My Chemical Romance Breaks Up

No loss–I hate anything emo-ish–but I’ll report on it anyway.  From their website:

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.
-My Chemical Romance.

    Why report it so begrudgingly? They may not be your cup of tea, but 12 years in music doesn't just go unnoticed, and they undoubtedly had an effect on the industry as it stands.

    There was a loss, of a mainstay in popular rock. You can't deny that.

    How many years has it been since MCR has been relevant? If media hadn't reported, would anyone have noticed?

    Besides, it's all a marketing ploy to get the name in the news again. And look! It's working!
