Growing Popularity of My Chemical Romance

Dec 12, 2007
My Chemical Romance is one of the newer popular American bands out there on the market. The band was formed shortly after the terrorist attacks that occurred September 11, 2001. The lead singer, Gerard Way, was so touched by his firsthand witnessing of the planes crashing into the World Trade Center towers that he wrote a song about it called "Skylines and Turnstiles."

It wasn't long after he wrote that song that My Chemical Romance became a reality. Slowly the band picked up members, from Matt Pelissier to Ray Toro and Mikey Way, and slowly My Chemical Romance became a reality.

Then drummer Matt Pelissier hosted recording sessions right in his home. In Pelissier's attic, creations like "Our Lady of Sorrows" and even "Cubicles" went from idea into reality. The band garnered thousands of fans by networking through MySpace, eventually landing their dream of signing a real record deal in 2002 with Eyeball Records. At that point the band had caught up with their new guitarist Frank Lero. He was originally of the band Pency Prep, but the band had become dismantled, giving Lero the freedom to bring a little something extra to My Chemical Romance.

The band went on to sign with Reprise Records the following year in 2003 and even released their second album, "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge." Although they only released three singles from it, My Chemical Romance's sophomore album went platinum within the year. Matt Pelissier was no longer the drummer for the band because of some argument with one of the other band members, and Bob Bryar had stepped in to take over. They have opened for Green Day, been on the Vans Warped Tour, and even had tours of their own.

A sign of true success in the music industry, My Chemical Romance released its own DVD or CD box set called "Life on the Murder Scene." There is a DVD with all the ins and outs of the band and another DVD with music videos and band footage, as well as a CD included.

The third CD for My Chemical Romance is currently in the works, and there is word that it is nearing completion. They are often classified as rock, emo, or alternative music, but My Chemical Romance was created with a purpose, and they have stuck to their original vision rather closely. They received their first exposure through Myspace, yes, but My Chemical Romance has made it through the Internet into a popular and successful presence in the music industry.
