Gerard Way on the Death of MCR
2014-07-10 by Thomas Sanborn | 49 Comments
In a recent interview with Kerrang! Magazine, Gerard Way, formerly of My Chemical Romance, went in-depth about the negative feelings and events he experienced leading up to the eventual breakup of the band.

In the interview, Way claims that he originally intended My Chemical Romance to split after touring for The Black Parade and admits every release following it to be the result of an early mid-life crisis.

Gotta love Kerrang calling MCR the most important rock band of the past decade lol, and I love MCR.

""I was in bed," Dan King recalls. "I broke the news to my girlfriend as if a family member had passed
away.""

The farther I get into this, the harder it is to take it serious...

Was Kerrang always this obsessed with them? They're making it out as if they're the Beatles.

The day the most important rock band of the past decade called it a day.

Seriously? Have these people ever looked beyond what kids like?

I mean, the thing is, they were a really impactful band and in more ways than one. I'm glad that he acknowledges that everything following The Black Parade is subpar but, at the same time, The Black Parade can't even touch Three Cheers.

It's so fucking weird, this writer romanticizes his every movement, obviously it's written for the kids that think this interview is the deepest/most intense moment of existence.

March 22, 2013. The day My Chemical Romance pressed stop. The day the most important rock band of the past decade called it a day. The day the rock rainbow lost a colour. Maybe two, Maybe three. One of the most rubbish of days.

They make Gerard sound like an insecure 15 year old girl. Why are they pretending that music isn't just a bunch of ugly nerds screwing around with instruments?

They should have split after The Black Parade. That was a great record and after that they turned to shit.

Getting back to what the actual article is talking about, the more I think about it, they seemed REALLY tired when I saw them live back in 2011 (they played with Blink 182, who blew them out of the water that night)

^ I saw that same tour, and MCR absolutely blew Blink 182 out of the water. No comparison.

You must have seen them on a bad night.

I mean, if I was approaching my mid thirties and was in a band that was still producing music that attracted predominately 15 year old girls, I'd rethink my life too. Chances are they probably craved to be taken more seriously, wanted to gather a larger audience, make more mature music and it just wasn't able to happen.

that whole thing was awfully pretentious for an article about a defunct eyeliner-wearing pop punk band who catered to teenagers (and realistically, probably teenage girls at that).

I come to sputnik's main page, see this, wanted to choke someone just reading the title for this article, but now I understand why. Seems like someone should be fired from kerrang for sexually abusing MCR music.
