Gerard Way Writes Letter On My Chemical Romance Break Up

Posted by - 07:06 PM on 03/24/13
Gerard Way has written a very long letter concerning the break up of My Chemical Romance.
My Chemical Romance had, built within its core, a fail-safe. A doomsday device, should certain events occur or cease occurring, would detonate. I shared knowledge of this “flaw” within weeks of its inception.
Personally, I embraced it because, again, it made us perfect. A perfect machine, beautiful, yet self aware of it’s system. Under directive to terminate before it becomes compromised. To protect the idea- at all costs. This probably sounds like something ripped from the pages of a four-color comic book, and that’s the point.
No compromise. No surrender. No fucking shit.

To me that’s rock and roll. And I believe in rock and roll.

Damn I thought I was going to get first post... Oh well. I think they wanted to make sure to stop before they began to go down hill, maybe they didn't think their new stuff was up to snuff?

Doesn't make sense. They didn't end on the high note they would have liked to (unless the warmer reception to Conventional Weapons was good enough for them), so why break up now? Danger Days is probably their least popular album.

Not that I really care either way, it just seems contradictory.

Does he need to? I thought his post made it clear that when forming the band there were essentially things in place to decide when it would end. It sounds like his heart wasn't totally in it anymore and he didn't want to act. Even without explanation, I can respect that if it is true. Too many acts drag it on for financial reasons, without totally being into it.

Then again, I could be interpreting it wrong

I think MCR is done but the band is going to go under another name. I hope they go by a name with the same acronym just like The Red Eye of Soromon.

This should have been the original message. Very MCR-like

Should've just said, "Sorry my little bro is a douchebag, guys."

jk this statement is very... them, so I like it. Who cares why they broke up? Wouldn't change the fact that it happened. Just glad I got the flawless Black Parade album from them.
