My Chemical Romance is featured as Blender magazine’s ‘The Next Big Thing’, and they spoke with frontman Gerard Way, who cites Morrissey as a huge influence. “Morrissey is a hug influence on me, and I hope our songs are uplifting like his, even though the lyrics are pretty fu**ed up,” he said. “The most telling song, I guess, is ‘I’m Not Okay (I Promise)’. There’s nothing wrong with me specifically, but I do get depressed a lot. My therapist says I have a fear of success, but that’s the beauty of this band. This is the first thing I’ve done that I haven’t tried to sabotage. It has helped me overcome so many problems.”
