My Chemical Romance Break Up

The emo veterans call it a career after four records and countless epic moments

After more than a decade together, emo/punk stalwarts My Chemical Romance have called it a day. The group released this brief statement on their official website:

"Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We've gotten to go places we never knew we would. We've been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We've shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure."

Frontman Gerard Way later chimed in with a tweet and a picture from his personal Twitter account: "Beyond any sadness, what I feel the most is pride.

The band released four albums throughout their career, including the popular The Black Parade. Most recently, the group released the ambitious Danger Days: The True Lives of The Fabulous Killjoys in 2010. 

The Grammy-nominated band was an iconic group during the early-2000s emo movement, mainly on the strength of their breakthrough record Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge

Reminisce by looking back on Fuse's best interview moments with My Chem  on From the Vault or by listening to the band's monster hit, "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)" below. We'll miss you, guys.

June 23: Jack White's Really Rooting for the Home Team

Were the Cubs down or something? Jack White was spotted at last night's baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres looking absolutely miserable. The Cubbies pulled out a 6-0 win over San Diego last night so the White Stripe ideally should have been enjoying himself in spite of the team's current 41-57 record.
