My Chemical Romance Essay

1062 words - 4 pages

My Chemical Romance is a pop/punk band. It is debated however, what genre of music it
truly belongs to. Some people argue it belongs into the "emo" genre, others say "pop". Whatever
genre of music it truly belongs to, My Chemical Romance sure has changed the lives of everyone
who listens to them. From their first album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your
Love, to their last, May Death Never Stop You, fans all around the world have supported them in
their 12 years of music.

It all started when lead singer, Gerard Way, was doing animation in New York City. Suddenly,
he began to rethink his life and what direction he wanted to go with it. His high school friends
had finished high school and scattered around to decide where to go in life, some still attending
school. Way called his friend Matt, who had been asking himself the same questions, they
decided to get together and play some music. Matt soon became the drummer and together they
started to write songs. (

The first song that Way and Pelissier came up with was called "Skylines and Turnstiles" (a
title reflecting the fact that Way had been working in New York City, where he was in the
animation field). Way and Pelissier both felt good about the song, and Way asked guitarist Ray
Toto if he would be interested in working with them. My Chemical Romance's five-man lineup
was complete when Way, Pelissier, and Toto joined forces with bassist Mikey Way (Gerard Way's
brother) and guitarist Frank Iero. With that lineup in place, the band started playing all around
the Northeast Corridor and made plans to begin working on its first album.

After being picked up by Eyeball Records in New Jersey, they marched in and recorded their
first album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, and published it on July 23,
2002. The album was based on the Bonnie and Clyde story, this is obvious in the song
'Demolition Lovers'. The song 'Skylines and Turnstiles', written shortly after the 9/11 attack, was
inspired by the tragic events of September 11, 2001 Gerard Way witnessed on his way to work.
The song 'Early Sunsets of Monroeville' was meant to be, "A sweet song about the Dawn of the
Dead series," says Gerard Way. ( (

June 8, 2004, the album Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge as released. It brought My
Chemical Romance into a more violent, pop/punk style. The album is supposed to portray the
feeling of loss. The album was based on a man who comes back from the dead to kill the ones
who had treated him poorly during his lifetime. The song 'Helena' is, according to fansites, is the
girl on the cover of the album. My Chemical Romance were, at this point, growing more and
more. (

October 26, 2006, The Black Parade is released. The most popular album My Chemical
Romance ever made. It started...
