MCR made it to number 4 in Time Out New York’s “Five emo bands that don’t suck”. Although they unfortunately get lumped into the emo category, at least they are recognized as being a decent band.
4 My Chemical Romance Gerard Way’s inventive combo set the gold standard for emo flamboyance with 2006’s The Black Parade.
Other bands in the countdown include Paramore and The Get Up Kids. View the rest of the lineup here.
