My Chemical Romance On American Idol?!?!?

my chemical romance on american idol

This is kind of odd.

American Idol would NOT be the first place you'd look to find a My Chemical Romance song, but it looks like the band's new single Sing will be used as music during Idol promos.

Here's what MCR frontman Gerard Way had to say about it:

"We don't know for sure, but any kind of infiltration is great, so the offer was pretty much a no-brainer. It's something a lot of people are going to see and they'll hear the music which is the most important thing."

More from guitarist Frank Lero:

"I think it would be really cool if an actual band was heard on the biggest music TV show."

My Chemical Romance seems a bit out of place for the show, but maybe there's something cool about that. Guess we'll see when promos start airing.

Would U like to hear MCR on American Idol?

    Where has MCR been since 2006?



  5. 5

    ok so when you misspell random words it isn't so bad, but please learn to spell people's names if you're going to write about them. Its Frank Iero, not Lero.

    Have you actually listened to the song? It is a very plausible song for American Idol to use…

    "Sing it out
    Boy you've got to see what tomorrow brings
    Sing it out
    Girl you've got to be what tomorrow needs
    For every time that they want to count you out
    Use your voice every single time you open up your mouth

    Sing it for the boys, sing it for the girls
    Every time that you lose it sing it for the world
    Sing it from the heart
    Sing it ’til you're nuts
    Sing it out for the ones that'll hate your guts
    Sing it for the deaf
    Sing it for the blind
    Sing about everyone that you left behind
    Sing it for the world, sing it for the world"

    American Idol is a SINGING competition.

    Re: lufflyness – on tour playing for hundreds of thousand fans. and in the studio, obviously.

    Not proofreading your articles makes you look so unprofessional. Its Frank Iero, not Lero. And I think its a great idea, it may bring them a new, younger audience, and let people know that they are back.



  9. 9

    YES! "SING" is a really cool song and an even cooler video. Shit is siiiick.



  10. 10

    I love them to death, but I find it interesting that they will reject putting their songs in such a movie as Twilight because of the "Vampire Money", yet they are thinking about allowing American Idol to use their music?..I'm not sure I believe this story.



  11. 11

    Are you stupid its IERO!!!!! nor lero



  12. 12

    Too bad its Frank Iero…



  13. 13

    Wow. If you're going to report on a specific person, you should probably learn how to spell their name.



  14. 14

    *Iero



  15. 15

    I know I'm not the first to mention this, but… Iero.

    And as much as I hate American Idol, I think any kind of promotion they get it cool, just like Gerard said, as long as people are hearing the music…



  16. 16

    Friggin sellouts, but then again I stopped liking them when the black parade came out so it's not like I care too much :P



  17. 17

  18. 18

    Re: Aries – Are you nuts??? I've seen them live 5 times and every time just got better and better! And did you see them on Jimmy Kimmel the other night? Incredible!

    To everyone else…. Where have they been? Well, since 3 of them spent the time away have kids and getting married, there ya go. All 4 have families now and kids to take care of plus they were perfecting the new album released today called Danger Days- The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys. After touring so heavily for The Black Parade, they needed a break.But they are back and better than ever!!

    And finally Perez or whoever writes this for you…. I E R O !!!! Pronounced eye-ear-oh. Poor Frank, no one can ever get his name right. :(

    Killjoys make some noise!! MCRmy forever!!!

    I don't know who this Frank Lero guy is, but I'm pretty sure Frank Iero will be upset that they found another guitarist.
