"One day your life will flash before

your eyes, make sure it's worth

watching" - Gerard Way.

"The difference we wanna make is, number one, to let the kids now that they’re not alone, that they’re actually not that messed up and that they can do whatever they want. They can express themselves however they want without be persecuted or called a faggot or some kind of racist thing. And you know, and really just to get people to get over their stuff so they can live. Like, living’s very important. It’s more important to keep yourself alive, there’s nothing worth even hurting yourself over. I mean, I’m a person that goes through a lot of depression, and stress and things like that. I’m generally happier these days. But I have, it’s normal, it’s completely normal to be depressed so, uhm, I think it’s good to have a support group, it’s good to have people you can call, it’s good to talk to your folks… uhm, I think it’s just important that you keep yourself alive, you just stay fighting. Because it actually isn’t that bad. I mean, we started this band thinking the world was extremely ugly and I think now we realise that it’s more beautiful than we thought, and I think our music is now reflective of that. So, if anything you can take it from a guy and his band who used to think everything was a shit, and we’ve found that it’s not." - Gerard Arthur Way


“If you’ve been a fan of the band for a long time, you know we’ve always talked about suicide, depression, things of that nature. And we’ve always told you that if things feel so desperate, and you’re so hurt, you’re so depressed, you find some person that you trust to talk to. That’s something we’ve always said. But what we’re going to say to you today is, that if you find yourself depressed, hurt, like an outcast, like the only kind of place you could ever fit in is in a show like this, that’s not the case. ‘Cause even though we’re all outcasts in our own way we all belong to this world and we all fit in to this world. Do you understand me? We all have something to say, but you never ever say it with violence.” - Gerard Way



“When we first started out I had a really big issue and a lot of my loved ones had a really big issue with the fact that I was totally in pain up there and there was a time when I tried to hurt myself off stage, but I got over that. Like, you should never want to hurt yourself. You should love yourself. Sometimes you have to kind of die inside in order to rise from your own ashes and believe in yourself and love yourself and become a new person and I think that that is going to be a lot of what the next record is about, not to plug it or anything. Like, it's going to talk about dying and coming back to become what you totally want to become. We are all becoming what we want to become.” ― Gerard Way


“Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections.”
― Gerard Way


“Making a record is a lot like surgery without an anesthetic. You first have to cut yourself up the middle. Then you have to rip out every single organ, every single part and lay them on a table. You then need to examine the parts, and the reality of the situation hits you. You find yourself saying things like "I didn't know that part was so ugly." Or "I better get a professional opinion about that." You go to bed hollow and then back into the operating room the next day... facing every fear, every disgusting thing you hate about yourself. Then you pop it all back in, sew yourself shut and perform... you perform like your life depended on it ---- and in those perfect moments you find beauty you never knew existed. You find yourself and you friends all over again, you find something to fight for, something to love. Something to show the world.”
― Gerard Way


"It's fullfilling to be a good person, I think." - Frank Iero


“I don't think having a My Chemical Romance action figure will make a kid start his own band, I like to think that it will make him save children from a burning building.”
― Gerard Way


"A part of living your life, is to fuck up." - Frank Iero

"We are a generation told not to try too hard. The world is going to shit, so why break a sweat? We are reminded daily not to trust our gut or follow our hearts, your dreams are unattainable and unrealistic... the band almost fell victim to this "just good enough" mentality and would have never been able to forgive ourselves. You, the fans, deserved better and us as artists deserved better. Fear is the eternal enemy. If they can keep you scared, they can keep you controlled. We too came face to face with this saboteur, and found the strength to break through and carry on. We are here as a reminder that the world is not better off without you."

 "You can and should do Anything."
 "if you take anything away from this record, please let it be the strength to be passionate."
 "Love what you do and who you truly are. Be willing to die for it. If you are true to yourself, you can never go wrong."

- Frank Iero (About Danger Days: the True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys)

“It’s less about the bullies, and more about the victory of giving people like us a voice. And anyway, the bully is usually the guy that stays in the same town, lives in the town, fucks in the town, drinks in the town, dies in the town… whereas, it’s usually the kid whose wearing black in the corner that ends up doing something significant.” — Gerard Way.

“I think it’s human nature to be curious about “Why?” And what does this all mean, why are we here, what are we doing? And, at the same time, you can’t let it overcome you. You know? Because, really, it’s just as simple as just — at least for me, it’s “to make the world a different place.” I think the worst thing you can do is to live your life and have the world be the exact same place it was before.” — Frank Iero.

"You cannot, and I’m serious, you CANNOT be ashamed of who you are, no matter how much shit you get for it, or how much bullying you get, you can’t change who you are for anybody else. And I know it takes a lot, but it makes you a stronger person and you’ll be so happy that you didn’t later on in life."
— Frank Iero

“Everything you do in life, you should take a lesson from, whether it be good or bad. So, um, you just chalk it up to experience and you just learn how to do it better the next time around.” — Frank Iero.

“We embody [the] power of fighting against adversity!" - Frank Iero

“The future’s too bright to dwell on the past. Life moves fast, run faster.” — Frank Iero.

"A lot of people I’ve met in person seem to be very changed people, but I don’t know if that has to do with us. We had a mom the other day, she said, ‘This is weird, but my daughter used to be really shy and hated herself. Then she found out about this band and she came out of her shell, and now she is excited about life.’ That is just crazy to hear that. That is awesome. That’s the idea. That’s what it is about. To do something radically different"

— Gerard Way.


 ''Life is very, very short, and you can choose to live it how you want. You can choose to dumb yourself down and not express yourself just so you can fit in, just so people won't dislike you. OR, You can fucking l i v e . " - Gerard Arthur Way 


 “Growing up, I always wanted to be Batman because he was just a normal dude. Superman was all-perfect and had a duty to protect people. For Batman, it was a complusion, like a religious thing. All the best heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary.” — Gerard Way


“You can do amazing things when you believe[in yourself], amazing stuff that people aren’t even capable of. If you believe it, then you could make other people believe it too.” — Gerard Way.

“No matter how bad it gets, don’t give up. Always keep running. We will always be there for you. Just turn up the speakers, sing like no one’s listening, dance like nobody’s there.” — Gerard Way.

“Everytime somebody ever told you that you weren’t gonna amount to anything, you know, that’s your time to shine… you know, you can show everybody and prove to yourself what you’re doing is real and that it counts and that it makes a difference.” — Frank Iero.

“To ignore death and to be afraid of it is dumb because everyone is going to face it at some point. If you look at death and the reality of it, you realize that we’re all going to die, so let’s use this time on Earth to be positive and do good things.” — Ray Toro.

“Be yourself, don’t take anyone’s shit, and never let them take you alive… thanks for catching me when I fall and thanks for being brave.” — Gerard Way.

“Your main goal is to make something that you enjoy but also to make some kind of impact and radically alter your destiny in a lot of ways. Because of that you have to be really fearless with it, you can’t worry about it. You have to try push it as far as you can to see if you can break it. You have do what is right for you.” — Gerard Way.

“If for one minute you think you're better than a sixteen year old girl in a Green Day t-shirt, you are sorely mistaken. Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band. You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn't know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about.” - G.Way

“When you doubt yourself you create something better.” - Ray Toro

"We have grown up and matured. We’ve learned to smile more, we try not to take thing so seriously. It’s not the end of the world all the time. Things are pretty okay, let’s just fucking smile. That’s what i tell myself, just enjoy life." - Mikey Way

Det är inte alla som förstår varför jag älskar MCR...

Men jag tänkte samla lite bland annat inspirationscitat från dem här.

My Chemical Romance ger mig hopp och jag tycker att de är inspirerande, men de är inte bara där när jag känner mig nere.

“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 f**king punch you in the face if you try.”
― Gerard Way

"People that don't really get into the record and listen to the record, and don't know what it's about, are gonna look at it and see like the second song is called "Dead!" you know, that's the whole point, this record is the most uplifting live your life record that I've ever heard." -
Bob Bryar (Pratar om deras tredje album The Black Parade)


Alla kan inte förstå. My Chem använder sig av många metaforer. Deras stil kan vara annorlunda och folk har en tendens till att inte gilla det som är annorlunda. Men vissa saker är uppenbara. Den första raden, I den första My Chemical Romance låten någonsin skriven är.. "You're not in this alone"
