You guys, no matter how many petitions you sign, they are not going to come back and do a last tour.
You really want to put them through that just so we can see them on stage one more time? You heard Gerard talking about Bamboozle. He was acting. I certainly don’t want to see them put up a front for us. I want it to be pure. To be real.
One day, when they feel that itch again, I’m sure they will do a final tour. Hell, maybe even do new music. Who knows. It may not be years from now, but they will be on stage again when the time is right.
It’s not the time right now.
I have never been so proud to be a fan of My Chemical Romance as I am right now. Which is odd, considering it is after the band’s “end”. But Gerard is right, it really isn’t an end. Like he’s promised for years, they will always be there when we need them because the hope that they created will never die. I think we’ve all seen an “end” in sight for this band, but the legacy that they leave is far more important. Brian was right, they gave a generation of lost souls the strength we needed. They gave us a reason to hope and dream in a world that is ugly and hard to survive. There will never be a band quite like them, and that’s how I want it to stay. Now it’s up to us to walk this world with the lessons they gave and it’s our turn to pass them on. So thank you Gerard and thank you My Chem. MCR will never die.
It’s so odd that I have never felt more proud to be a fan of My Chemical Romance than right now, after the band has “ended”. Though like Gerard said, it will never end. Not really.
Don’t ask me how I’ve been able to rock out to BPID and Danger Days today. I woke up and was just okay. Like every other day. Still fucking hurts that we will never get anything new from them ever again, and that there’s a good possibility that I will never see them live again, but Gerard is right. I can do this without them. The band gave us everything we needed to go on without them, and to be able to stand alone is what they want and need from us. And they are still there. Always, when I need them.
There’s still a hole in my chest, but like Gerard, beyond any sadness, I woke up this morning and felt an overwhelming pride. Proud to have been a fan since the beginning. Proud to be able to say that I survived because of them. Proud that one day after this, I will be able to tell them in person thank you for everything and be able to smile about it, probably with tears but happy ones LOL.
No one will ever replace them for me, but they will never be gone for me either.
I promise, that I’ll be okay. That I will keep living. Keep running. That I’ll never let them take the light they this band gave me. Never.
Thank you, MCR.
My MCR tattoo for anon. Got it done in 2011. Gerard and Mikey signed my arm and I got it tattooed a couple hours later. Gerard also wrote “keep it ugly”.
This is the beginning of what will become a whole MCR sleeve on my right arm. I still need to add Ray and Franks autographs too. Have yet to meet them since I started this.
One of the best days of my life. Although I had met him before, this was the first time I got to get a picture with them, and only the day after I had his and Mikey’s autograph tattooed into my skin forever. At the time, this band at been my heart and soul for 9 years. I’d been listening since the beginning. They are the reason that I am okay. They gave me a family and friends that I never thought I would have and I have been part of so many great and wonderful things because of them. I have so much to thank them for, especially Gerard. This fucking hurts like crazy, but I know I’ll be okay.
Every single life that they have touched is their legacy. And that’s one hell of a fucking legacy if you ask me. More than anything, just like Gerard, I feel pride.
Having major MCR feels tonight…I miss you boys. Get back on stage soon. *cries*
no one gives a shit about this mikey thing anymore because fall out boy.
