Transcript of My Chemical Romance project

By Miriam Pedersen My Chemical Romance In 2004, they fired their drummer Matt Pelissier
Matt's place was taken by Bob Bryar (pictured on the far left), who had been a drum tech for a band called The Used that MCR used to tour with
They wrote such songs like "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)"--letting kids out there know that's okay to not be okay, and that these guys are just like them
Throughout this and the last era, Gerard was addicted to drugs, alcohol, and self-harm
Fortunately, he became sober in August 2006 REVENGE ERA- 2003-2006 Big turning point for the band-- first era where Gerard was going to be sober and not harming himself
Wrote songs like Famous Last Words-- "I am not afraid to keep on living, I am not afraid to walk this world alone"
He let kids know in this song (and throughout the whole album) that nothing is ever worth taking your life or hurting yourself over At the beginning of this era, they lost yet another drummer, this time Bob Bryar.
They wrote songs like "Sing"--"sing it out, boy you've got to see what tomorrow brings. Sing it out, girl you've got to be what tomorrow needs. For every time that they want to count you out, use your voice every single time you open up your mouth."
This song told kids that they need to keep living, that tomorrow could hold better things. They also voiced that no matter what, stand up and state your opinion.
Recorded an alternate version of Sing, naming it #SingItForJapan, the title being a hashtag from twitter
It was sold on iTunes, and all of the proceeds went to helping the victims of the 2010 Japan tsunami On September 14th, their guitarist Frank Iero posted on their website that they would be releasing five collections of two songs each over five months
They are called the Conventional Weapons Sessions
They recorded these even before Danger Days in 2009, but at the time, it wasn't what they were looking for and scrapped it
Wrote songs like "The Light Behind Your Eyes"--"If I could be with you tonight, I would sing you to sleep. Never let them take the light behind your eyes. I’ll fail and lose this fight. Never fade in the dark; just remember you will always burn as bright." CONVENTIONAL WEAPONS--TODAY BLACK PARADE ERA--2006-2008 EARLY CAREER/BULLETS ERA--2001-2002 Seeing people die in the 9/11 tragedy, Gerard Way was moved and inspired to do something
He and his friends eventually made an album named I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love
They recorded songs like "Skylines and Turnstiles"--inspired by the tragedy in New York City
This was the first song they ever wrote, the first line being "you're not in this alone"; they wanted to send a message to fans out there that they're never alone, there is help, and they will be okay DANGER DAYS ERA--2009-2012 THE NAME The bassist and brother to Gerard Way, Mikey Way, found a collection of three novellas by Irvine Welsh named Ecstasy: Three Tales Of Chemical Romance Above: Mikey Way Right: MCR fan art Left: some of the theatrics at a show for
The Black Parade. Gerard has stated
that they are a very visual band, and
they really like to get the audience
involved in the performance. From L to R: Frank Iero (guitar, backing vocals), Gerard Way (lead vocals), Mikey Way (bass), Ray Toro (guitar, backing vocals)
