed to be 'early 2009'.

In conclusion, a great band... in my opinion.
Normal 11 year old: OMGOMGOMG DON'T YOU LOVE MILEY CYRUS!!!!!!!!!


Me - logical 11 year old: Bleh, disgusting. My Chemical Romance for the win!

Normal 11 year old: Hu dat?!!!!??!!!!

Me: -sighs-
