I truly think this band is one of the most inspirational bands to exist. Their lyrics have actual meaning and the band mates themselves all have their own backstories. And the fact that they did music for relief was the best part, they used their music to raise money for those in need. They also sang lots of songs about said people and said things. Overall, my favorite band.
Linkin Park is an amazing band that has changed with time. Their passion and heart has inspired me as well as countless others and kept me going in rough times. I will never forget this band.

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.
My Chemical Romance is a very talented band whose lyrics and songs have both saved many and made teenagers feel welcome and that they aren't alone. This band inspired me and still continues to do so. It makes me feel as if I finally fit in somewhere as a Killjoy and a member of the MCRmy.
I get really inspired when I listen to their music and I cry every time I realise that they aren't together anymore. It's really amazing that they could achieve these heights of fame, and the messages that some of their songs put across are absolutely amazing!
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.

An 'influencer' band. Punk, mod whilst still being standard rock influence. Power chording, Marshall stack and discouraged screaming teen girls at gigs before many others. Townshend wrote the most honest self effacIng lyrics of all, was the most intellectual of the rock Gods without losing touch with the power of pop and pop culture which he understood better than most.
