A histrionic line like Taking Back Sunday’s “If you could slit my throat / With my one last gasping breath, I’d apologize for bleeding on your shirt” characterized the emotional urgency that filled every song about how some crush wasn’t working out. My Chemical Romance slotted naturally into this scene, even if they blanched at the phrase “emo.” Their origins were something out of a superhero movie: They were founded by Gerard Way in the weeks following the September 11 attacks, which he observed firsthand while working in downtown New York.
“Something just clicked in my head that morning,” he told in a 2005 cover story.
Within the emo scene, their forefathers were high stakes, high-voiced bands like Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, and Saves the Day, rather than the knottier, more elliptical bands like American Football or Sunny Day Real Estate.
A more pedantic analyst would call it something like “third-wave mall-punk.”Outwardly, this brand of emo seemed like just another sect of bands that took advantage of the emotional narcissism of teenagers and, more importantly, that they didn’t know how to sit down and sort it out.(In terms of radio airplay, their immediate antecedents were bands like Weezer, blink-182, and Green Day.) Still, they ramped up the introspective angst of their predecessors by a notch; like Romeo and Juliet, they saw love as a raging turmoil that might only find resolution in the afterlife.
