A band that is often misrepresented as

A. An Emo band
B. Shitty losers.

In truth, My Chemical Romance is an alternative band from the Belleville/Kearny area of New Jersey. They are inspired by bands such as Iron Maiden Anthrax Bouncing Souls and their first cd was produced by Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly. Although My Chemical Romance (often abbreviated as MCR)is becoming mainstream and being attacked by lame teenies who only like MCR because they think Gerard or Frank are hot, they still perservere and have performed with Punk forefathers Green Day, Alkaline Trio, Reggie and the Full Effect, Avenged Sevenfold, and The Used. Many people consider their fans "Emo fags." In truth, Gerard described their music as "Death Rock." This doesn't necesarilly mean he's a goth. People should stop slinging labels and take the time to listen to their music before they judge.
My Chemical Romance is a great band that doesn't fit in a particular genre.

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.

An Alt. Rock/Post hardcore band from New Jersey. Often abreviated to 'mcr' or 'My chem.' Cops a lot of flak for no paticular reason. Constantly labled Goth, emo etc. just because a few of the band members have Black hair and wear small amounts of makeup. They aren't the same as Simple Plan or Good Charlette who bitch about how crap their lives are. Their songs have moving, almost poetic lyrics.
Most haters base their opinions entirely on 'I'm not okay' which, whilst not a bad song, is definetly not their best. Check out something more like 'Thank you for the venom' or 'Headfirst for halos'.
It's alright if you don't particulary like MCR, just give them a fair go, listen to more than a few songs, and don't say stuff like "MCR SUX! FUCK OFF YOU PISSY EMO FAGS".
Also, if you do like them, don't start saying things like "Z0MFG MCR PWNZ U NOOBS". That just creates a bad name for mcr.
Smart person1: " I heard a bit of their stuff and I don't really like it".

Stupid person2: "OMFG MCR ROX!!!!!!! IF U DONT LIKE THEM U ARE A FAg!!!!!!!!!!"
Smart person2: "My chemical romance is definetly one of my favourite bands. I love their music".

My Chemical Romance are an amazing band that have unique, poetic lyrics and band members that are just like normal people.
MCR don't even think of themselves as famous.
they live in NORMAL HOUSES.
They are not emo, they are beautiful, violent pop.
They have never reffered to themselves as emo unless being sarcastic.
Their lyrics are more sophisticated and deep than any crap "gangsta" singer's.
what sounds better? My chemical romance: "oh how wrong we were to think that immortality meant never dying."
"imaginary wedding gown that you can't wear in front of me. a kiss goodbye, your twisted shell, as rice grains and roses fall at your feet."
Or these random crappy lyrics?:
"you gotta pump it up!!!!"
"im gonna take you to the candy shop..."

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

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


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

They are not punk, they ARE emo, wich by the way, is short for "emotional rock". they suck, are gay and the singer looks ike a fucking girl. listen to some real music, you fucking faggots.
"My Chemical Romance" fucking sucks, you losers.
