My Chemical Romance Pack released for Guitar Hero II

360 News | A very specific pack.
Activision has released the My Chemical Romance pack for Guitar Hero II on the Xbox Live Marketplace. The My Chemical Romance pack costs 500 Microsoft points and contains three songs "as performed" by My Chemical Romance.

The three songs are "Teenagers," "Famous Last Words" and "This is How I Disappear". Activision caused quite a stir early this year when the first downloadable content was released for Guitar Hero II as many people thought 500 points was a little bit expensive. Unfortunately the packs sold rather well and Activision has stated they'll be keeping the pricing.

Why do people think My Chemical Romance is emo? Just because they wore make-up like in the era of Black Parade and back in the days before Black Parade they weren't wearing the make up. How much AUS$ is it anyway? A must get for me when I buy Guitar Hero 2 and a 360.

....that isn't emo??Cmon halo, pull your head in.If you like em, whatever that's fine, but emo is as an emo does.

"Emo" is the new generic term for people who like music - regardless of what that music is. 5 years ago it was "goth" or "grungy".

....or.........not?

That is such a strange comment to make.It's wrong on alot of levels.

No, it's not. What I'm saying is, my chemical romance have absolutely nothing to do with "emo" as an actual genre - the term "emo" these days is just a generic term for derros to use to label the wankers with make up, etc. as well as lumping in anyone else loosely into that category.

^um no.

While emo is bandied about alot today, i think everyone still knows what line is drawn in the sand between rock/goth/dark/metal whatever and emo.Goth and emo is a lil bit blurred, but still easy to pick.Goth could kick your ass up and down the street, while emo's don't wanna break a fingernail.Goth live goth, emo live emo on weekends.Goth is here to stay, it's been around for freakin ages, emo is a pop fad.

Now, to just give you a once over on what emo actually is, i've provided, surprise, pictures.



=emo



=emo



=/= emo



=/= emo


And so on and so forth.Make the comparisons yourself, fairly similiar styles of music(close enough anyways, i didn't try to comapre fitty cent to anyone) but you can clearly see which ones are leaning heavily towards the whole stereotypical emo thing, and which ones aren't.


Did it really need to go this far?If you like emo bands, like i said before, fine whatever, but at least come to terms with it, as hard as it maybe.Perhaps your a closet emo?

EDIT-notice the tight pants in pic 2(and 1, hey they're band leaders outfits, don't get much tighter then that) and also note the loose baggy pants in pic 3, and the complete lack of pants in pic 4.They all correlate nicely with their emo/non-emo grouping.

Now I'm no expert on music, but for me, the rule of thumb is: if the pants are tight, they're emo.

Edit: o wow. Respect for AFI got knocked down a couple notches.

My Chemical Romance are not emo at all, but I would be the first to admit they are liked by many emos due to their subject matter (death). They are far more like Queen than anything like Simple Plan- stadium glam rock, which just happens to be about death. Even the almighty Muse are absolutely in love with these guys, and MCR write some absolutely amazing songs regardless of the subject matter's pop-culture connotations.

Not once did i say they didn't.What i am saying is that they are an emo themed/orientated/(insert spin here) band.That's all their is too it.

Again, if unsure, check the above pics, and cerebrals spot-on 5 sec emo classification guide.

Fact of the matter is, when it comes to emo's, if the pants don't fit, wear 'em.

I think it's all irrelevant pop-culture image crap, which just detracts from the actual music anyway. Sure, the bands I love most I also love to associate with as people and in terms of the way they put themselves forward, but I think alot of the death-related rock of My Chemical Romance and heartbreak-punk of AFI, while emo and a bit tiresome when you listen to only that band, are great additions to a greater library.

But I agree, the pop-culture emo thing, as opposed to the "emo" music thing, frustrates me to no end. God I hate it.

Specifically in terms of MCR though- you mention that you hate them because they're "weekend" emos- that's sort of the point of the band. Particularly with the Black Parade, the idea is that they're meant to be "in character" and their live shows are more of a theatre production than a concert. In fact (I haven't been to one, but been told), they actually play The Black Parade front to back at the beginning "in character" as "The Black Parade" then return as My Chemical Romance (aka punk band) for their older material. I just want you to distinguish this band from the trend, though I totally agree with your points in terms of emo pop culture.

You can't disagree though that MCR do set out to appeal to the "Emo" audience through the use of clothing and persona.

I watched MCR perform at the Big Day Out and noticed the lead singer coming out with a giant amount of mascara/eye liner with a black T-Shirt; the kind of fashion connatised with emo's.

Mind you this isn't a stab at MCR, I've grown some respect for their music as they've progressed to a glam rock/pop-punk hybrid. The only thing that irks me is the subject matter, however mixed with their music and you've got yourself a nice guilty pleasure band.

So if your saying that wearing mascara and a black T-shirt is "emo", then isn't Marylin Manson the biggest "emo" around.

Emo is not a genre, it is a termed coined to a certain group of people (black clothes, black hair, make-up). And "emo" bands are bands that "emo people" listen too. So generally speaking any band that these so called "emo's" listen to can be considered an emo band. Which these days, is anyone and everyone. Metal, Goth, Pop-Rock, Rock, Alternative, anything

i see emo as goth wannabe's, like all these girls who were huge pop group fans the year before then the next year start wearing black shirts and too much makeup, and dying their hair black or extremely white. and my chemical romance is deffinetly an emo band. if they arent then what the hell is emo????

Why dont they just release an EMO expansion pack already, I'm sure that Guitar Hero: Emo would sell well. While the companies are at it how about "Singstar: Emo" where you cry into the mic about your daddy and wanting to cut yourself. These packs will come with special skinny jeans and tight t-shirts.

The whole 'emo' fad is hilariously tragic, but at least its taken the focus away from punk. I was so damned sick of all those kids getting about in Dead Kennedys gear and the like, when most of them wouldn't recognise a DK song if it was biting them on the arse.

SANTA MONICA, CA—Despite a catchy 1890s soundtrack and realistic-feeling game play, Sousaphone Hero, the third installment of Activision's massively popular Guitar Hero video game franchise, sold a mere 52 copies in the United States in its opening week, the company reported Monday.

"In the wake of Guitar Hero's success, we thought the public was more than ready for additional popular American musical genres in a simulated-performance format, but people don't seem to be responding to marches as well as we had hoped," said Activision spokeswoman Melissa Hendleman, whose company spent an estimated $25 million developing the game for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii consoles.

.......

Due to the poor response to Sousaphone Hero, Activision has halted development of spin-off games Cymbal Hero, Glockenspiel Hero, and Steam Calliope Hero.
