Here is my video, again I apoligize for the sick dead look/voice. I went to the Honda Civic Tour a week ago at Weatland and although it was AMAZING because I was in front at the gate, I did catch a bug.

I'm Listy, and this is how I discovered and became a fan of My Chemical Romance. I love this band! The music has really been there for me! I have always wanted to tell them this. Love you MCR! Can't wait to see you in New Orleans for Voodoo!

Sorry that the audio is off! D=
My years are slightly off (that's what I get for trying to figure it out quick...)



What I said since some was cut off:
"Hey guys, my name is Sammi and this is my short little story of how I discovered My Chemical Romance. I've done this video a few times now, but every time it ends up being, like, five-ten minutes, and that's a lot so I'm trying to really cut down. The first time I heard them I was ten, that was six years ago, around 2005 [Edit: I now realize that I was wrong... Not quite that long ago] and I heard the song Teenagers in the car with my best friend and her mom. Her mom had it on a CD that she'd gotten from a co-workers daughter, and instantly I was drawn in. It was very different from what I was listening to at the time, you know, I was ten, mostly what I was listening to was like Disney stars and Nickelodeon and all this other stuff. So to hear a band you know, besides that, and be so attracted to it was very different for me. The song Teenagers, I was very attracted to it. Its very dark, and very edgy and it was just totally different. I still haven't, you know, heard a lot of bands that can pull it off so well as My Chemical Romance. I've gone to two of their concerts now, with my friend Nicole (the one that I first have heard them with), and you know, Gerard Way is now, you know, my biggest idol. I admire him so much. When I, you know, was watching interviews about how much he'd gone through and, you know, how he'd overcome those obstacles and stuff... He, so yes, I consider him, you know, my biggest idol, besides my mom. She kinda beats you out... Sorry Gerard... Can't help that motherly... daughterly bond, I guess. But, so I heard them in the car and I went out and I bought the CD and I have all their CDs now, and I have all the music, and for the first time in my life, I have a favorite band. I have never considered myself to have a favorite band before, and I don't think I ever will in the future [Edit: As in a new favorite band]. I think My Chemical Romance will always have that just because their music is so different. And, you know, their CDs, like, they tell you a story that you can actually follow along, and I love that. Its very very different, and its something that, you know, I think everyone can like. So that's the story (and a little bit extra I guess) of how I discovered My Chemical Romance and why I like them. Bye!
{Sorry for using "like" and "you know" so much...}

This is the first video I've ever done, but its awesome to be able to share how I first heard My Chemical Romance! Gerard is one of my biggest idols and I look up to him very much! I'm actually doing an exaggerated (because it has to be seen from thirty feet away) pastel of him as Party Poison right now! I'll show the picture because I'm very proud of how it looks so far (though I have a LOOONNNGG way to go)!!

Keep in mind that he isn't close to being done yet! And I haven't even started his face yet... I'm actually dreading it. And his hair has orange streaks to emphasis the color and because the project for art needed "surprise colors" =D

I really like that painting!
Also I think i like it without a face, it looks really cool!

This is how I became a fan of My Chemical Romance. They have had a such a big influence on my life and I have so much to thank them for because even though I've never physically met them I feel like they're my friends and that they care about me. I don't feel alone anymore because I have them and their music.

Amen to that!! Their songs are my only "friends" during lonely walks around town ooor when sitting in the school hallway, feeling rejected - so I just put headphones on and I start thinking about MCR and how lucky I was for seing them once live in concert...

They're the answer to:
If there's no one, no one out there
Is there no one, no one who cares?
If there's no one, no one out there
Is there no one like you to share?


It's funny how I'm a 17year old girl living in Europe, yet I'm feeling completely the same as 34 year old Gerard Way somewhere in the USA... It gives me hope. Hope that you don't have to change yourself when you 'age' (of course, you can't tell that by looking at him:D), hope that despite all the bad things you will eventually find -and not just SOME- happiness, knowing that there are still people who discovered the real key to life, someone you can look up to, someone who tells you to be FEARLESS and they're so convincing you actually believe them and you're not afraid to keep on living, to walk this world alone...

Gaahhh, I went all emotional XD

So. Computer with no camera. Here goes:

First time I heard blink-182 was when I found an iPod in a carpark. I was coming out of a school assembly at the end of 2009 and there was this purple thing in the garden, so i took it. I handed it in but no one claimed it so I got to keep it :) I went through it and found 3 songs: Dammit, All The Small Things and I Miss You. I loved how they sounded so i looked up/got more by them, but they are still my favourites by blink-182. And let's face it, videos can't get much funnier than What's My Age Again? :)



First encountered My Chemical Romance in early 2009. I'd seen the name in a few magazines (not music ones, oddly enough) and eventually YouTubed them. Best decision music-wise I've ever made :D Their cover of Desolation Row by Bob Dylan for the Watchmen soundtrack was the first song i heard/saw. At first the video scared the heck outta me, until i noticed Frank stick his tongue out at the very end :p but after a couple of listens i decided I liked them. Looked up more of their songs and they've been my favourite band ever since :)



MCR was the first band i really got into. Listening to Bullets, Three Cheers and The Black Parade, it made me think that i wasn't the only pissed-off kid, but not to take anyone's crap either. It was kinda nice that music could make me feel like that. They're one of the reasons i took up guitar, want to work in the music industry and get tattoos :)



You wanted the passionate version. There it is :)

I definitely wasn’t being accepted in school, or anywhere else in my life, to be honest. My peers either ignored me or made fun of me. I came home from school crying a lot of the times, and although I didn’t tell my family, I felt so weak. I felt like every day was so hard to live. Every step I took was painful, but I knew I was living a life I didn’t want to lead. The few friends I had didn’t really truly accept me and I always felt like I was walking on egg-shells around them. A few of them specifically would make fun of me, call me a pig, or whatever they could think of. But I kept coming back to them, because they were the only thing I had.

Soon enough though, I found my haven. I found my safe place. I found this band that loved me no matter what; and their name was My Chemical Romance. I suddenly didn’t feel as alone in the world, because there were these five(at the time Matt was the drummer~) men who, without even knowing me, seemed to know how I felt. I was rejected, angry, I felt left-out; My Chemical Romance knew all about that. They’d lived through that, and now they were telling me, through their music, that it was time for me to be happy. It was time for me to be me, and fuck anyone that didn’t like it.

My “best friend” at the time found out I was listening to My Chemical Romance and ridiculed me every day for it. He told me they were a bunch of emo ******s who should just kill themselves. But I knew, I knew that they weren’t. I knew who they truly were, and I knew they were just these wonderful, beautiful human beings. I knew they wanted me to love myself, and they wanted me to live; that was enough for me to know they were amazing individuals. So, I never listened to him. I never let his words get to me. I never let him defeat my hope in those five men, and no one ever could.

When I got to middle school, things only got worse. Well, at first things were okay. I was doing great, actually. I had friends who I loved, they loved me, and I hung out with them a lot. They didn’t make fun of me for liking MCR, and hey, some of them even liked my favorite band! I still got made fun of sometimes, but even when I did get made fun of, it wasn’t so bad. MCR and my new friends taught me not to give a fuck, so I didn’t. but it was a christian school and most of MCR songs were not allowed to be played on an audible level.
Gateway Christian School. I will never forget that horrible fucking place. It felt like elementary all over again, but a thousand times worse; I had friends who didn’t really accept me, and every day I was putting on some kind of show just so they would think I was someone else. I had so many people bullying me I couldn’t even keep up. Not only was the bullying taking place out of class, but it was in class. I remember one time I went up to present a project in my Science class, and when I couldn’t answer one question everyone started laughing at me, and calling me stupid. I went back to my desk teary-eyed, where my “friend” told me to suck it up. The teacher didn’t do a goddamn thing.

I almost got beat up a few times I felt like no one cared for me, no one loved me, and no one gave a fuck. I was ready to just close my eyes and sleep forever and not wake up. That’s really what I wanted. I just wanted to go to sleep one night and not wake up.
i popped a bottle of painkillers and tried to end it all. As fate wold have it
I was listening to my mp3 that night, and My Chemical Romance came on shuffle. With the process of all the shit going on I’d forgot about them a little bit. I remember the song that came on was Headfirst For Halos (the first song I ever heard by them), I also remember I cried. I cried because I remembered. I remembered someone did care, someone did love me, and someone did want me to keep living. They all wanted me to keep going.

After middle school, I was scared. I was scared of being rejected, of being alone, of just…Everything. Especially of going back to school.

My high-school years should have been the best fucking years of my life. They turned out to be less than that but not terrible. Bullied alot more than i wanted to be, hospital trips, other such things. My red hair is what mostly caused all of the bullying, because it wasnt racist, it was "okay" to pick on the ginger kid. one time in my woodshp class i was locked in a room, dark, no lightswitch and was in there the entire class, until the teacher opened it up just before the bell, and yelled at me for being a trouble maker, the same teacher also never cared when the other kids picked on me in front of him, throing stuff at me, even getting yogurt on my jacket, slamming my face against the desks, kicking me, threatening me, grade 10 was the worst year in highschool, i had 3 teachers, who were all good friends and all of them thought i was going nowhere in life, and treated me like nothing.i did however have great times in highschool too!!, I have met my absolute true friends, I have felt true happiness, and I even started to learn how to love my flaws(Still working on it, but some day I will be strong enough).
but
in grade 10, kick a ginger day was made. a day that i will never forget, the one day in my entire life, where it was acceptable to hurt, maim, or injure, me just for having red hair. a nightmare to me being one out of the 12 red heads in my school, i was jumped outside school and beaten, and i was kicked 273 times. in 6 hours. for being born. but you know what? I only allow myself to be sad about it for a certain amount of time. Then I pick myself up, dust the dirt off myself and say, “Okay Ben. No big deal. You’re alright. There are five dudes that care about you, and if they were here they’d tell you how wrong the bullies are. You’re alright.” and then I feel better.

grade 12, thinking depressing, deep emotional thoughts about suicide, wearing my black parade jacket. my eyes trailed along the hallway, i see a blonde girl, looking happy with some of her friends wearing a black parade hoody, i called to her, and she gave me a hug, for a few months we considered eachother MCR buddies until in december i asked her out. December 3 2010.

Long story short; My Chemical Romance has taught me how to be myself, how to be happy, how to smile and how to say fuck off. They have taught me that life is beautiful, and life is worth living. With the help of them, and of course my friends who helped me a lot as well, I learned how to live. (And let’s not forget my understanding, loving family and Girlfriend Sierra

So, thank you, MCR. Thank you. You may never know why I love you all so much, but at least a few people will know why~
