My Chemical Romance have been subjected to a heavy bottling while performing on stage at the Carling Weekend: Reading Festival on August 27.
The band were pelted repeatedly by the audience throughout their set on the main stage.
However while the group tried to battle through and continue their performance, the constant shelling clearly upset frontman Gerard Way.
After sarcastically asking for the crowd to boo and hiss, the singer declared: "We might be outsiders today, but we represent every outsider out there".
He then introduced a track saying, "This song is called thanks for all the bottles, thanks for all the piss, thanks for all the golf balls, thanks for all the apples and thanks for all the sticky shit."
The singer did briefly get the whole crowd on his side, when in response to a recent article that suggested emo promoted self-harm, he got the audience to chant "Fuck the Daily Mail" three times, according to NME.com report.
Several days before the incident, on August 25, Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendan Urie was hit by a bottle seconds into his band's set on the Main Stage at the Reading Festival. Playing opening song "The Only Difference Between Suicide And Martyrdom Is Press Coverage", the singer was struck in the face by a missle thrown from the crowd. Read more at PunkBands.com.
