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…

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
