- 2. I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love
Genre: Rock Debut(First) AlbumRelease Date: July 23, 2002
A very dark album that shows the dark side of people when in depression or certain shades of sadness. It is a good album to listen to if you are feeling depressed and need a song to express your feelings. Is considered a very typical album for a rock band in New Jersey. Rated 2 and stars. Singles include Honey This Mirror Isnt Big Enough For The Two Of Us, Headfirst For Halos, and Vampires Will Never Hurt You. The song Skylines and Turnstiles was the first song My Chemical Romance had ever written. The lead singer Gerard Way had written that song when he saw the smoke coming from 9/11 to express his true feelings. The guitarists, Frank Iero and Ray Toro, never played together on the same track. Ray- 3-7,9,10. Frank- 2,8,11. Frank was sadly unable to play in very many songs because he joined the band only a few days before they released the album. Music videos were made for the songs Honey This Mirror Isnt Big Enough For The Two Of Us and Vampires Will Never Hurt You. This is the only album that Matt Pelissier drums in.
- 3. Three cheers for sweet revenge
Genre: RockSecond AlbumRelease Date: June 8, 2004
Another very dark album that tells a very dark and scary, but meaningful story. This album focuses on the brutal side of people. The album is rated 4 stars. The singles include Im Not Okay, Thank You For The Venom, The Ghost of You, and Helena. Despite the four singles, only three singles had music videos made for them. The single that did not get a music video was Thank You For The Venom. Music videos were made for the songs Im Not Okay, The Ghost of You, and Helena. The album opened with the song Helena. Which was a song about lead singer Gerard Ways grandma that had recently passed away at that time. Her name was Elena Way. During the recording of this album the band changed drummers from Matt Pelissier to Bob Bryar. Everyone in the band played in all the songs.
- 4. The Black Parade
Genre: Alternative Fourth Album Release Date: October 23, 2006
My Chemical Romances third album The Black Parade was by far the most successful. People are unsure whether it was because they changed their music style to a more alternative style, or the theatricalness of the album that made it so successful. The singles include Welcome To The Black Parade, I Dont Love You, Teenagers, and Famous Last Words. All the singles got music videos. Oddly at the beginning or the end of the album the band did not put the song Welcome To The Black Parade. Which was the most popular and meaningful song. It was also the only song the band has ever named their album after. Instead, MCR opened with a song called The End. Which happens to be a sequel to the last album, because it occurs at a funeral. The song then ends with a unnoticeable transition to the song Dead!. The transition was made so that the songs appeared to be linked together as if it were only one song. Somewhere in the middle beginning of the album the song Welcome To The Black Parade plays. The song is about a man who is dying relatively young. And since he has done nothing special or memorable in his life, the memory that take him away from death is a memory from when he was a boy and his father took him to see a parade. The song begins with the lines When I was, a young boy , my father took me into the city, to see a marching band.. Also in the music video it shows The Patient dying in the hospital and when he dies all of a sudden he is in the memory of him and his father at the parade. The album ends with a revert back to rock song Famous Last Words to sum up the album. Though if you buy the whole album youll find a hidden track called Blood. The song starts at 1:30.The album variety has a huge range, it goes from a heavy metal song to a song with just a piano and some singing. And to top it all off, through The Black Parade is Dead! tour they claimed that MCR was dead and that The Black Parade was filling in for them.
- 5. The Lost Album
Genre: Unknown Fourth (technically) Album Release Date: Unknown
In an interview with My Chemical Romance, they talk about an album they recorded after The Black Parade, but before Danger Days: The True Lives of The Fabulous Killjoys. It was never released because the band decided that they didnt like it and it all felt too forced. MCRs rhythm guitarist Frank Iero saysthat he wants the album to be their epitaph, and release it when the band breaks up. This way it will be the last album My Chemical Romance ever released.
- 6. Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys
Genre: Alternative Fourth Album Release Date: November 22, 2010
In this album My Chemical Romance go above and beyond Alternative, they turn into sort of a punk-pop mix. This proved that critics who thought MCR was going to release an even Blacker Parade wrong. Though the album is rated Alternative, throughout the album there are still plenty of rock mixes. Lead singer Gerard Way says unlike the other albums there is no story behind the album. The songs themselves are very down-to-the-point, self-explanatory. The story is kind of like a comic book, and a different point of view of the modern day world in the future. This the comic book part was because Gerard had been working on his comic book The Umbrella Academy before writing and recording the album. The singles of the album include Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na), Planetary (Go!), Bulletproof Heart, and Sing. All these singles have music videos. In the futuristic world the band have a band of bandits called the Killjoys. They give themselves nicknames such as: Gerard Way- Party Poison, Frank Iero- Fun Ghoul, Mikey Way- Kobra Kid, Ray Toro- Jet Star. Also, throughout the album there is a man named Dr. Deathdefying. He checks-up on you after a couple songs. During the middle of recording the album the bands old drummer Bob Bryar left, no reason was given why. Causing the band to have to find a new temporary replacement drummer, Michael Pedicone.
