Is it just me, or is MCR becoming commercial?

Swedish Fish pwn you:
They've gotten older and more mature.

They changed so fans wouldn't get bored with them, which happens with so many other people and bands.


Yes !My thoughts exactly. They have even said that if they didnt change the fans would get bored with them.:]

I don't think they've become commerical. They've only changed their sound a little bit but hell that's with any band. They're not always going to sound the same as previous albums or whatever. they're grown and matured over the years and changed their sound a bit. I think they sound awesome XD and the black parade album is very, very awesome. I think it's like a breath of fresh air. It's different : )

aliss;outta control.:
Does anybody actually know what sold out means ?

Sold out means where you write a song for the purpose of attracting a certain
group or youth. Selling out is NOT becoming big or selling loads of
CD's
, because in that case Evanescence and Slipknot sold out ages ago.
But they have not sold out. I don't think they ever will. Gerard is the man that
will never stop believing in himself and the band, because if he didn't, the band and
himself would not be here today. Or at least not making music together.

The moment Gerard Way says ;
'I think I'll write a song about sex to fit in with all the other jerks out there'
Is the moment when we know My Chemical Romance have sold out.

Case motherfucking closed.


You. Are. God.

Well Put.

I think they're not "sellouts" but they have changed......they changed for the better though.....I'd rather have them be a mellower more classy MCR than the drunk,drugged up hating the world MCR.....I'm not saying I didn't like those albums...I thought they were freakin awesome but I'd much rather see them getting bigger and better instead of staying small.They deserve all the fame that they've earned. And if that means they must be HUGE to get the kind of recognition they deserve then so be it.

Are you saying that because you didn't like their latest album, they've "sold out"?

you can't fault a band because they decided to change things up. If they put out the same old crap as before, than people would say that they were being safe. People are always going to talk shit. Let MCR be who they are and put out music that they are proud of

Different people define commercial as difff things so there's no point trying to decide whether they are or not. It's pointless.

I think -as others have said- that to say they have sold out just cause this album is different is ridiculous. I personally think Revenge is different to Bullets but the fans that have liked them from the beginning of their career as a band didn't say they had sold out because they gained more fans and slightly changed their musical and lyrical style so why is now any different? What do you even define as selling out?

They've sold out, they knew classical rock was in, everyone was doing it, so they decided to jump on the bandwagon and cash in. It's all about the money and fame at this point.

MCR haven't sold out. The fact that they seem to be handling fame better than some bands (*cough Good Charlotte cough*) suggests they will probably break up before they sell out.

just because MCR are featured on MTV and such, does not mean they have "sold out". selling out , in my opinion, is exactly what aliss;outta control said. If you think about it, maybe we should be happy that they're on MTV and such, making a change in the mainstream music scene. In my opinion MCR were, and still are, WAY more different and unique than a lot of artists out there today. TBP is creative, whether or not it's different than Revenge.. MCR did not, and I don't think will ever, sell out.
