Monday Music: Sing by My Chemical Romance

My Chemical Romance was formed a week after the September 11th attack when Gerard Way, a writer and Cartoon Network intern, decided he wanted to do more with his life. He formed a band with some friends, took the name from an Irvine Welsh novel, and the rest is history. The band did well, but really took off with their second album “Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge”, and then blew the doors off the music scene with their third album, The Black Parade.
