    My Chemical Romance admit ‘pandering’

    My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way said he made “safe decisions” and was “pandering” on the band’s last album, ‘The Black Parade’.


    My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way said he was “pandering” on the band’s last record and made “safe decisions”.

    The ‘Black Parade’ singer admitted financial success had made him lose sight of his original intentions and what he wanted the group to represent.

    He told Spin.com: “I started to feel on the last record like I was pandering, and that the money had put me in stasis. It's like a trap: Stasis is death, and I started to make safe decisions.”

    Gerard admitted he also started to feel like he wasn’t in touch with his fans anymore and “stopped being on the crusade”– although a friend reminded him it was people’s choice to follow the band and suffer the consequence.

    He added: “We were going to these cities where there were hate crimes directed at the kids listening to us, the kids wearing all black. I retreated and stopped being on the crusade. I didn't want anyone to get hurt.

    “The light at the end of the tunnel was a friend reminding me I didn't wear a Public Image Ltd. pin on my jacket in high school because I wanted to get spit on, I wore it because I wanted to wear it.

    “Our kids are the same way: It's their f**king choice. I can't protect them. I need to give them what they want.”
