YMMV / My Chemical Romance

  • Ear Worm: Where do we start? How about here?
  • Epileptic Trees: A whole forest was planted before The Black Parade was released, resulting in lots of Wild Mass Guessing. Come to think of it, the forest might still be expanding, as there's no real agreement on whether it's the story of The Patient as he's dying or after he dies.
    • And now there's a whole new forest being planted surrounding the new album! This place has coverage on what's been going on.
      • Wouldn't it be Epileptic Cacti since the new stuff seems to be taking place in the desert?
      • Approximately 3 years later: that would be Danger Days, ladies and gentleman. Which is indeed set in the desert.
  • Funny Moments: Now has its own page.
  • Memetic Mutation: Gerard will smash your face in for six bucks and a Dr Pepper. He'll also break into your house and suck your blood if you illegally copy I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love.
    • WHEN I WAS (From a post meme on 4chan that tried to chain the lyrics of The Black Parade without any c-c-c-combo breakers.)
    • Pedicone stole everything. EVERYTHING.
  • Moment of Awesome: Now has its own page.
  • Narm: From "You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison": "DO YOU HAVE THE KEYS TO THE HOTEL ROOM?!"
    • Of course, some find it awesome nonetheless.
    • "My Gun fires seven different shades of shit. What's your favorite color, punk".
    • "IN A BAAAAAAAAAHHHHHWWWWWWKKKKSS".
    • "BUT THERE'S SHIT THAT I'VE DONE WITH THIS FUCK OF A GUN". Pointless, ridiculous, hilarious.
  • Narm Charm: The "Na Na Na" video and "Art is the Weapon" trailer.
    • Let's face it; MCR is made of Narm Charm. And it's fucking awesome.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Gerard's really rather good at this on stage, able to seem potentially Ax-Crazy before looping back into just Crazy Awesome or even badass. Song-wise, "Mama" and "Bury Me in Black" could qualify.
  • Tear Jerker: Now has its own page.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Happens with the release of every new album. Also tends to happen whenever Gerard changes his hair.
  • True Art Is Angsty: A likely initial perception. And then you get songs like "House of Wolves" and "Our Lady of Sorrows"...
    • Not so much anymore. "Na Na Na" anyone? True art is apparently a (ridiculously fun) weapon.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Depending on the picture, Gerard has a way of getting this treatment by those unfamiliar with the band. It doesn't help his case that there's a crossdressing story in his past, told by the man himself.
