Top 10 Best American Rock Bands

The Contenders: Page 8

141 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My 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.

People tend to forget that music isn't just about what appeals to your ear, it's about what the artist is saying and how they say it. My Chemical Romance isn't just a band. It is an art, a way of life. They don't just make great music. They teach people to live through the tough times and to keep their chins up. Whatever you're looking for, they have. From their awesome costumes and album themes to their deep poetic lyrics and unique sound. Not to mention how humble they all are, compared to some bands. This band has gotten many people, including myself, through dark times. The entire My Chemical Romance fandom is literally like a family. And I am most definitely proud to be a part of that family. I am saddened, though, that this band has been placed #99. For everything they have done, for all the lives they saved through their music, for everything they had stood for, they definitely deserve to be placed in the top 10. For those of you who aren't familiar with My Chemical Romance, ...more

Sorry Charlies, but bands like Evanescence, Korn, and Paramore are actually a hundred times more inspirational and deserve to be at the very top! I'm just saying Johnathan Davis from korn and Amy Lee from Evanescence are extremely better singers and writers. They write and sing about real deep stuff and they have the real unique and special talents. My Chemical Romance is just crappy and whiney and they don't have any special talents at all, because they suck butt!

Right, because "The Black Parade" isn't a deep concept album about someone coping with the fact that they're dying of cancer. While I agree that Amy Lee is tremendously talented as she isn't only a great singer/songwriter, but she also composed classical music. But saying that the Members of My Chemical Romance are talentless is a disgrace to music. - MyLocalRoyalVampire
