My Chemical Romance is a band that formed in 2001. They are an awesome band who arent emo. They actually care about their fans and They are anti suicide.
They dont want us to throw away our lives and they want us to live
The band is led by Gerard Way, whos brother Mikey Way plays bass. Frank Iero, who used to be in Pencey Prep and is currently fronting Leathermouth is a rythmic guitarist and a pretty awesome psycho on too. Ray Toro, also known as "Fro-Boy" or the ToroNurse by some fans who love the Ghost of You video, is lead guitarist and Badass Bob Bryar is the drummer, who replace Matt Pellisier (sp?) in around 2004.

Their singles include
1) Vampires Will Never Hurt You
2) Honey this Mirror isnt big enough for the two of us.
3) Helena
4) Im Not Okay (i promise)
5) Welcome to The Black Parade
6) I Dont Love You
7) Famous Last Words
8) Teenagers

They are against homophobia, and they wanna save your life. So all of you haters that call MCR emo, they arent. Okay. Gerard gives speeches at concerts saying to never resort to violence to solve your problems, because honestly, it makes your issues worse.

They have been repeatidlt scapegoated by the Daily Mail (also known as the Daily Fail) for many adolescent suicides. But seriously, they arent the blame. These kids were bullied at school and people are just trying to find ways not to blame parents and the other schoolkids. MCR could have done nothing about this issue, but instead they addressed it peacefully, giving their condolences to the families.

Also, we fans are also called an "emo deathcult" well guess whhaaat? Labels are bullshit and we arent a deathcult. We are a fucking army.
MCR is an army...not a fucking deathcult.

"This is a band that definately wants to save your life"--Mikey Way

My Chemical Romance best band on earth because unlike some rap shyt most of the world is listening to this band has a purpose- nto change the world. and i swaer to Gee if you say that their purpose is making the world go emo Ill go Jackie Chan on your arse because they obviously wanna SAVE lives.

An EXTREMELY good band with alot of talent and potential. this band consits of Gerard Way- vocals, Mikey Way-bass, Frank Iero- Guitar, Ray Toro- Guitar and lets not forget the lovable Bob Bryar-Drums. My Chemical Romance came out with their first album in 2002 consisting of some really great songs such as demolition lovers, skylines and turnstiles (which is actually the first song Gerard wrote for MCR and it was inspired by 9/11) Early sunsets over monroeville and more. and in 2004 they got a new lable and a new album called Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge, which really put them on the map. unfortuanatly MTV got ahold of them and, im sorry to admit this, ravaged that album.
some people think MCR is Emo which is total and complete bullshit. whoever thinks that should actually take the time out of their sad lives and listen to the glorious sounds of MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE. To me, their music is undescribeable but if you actually listen to them you will see what i mean. they are just amazing

Ok, well for everyone who calls MCR "emo" or wannabee punk or whatever you are coming up with...shut...the...fuck...up. No one wants to hear you. We like MCR. Ok? I don't go around dissing the music other people listen to, and you shouldn't either. It's pretty stupid. I mean what do you get out of it? Knowing, er, rather, thinking that someone will get all pissed off because they love this band so much? Well that makes them pretty pathetic too. Music is music. Don't judge a band by your dumbass little labels you give it. And give it a try before you diss it. Believe me, I've tried listening to rap, I just don't like it. But I don't go around calling rappers "ghetto freaks" and what not. So get the fuck over yourselves. Thanks.
My Chemical Romance makes awesome music. So just don't label them. It's stupid.

This band, lead by former alcoholic Gerard Way, has come a long way in the last few years. With great music, good vocals, and awesome lyrics, I think it's quite possible this band will be around for a while.

Their song "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)" is a great song, but I suggest listening to some of their other stuff if you really want to hear their talents and style. Some of my favorites are "I Never Told You What I Do For A Living," "Helena," "You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison," "Cemetery Drive" and "To The End" (but all of their songs are pretty dang cool)

MCR haters, I'm with you in that I can't stand the fans who only like MCR ‘cause they're easy on the eyes. The guys are good looking, but there's a lot more to them than that. But oh well, suck it up and get over it. Just because some of their fans are wannabe's doesn't mean the guys in Chem are fake, too, so quit acting like they are.
"So many people treat you like you're a kid so you might as well act like one and throw your television out of the hotel window." -Gerard Way

the best band ever to walk the face of this earth, formed out of Jersey, by lead vocalist Gerard Way. brother Mikey on bass, "lover" Frank Iero on rhythm guitar, Bob Bryar on drums, and Ray Toro on lead guitar (AMAZING GUITARIST). MCR has gone through so much, with Gerard's struggle against alcoholism and drug abuse for the first few years of MCR's life. the name "my chemical romance" was formed by bassist Mikey Way after he saw the words "chemical romance" in a blurb on the back of a book while working in a book store, he simply added "my" to create the epic band name MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE. these guys are freaking awesome.

A freaken awesome band that is generally classified in the punk rock range. Dont even think about calling them emo because they specifically stated that they are not. The band is made up of the following members: Gerard Way, Mikey Way, Bob Bryar, Frank Iero, and Ray Toro. So far they have had three albums. I Brought you Bullets, you Brought me your Love. Some important songs from this album include, Vampires Will Never Hurt You, Thank you for the Venom and Honey, This Mirror isnt big enogh for the two of us. Their second album was Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge.(This is my personal favorite). A few songs from this album include Helena, Im Not Okay(I Promise), and The Ghost of You. Their third and most recent album is The Black Parade. This album had a lot of good songs including Teenagers, Welcome to the Black Parade, Famous Last Words, and I Dont Love You. This album was a huge sucess. Their newest album will be coming out sometime this year and will include Desolation Row which was on the soundtrack of the movie Watchmen. This band puts a lot of effort into their music so try and give them a listen.
My Chemical Romance is the beastly shiznit!!
