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.
OMG i Heart My Chemical Romance...

OMG i Hate My Chemical Romance...

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 "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.

My Chemical Romance isn't any type of music. They are what they are and that's it. Don't think just because some of their songs have meaningful lyrics in them that they encourage suicide and wrist slitting and low self-esteem.The people who judge them after hearing one song or just by looking at their picture need to get over themselves immediatly or we may have a SERIOUS problem on our hands. People think that their fans are depressed emo losers who think there's absolutly no reason to live, well to all of them, I'm proudly addicted to MCR and if you ask people who know me they will say that I'm the happiest, most hyper and random kid you will ever meet, and that I laugh uncontrollably. So there to all those haters, there, take a gander at that! O_O sorry about that. Anywho, also their lyrics have deeper meanings than any of those rap lyrics. And I personally that all rap "songs" if that is what you call them, are extremely degrading to women. But then again, that's just my opinion, preach what you want to, just believe in it yourself first. For all the people who think MCR really doesn't save lives, well, I'm living proof. If it wasn't for MCR I would probably either be dead or completly miserable trying to commit suicide. MCR has helped me through a lot, and they truly are an inspiration in everything they do. They are the most talented people in the world and they don't act lke assholes either because of it. And they don't do any of this at all for the money, they started it to make a difference in the world, and they are still are.
Person 1: MCR is emo shit that makes you want to die.
Person 2: Uh-huh, sure it is, and how many songs have you heard?
Person 1: Ummm......well, there was that one...
Person 2: Exactly. Before you make a statement about something, actually have some facts on it.

My Chemical Romance is an awesome band who people judge because they have nothing else to do with their shitty lives, end of story.
