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!!!

My Chemical Romance is a band from New Jersey, whom grew up on the same types of music as your parents. Social Distortion, KISS, Queen, David Bowie, Iron Maiden, Twisted Sister; things that were big in the times that they were kids. What makes them "emo" or "goth"? Because they have a particular liking to the color black or morbid objects and themes? Bullshit. That just makes them a tad dark, not "emo fags who whine about how their lives suck". If you say that, you're a dumbshit. Gerard himself, as have the rest of the band, have said numerous times that they aren't emo, nor goth. If anything, if we were to label them, they would be violent pop or violent alternative music.

Gerard and Bert are not dating, nor have they ever. In fact, they aren't even friends anymore. They are just two guys who met while playing and singing the things that they love. What makes them different from every other rock band? If you think that Twisted Sister or KISS are "great rock bands", and think that My Chemical Romance is a "gay, fag-like band" because of the fact that they wear make up--then you're a retard. Ever heard of HAIR METAL? Or SEEN the make up KISS wears!
Frank is not "gay for Gerard". He's engaged, for heaven's sake! Just because they give slight pecks-of-a-kiss does not make them a gay couple. It's for jokes and giggles, and for the fans because that's what they want. THAT, and it's a free country to be bisexual, so saying, "I would date Gerard," should be okay and not "offensive". But, same as before, with the make up and the hair metal statement; bands like KISS and such played on fans' very emotions like that, too. Watch a live preformance, or something.

Have you ever seen them live? I have. Gerard himself talks about this subject on why people try to label them emo. They're doing what they love to do, play their own music. Who cares if it's dark? "Good rock" and "punk" talks about getting shitfaced and having sex, the government and death. Get over yourselves if you think they're emo. They're not. They're just guys doing what they love.

And, you know what? Listen to the "good" rock bands talk on interviews, and such. Listen to them and their theories about modern day rock bands. I've heard several about My Chemical Romance, and they were all good. GOOD! They don't have a problem with them, so why do you?

And, please. Don't say you want "their babies" or "to rape them" unless you're completely and utterly joking. It gets old, and I'm sure they hear it every day.
My Chemical Romance is not an emo band, but a group of guys doing what they love; playing music. What makes them any different from the bands you grew up on? Not much. Maybe a tad more make up depending on if you were a fan of KISS or Twisted Sister, or Scorpion, but that's about it. Get over yourselves. If you don't like them, don't listen to them.

"Be Yourself, Don't take anyone's shit and never let them take you alive..." Gerard Way.

"If for one minute you think you're better than a sixteen year old girl in a Green Day t-shirt, you are sorely mistaken. Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band. You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn't know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about." Gerard Way.

Me: Uh, I really like them. Good music. End of story.

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.
Person2: Yup MCR ROCKS! AND FUCK ALL YOU HATERS!

I'm not going to say that My Chemical Romance is the best band ever or that they suck. I honestly love them, 1 because I think their songs are good, 2 because they helped save my best friend's life.
Nobody should like this band because their songs are on the radio or hate them because they don't like their music. My Chemical Romance is a band, so of course they'll have haters and fans.
People say that My Chemical Romance is emo or gay, which is not true. You can try to pinpoint their music style, but you can't really. Each one of their songs has a different style that may or may not be noticed by the listener.
If you've only heard their songs from the radio then I highly recommend listening to some of their other songs. The songs that you hear a lot aren't My Chemical Romance, not truly. My Chemical Romance is all of their songs, every one of their albums.
A lot of people judge My Chemical Romance, calling them emo pussies. Sure that's your opinion. You can't call their fans emo or idiots for liking them, that's like blaming someone for falling in love with someone. You can't control the type of music you like, so just quit blaming people for liking them. You can't control what bands you don't like, so don't get all mad at the haters (although the people who don't like them could honestly learn some respect).
My Chemical Romance IS NOT a suicide band. They don't want people to kill themselves, hurt themselves, and they want people to be themselves.
My Chemical Romance is a band, that's that.

A rock band that, contrary from popular belief, is not emo. Most people assume that they are emo because from the video of "Famous Last Words" and "Welcome to the Black Parade", the style is dark, relates to death, and uses LOTS of black eyeliner. Songs prior to that, like "Kill All Your Friends" or "I'm not OK" are emo. The style seems emo, but not the band. Lyrics form FLW: "...I am not afraid to keep on living...", that's ANTI-emo. The album "Dangerous Days..."(too long to type) is more heavy rock, but not emo.
Friend: You listen to My Chemical Romance? You're so emo!

Me: No, I'm not.

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*
