A good band from Newark, New Jersey. They make punk/emo/pop rock. They fucking rule.

And to the kids who say ''OMFG MCR SUX!!1!11!!11!!1", shut up. Go back to listening to your Lil Jon & Eastside boys or Petey Pablo.
My Chemical Romance rule.

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

Great band. The definitions seem the same after a while, you'd think that some crazy psyco bitch went on an "I hate MCR" rampage and posted more than one. They are NOTHING like good charelote, and deserve more credit than to be called "emo pussies" Don't judge a band by the stupid fans who don't know anything about them. "Helena" and "I'm Not OK" are ok songs, but there are definately better songs than these on their cd's (as in two, not just three cheers for sweet revenge) The song "Our lady of Sorrows" if great, as is "Vampires will never hurt You", "Demolition Lovers", and "Early Sunsets Over Monroeville"
My Chemical Romance, as in tallented, if you don't think so, then don't listen to them, but don't call them "emo pussies" because that's low.

A book I wrote about how I made love to an oxygen particle
"Have you read my new book, My Chemical Romance?"

A New Jersey- born rock/alternative band formed in 2001 consisting of Gerard Way (Vocals), Ray Toro (Guitar), Mikey Way (Guitar), and Frank Iero (Guitar). They have a new drummer, but I forgot his name. Sorry! MCR's sound has moved from dark and hard core to violent pop. :) I like it. They have been getting crap from the press in the past for being a bad influence on listeners, but time and time again they have told their fans to get help if they're feeling depressed and to feel like they are never really alone. They got their name from a book by Irvine Welsh.

Albums:
I Brought you My Bullets, You Brought me your love(2002)
Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge (2004)
The Black Parade (2006)
Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys (2010)
My Chemical Romance is freakin' amazing. They are not evil; I am a Christian, but I still like to rock!

my chemical romance
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, because it really is the most overused, and wrongly used genre out there.

"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.

BEGINNINGS:
My Chemical Romance is a New Jersey band that was started by vocalist Gerard Way and after the 9/11 attacks. Before that, Gerard was working as a comic book artist in New York, but he didn't feel like his job was helping anyone. He wanted to reach out to people. 9/11 spurred him into action and it was also his inspiration for the song "Skylines and Turnstiles". He got in contact with his friend Matt Pelissier (drummer) and began running songs. Later he called up guitarist Ray Toro and asked for him to play. They still needed a bass though, so Gerard asked his brother Mikey Way if he would learn bass so he could be in the band. Frank Iero became a later addition (former lead guitar and vocals for the New Jersey band, Pencey Prep). Matt later left the group in 2004 and was replaced by Bob Bryar, the tech man touring with The Used.
Gerard used to get drunk before every show to prevent stage fright. All the drinking eventually made him suicidal and he didn't want to go on like this way anymore. He decided that he wanted to take his life but was fortuantely talked out of it by his Tour Manager. August 11, 2004, Gerard went cold turkey from his drinking problem and taking pills (Xanax). He has been sober ever since.

MUSIC:
There has been controversy over the precise musical genre of My Chemical Romance. They have been things such as: punk, emo, hardcore, screamo, goth, and vampiric rock. I personally don't label them. They have an entirely unique sound all of their own that doesn't need a definition. Call them what you want, but to me, they are simply MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE.

THE NAME:
Bassist Mikey Way was working in Barnes and Noble when he came across some books by Irvine Welsh. One Title caught his eye: "Extacy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance". He proposed the name to the band after adding the "My" for a personal touch.

ALBUMS:
Their first album, "I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love" was released in 2002. There are videos for "Honey..." and "Vampires...", but they never reached the surface. They can be viewed on youtube.com.

1. "Romance"
2. "Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough For the Two of Us"
3. "Vampires Will Never Hurt You"
4. "Drowning Lessons"
5. "Our Lady Of Sorrows"
6. "Headfirst for Halos"
7. "Skylines and Turnstiles"
8. "Early Sunsets Over Monroeville"
9. "This is the Best Day Ever
10. "Cubicles"
11. "Demolition Lovers"

"Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge" was later put out in 2004. The album sold more in the first week than "Bullets" sold in it's whole lifespan. Singles are: "Helena", "I'm Not Okay (I Prmoise)", and "Ghost of You". Rumors have it that the next song will be "Prison..." or "Cemetery Drive". "Helena" was about Gerard and Mikey's grandmother, Elena Lee Rush, passing away.

1. "Helena"
2. "Give 'Em Hell, Kid"
3. "To The End"
4. "You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison"
5. "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)
6. "Ghost Of You"
7. "Jetset Life Is Gonna Kill You"
8. "Interlude"
9. "Thank You For The Venom"
10. "Hang 'Em High"
11. "It's Not a Fashion Statement, It's a Fucking Deathwish"
12. "Cemetery Drive"
13. "I Never Told You What I Do For a Living"

THE FUTURE:
The band is now working on their next album, rumored to be called "The Rise and Fall of My Chemical Romance". Their DVD/CD documentary, "Life on the Murder Scene" was released March 21, 2006 to the joy of their fans. It includes 2 DVD discs of video diaries and live performances and 1 CD of live performances.
My Chemical Romance is a sincere band and loves to play live and meet fans. They genuinely care about their fans too, and not just about the publicity. At shows, Gerard will tell the crowd things like: "If you or someone you know is suicidal, YOU NEED TO TALK ABOUT IT. Talk to a friend, a teacher, a parent, someone from school, I don't give a fuck who. Just talk to someone."

My Chemical Romance is the band that saved my life.
