9 memories Irish emo kids have of My Chemical Romance

You’re not okay.

MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE have teased a big comeback. The band tweeted a new video, the first tweet since they broke up back in 2013.

Fans cannot COPE.

It’s taking us back…

1. To hanging out with like-minded youths by the central bank

The Spotlight Is Now On The Central Bank infomatique infomatique

Emos from all over the country landed at the Central Bank on a Saturday to sit around chatting, sharing earphones on their walkmen to listen to MCR, and to generally be emo.

The lads who skated, badly, were the most lusted after.

2. Buying MCR hoodies in Asha and hanging around aimlessly outside

4. Begging your mam to let you go to Oxegen in 2007 JUST to see them

5. Writing this all over your schoolbooks

Gerard Way was your dream man, only the weirdos like Frank Iero.

6. You queued up for hours to see them in the o2 in 2011

But had the best craic in the queue with all your emo brethren.

7. I’m Not Okay still gives you the greatest burst of nostalgia

The lyrics were all over MySpace profile that looked like this:

8. You either wore this to your debs or got your boyfriend to

Complete with red converse, of course.

9. You spent your days scanning message boards dedicated to them and buying Kerrang for the posters

Oh to be this young and cool again.
