Bands of Brothers

My Chemical Romance

Gerard Way formed My Chemical Romance in 2001, inspired by his reaction to the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks. It wasn’t until the band had recorded its first demo that the singer’s brother, bassist Mikey Way, was convinced to drop out of college and join the band. Within three years, the band scored its first platinum album and, rightly or wrongly, became the poster children for the burgeoning emo movement. —Jeff Royer
