5My Chemical RomanceMy Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

They have made so many believe in themselves and that their is light at the end of the tunnel. They helped me cope with life and I am now able to help every one of my friend that needs help. They have given me so much hope and are so inspiring to others. I owe them everything. Thank you My Chemical Romance.

They should be #1, for sure. Gerard Way overcame drugs, alcohol, depression, and suicide, and encourages others to get help. My Chemical Romance has saved so many lives along their journey of 12 years, and will continue to inspire even after their breakup.

I think they should be Number One as they are extremely inspirational and has saved millions of teenage lives.

For me this is the number 1 because of this band I became a better person now.
