My Chemical Romance is a music band from New Jersey that was formed in 2001 by frontman Gerard Way and drummer Matt Pelissier. Way decided to form the band shortly after witnessing the attacks of September 11. My Chemical Romance has since gained a large following through social networking on MySpace, and by offering free song downloads to fans. The band currently consists of Gerard Way, bassist Mikey Way and guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero.

My Chemical Romance released its fourth studio album, "Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys," in November 2010. The album debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 Album chart.

Their third studio album "The Black Parade" was My Chemical Romance's follow-up to their 2004 platinum major-label debut "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge," and was "way more dramatic, way more theatrical, completely over the top, borderline psychotic," says Gerard Way.

"The Black Parade" shot to No. 2 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart, selling more than 240,000 copies its first week of release, and spawned four Modern Rock smash singles. Dubbed "Album of the Year" by Blender Magazine, "The Black Parade" earned raves from critics (Rolling Stone called it "a rabid, ingenious paraphrasing of echoes and kitsch from rock's golden age of bombast," while Spin called it "savage and heartfelt") and cemented MCR's status as a world-class rock band. Following the album's release, the New Jersey-bred MCR launched The Black Parade World Tour—their longest and most comprehensive trek yet—that culminated in a triumphant hometown show at New York City's Madison Square Garden in May, 2008.

Their first studio album was "I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love" in 2002 for Eyeball Records.
