4 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.

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.

Amazing band that saves lives

For example, Hospital For Souls is about depression and counseling and I love the way it is portrayed, also, their new album, one of the songs is about Oli's ADHD which he has only just found out about and the lyrics are just phenomenal!

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. Alsogot involved with charitable causes before it was popular. Boil down much of Rock music over the last 50 years and you will find the Who at the bottom of the saucepan.
