Pick a My Chemical Romance song

Teen Gerard!

Ahhhh, little G-Way! He was sweet, shy and sensitive. A total dork with a heart of gold. High school was rough, like it is for most creative people, but Way never let it get to him. If you're most like the emo icon during his adolescent years, you're full of potential and hope, the kind that fuels people to take over the world. Call us when you're famous!

'I Brought You My Bullets'-era Screamo Gerard

My Chemical Romance's first album, 'I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love,' was their first before reaching mega-fame. It was abrasive, dark and fully screamo, but different from the other bands of the genre: MCR had pop hooks. At this point in time, Gerard was battling the line between theatrical mastermind and punk kid from New Jersey. If this is your answer, you're probably someone who can wear many hats. Never to be pigeonholed, you're the kind of person who has a variety of interests and skills. So cool!

'Three Cheers'-era Vampire Gerard

They weren't okay, they promised, but that doesn't apply to you! 'Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge'-era Gerard was more talk than action. Never one to be violent, he'd release aggression through song and those tunes were often driven by fantasy and, well, vampires. You're the type to use your emotions for good. You embrace your weirdness, and that's what makes you so unique. Trendsetting is the name of the game!

'The Black Parade' Goth-era Gerard

This is it. 'The Black Parade.' Gerard has said that he thought this was going to be My Chemical Romance's last album, their final bow. By taking control of what they thought was their own end, the band, and its frontman, streamlined their aesthetic. They were strong, definitive, powerful... and so are you! You know how to navigate most situations and remain comfortable in them. If something needs to get done, you're the one to do it. That's an invaluable skill!

'Danger Days'-era Alien Gerard

The goth days are over! If you're most like Gerard during 'Danger Days,' you're fully past your dark years of confusion, embracing the beauty of everyday life. The song "SING" encapsulates this: "Boy, you've got to see what tomorrow brings / Sing it out / Girl, you've got to be what tomorrow needs." How optimistic are you! Oh, and you probably wear colors now. Remember colors?
