An amazing band which are hard to describe. Many people class them as emo, but some class the, as punk. 'I'm Not Okay', 'Thank You For The Venom' and 'Helena' are all amazing songs which you should hear. If you dont like them I personally think you should get your faces out of your shitty backsides and start listening to them a bit more :)
And plus I'm seeing them in November lol..

They are like marmite. You either HATE them or LOVE them... there is no inbetween:)

Obsessed or Disgusted.. you pick.. but before you judge them on what you have read or heard about them just PLEASE listen to the album 'i brought you my bullets you brought me your love' and then you can make a judgement..:)

TBH i probably owe them my sanity.

They aren't punk, they're emo. Punk is Ramones, Social Distortion and Rancid. If you think MCR is punk, you don't know what punk is.
poser:"I'm punk, 'cause I listen to MCR!"

real punk:"Your NOT punk. MCR aren't punk."

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 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.

A band formed in New Jersey by Gerard Way
Other band members include Mikey Way, Frank Iero, and Ray Toro.
Unfortunately, they broke up today, March 23rd, 2013
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.

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?!!!!??!!!!
