Biography

New Jersey, United States (2001 – 2013)

My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from New Jersey, United States formed in 2001. The band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way and keyboardist James Dewees. Shortly after forming, the band signed to Eyeball Records and released their debut album I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love in 2002. They signed with Reprise Records the next year and released their major label debut Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge in 2004; the album was a commercial success, and was awarded platinum status a little over a year later.

The band eclipsed their previous success with their 2006 concept album, The Black Parade, which gained generally favorable reviews among music critics. Their fourth studio album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, was released on November 22, 2010, to positive reviews. The band’s final release was a series of singles, released over the course of five months, collected on the compilation Conventional Weapons. The band announced its break-up on March 22, 2013, one month after the final release in the Conventional Weapons series. On March 25, 2014, the band released May Death Never Stop You: The Greatest Hits 2001–2013, a greatest hits album containing material spanning their entire career, as well as some previously unreleased material.

    idk how i even remembered my password for this thing but i came to visit this page knowing this band is broken up and like, RIP. i will never forget what it meant to me when i was just a little kid transitioning into junior high. what it continued to give me through high school, when the black parade came out. that was kind of my last hurrah with them, but i never stopped admiring their talent. overall great band, no regrets. i have my MCR armband somewhere. i remember finding a code to find the hidden item on their merch site. i was fortunate enough to see them while my interest was peaked. follow gerard way on twitter and you'll feel better.

    Tbh I didn't like their last album as much but I went to one of their shows anyway and it was still a blast, despite not knowing most of the newer songs. Their first two albums will always be my favourite!

    The beginning of the song Heaven Help Us ... does anyone know what it supposed to be inspired by? It sounds like some famous classic song... I just can't put my finger on it. Video for Heaven Help Us
