My Chemical Romance has saved me in more ways than one and there are many more people who can say that same thing. As a group, they are not solely focused on how popular they are on the radio or how many hits they got on a new single, they put out music that they've put heart into and the band members have said themselves, they are a band who wants to save your life.

Forever a Killjoy

This band is the reason I'm still here. They've helped me through the best of times, and the worst. I wouldn't be here without them. I'm a Killjoy in the MCR my for life, and I honestly don't care which band wins, because MCR will always be the best band in the world to me.

So absolutely amazing! You can count me into the number of people whose lives these amazing people have saved. Without them, and just a couple other things right now, I wouldn't be typing this.

This is a band who was started to save people, most definitely I think My Chemical Romance should win. What with all they have done for the fans

5 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

They don't have an exact genre. They normally do rock but I've heard some songs by them that don't fit the genre.
Their lyrics are meaningful.
"If I told you what I was/ would you turn your back on me? / and if I seemed dangerous/ would you be scared? " And then later in the song "I'm only a man with a candle to guide me/ I'm taking a stand to escape what's inside me/ a monster, a monster, I've turned into a monster" - Monster
"It's who we are/ doesn't matter if we've gone too far/ doesn't matter if its all okay/ doesn't matter if its not our day" - who we are
"With our backs to the wall/ darkness will fall/ we never quite thought we could lose it all" - Ready Aim Fire
And they have a song for every mood. Radioactive is one of their most popular songs and it's very... Angry/determined sounding.
I bet my life is regretful.
On top of the world is pure happiness there's no other description.
Their songs all have morals.
