My Chemical Romance like rock to be unfashionable
My Chemical Romance think now is the best time to like rock music, because it isn't "cool".
The 'Na Na Na' rockers reckon the fact guitar-based music isn't charting very highly at present makes it "dangerous", as it the people who do listen to it become outsiders.
Guitarist Ray Toro told NME magazine: "Rock's in bad shape. It's not cool to like rock music these days, and I think that's really cool. It gives danger back to it.
"It's like when you were a metal head and everyone was like, 'what the fk are you listening to, that sucks! That's where we are."
Lead singer Gerard Way - who makes up the band alongside his brother Mikey and Frank Iero - said he feels in recent times hip hop, in particular Kanye West, has made existing rockers look foolish.
He explained: "You saw Kanye do this amazing record and making videos that are really fing artistic. Whereas pop was usually a throwaway thing, you had somebody who gave a s*t and took a chance, so in some ways that makes a bunch of guys standing around with instruments look really foolish.
"Especially ones who aren't trying to say anything."
My Chemical Romance's 'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys' album is out now, and the group are presently on tour in Europe.Posted on 24 Feb 2011 08:30 to category : Music News
