My Chemical Romance

My Chemical Romance is my current addictions, thus I must write about them.

My Chemical Romance was originally created by Gerard Way (the lead singer). Gerard Way had graduated from The School of Visual Arts in New York in 1999. After he watched the twin towers fall on September 11th, 2001, he decided to create a band in its “honor.” Gerard Way quit his job selling comic books and recruited high school friend (and drummer) Matt Pelissier.

They named the band after the book Ecstasy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance by Irvine Welsh. They started recording and eventually Ray Toro (guitarist), Frank Iero (guitarist), and Mikey Way (bassist and Gerard’s younger brother).

Eventually My Chemical Romance made “emo” popular to the rock-scene.

Not too long ago, My Chemical Romance broke up. In a letter from Gerard Way he wrote that the break up wasn’t cruel, or back-stabbing, but an understanding from the beginning. He realized this while on stage one night. He writes :

“I perform, semi-automatically, and something is wrong, I am acting. I never act onstage, even when it appears that I am, even when I’m hamming it up or delivering a soliloquy. Suddenly, I have become highly self-aware, almost as if waking from a dream. I began to move faster, more frantic, reckless – trying to shake it off – but all it began to create was silence. The amps, the cheers, all began to fade.

“All that what left was the voice inside, and I could hear it clearly. It didn’t have to yell — it whispered, and said to me briefly, plainly, and kindly – what it had to say.

“What it said was between me and the voice.”

Why I love this band:

For their truthful lyrics and energetic choruses and bridges.
