My Chemical Romance Break Up

My Chemical Romance
It looks as if rock and roll has lost another great band. My Chemical Romance called it quits today by releasing a statement on their website.

"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.
My Chemical Romance"

Through 4 great studio albums and 12 years of music, My Chemical Romance has been one of the most influential bands for alternative rock. Their concept albums gave listeners not only music but stories as well. It's tragic that it ended so soon.

To prove a point, some artists are taking it into their own hands to show fans how it effects them.
