Hey guys,
I have a school project that requires 5 artifacts of literature and one of mine is an obituary. I'm doing my project on MCR. How's it sound?

My Chemical Romance was a band formed in New Jersey, October of 2001. But on March 22, 2013, this life-saving band had a downfall. This blog post was posted on the official website by the band itself:
“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.”
Fans of the band (who call themselves the MCRmy or Killjoys) were heartbroken. Many members of the MCRmy shared their emotions on the breakup and how the band helped them on the official My Chemical Romance website. One of these fans was To Every Enemy, who said “You guys have been there for me through thick and thin. You have been the sound track to my life in every tough moment, every time that I felt I should just off myself. Be done with it. Your music gave me hope. Gave me something to be happy about. Your music made me feel something when all I felt was numb.”
Although the band is over, and it seems as though they are dead, countless Killjoys still carry on and believe in the band. Not long after the breakup, lead vocalist Gerard Way posted a tweet on Twitter about the breakup, in which he gave fans some hope by saying “My Chemical Romance is done. But it can never die. It is alive in me, in the guys, and it is alive inside all of you. I always knew that, and I think you did too. Because it is not a band- it is an idea.”
With that post, My Chemical Romance left the MCRmy with some hope and the message for the band that “your memory will carry on.” And they remember My Chemical Romance, 2001-∞.
