bob bryar quote

  • Interviewer: With so much talk of death in [your] lyrics I wondered what is happening right now that [you] would like to be dead, or something that is dead that [you'd] like to bring back?
  • Gerard: Hair crimping needs to go. You know what I’m saying?
  • Bob: Hair straightening.
  • Gerard: Hair straightening?
  • Mikey and Ray: OH!
  • Gerard: No way, dog! You’d ruin every band out there! Um, hair crimping has to go. I don’t see it very often but when I do it burns my ass.
  • Bob: Slippers.
  • Gerard: Yeah, slippers. We’re gonna bring back slippers from the dead.
  • Mikey: I think Hula-Hoops need to come back. There’s less violence in the world when people are using Hula-Hoops.
  • Bob: What is wrong with these people?! (reading from a book made by fans) 'What would happen if you saw Mikey walk into the bathroom with another toaster? Signed: Bob Bryar’s official bitch.'
  • Mikey: It wasn’t a toaster, it was a heater. I was putting a space heater in the bathroom when I was sick or something. I brought this heater into the shower so it was warm when I got out. It’s not the smartest thing in the world to do, but I was like ‘Whatever, I’m fucking freezing’, but apparently they turned it into a toaster.
  • Interviewer: But you were fine.
  • Mikey: Yeah, I’m here right now.
If for one minute you think you’re better than a sixteen year old girl in a Green Day t-shirt, you are sorely mistaken. Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band. You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn’t know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about.

He had it bang on. I miss MCR one hell of a lot, man. 

An angel doesn’t have to be visible

He can also be invisible

But when he touches you

Because you feel lonely

Or sad

Exactly then you feel him

And you wish to be able to see him

Just to tell him how glad you are

To have him by your side.
