My Chemical Romance Live On the Murder Scene

Whether you love ’em or hate ’em, My Chemical Romance aren’t the poseurs every naysayer would like them to be, a point that is evident in this two DVD/CD package. The first DVD contains a video diary that tells of the band’s history via interviews from their inception and time spent on Eyeball Records to singer Gerard Way’s alcoholism and the recording of 2004’s platinum Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge. Though the repetition of quotes gets a little trying, it gives some great insight into this mainstream phenomenon while showcasing their very different personalities. The second DVD features live performances, proving they’re a competent stage act that knows how to entertain an audience. An accompanying CD of these performances and two unreleased goodies round off this must have for MCR fans. (Reprise)
