My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way was in Mexico at the weekend and he should be applauded, we guess, for being the first of emo’s holy trinity – wither thou, brothers Wentz and Urie? – to speak out on the appalling (lol) anti-emo violence that has positively swept Latin America in the last month or so.
But DrownedinSound has its suspicions that Way was merely pre-empting flying kicks to the ball region when he called for calm from the stage last Saturday (12 Apr) at Zero Fest.
“I want to say something today before we continue,” Way began.
“Recently we've been hearing a lot of stuff about some violence here in your country having to do with kids who want to wear black T-shirts... or some kind of bullshit stuff like that.
“We don't want to see any fucking violence,” he fucking continued. “We came here for one reason, and that's to be at the fucking rock show.”
Cue applause and cheers, we imagine. Arriba!
DiScuss**: will you be next on the bootboys’ list? Are YOU wearing a black T-shirt? Alex Denney is. I imagine he'll be kicked all to sod unless he sorts out that fringe.
