Sabrina Y. Vega Musical Group: My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance I Brought You My Bullets,
You Brought Me Your Love Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge Danger Days:
The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys The Black Parade Conventional Weapons The End My Chemical Romance is a well known band, formed in New Jersey, USA. They first surfaced up in 2002 with their debut album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. Their third album, The Black Parade (released in 2006), was their most famous and well known album. Gerard Way formed the band with drummer Matt Pelissier, about a week after witnessing the September 11 attacks in New York City. Skylines and Turnstiles was the first official song from My Chemical Romance, written by Gerard Way, based off of seeing the 9/11 attacks. My Chemical Romance recorded their debut album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love in 2002. They released the album to Eyeball Records, thus receiving more attention. Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge is the second studio album that My Chemical Romance recorded. The genre had changed a bit, but the second album had hit the charts hard, compared to the first one. It was #28 on the U.S. Billboard, and #34 on the UK Albums Chart in 2004. This album holds two popular songs from the band, Helena, and I'm Not Okay (I Promise). After returning from a tour in Japan in July 2004, My Chemical Romance replaced Matt Pelissier with Bob Bryar. The Black Parade was the most popular and well known album, compared to the fourth album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. The Black Parade contains one of My Chemical Romance's most well known songs, Welcome to the Black Parade. This album was rated #2 on the U.S. Billboard, UK Albums Chart, and the Canadian Albums Chart. Conventional Weapons is a compilation album being released by My Chemical Romance between October 2012 and February 2013. On September 18, 2012, Frank Iero confirmed this through the band's official website. The album consists of ten unreleased songs that were recorded in 2009, prior to the making of Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. Five singles (each including two songs) will be released once a month from October 2012 to February 2013. I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love peaked to #129 on the UK Albums Chart in 2002. After The Black Parade was recorded, My Chemical Romance took a big 6 year break from the studio. They had pre recorded other songs that didn't make it to Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, but as soon as Na Na Na was written, they had the whole album build itself up. This album was a big change from their known genre, being alternative rock. Nonetheless this album recieved a lot of positive reviews. It was ranked #13 on the Canadian Albums Chart, #14 on the UK Albums Chart, and #8 on the U.S. Billboard. Number One and Number Two have been released.

Number One contains Boy Division and Tomorrow's Money.

Number Two contains Gun. and AMBULANCE.

Number Three is scheduled to be released on December 18th, 2012, with The World Is Ugly and The Light Behind Your Eyes.

Number Four is scheduled to be released on January 8th, 2013, with Kiss the Ring and Make Room!!!!.

Number Five is scheduled to be released on February 5th, 2013, with Surrender the Night and Burn Bright. How It All Started The band My Chemical Romance started when Gerard Way (lead singer), was heading to work on 9/11. He was delayed, but was able to watch the two buildings tumble down. This view gave him a new eyesight to the world, and thus the band My Chemical Romance was created. The name My Chemical Romance was chosen by Gerard Way’s little brother, Mikey Way. He is the bass guitar player in the band, and was working at Barnes & Nobles when he came across a book by Irvine Welsh, named Ecstasy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance. Getting Together Gerard Way formed the band with drummer Matt Pelissier, about a week after witnessing the September 11 attacks. It’s said that the My Chemical Romance song Skylines and Turnstiles was the first official song from My Chemical Romance, written by Gerard Way. Since he couldn’t yet perform singing while playing the guitar, they recruited Ray Toro. After My Chemical Romance recorded demos in Pelissier’s attic, little brother Mikey Way dropped out of college and joined the band. Once they joined Eyeball Records, they met Frank Iero, the lead vocalist and guitarist for Pencey Prep. Once Pency Prep split up in 2002, Iero joined My Chemical Romance. Before the band, Mikey Way had never seriously considered a career in music. In fact, he learned to play the bass guitar just for the band.

Frank Iero, their rhythm guitarist and background vocalist, joined the band days before they were going to record their debut album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. They released the album in 2002 to Eyeball Records, receiving more attention. The 9/11 attacks were an attempt to bring down the USA in 2001. Osama Bin Laden, a terrorist from the middle east, lead the four suicide attacks in New York City and the Washington, D.C. areas. On that morning, 19 terrorists from the Islamist militant group, the Al-Qaeda, hijacked four passenger jets. The hijackers intentionally flew two of those planes into the World Trade Center, commonly known as the Twin Towers in Manhattan, New York. The hijackers also intentionally crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and intended to pilot the fourth hijacked jet into the United States Capitol Building, commonly known as the White House in Washington, D.C.; the plane crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers attempted to take control of the jet from the hijackers. Nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks.
