I think they will be inducted. They've had a huge impact on music, both positive and negative. Positive in the fact their music actually has a message, but also negative impacts due to their fanbase.

My Chemical Romance shouldnt be inducted. All they are is a stupid aprt of these scene that everyone likes to call Rock N Roll. Its not. Rock N Roll was GnR, who lasted a long time. Id be surprised if anyone even recognized the name My Chemical Romance in a few years.

Well, MCR is doing well right now and unlike imitators like PATD, are talented. It's really tough to put them under a genre, so just call them alternative. They have the best chance right now of making the hall of fame, but they still got work ahead.

I think MCR are amazing, and deserve to win. They've done so much, and been through so much, they should have this.
Posted by Sam on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 12:25pm
I think My Chemical Romance defintley deserve this. For the second dude who commented, yes, when they started out, they were apart of the "scene", but since then they have advanced above it, ove comrades still stuck behind like Fall out Bot (no offense to them). Their music is so mature and they deserve this over the other applicants in their category.
Posted by Lance Banks on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 12:29pm
I think that My Chemical Romance is a band that should be looked up to.
MCR so deserves this... I am actually listening to 'Thank you for the Venom' right now. Like said in the above comment, MCR saves lives. I have contemplated suicide and listening to MCR always cheers me up. And I know personally it has helped many of my friends in the same way.
My Chemical Romance has had an impact on many people's lives, not only on saving lives, but inspiring people. their music is so incredible and "The Black Parade" really proves that.
this band has left a huge impact in today's society. even if you don't appreciate their music, you need to realize that. they have helped suicidal teens confront their demons and have helped many other teens in self-discovery. the hall of fame is made for bands like these, those bands which leave an impact in the world around them and change people forever. therefore they deserve this. yes they were influenced by many bands, but i'd like you to name 5 bands that never had atleast one influence to their work.

I like a lot of MCR songs, but they are fakes. They do not play in concert worth crap. Every concert Ive been too and seen on tv, I didn't know which song they played because i couldn't understand them.
Posted by Sean on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 14:38pm
My Chemical Romance needs to be in the rock and roll hall of fame. They started in basements and worked their way to the top. Their music is real and incredible. Oh and I've seen MCR 7 times, and they are amazing every time.
Posted by erika on Thursday, 03.15.07 @ 14:48pm
Nothing special about this band.
Posted by Matt on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 00:00am
MCR, I personally couldnt think of a band more worthy candidate of being entered into the Hall of Fame.
I think My Chemical Romance should be put in here because the songs all have heartful meanings and thats what reaches out to people. Thats also what keeps most the fans alive as well, i would know from my own near death experiance. if any band should be put in here, its definatly them. They never told their fans to be any one but themselves an the music has never failed to be from their hearts. My chemical romance should be in the Hall Of Fame
Posted by Holly F. on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 06:19am
My Chemical Romance really deserve this, it would be amazing for them to get this!
Posted by Melanie on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 10:38am
definitely not. they're popular at the moment only because that genre of rock is what's cool amongst the kiddies at the time. their music is something the majority of their fanbase will grow out of, and i highly doubt their band is one that'll be remembered.

I think My Chemical Romance has had a positive impact on our youth. If you actually had time to talk to the genuine fans, you'd know it. They've saved lives and continue saving them, and they promote very very positive messages.
Posted by Colette on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 20:35pm
My Chemical Romance is an innovator in the rock music industry, unlike Panic or fall out boy. their music has saved many lives, including mine, and many people can testify to it,as seen at: [http://www.mylivingromance.urli.net/]. their sound is violent yet beautiful and they do make sense. its not about overrated love, sex or anything that most rappers and poseurs sing about.
Posted by milf3zaux on Friday, 03.16.07 @ 22:08pm
Their my favorite band but still not led zepplin I think fall out boy is more hall of fame but I'm still voting for my chemical romance and I've only heard like 5 of their songs not even and fall out boy has been on like 5 million magazine covers like spin and rolling stones so their more than worty still screaming own =)
Posted by Lucas on Saturday, 03.17.07 @ 03:09am
the black parade has a real message. Also three cheers was a very personal cd i think they have a good chance of making it to the hall of fame
Posted by Dezzi on Saturday, 03.17.07 @ 07:17am
If they're still around, making incredible music, by the time 2027 rolls around, then yes, I think they should be inducted. Long live The Black Parade!
Posted by Shannon Stover on Sunday, 03.18.07 @ 19:40pm
mcr definately deserve to win because not only have they impacted music, but they have saved lives, and not that many bands are powerful enough to be known for that.

My Chemical Romance deserve to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...DEFINITELY!!!
Posted by Danielle on Thursday, 03.22.07 @ 15:18pm
this is their no.1 fan and know one knows them more than i do and i will would like to say that they are one of the greatest rock/punk band in the world and that is my comment to those that will be reading this message and if i sound cocky then i am sorry but nit is true that i am their no.1 fan and no one can tell me different so thet are the best band in the world and on the lists of band names thank you
Posted by lg~gdm on Monday, 03.26.07 @ 10:49am
their songs are very heartful and that is great in a band but some people do not know what their music means and alot of people like me and a few of those people out there in all different parts of the world thier music has saved many lives including mine but that is what they are all about they can't stop giving that is a good thing in a band like this very one not many people won't to listen but if they keep on giving then i will still keep on buying as many cds and dvds and books as they bring out in to this world at this time when that time comes around for me and all their fans they are bringing out the best music ever been brought out and the people that are buying and listening are the best people ever been born in to this world the black perade and three cheers of sweet revenge has made make the best decision of my life so please my chemical romance dont stop now no matter any one says to you we will not ever stop loving your music xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I just want you to know that that anyone and everyone who knows better is laughing at you for saying such dumb things.
Posted by William on Friday, 03.30.07 @ 06:12am
Everything that I wanted to say has been said. Of course they'll make it into the Hall. Their rabid(and I mean it as a compliment, it includes me, too) fans would DEMAND that they have a spot. And to all you haters who say they'll be gone soon....didn't you say that before "The Black Parade" came out?
my chemical romance is...ug...just amazing. only the people who been through enough to see right through the lyrics and see the whole picture are true fans.

Posted by EPN on Saturday, 04.14.07 @ 17:15pm
According to Billboard, they've had about six hits.

Posted by William on Monday, 04.16.07 @ 04:35am
MCR, along with all this emo crap and their fans, need a good smack to the face. People hate emo's (especially me) MCR ripped off the Misfits and claim to be this "great rock band". Bull. if even one emo band gets in, I am really going to be pissed.

No seriously, I think they'll make it in. They sound much different than those other emo poseurs.
Posted by William on Thursday, 05.17.07 @ 11:35am
This "pretending to be someone else" gimmick is pretty lame and easy to see through. Maybe if you read more growing up you'd have the patience to scroll through what I've already written and see where I said that MCR aren't emo in the first place.

They may not be emo, but I was lying again about My Chemical Romance. They made the radio listenable again. They'll make it in during their first year.
Posted by William on Tuesday, 05.22.07 @ 11:33am
Too early to tell. A couple albums and a few hit singles now won't mean squat in 20+ years.

I can tell this ones going to be quite a fight. Cause a lot of people hate MCR. But as a huge fan, I think they deserve it.

Posted by liam on Sunday, 10.28.07 @ 08:05am
Not at all looking for a fight - merely pointing out how stupid your thought process is at times. Anyone can take almost any band (i.e. even Oasis) and then plug some prior bands in to create some cheesy mathematical equation...what's the pointt?
Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, 10.28.07 @ 12:23pm
The point is I hate MCR, and there really isn't alot to them. I'd never use equations for anyone that I thought was worthwhile.
Posted by liam on Sunday, 10.28.07 @ 12:25pm
Well, if you hate them, then say so and drop the math equations, because as I said, you can do that with just about any band.

Come on people, it's not about only the fans. A band deserves to be inducted when people that aren't fans think thry sound fine. MCR are just a fad and you will grow up to hate yourselves for loking this music.
Posted by Zazenpan on Monday, 02.25.08 @ 16:02pm
Rock and roll, the genre, died in the 70s; rock and roll, the era, is still alive. Therefore, GnR was never a 'rock and roll' band in terms of what type of music they make. Likewise, MCR isn't a 'rock and roll' band under these terms, neither.

they can be as emo as you want them to be, their music can be as shitty as you want it to be, but no matter what they're still probably THE MOST infuential band in the EMO scene, and before the black parade they actually had some good music...
Posted by Jottunrot on Monday, 06.30.08 @ 18:22pm
MCR is probably the most popular band of the century they've done so much like saving lives(and that's really important). The other bands that are out like PATD,Paramore(dont know how to spell it not a fan),ect. they have not done as much as MCR. MCR has sold millions of albums of each one that they produced and yes i will admit that they're lyrics and music is emo but the lyrics are really about their life experiences. But I say that we give them a chance but wait until the come out with a little more albums they only have 3 and their most recent one was The Black Parade released in october of 2006.So give them a chance they can become something really big.

I think it's to soon to tell, I mean they have only a few albums out. I think they're pretty good (i'll never admitt it, i'm a punk fan), Teenagers has even been called the Smells Like Teen Spirit of the 21st century, I would say that is big.
Posted by yako bam on Saturday, 08.2.08 @ 13:57pm
Um..... No. Radiohead, Coldplay, White Stripes. Yeah... that's good music. My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, and Panic! at the Disco can all go die in a hole. And for all of you saying they are "Above" The status of PATD and FOB, yeah, they may be above the status of crap, so what does that make them? Toilet? They are terrible, they will die in the mist of the new millenium. The White Stripes, Radiohead, Eminem, Coldplay. They will rise above and be remembered for generations to come. No one will care about My Chem.
Posted by Calzone on Thursday, 09.4.08 @ 22:32pm
I am a huge MCR fan. They are very good and talented, but they need to do a bit more to get into the Hall of fame. I think if they can release just 1 more standout album it will cement them.

GNR was not rock and roll. Gnr is the most overrated band in history. Axl sounds like a dying rodent when he sings. They're sound is terrible and annoying.Real music is my chemical romance. They are influenced by actual bands like iron maiden, the misfits, and black flag. Those bands are legendary . GNR is generic radio rock and they are so overplayed .Screw GNR!

Have to agree with Allie's comment above. MCR is a fine band, doesn't yet have the catalog to get in, but they're on the right track.
Posted by Paul in KY on Friday, 10.30.09 @ 08:01am
MCR should certainly be in the Hall of Fame. They deserve it. They are definetely influential. I've read at least 70% of the comments on this page and what is it with people thinking MCR is emo? If you are thinking "emo" music genre, that was around 80's through mid 90's. If you are thinking about "emo" as go cut your wrists, MCR does pretty much the exact opposite of what some of the people think on this page. MCR influences potential suicidal teens to keep their life. They DO NOT influence suicide at all. MCR is still young and plans on making more albums. I am just interested to see two generations of rock in the HoF by 2027. You get to see Pink Floyd and then (hopefully) a band inspired by Pink Floyd. (you know black parade was inspired by the wall and all that) By 2027, they should be one of the top candidates.

Every band has their time. Just like Guns and Roses had theirs. I'm pretty sure that during their career, they had a lot of haters, just like MCR. but the bands that deserved to be inducted are the ones that prove the haters wrong. MCR has had a good ten year run, and I have a feeling they're going to have at least another ten years up their sleeve. They definitely aren't Hall of Fame material right now, but by 2027 they will

I seriously think people hugely underestimate mcr's music and the influence they've had on people. I can't tell you how many musicians and artists I know who are in awe of them. And I don't mean "kiddies". besides, how come someone liking something as an adolescent make it less good and valid? Do all these people forget that 99.9% of the things inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame they probably liked and were passionate about as teenagers? There is nothing wrong with that. Those ages are when you begin to cement your personality, and figure out who you are and in fact, it is usually the things you like as a adolescent that stay with you. So the very fact that they are popular among ze youngsters I think actually make them more likely to have staying power..,lmao.

I like MCR, but I don't see it happening unless they get back together & put out at least 3 more kickass albums.
Posted by Paul in KY on Monday, 05.12.14 @ 15:25pm
I believe My Chemical Romance should be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Not only have they created great music and have saved and helped many people through their lyrics, but each time they made a new record it always had so much that was put into it. Everything they did included so much inspirational and artistic material. There wasn't anything they did that didn't have a story or thought process behind it. They have truly given something to this world and deserve to be put in the Hall of Fame.

Posted by DjPon-3 on Friday, 05.22.15 @ 15:07pm
I honestly think, that with all my heart and soul, MCR should be inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame. Not only because of their music but also because of their purpose and wide range of influence on other people. They're very much different compared to the main stream artists out there and they themselves knew that and embraced that fact. I also think a huge reason as to why they should be included is because they started the band with a purpose. While other bands would say something along the lines of, "We're just a couple of normal guys who wanted to make music," MCR was a bunch of outcasts who turned to music when they wanted to make something significant out of their lives, and used it as a medium to get through to fans who experienced the same things they did. Although I agree that they weren't the best of all rock bands, nor the most long-running ones, and that not all of their songs were hits, their music although branching out to several different music genres, all had a stamp of quality to them that made them truly MCR. (And to be honest, none of their songs was shit so kudos to them.) No matter what age or musical preference or race of the audience they always managed to reach out to people, not only through their music but the messages written in each and every one of their songs. They were great at what they did while it lasted, and I'm glad they ended with a bang rather than being left out to rust.

They're talented, none of their songs are shit, and although contrary to what majority of the world would call rock and roll, they've definitely made their mark in the world of music and though a lot of people would say not all their songs are hits or fall under the genre "Rock" (since they are known to perform under various musical genres), all of them had great messages to the audience that listened to them to serve as a channel to save people's lives through their music. How long they've lasted and how many hits or awards they've won don't mean much compared to the influence they had to their listeners.

Thank you for your comments, Andrea. I had the pleasure of seeing Gerard & the boys twice. Both times great shows. Hope you get to see him perform someday.

Mcr has saved lives. They aren't emo. And they are a great band. Most of the haters out there are mad because they cant be as good as mcr ever was.

MCR definitely deserves this. The fanbase, for better or for worse, has made the name timeless. The band will and already has gone down in history. Gerard way is still a commonly known name. My Chemical Romance has influenced many great bands, including (but not limited to) Panic! at the Disco, Fall Out Boy, and Twenty One Pilots. My Chem also influenced how music should be presented and their music videos were revolutionary. The same guy who worked on Nirvana and Green Day's videos worked on many of theirs. About their breakup, it was in no way "not rock and roll". Gerard broke them up because he was slipping into alcoholic habits again and whenever he did, Mikey seemed to follow the same path. He split them up for everyone's sake and it was time.
