Three Cheers for My Chemical Romance

I know they have some fans here. Let's appreciate.

My first comment, which I posted in the Snow Patrol thread, is that the new video for Helena is gothtastic. I really, really like it. I liked the video for I'm Not Okay (I Promise) too.

It took some convincing to even get me to give them a chance, but I'm glad I finally did. They're the perfect example of a band who you cant judge soley (that doesnt look like it's spelled correctly) from their lead single. Enjoyable stuff, and HLG is right about the video for 'Helena' being extremely cool.

MCR ROCKS!!!

I bought Three Cheers... in the summer and it was all I could listen to. In fact, I couldn't get past Helena for almost a week, I kept hitting 'repeat' to hear it again and again. Finally I skipped Track 1 altogether so I could hear the rest of the album. If you listen to the lyrics, it's got this kind of modern-day Bonnie and Clyde theme running through it. My favourites: Helena (obviously), Thank You for the Venom, Hang 'Em High, and To the End - but I think all the songs are really good.

I haven't seen the video for Helena, I hope it's on the 'Net somewhere. Gothtastic...

So long and goodnight....

Glad you saw the video, lmj.

As soon as I heard Helena, I didn't regret buying the album, no matter what else was on it. The Ghost of You is my favorite and sealed the deal for me loving this album. I think I Never Told You What I Do for a Living is the perfect closer. So many good tunes on there.

Me too! I'm afraid I may be addicted to it now! I'm really enjoying watching Gerard flicking his hair! Yeah, it's cheesy.

I asked them if I could listen to it in the store before I decided to buy it. I hadn't even finished listening to Helena before I took the headphones off and said, "I'll take it!"

I heard a little bit of I Gave You My Bullets... but nothing really jumped out at me. It sounded a bit rough around the edges. The songs on Three Cheers sound a lot more put together.

FYI, Yahoo LAUNCH loves them lately and has 2 performance videos up of them in their studio. One of 'Helena' and one of 'I'm Not Okay'. Enjoyable if you're a fan.

I love this band. So much so that I am going to Green Day almost more for them than for Green Day.....almost I say because I really want to see Green Day as well.

With that said, my favorite song on the album is "The Ghost Of You".

Same here! Actually, it IS more for them than Green Day. I saw Green Day when they played here years ago. The ONLY reason I decided to go this time was because of MCR.

Two items of note for MCR fans.

For those of you with MTV2, they have been playing (and replaying) two shows featuring MCR. The first is the Two Dollar Bill concert, which is MCR and The Used live at Niagara Falls. MCR play 'I'm Not Okay (I Promise)' and 'Helena,' then do a cover of David Bowie and Freddie Mercury's 'Under Pressure' together with The Used at the end of the show.

They are also showing 'My Chemical Romance Makes a Video' which shows the making of the 'Helena' video.

I would tape them for you, but I am too stupid to figure out why my VCR is only taping static from the television. I need to fix that.
