Hitting It Big—Worldwide
Multi-platinum band My Chemical Romance grace this month's catalog fresh from a back-to-back tour packed with songs from their fourth studio album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. The New Jersey rockers have soared to the heights of fame in just over a decade. The band's music is heard on stages around the world and across pop culture—from video games to soundtracks and TV shows.
From the start, the band's goal was to make a difference—a fervor born from tragedy. They formed in 2001, only one week after 9/11. Lead singer Gerard Way was commuting to his job as a commercial artist when he witnessed the attacks firsthand. Shock proved to be one potent chemical when he and his bandmates drew on their grief for musical inspiration.
Today, My Chemical Romance remains true to the inspiration behind their performances—from hard rock anthems to award-winning stage theatrics.
