One of the biggest news this week was an unexpected split
of American emo rockers My Chemical Romance
. After spending 12 years together, the group has struck the hearts of fans around the globe by saying that "like all great things, it has come time for it to end."
But the MCRmy isn't willing to let go just yet. With an over 15,000-strong online petition, they are now calling the band to get back on the road for one final time and properly say goodbye to the music scene.
"They ended so abruptly without saying goodbye to their fans properly, and the MCRmy is upset. They need to do it correctly if they're going to do it at all,"
says the announcement on Change.org
Judging by the petition comments, the group has saved the lives of many of it's fans with their music and it would be wrong if their career was to end like this.
"My Chemical Romance saved my life and I promised myself I will not end my life until I saw them,"
one of the fans said.
Another UK fan says that My Chemical Romance helped her "through a lot of crap."
"They were the first band I obsessed with. I have 89 posters on my wall and more in my drawers. I made a bunch of friends from their Facebook page. I loved these guys since I was 2. My dad used to play them in the car."
Frontman Gerard Way recently released
a lengthy announcement explaining the current situation, commenting that "My Chemical Romance can never die."
Formed in 2001, the group has released a total of four studio albums, with their 2006 hit single "Welcome To The Black Parade"
reaching No. 1 on the official UK chart. The final MCR album, "Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys"
, came out in November 2010, debuting at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 chart.
