New Jersey's poppy emocore outfit My Chemical Romance, fronted by
vocalist Gerard Way, debuted with
I Brought You My Bullets (2002), whose sonic palette was rather
monotonous but was highlighted by introspective stories a` la
The music rose up to match the standard of the lyrics on
Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge (2004), that contained the catchy hit I'm Not OK and The Ghost of You.
My Chemical Romance's project sounded like a harder version of the old
punk-pop of bands such as Cheap Trick.
The band reached its lyrical peak with
the concept The Black Parade (2006), a sequence of songs that indirectly
paid tribute to heavy-metal and classic rock, and generally displayed a more
mature and confident posture
(Dead, The End).
Desolation Row (2009) sounds a lot like vintage
Sex Pistols with a hard-rock guitar.
The rock opera
Danger Days - The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys (2010)
has too much fluff to stand on its own musical merits,
although the hysterical rap-voodoobilly Vampire Money and the
satanic disco romp Planetary Go rank among their best revisionist ideas.
The demented power-pop single Na Na Na,
the catchy arena singalong Bulletproof Heart
and the furious metal attack Destroya are, instead, misguided attempts at
delivering the knock-out hit.
