Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge My Chemical Romance

My Chemical Romance's second album – and first for major label Reprise - THREE CHEERS FOR SWEET REVENGE was a big leap forward from the New Jersey band's debut. Its cleaner production (by Howard Benson) and streamlined arrangements give the dark drama of these 13 originals maximum impact, and the 2004 set spawned three Modern Rock hits: “Helena,” “The Ghost of You” and emo anthem “I'm Not Okay (I Promise).” While the songs are tied together by the story of a dead gunfighter offered a deal by the Devil, frontman Gerard Way notes that “the record ended up being much more about loss and real life than anything.” My Chemical Romance broke up nine years ago today but have reunited and are headed out on tour; the triple-platinum THREE CHEERS FOR SWEET REVENGE is one reason we're glad they're back.
