My Chemical Romance is a popular American rock band. The genre of music the band plays is often misinterpreted andhighlydebated.However, vocalist Gerard Way refers to their music as "violent pop". The band cites their influences from othergroupssuch as Thursday, IronMaiden, the Smiths and the Misfits. The band members hail from Belleville and Kearny, NewJersey(except drummer Bob Bryar from Chicago,Illinois). Bassist Mikey Way coined the band's name from a book entitledEcstasy:Three Tales of Chemical Romance, by Irvine Welsh.Since forming almost five years ago, the group has managed torelease twoalbums with a third in the works titled The Black Parade ( setto be released Oct. 24th 2006 ). In 2002, theyreleased IBrought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, a collection of songsrecorded only three months after theband's initialformation. An admirable achievement definitely, but even more surprising was the receptionthe album received.Critically, it waslauded from many corners (and derided from many others) and led to support tours with established artiststhelikes of Thriceand Taking Back Sunday.Signing to Reprise Records in 2003, the band set to work on their major label debut andreleasedThree Cheers For Sweet Revenge thenext summer. Eventually to go platinum, the album broke the band as afullymainstream outfit, with hit singles 'Helena,' 'I'm Not Okay' and'The Ghost of You' causing a stir on MTV and TRL alike.Togetherwith bands like The Used, Panic! At The Disco et al., My Chemical Romancehave received much scorn for theirsupposedly "emo"sound and image however with an ever-expanding fanbase, their apparent notorietyseems only to be helpingthem at this time. « hide
