Please don't confuse them with Music/MyBloodyValentine, who are a British {{Shoegazing}} band who similarly have nothing to do with them, though Gerard admits inspired the "My" in their band name (the Chemical Romance part is a quote from the back of an Irvine Welsh novel).

* {{Last Note Nightmare}} : One of the worst offenders, Sleep, ends with a rapid succession of long, tortured, raspy screams that only increase in volume and anguish as the guitars screech, and boy does it add to the creepiness of it all. To be fair, the song is inspired by a series of vivid night terrors.

* PrettyBoy: Gerard, to the extent that his androgyny can be confusing to newcomers.

* [[SheCleansUpNicely He Cleans Up Nicely]]: The entire band in the video for “The Ghost of You” but especially Gerard Way- not that he wasn't very pretty when he had wild hair and {{Guyliner}} but as a fresh-faced WWII [[GoodLookingPrivates Army sergeant]] rocking an Elivis-style pompadour, he is undeniably hot.

An American rock band, often used as a prime example of the Music/{{emo}} genre (but [[FandomBerserkButton don't tell them that]]-- also, that's not a bad thing). Their music is best described as a mixture of PostHardcore, PopPunk accessibility, horror-punk influenced lyrics and stylings, and a heaping dose of over the top theatrics and album rock storytelling straight out of the 1970's (all of this presented with the look of a GothRock band). They formed in [[{{Joisey}} New Jersey]] around late 2001 with their first song, "Skylines and Turnstiles." The band claims that the theme and style of their music was initially inspired by their feelings during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The band has a notoriously bad BrokenBase and a very UnpleasableFanbase, rampant with FanDumb and HateDumb. Enter at your own risk.

risk, but don't let that distract from the crazy-awesome music.



In 2006, drawing on their love of Music/PinkFloyd's {{progressive rock}} and {{glam rock}} bands such as Music/{{Queen}} and [[Music/MarcBolan T.Rex]], they combined these influences with their old post-hardcore sound to create what is considered their defining work, titled ''Music/TheBlackParade''. While most popular rock bands in 2006 were focused on being raw and garage influenced, The Black Parade was intentionally bombastic and excessive, reflecting the 70s rock bands that Gerard Way loved and the hip, indie establishment treated with disdain. Throw in its {{rock opera}} storyline of a dying cancer patient and you have a 1970s album brought to life in the twenty-first century. The album proved to be a critical and commercial success, with several review sites and magazines placing it as one of the best albums of the decade.

** This is especially true for ''The Black Parade'', a RockOpera about the final moments of a dying cancer patient and eventual death. When death comes for him, it takes the form of his fondest memory, which is a parade that he saw as a child.
