What is My Chemical Romance?

For most, it's a once intolerable life, now saved by a single song lyric. It's being that kid sitting alone at lunch with a new-found pride in the Black Parade lyrics sprawled across their chest.
For many, My Chemical Romance truly is the savior of the broken, the beaten, and the damned. Never before has a group of fans been able to truly, and honestly admit that a band is the reason they are still here today. It's pretty much impossible to explain that surreal connection you feel to every word Gerard belts out on the new CD you've had on repeat for the last 8 hours.

Loving MCR isn't an obsession. It's not a fad. It's the feeling of knowing that, as long as there are other Killjoys walking the earth, you will never have to feel alone again. I'm proud to be apart of some of the toughest, most faithful family in the world. I know I'm not alone in saying that my only goal in life is to be able to walk up to Gee, Mikey, Ray, Bob and even Frank, and (after being revived from fainting and probably pissin my pants), simply tell them, "Thank you".

My Chemical Romance brings out the pride of living in all who take the time to really listen to the lyrics; hanging on every note. An MCR fan is someone who's been picked on. Someone who's always been misunderstood. Someone who's never felt an ounce of pride or dignity until they heard the sound of Sweet Revenge. An MCR fan will undoubtedly be the most faithful person you'll ever have the pleasure of knowing. People can say nearly anything they want about an MCR fan, and never hear a single word against it. But God have mercy on anyone with the nerve to say anything ignorantly derogatory about My Chemical Romance near a devoted fan.

So if while reading this you felt your pulse speed up, and had to refrain from excitedly yelling in agreement, you know you're a true Survivor. Never forget that having that sweet collection (or shrine) of My Chem Merch is nothing short of pure devotion. I think it's safe to say that you're all with me when I say the Black Parade isn't, and never will be, dead.
I don't know why I wrote this.
I suddenly felt the need to try to thank them for all they've done for me, and thousands of others like me.

I hope you agree. (:

I totally agree!! Everything you said was true. Except they haven't saved my life, they saved my sanity. I know that without them, I would have probably done stupid things or have gone insane from boredom without them!!! XD

I love how much the band has grown itself. I used to listen to them when I was sad and depressed (Bullets, Three Cheers)...now I listen to em when I'm happy (Danger Days!)

I listen to them when I'm sad, AND happy (; ahaha
But yes, it's amazing how much they change and grow with every album.
Putting Bullets and Danger Days back to back, if you didn't know any better, you'd never guess it was the same band.
I love it. haha

Yaa, the difference in sound from Bullets to Danger Days is insane! It took a few times listening through Danger Days for me to adjust. They were so raw on that first album. Personally, I feel like they went a liiiiittle too pop-ish on Danger Days, but my never ending crush on the band allows me to ignore that lol. Three Cheers was their best in my opinion...but I only feel like that because Three Cheers was the album that made me start listening to them, and Rock in general :)

I totally agree, I think they kind of overdid it with Danger Days; I still haven't COMPLETELY embraced all the new songs. lol Three Cheers was an AMAZING album! But to me Black Parade will be the album they'll never be able to top. Ironic, that's the album that got me into them (; haha

Eh, I used to like that band, but then I grew up and I got different tastes. I'll still rock out to their songs on the radio from time to time.

It's great that you like a band and all, i just wouldn't ever understand how you can devote your love and attention to people who don't know you exist. Adore the music, i hate the way it's all about image now

Either way, this is well put together, well done.

Well thank you for the constructive criticism (:
I know it's hard to understand, most people don't.
But however far-fetched it seems, I swear it's true; every word. haha

Personally, I'm not a huge MCR fan. I like them, but there are bands I like more. Despite that, I can't deny that I've never seen a band with a more dedicated and loyal fan base. It's incredible the impact their music has had on people. Really, I don't think there's a band that will endure longer than MCR.

Excuse me while I go upstairs and smile at my shrine...some people I'm friends with make fun of them and I have to refrain from punching them in the jaw. MCR is always there for us. I love them so much.
