After a 12 year run of amazing lyrics and cures for teenage angst, My Chemical Romance has called it quits. They announced this news on their website on Friday in a brief statement saying:
“Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We’ve gotten to go places we never knew we would. We’ve been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We’ve shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.”

There wasn’t any band related squabble which was the best part of this news. It’s simply time to move on to bigger and better things. The lead vocalist Gerard Way just recently did a mashup with EDM favorite Deadmau5.
“I’m Not Okay” was one of their best singles and is definitely a song we can’t stop listening to because, the fact that MCR is over is devastating and simply not okay. Since we can’t do anything about it, we’re just gonna drown our sadness with their music. Hopefully in the future we’ll be seeing more of their individual works.
