look up any word, like sex:
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.

1.A great band, fronted by a man called Gerard Way, who don't deserve the crap that retards throw at them. They are NOT poseurs because they do NOT classify themselves as any type of rock when they really aren't. (For an example of poseur look up Avril Lavigne or Ashlee Simpson.) They actually classify themselves as "pop". Does that spell poseur to you?
2. A teriffic band that has recently come out with their second album, "Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge". For those preppy girls who watch TRL and ONLY TRL, NO it is NOT their second album. Their first album is called "I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love". Once again, the chicks who THINK they like them just because of ONE song, aka "I'm Not Okay", would be another example of poseur.
Posuer Fan- "Like, OMG! Have you heard about that totally hot NEW band called My Chemical Romance?! Their lead singer, Jerry Way is sooo totally hot!"

Real Fan- *break the wrist, walk away quietly*

An awesome band that features five amazing and talented guys: Gerard way, Mikey way, Frank iero, Ray Toro, and Bob Bryar.
They're an alternative rock band, but is also considered to be an emo band. Which is not true since most people consider the term emo as a trend. They are NOT emo for they even said so in an interview. THey are themselves and no one should label them emo.
They're awesome and you should seriously check them out sometimes since their music really speaks the truth.

The world can't always be about lovey dovey stuff as many people write today. it's also about the cruel things that's happening in daily lives and they speak the truth and real emotions that you feel once in your life
Person1: My chemical romance sure rocks
Person2: Of course
Person1: Their songs are really inspirational
Person2: And emotional i mean if more people stop and try to listen to their music maybe they won't consider them as freaks
Person1: They're not freaks it's just many people judge on looks these days
Person2: Definantly that's where the word "cliques" and "labels" were formed.
Person1: Yup they should definantly try to listen to Helena that's a very beautiful song
Person2: No disenchanted
Person1 and Person2: NO THANKS FOR THE VENOM
Person1: Oh man i can't even pick they just make such good songs
Person2: Yup in my opinion i think it's better than those trash lame disney corporations come up with. I mean seriously "I wanna get back get back with you" I mean ever heard of get over it he was probably a jerk more fish in the sea.
Person1: Hmm what about "Burning up"
i mean it starts out with "I"m hot" which is sorta self absorbed if you ask me.
Person2: Yup! But that's the jonas brothers i mean how long do you think it took kevin to get those ugly sideburns or joe to grow out a bushy eyebrows.
Person1: Exactly i mean my chemical romance is really such an amazing band.
Person2: THey inspired me so much.
Meanperson: I think they're stupid
Person1: Gasp how come?
Meanperson: Well i mean the lyrics is shit you can't even understand it
Person2: That's because it's similar to poetry you have to dig deep to find the meaning you can't just expect it to be like those regular songs that have simple lyrics that even a 3 year old can understand.

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.

An Alt. Rock/Post hardcore band from New Jersey. Often abreviated to 'mcr' or 'My chem.' Cops a lot of flak for no paticular reason. Constantly labled Goth, emo etc. just because a few of the band members have Black hair and wear small amounts of makeup. They aren't the same as Simple Plan or Good Charlette who bitch about how crap their lives are. Their songs have moving, almost poetic lyrics.
Most haters base their opinions entirely on 'I'm not okay' which, whilst not a bad song, is definetly not their best. Check out something more like 'Thank you for the venom' or 'Headfirst for halos'.
It's alright if you don't particulary like MCR, just give them a fair go, listen to more than a few songs, and don't say stuff like "MCR SUX! FUCK OFF YOU PISSY EMO FAGS".
Also, if you do like them, don't start saying things like "Z0MFG MCR PWNZ U NOOBS". That just creates a bad name for mcr.
Smart person1: " I heard a bit of their stuff and I don't really like it".

Stupid person2: "OMFG MCR ROX!!!!!!! IF U DONT LIKE THEM U ARE A FAg!!!!!!!!!!"
Smart person2: "My chemical romance is definetly one of my favourite bands. I love their music".

An amazing, super-talented band from New Jersey USA. The current memebrs are Gerard Way, Frank Iero, Mikey Way and Ray Toro. They formed in 2001, a couple of weeks after 9/11 after lead singer Gerard saw it. He wrote the song Skylines and Turnstiles about what he saw. In 2002 they released their first album I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love which had the singles Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough For The Two Of Us, Vampires Will Never Hurt You and Headfirst For Halos. In 2004, they released Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, and they released 4 singles. I'm Not Okay (I Promise), Thank You For The Vemon, Helena and The Ghost Of You. In 2006, the brought out their biggest selling album The Black Parade and with it the singles: Welcome To The Black Parade, Famous Last Words, I Don't Love You and Teenagers. The album went Platinum in the UK. Their latest album (released November 2010) is Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys. There has been 4 singles Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na), The Only Hope For Me Is You, SING and Planatery (GO!). Over the years My Chemical Romance have had lots of criticism from many sources, and have been accused of being emo when they are not!! THEY ARE NOT! They describe their music as just Rock or Violent Pop. Often their band name will be abbrieviated to MCR and their devoted fans will normally says that they are in the MCRmy.
Non-My Chemical Romance fan: OMG! There's this band that I just heard about, they're totally emo!
My Chemical Romance fan: *Smacks Non MCR fan* Take That Bitch! THEY ARE SO NOT EMO!!!

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!
