An "Emo" Band. Not emo music but Gerard Way (lead singer) says they dress emo. But not in the conception of what emo is today. They dress emo like how it was defined back when they were children. Away of style and music not sadness and depression. If you do not like My Chemical Romance then state you reasons in a civilized manor instead of cursing like a 5 year old bay bay kid. State the reasons but hear others opinions too. Yet liking a band for the way they look is distasteful that's way the cookie crumbles. No one says you have to like MCR. I for one think they are a good band. If you can get up on the stage and and sing making people feel better about their lives then do it. For you to complain how much "emo-ist" the are could be taken as "all the kids should kill themselves" And hopefully you don't mean that. But listening to all kinds of music can make you happy. From MCR to Lil'Wayne to even Carrie Underwood. But before you go making cross judgments on this band I say you should look at the good things they have done. And listen to their music. Thanks :]
tim-tom:ew I hate My Chemical Romance
MCR-4EV: Why?
Tim-Tom: Because the lead singer has a honkey tonk country like voice. It's annoying
Mcr-4ev: I don't know what you mean? His voice is almost always different. I love it!

The Real MCR: A very good band that is absolutely NOT emo. They have never claimed to be. Their lyrics are very deep, and thus MCR can appeal to a wide range of listeners.
poser-emo: OMG My Chemical Romance is sooooo emo!
Normal people: Shut up loser.

A band from New Jersey, usually bashed for being popular among "emo" kids. Their guitar work gets repetitive and boring, but the lyrics aren't so bad. They're a terrific band live actually. Most refer to them as MCR.
Guy #1: I saw My Chemical Romance last weekend.

Guy #2: omgzzzz they're liek sooo 3moooo.

Guy #1: Actually, when you look past that they're not all that bad.

A New Jersey-based softcore punk band.
To date (Nov, '07), they have three full-lengths out. I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love (Commonly abbreviated to Bullets); Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge (Abb. Revenge); and The Black Parade (Abb. TBP).

This band doesn't deserve half the shit they cop. People judge them over their mainstream songs - these songs are not their best, and the band as a whole should not be judged on them. No band should.

This band has a way of saving lives. Something about their lyrics, their passion, their emotion and what their frontman has been through has the ability to save people.

Frontman/Vocalist: Gerard Way
Lead Guitarist/Backup Vocalist: Ray Toro
Rhythm Guitarist/Backup Screamo: Frank Iero
Bassist: Mikey Way
Drummer: Bob Bryar, formerly Matt Pelissier.

This band are often called 'emo' because of their emotional lyrics and 'dark' dress sense.
The truth of the matter is, there is a fine line between emo and softcore punk. My Chemical Romance fall into the latter.
Elizabeth put Revenge on the CD player one night when she was about to kill herself, and it brought her back down.

"Dude, my chemical romance are weak faggots! Listen to that 'Love You' song! It's gay as!"
"Hey, give them a break! Have you even heard a song like Thank You For The Venom or Our Lady Of Sorrows?"

My Chemical Romance is a band just like Green Dayand Backstreet Boys. All though there is a huge gap in between Green Day and BSB music wise, they are both bands.

MCR do not label themselves "emo" and I simply do not see how they are either. Their songs "I'm Not Okay" and "Helena" are the only songs practically mentioned in the previous definitions, they have other songs too like "Our Lady Of Sorrows" and "Give 'Em Hell Kid".

Gerard Way, lead singer, is not in any way "emo" and has good fashion sense. He does not promote self harm or suicide. Gerard is just a normal guy in the world that doesn't deserve being insulted by those who listen to 50 Cent and Aaron Carter.

And none of the members is "mine" and they definitly do not want your babies. So STFU.
Teenie: ZOMG iZn'T gErAlD fRoM cHeMiCaL rOmAnCe HAWT??!!
Fan: No. "Gerard" from "My Chemical Romance" is talented and not just easy on the eyes.

A very influential Post-Hardcore band from the shores of New Jersey. Often classified as Emo/Punk/Goth, the band themselves have never put a label on themselves, and for this, should be noted. While the main audience for the band seems to be teens, it is impossible to cast stereotypes onto the listeners, as the band themselves are an extremely varied bunch of guys. Releasing their first album in 2002, their second in 2004 and their DVD in 2006, the band have come a long way in only four short years.

They also put on one hell of a live performance.
Love, you are My Chemical Romance.

Who cares what genre the band is? I dosen't fucking matter if they are emo or punk or hadcore or whatever! My Chemical Romance is a fucking awesome band! It is good music, and if you don't like it then, sorry, you don't know what you are missing, but I am not gonna sit here and tell you that you are a dumbass or something like that, you just have different taste in music. If you have only heard one or two of their songs, I suggest you listen to some other things by them. I know that I don't like Helena, Ghost of You, of I'm not Okay. Just because I don't like them dosn't mean the band sucks. Give them a try. As for teenie bopping, people are going to do whatever they want, no matter what people say. And for good measure, I agree with those of you who say Gerard is sexy.
BTW: Green Day is two words, not "Greenday". If you are going to diss a band, at least spell their name properly. "Stay out of the light, or the photograph that I gave you, you can say a prayer if you need to, some other way to continue, to hide my face" I Never Told You What I Do for a Living- Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, My Chemical Romance is the best!
