12 years... what an adventure Killjoys. What an adventure. Take me back, please.
Know more about this awesome band here and read up on their Wikipedia.
To me, I had to declare that I had only know about the band back when it was 2010, the day they released Danger Days - and guess what? The incredible album ended up on my top favourites list of the year and it made me listen to their past hits. What happened there, was history. Who could ever forget this awesome band, which everyone has almost heard for at least once.
A SHORT HISTORY ABOUT THEM:
My Chemical Romance (MCR), was an alternative rock band that was formed back in 2001. The band consisted of bassist Mikey Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank lero, and the unforgettable lead vocalist Gerard Way. Their fourth studio album, Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys was their final album, and it was released back in 2010. MCR has gained positive reviews of their career, and despite their success, they announced their break-up on 22nd March, 2013.
MY FAVOURITE SONG FROM THEM:
Teenagers: This song kills every other ones, at least for me. Though not a very memorable song, MCR produces what I can possibly say, the best rendition of particularly radioactive songs and Teenagers however, was not actually (to me) almost never meant for radio. With lyrics containing absurd profanity and great tuning to instruments, this song is hell of a blast. My Chemical Romance knows their audience - they plays it for their audience, and they control the tastes of their sound. To me, that is what you would call an amazing band. From the start, Teenagers doesn't leave your ears and takes almost three times for you to get all the lyrics right. For that, MCR, well done. Love this song as always man!
THEIR MOST SUCCESSFUL SINGLE:
Welcome to the Black Parade: This is the song that made me fall in love with them - instantly. Great vocals from Gerard, one of the best in his career and the amazing backdrop of guitars and drums that lives up to this song as the defining moment for My Chemical Romance. Though this, as some might call it, 'emo trashbag song', is a false lie and in fact, is even ten times better than more alternate rock bands out there in the music industry. No other band, I repeat, no other band can consolidate their position and learn from their mistakes than My Chemical Romance. Daring, proven and one of the greatest bands of all-time, they have my greatest respects and I will still listen to them until today.
MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE TO ME:
To me, MCR is more than just a rock band or any other sort. They take material and carve it with whatever they have, transforming from a little slumber to a giant enormous wave. The best learns from them, and though I don't feel as sad as I should, they have still been a part of my life wherever I've been. They have helped me go through some nasty times and for that, MCR will always be there whenever. Thousands of fans mourn your departure, but Killjoys never die.
LISTEN TO MCR (MY PICKS):
Na Na Na, Famous Last Words, Helena, SING, I Don't Love You, Planetary (GO!) and The Kids From Yesterday.
KILLJOYS NEVER DIE.
