The Lyrics

Well, if you wanted music, then you'd better not look at us
We're so depressed we mutilate and we're causing such a fuss

We're only given dirty looks
And teenieboppers are all hooked
You might just wanna smash your foot
Through the TV when we're on TRL

We're not emo!
We're not emo!
We're not emo!
We told you so

What will it take to prove to you we're not at all what we seem? (We're not emo...)
We'll tell you time and time again, our music isn't at all what it means

Though our songs have made kids slit their wrists
And drive their cars straight off a bridge
It all may seem like we're scream-o
But for the last time, WE ARE NOT EMO!

We're not emo!
We're not emo!
We're not emo!
We told you so

We're only given dirty looks
And teenieboppers are all hooked
Our songs tell stories from a book
Written by a suicidal fifteen year old!

We're not emo...we're not EMO!!!!!!
We're not emo, now (not emo now!)

So, please, won't you listen to me?
Because to tell you the truth,
I guess we're emo! (Trust us!)

We're not emo
We're not emo
Well, we're not emo
We're not fucking emo!
We're not emo
We're not emo
We're not e-mo-o-o-o

This is funny, although i like this band, and enjoy their music its still nice to read something other than the lyrics that they sing. It kinda gets boring. indeed this is entertaining

I don't understand how you can write about how you don't like them, because you obviously don't, but you must listen to the song alot to write this parody.

Zoe - December 15, 2005 - Report this comment
Thats not funny. I agree with frankie,they KEPT me from cutting and killing myself. Some of the other songs where a TINY bit funny, but this is untrue and dumb.
Sam - December 18, 2005 - Report this comment
I loved it. My Chemical Romance are one of the worst wannabe-emo bands on earth. o_o. It's all so true =D.
John Harvey - December 21, 2005 - Report this comment
That's the problem, isn't it? People who are familiar enough with the song to appreciate the parody tend to be fans. Fans tend to not like it when you make fun of their bands. It reflects in the scores. The same sort of thing happens with political parodies.

Firstly, mcr isn't emo. Secondly, this isn't funny- not because i'm an mcr fan, it just isn't funny. Thirdly, mcr stopped my friend from cutting herself to death. Finally, if you don't like the music just shut the hell up and keep it to yourself. No-body cares.

hahaha made me laugh so much, thats a good one. the emofags dont seem to like that one lol
cazikinolious - July 04, 2006 - Report this comment
for crying out loud theyre a band not psychiatrists no one gives a crap if they stopped some whiney attenstion seeking kid from cutting themselfs

Ok. MCR are NOT emo. They may have emo fans, but they are not an emo band. I agree with the others. You must have liked this song enough to listen to it until you could get the parody right. These guys have convinced me that suicide is the stupidest way to waste life.

Dude... i'm all for my chem parodies, but the 'slit you rist' bit was a bit much. Take it down a notch. this is a serious problem. I swear, if you poke fun of people that cut themselves, i'll come in there and kick some cyber ass.

HAHA that was pretty funny. The pacing could have been slightly improved, but the best message of any parody here. MCR is so emo.

Hey keepthefaith... your friend sounds like a real pussy. This gay @$$ music kept him from cutting himself? What a qu33r.

LinkinParkFan is a troll . . .anyone that uses gay or queer as a way to insult people or demote their manhood is behind the times. Maybe it's Tim Harddaway, He's Sorry, He's So Sorry, hahaha, homophobia is funny. . .watch out THE GAYS ARE COMING THE GAYS ARE COMING. . .blah

Wasn't funny. They're NOT emo and they haven't made anyone suicidal... They've helped people but never destroyed them...
