They are technically talented, whether or not they're good at song-writing is for you to decide

It seems like they are trying to cash in on attention whoring teenagers to me but, I can't really say I've given them much of a chance either. I end up just putting on my headphones and listening to some Lilys or something whenver they pop up on the radio.

See that's the thing... the actual band members are all very down to Earth and everything. The music can sometimes be a little... cliche and obnoxious. But altogether, I think they're a very good band.

MCR is one of those bands that I hate to like because of how mainstream they've become, yet I still listen - and enjoy immensely. From a technical standpoint, they're very good, their songs are quite well-arranged, and even though Gerard's voice is nothing to write home about it's still great listening. I love their lyrics personally, aside from a few songs (I'm Not Okay gets on my f*cking nerves). I've been a fan since Bullets and loved their take on a concept album - Black Parade was great stuff. I hate how the press portrays them as these sort of Media Darling types, and the crazy-as-hell fangirls can go die in my opinion, but the music's still good, and from what I've seen as far as video, their live shows aren't half bad either. Great band.

The Black Parade has Cancer and Mama on it, and they're my favourite songs, so...

My 11 year old daughter loves them....still it progression from her love of McFly and Busted........I am personally not keen but they have done a couple of half decent tracks, Famous last words being the one that springs to mind. But i can't argue that they are not technically talanted.

I freaking hated Helena. Next to I'm not okay (I promise) that was the worst track on the album.

But it's also a very meaningful song.

No matter how bad you think it is, I think it deserves at least that amount of credit. For their sincerity.
