The one with the guitar god who doesn't seem to get enough recognition most the time?
The one with the amazing bass player with the awkward knees and a good heart?
The one with the rhythm guitarist whose laughter lights up a room?
The one with the lead vocalist who puts everything he's got into every performance?
You know the band.
The band whose lead singer was drunk for 3 straight years, and got clean in 17 days?
The band whose bass player had a mental breakdown, and still returned to record the rest of an album?
The band whose rhythm guitarist once played a show hooked up to an oxygen tank?
The band whose lead guitarist had to watch his best friends go through this and try to hold the band together at the same time?
You know that band.
My Chemical Romance.
The social rejects from New Jersey who wanted to make a difference, make some music, and maybe lower the suicide rate.

Gerard Way Quotes :D"Sometimes you have to kind of die inside in order to rise from your own ashes and believe in yourself and love yourself to become a new person. "Gerard Way Quotes :D4 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Be yourself, don't take anything from anyone, and never let them take you alive."
"Heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary."
"Hey, girls, you're beautiful. Don't look at those stupid magazines with sticklike models. Eat healthy and exercise. That's all. Don't let anyone tell you you're not good enough. You're good enough, you are too good. Love your family with all your heart and listen to it. You are gorgeous, whether you're a size 4 or 14. It doesn't matter what you look like on the outside, as long as you're a good person, as long as you respect others. I know it's been told hundreds of times before, but it's true. Hey, girls, you are beautiful."
"One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching"
"no matter how ugly the world gets or how stupid it shows me it is, I always have faith"
Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)"There’s angst but it’s different. I think we’re rebelling now as a rock band. We’re trying to keep it pure, but we’re not playing victims anymore. We’ve realized that we’re one of the youngest bands at our size. So there’s a responsibility that comes with that, whether it’s to fans or to outside listeners who aren’t fans, to be the greatest American rock band. That was the goal. And it took a while to get there, but we’re just being the best My Chemical Romance that we can be."Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
“I write them wherever I may happen to be when I get hit with inspiration. A lot of times I just make notes of sentences. What I usually do is write paragraphs of free style, just really descriptive phrases and I’ll draw upon those phrases later. I try to get the sound before I get the lyrics.”
"Freedom is a real big theme. We needed freedom to happen for us on this record so

“It’s amazing to be here with people who love music in a non-violent way. If you’re mad, don’t throw a punch, don’t start a fire about it, don’t shout about it. Sing, that’s the most powerful weapon you have.”
"I thought if we made an album that tried to change the world, or give it hope, it would really happen. But all people found was death and destruction and misery and self-hate. I learned that the world doesn't want to be saved, and it will fucking punch you in the face if you try."
"Me and my kid brother used to grow up—we used to grow up? Everybody used to grow up! We had comics, and that’s the only thing we had to escape the kind of place we lived in. And it made us lift up our heads, make

Frank.I always thought you hated this thing—the journal, I mean. You always had a look of disgust or loathing whenever you dragged this thing out. Well, you did that when I was locked in your room, when, um, the dragon (was that what you called Dr. Miller?) first got you one. I didn't really know how difficult it was for you to express your feelings then, but I began to realize when you yelled at me when I told you it was going to be okay.Frank.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ah, yes, good times.
You're probably wondering—well, if you can wonder, I'm not sure—how I exactly knew you called Miller the dragon. I walked into the bedroom after our little dispute we had Christmas day—I'm sorry about that by the way—and I saw you sleeping with Boo by your head. And in your arms was this journal. I didn't even know you still wrote in this. I always thought you just locked me out of the bedroom for several minutes a night just to be an asshole, but I guess you were writing in this.

"Yeah, obviously we use vampires as a metaphor for something else, something deeper than just the supernatural.

"Get a life."
This one would only work if you were trying to insult a dead person. May work on zombies and emo kids.
"Yeah, you keep thinking that."
This will work on zombies. It makes them feel like shit so it could count as a blow. They have no brains. This is why they want yours.
"Learn to spell."
This is good for when you are confronting a really bad wizard or when you have nothing better to say. I reccomend it in moderation.
