A member of the tremendous battalion of lame New Jersey post-hardcore/power pop/blargh/pseudo-genre bending radio-friendly over-produced bands that have recently broken into the American mainstream in an unexpected manner. One of the many bands who are worshipped by legions of former preps who now wear studded belts, Chuck Taylors, and check their Myspace account every six minutes. Fans of My Chemical Romance are usually in-between everything. They're too "refined" to like Linkin Park, Korn, and other ultra-mainstream angst-peddlers but too dense and flat to really do much more than haphazardly dabble in bands that are somewhat more challenging to get into, such as pre-"Dark Side of the Moon" Pink Floyd and Sonic Youth.

My Chemical Romance is mainly at home in combining the sad-sack tendencies of emo lyrics and the overbearing self-absorption found therein (yes I know they're not emo you fucking idiots, emo is a very specific style of music that for all practical purposes has been dead for a few years. But you're truly a moron if you don't think they at least borrow some elements of that genre) with the overdone theatrics of prog rock and metal while having absolutely none of the virtuosity associated with those genres. Makes use of the same limp musicianship that is present in every other generic "dynamic" or "emotional" (short for "not really good at anything") rock band currently making 16 year old girls with glasses and acne cream their pants across the country.

Speaking of their lyrics, this band is nothing special when compared to their peers while absolutely awful compared to somewhat decent bands. One of the "good songs" another person mentioned in another definition contains the following lyrics:
" And if they get me and the sun goes down into the ground
And if they get me take this spike to my heart and
And if they get me and the sun goes down
And if they get me take this spike and
You put the spike in my heart

And if the sun comes up will it tear the skin right off our bones
And then as razor sharp white teeth rip out our necks I saw you there
Someone call the doctor, someone get me to a church
Where they can pump this venom gaping hole
And you must keep your soul like a secret in your throat
And if they come and get me
You put the spike in my heart"

Good God. Nothing but lame, weak metaphors about hearts, souls, secrets, gaping holes in all three, and other asinine, pretentious bullshit that is showcased in most songs in this God-forsaken genre. Overblown, meandering pablum that doesn't really even mean anything.
People who like My Chemical Romance were probably listening to Linkin Park three years ago.

is a pathetic band who is lead by the Wannabe marilyn manson, Gerard way, My chemical romance (MCR for short) is popular with the Emo crowd, their lyrical content subsists on either fake depression or "my girlfriend broke up with me because i'm too much of a pussy" gerard way is prone to making a ass of himself in interviews, when he talked about his aryan-esc look he had for a time this is what he had to say

"I wanted this short white hair so I would look like this character, who I pictured as someone who had maybe gone through chemotherapy… it helped me channel that energy into the vocal performances."

Mcr is up there with other pathetic cuntwhore bands such as Afi and Him
Gerard way from My chemical romance ; "I wanted this short white hair so I would look like this character, who I pictured as someone who had maybe gone through chemotherapy… it helped me channel that energy into the vocal performances."

Interviewer; "...get the fuck off my show wanksack"

MCR is a band from New Jersey. Gerard is a sexy beast, and I will marry him ^^
anywayz.. they sound like a punk/rock/emo/screamo band. I'm not Emo at all, but I erally love their music.. they are my Idols! I can't spend one day without the CD..
if you want to listen to REAL MCR music, listen to : thank you for the venom, you know what they do to guys like us in prison, and i never told you what i do for a living.. if you don't like 'im not okay' , it doesn't mean that you won't like the other..
THEY ROCK \m/ \m/
Thank You For The Venom

Sister, I'm not much a poet, but a criminal
And you never had a chance
Love it, or leave it, you can't understand
A pretty face, but you do so carry on,
and on, and on

I wouldn't front the scene if you paid me
I'm just the way that the doctor made me, on,
and on, and on, and on
Love is the red of the rose on your coffin door
What's life like, bleeding on the floor, the floor, the floor.

You'll never make me leave.
I wear this on my sleeve.
Give me a reason to believe.

So give me all you poison
And give me all your pills
And give me all your hopeless hearts
And make me ill
You're running after something
That you'll never kill
If this is what you want
Then fire at will

Preach all you want but who's gonna save me?
I keep a gun on the book that you gave me,
Hallelujah, lock and load.
Black is the kiss, the touch of the serpent son
It ain't the mark or the scar that makes you one.
And run, and run, and run

You'll never make me leave
I wear this on my sleeve
Give me a reason to believe

So give me all your poison
And give me all your pills
And give me all your hopeless hearts
And make me ill
You're running after something
That you'll never kill
If this is what you want
Then fire at will

You'll never make me leave
I wear this on my sleeve
You wanna follow something
Give me a better cause to lead
Just give me what I need
Give me a reason to believe

My Chemical Romance, in simple words, is one of those degrading, whiny, semi-conscious bands that have broken into the American mainstream in an unexpected manner. People who ingest the ‘music’ that this very overrated, and yet under talented band makes are either misguided or completely daft.

The other day, I attempted to watch a My Chemical Romance music video. Good God. These amateurs make utterly dreadful music. As I watched, it disintegrated some of my valuable brain cells, and probably lowered my IQ by a minimum of 10 points. Seemingly, I lived, only to witness and hear half of the repulsive video.

Now, a hardcore My Chemical Romance fan, fueled by angst might pop out of nowhere and flare, “Shut the hell up, My Chemical Romance is real music fool!’’

Real music? You are mentally incapable of comprehending that My Chemical Romance is deceiving you by representing fashion through sound waves. Yet again, how is it real music when the drummer who is non-proficient, is banging away monotonously on the drums, and the guitarist scrubbing away deviously on his guitar which is out of tune? And yet again, the so-called infamous ‘vocalist’ Gerard Way, attempting to whine out meaningless trash fixated on that musical rubbish, which is weak and tasteless.

How can you even admire such gibberish? Gerard Way sounds as if he was impregnated by an incubus, and is failing at breath, trying to give birth to a demon baby.

Don’t you get it? These imbeciles are attempting to get placed on a pedestal and paid millions and millions of dollars, utilizing their horrible trash. Their angst instigated nature is encouraged by the mainstream MTV, where they can relieve their heinous videos in order to get drowned in a pool of cash. You have to understand that these ugly music videos are nothing but marketing tools intended to promote the sale of music recordings.

My Chemical Romance is nowhere near art. Their ‘music’ can be compared to someone who is spilling raw, viscous paint on a canvas. Now let me give you an example, regarding this. Let us take a real musician, Robert Fripp for instance and the amateur Gerard Way, and tell them to design a statue of a man. Robert Fripp has sculpted a statue, which has a very complex structure, with different kinds of moods and colours, pertaining a very concise texture, and is worth enjoying looking at. Gerard way, on the other hand, who has no knowledge of this, has made a statue with no basic structure or texture at all. Evidently, the deformed statue that he has attempted to make will collapse. If you turn this into music, you will see the differences.

My Chemical Romance concentrates on their image, more than they could ever dream of focusing on their music. The babbling of teenage girls concerning the ‘sexiness’ of Gerard Way, is rather disturbing. Let’s face it, just look at him! His grotesque image is imprinted upon my brain. It’s really hard to believe that these immature teenagers find him attractive, and are willing to mutilate their body parts for him.

These nitwits, who dress silly, are a threat to actual music, any individual not deprived of average understanding of basic logic, will comprehend this.

The conclusion? Maybe you could find yourself some real bands and then devote your life to them, instead of wasting your valuable time and your unworthy life listening to such trash.
My Chemical Romance fan: Oh!!111!! McR is teh godz!!!

Intelligent person: Shut up, you idiot.

one of the greatest bands and anyone one who says they are gay actually URE the gay one. they could kick ure ass at anything so dont even try! and i bet all y people that say they r gay havnt even heard any other songs besides maybe im not okay and helena so SHUT UP!
In the middle of a gun fight...
In the center of a restaurant...
They say, "Come with your arms raised high!"

back home, off the run
singing songs that make you slit your wrists
it isn't that much fun, staring down a loaded gun
so i won't stop dying, won't stop lying
if you want i'll keep on crying
did you get what you deserve?
is this what you always want me for?

Another knife in my hands
A stain that never comes off the sheets
Clean me off
I'm so dirty babe
The kind of dirty where the water never cleans off the clothes
I keep a book of the names and those
