(#) MCR_music_mad_girl 2007-06-14MCR didn't save my life they MADE my life..i found them when i was 11 first song i heard was honey and ever since that song i have loved rock music, in away they saved my life 'cause in 2005 my uncle committed suicide and i couldn't cope but when i listened to MCR the pain , fear and regret just went if that makes sense all i thought about was death now I'm happier when i listen to MCR they're all so inspiring in their own way ...
(#) MCR_SavedMyLifeX 2007-06-15MCR so totally saved my life. when i was little [really young], their first CD, Bullets, came out. somehow, it came around to me and i took a listen to them. i was super young [as stated well obviously before], so the lyrics didn't really catch as super-intense, but yet there was something in their music that drove me to feeling safe. but some time after, i started a new school. everyone liked rap, so i pretended to like it too in order to fit in. still, i sat at a different lunch table, all alone. and there was more to that. i made two new friends, though not in my school. i realized after going over their houses that their parents didn't fight, like mine did every minute. their dinners were filled with talking and smiles, unlike the ones at my house because there was nothing anybody could say without sparking my parents off into a big arguement. i found myself cried to sleep because of few friends, my parents conflict, and i felt plain old helpless. i realized that i didn't want my two friends coming over my house because i didn't want them to see that my parents weren't "normal". i felt lost and alone, and every morning i'd wake up with tear-stained cheeks. but soon, MCR came out with their second album, Revenge. i remembered them from Bullets, so i decided to check them out. i took one listen to the first track, Helena, and i immediately felt like i was not alone. i felt like there were five guys who went through being alone, and look where they are now, saving lives. i picked up Bullets again -- instantly obsessed -- and deciphered their lyrics. deep and not afraid of expression. after that day, i wasn't afraid to say i hated rap and loved rock, i didn't like the color pink, my parents fought a ton [they still do actually, but i'm used to it] but that's the way they are.
My Chem saved my life, and i'm 100% sure i'm not the only one. not anymore.
(#) VampireUntil12pm 2007-06-17How long ago was this? I heard that Bob got 3rd degree burns during the making of, 'Famous Last Words' and that's also where Gerard sprained his ankle. But if this is recent then.. oh my fucking lord.
They saved my life and they are there to save other's lives as well. Rock-On My Chem!
I hope it wasn't recent for their sake.
- I was in the fifth grade and everyone kept telling me that your worthless and that I'm wierd. I just ignored them. I was on YouTube and I was searching through songs and then Helena popped up and I was like okay, let me just listen to this. I heard the words and it reminded me that everyone dies and just let them go because there never coming back or something. I was really touched. I would come home everyday just to listen to that song. Then, I changed when the song I'm Not Okay(I promise)came up and I just changed. It told me that it's okay to be different. It didn't just change me, but it changed me for the better. I am me and I don't care because I love this band no matter what they do. They will always be my favorite band in my heart.
- Since kindergarden I've been victimised for being different. The definition of different was listening to Avril Lavigne instead of Hillary Duff and loving Simple Plan instead of The Backstrret Boys. I was manipulated to do things for people on the understanding that they would at least treat me like i was human. They never did. Lat year was the first year I started to make real friends, but even then I was still getting hurt and being forced to change so i could be like them. One day I was at the bus stop and there was a boy listening to 'Teenagers' I liked it and nodded along to the beat. I bought The Black Parade from iTunes that night, then I found myself purchasing Revenge, Bullets, The Black Parade Is dead, LOTMS all the EPs and videos
My Chemical Romance didn't save me. They fucking made me.
