Fair enough having emo in the genre section, but not only is it the first genre listed, "alternative rock" is removed despite it always being there. Fix it to how it was please. (talk) 13:36, 2 November 2013 (UTC)


The band is primarily alternative rock. I personally am not comfortable having emo be the first genre cited. It gives the wrong idea. 4 listed genres isn't that bad. I won't change it at the risk of a potential citation. Either replace emo with alternative rock, or let them sit side-by-side. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:43, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

I think this is a terrible MISCONCEPTION. The genres listed are "Alternative rock, emo, pop punk, post-hardcore" My Chem site some influences being: Morrissey, David Bowie, Iron Maiden, The Misfits, The Pixies, Queen, Nirvana, Radiohead (many others). The band may have emerged during the "emo" phase but they had always denied that association. From Black Parade and towards the end, they were more of a modern rock and roll band than anything else.

Alternative Rock- sure.
Emo- No.
Pop Punk- One song? (It's not Okay).
Post-hardcore - no (what?).  — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:17, 6 April 2015 (UTC) 

Edit request, 24 November 2013[edit]

Shouldn't someone delete the term 'posthumous', as we are talking about a disbanded band, not a deceased person? (talk) 17:13, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Done. Thanks. --Stfg (talk) 18:34, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

The band did not form after 9/11[edit]

Court documents from when Matt sued the band show that Matt and Gerard started the band on or before 1 September 2001. He has also claimed that a lot of the band history is made up lies to make them look better. So this would seem to support this fact.

I'd recommend someone making serious changes to the paragraph detailing the beginnings of the band. Or at least to mention at the beginning that there is evidence to suggest the band was formed before 9/11.

Not sure if I can link to the court document, but a simple google search will show it for you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:10, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 25 March 2014[edit]

James Dewees, their former keyboardist, is not listed as a member. In their greatest hits album, May Death Never Stop You, he is listed as a member. Zebthunder (talk) 02:08, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Not done: In this article, Dewees, and several others, are listed as "Touring Members". In the May Death Never Stop You article (which is not a reliable source) he is listed as an "additional musician" along with lots of others, Neither of these appear to make him a "Member" - perhaps you can find a reliable source to back up your request? - Arjayay (talk) 10:03, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Not sure how to use the booklet as a source but it lists him as a member along with the 6 others, with a page dedicated to him. Gerard posted a letter about the last song, which appears on that release. ""I consider Fake Your Death to be the 'last MCR song', and to me, it is absolutely the final fully realized collaboration between the members of the band,". James Dewees has full writing credits for that track and so it's heavily implied he's a member. (The song originally started as an idea for his solo project, before him/Gerard worked on the skeleton of the song further). Link to that: It also states "These statements were contributed by the members of the band and reflect their personal thoughts on the songs (dispersed to members at random)" James Dewees contributes one of the statements in the booklet, so Gerard considers him to be a member at the least. I'm all for listing James as a member after the band themselves seem to think so, and the booklet confirms this. Nitromaster (talk) 15:15, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Bands Associated[edit]

frnkiero and the cellabration should be added to list of associated bands, this is Frank Iero'S new band AmazingNicola (talk) 17:43, 6 August 2014 (UTC)


Hi, I'd like an administrator to take emo off of the genre list. MCR have said many times they are not an 'emo' band. Please take it off, and add light metal or something if another genre is nessasary

Thanks TheBlackParadeMCRAA (talk) 17:33, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Edit Request: New Studio Album[edit]

Just wanted to add that they have their new Album out called May Death Never Stop You. Even though it is a compilation CD, there was a new song added to it and never before heard demos. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:33, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Victor Ihab (talk) 13:24, 21 December 2014 (UTC) Discography Main article: My Chemical Romance discography See also: List of songs recorded by My Chemical Romance Studio albums

We can clearly add their fifth album into the band's discography list entitled 'Conventional Weapons' released in 2013. We can also hyperlink it to redirect to the following page:

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: A comment has been placed in the article saying that this album should not be placed in the article, as it's not a studio album and is already in the discography article. George Edward CTalkContributions 13:49, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Post-break-up and May Death Never Stop You (2013–present)[edit]

2601:8:8C00:3000:C953:7D5A:37B4:14D9 (talk) 19:27, 15 January 2015 (UTC) Just a quick edit that needs to be made. The album "May Death Never Stop You" has material spanning their entire career. It is not spreading their entire career. Thank You

Bob Bryar[edit]

Could any one of you (any editors who see this and have an interest in this article) please check the Bob Bryar article, it's a really embarrassing disaster especially after a recent edit. I don't even know why that article was recreated, it was supposed to be a redirect because people who are only notable for being in one band get redirected to the band article -- but it was repeatedly recreated and I don't have the interest to have edit wars over this (not that edit wars are ever okay). I'm sorry for this angry message but I'd be really glad if someone who isn't me would save that article (from being an embarrassment). — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 17:15, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

See also: the article's history. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 17:20, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Done. Simply hit "undo" in the history for edits like that. Massachusettsan (talk) 20:20, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
