I also think it's pretty weird for them as musicians; how...

MCR had a huge, monumental fan base that vastly eclipsed the negative critical opinion voiced against it.

The negative critical opinion for his new stuff has, so far, been so great, that he felt...

I don't think Gerard coming out to defend himself is BS. Let me clarify.

I think it's disingenuous for a commercial musician of Gerard's stature and knowledge to release a piece of music, let alone...
