About:

My Chemical Romance rose to prominence in the US mainstream in 2003. The band, which formed two years earlier, broke with their second record Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge. The band's combination of anthemic and increasingly theatrical songs with a look borrowed from goth made them popular with post-millennial pop-punk and emo movements.

The group is fronted by Gerard Way and features lead guitarist Ray Toro, rhythm guitarist Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way and drummer Bob Bryar.
