Last year, Gerard Way was struggling. His band, My ChemicalRomance, had just recorded their debut record -- the operatic andemotionally dense I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me YourLove (for tiny New York City indie Eyeball Records), but theywere still slogging it out in a wobbly van, getting lost (numeroustimes) and getting robbed (once). Then last February, My ChemicalRomance went out on their first national tour, opening for theUsed, and a funny thing happened. "First,one major-label A&R guy came to our show," Way says. "And then two,and then three and four. All of a sudden, it was like a weird fuckingfungus all over the band!" A few months later, My Chemical Romancesigned a lucrative, multi-album deal with Warner Bros.
