i have tickets for either barclay center or msg(dont remember) but so fucking scared that they will cancel because of covid19
Hey man, I went to the first show of the reunion tour. I can die happy. In fact I yelled at Gerard to kill me because I was so flipping happy and I didn’t want to come down. This music makes me feel whole.
my ex boyfriend sent me this song & said it made him think of me, and idk how i should feel..?
that’s my name
I know what will play at my funeral
Me sitting in the back of the car whisper singing this
Just watched my buddies band slaughter this song last night with prolly about 80 of the best people ive ever met packed into a tiny bar.
So weird to me that not only is this song about Gerard's grandmother but also about Joe Rogan's great aunt lol.
Man being a teen to this shit was awesome fr
if you look into the meaning of this song the lyrics really hit hard cause sometimes I feel the same way
I’ve been listening to this band for 11 years now
A casa de cera!
What’s the worse that I could say?
Things are better if i stay
A decade later, they're finally back. All the emo's are losing their shit. And I got tickets to see them!! It's not goodbye, it's HELLLOOO
House of wax brought me here
House of wax brought me here mcr good band
This is the song that changed me. I became myself. It made me have a personality and thanks to it I wasn't just a little 10 yo boy. I grew my own taste in music and learned to be myself and like what made me(not others) happy. I love you, MCR

When Gee says if you carry on this way, I can picture someone carrying him or Mikey.
This song saves me Everytime I feel like killing myself. stress, depression and anxiety is not a joke. I hope, the one who is listening to this music now who seeks for pieces that will somehow cover up some empty spaces within them wins over the struggle. You're not alone 💔Thank you MCR

I’m a new fan too! ❤️
Jan 3 2020?? At full volume
i'm playing this to say goodbye to the decade since i'm alone haha..
Why is this song called Helena? It doesn't mention it anywhere in the song
Mark Campos It’s called Helena after one of the band member’s dead grandma or something like that.
@Patrick Gerard what?
It's like saying: why is "I've got a dark alley and a bad idea that says you should shut your mouth" called that? It doesn't mention it in the song
"Can we pretend to leave and then we'll meet again"foreshadowing?
I could see this as an anime op/ed
A song about his grandmother car accident
I literally cried my ass off when I heard they were returning. Even more when I found out they'd go on tour in my country 😭🖤. I'm trying to look for my eyeliner and merch shirts. I'm walking into 2020 as my 2011 self.
i remember when this song used to make full metal alchemist amv such good old times ❤💯
Excited for their new concert

I love all the comments “5 months not a phase” motherfucker try 14 years 😂😂
2020 around the corner and still listening 😎🎶🎶🎧🎤🎶🎶 #classic
Goodbye my whore ass x. 😍
This song is about the death of lead singer Gerard Way's grandmother, Elena Lee Rush. She taught Gerard how to draw, paint and sing, and she gave him his first car - the white van that appears in the original "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)" video. The song is dedicated to her, as is the CD. She is mainly who the part "Can you hear me? Are you near me?" is for. But this song also starts the concept of the CD. A man and a woman (Helena) die in a car crash ("When both our cars collide"), except the woman doesn't really die, the man only thinks she has. The man is sent to hell. This song is a mourning for Helena's "death" by the man. He is wishing he could see her again and is giving his last goodbyes ("So long and goodnight"). Gerard calls this song an “angry open letter to himself” He expresses the hatred he felt for himself after her death:It’s about why I wasn’t around for this woman who was so special to me, why I wasn’t there for the last year of her life.The video tells the story of Helenas funeral, with Gerard conducting and not believing she's gone, and that's why she gets up to dance. When she falls back in, it means Gerard finally realizes she's gone to rest, and he knows it. So he feels peaceful about it. After they put the coffin in the hearse, Gerard knows she's in a better place, and he'll see her again one day.Throughout the Warped Tour 2005, Gerard introduced this song as the most important song to himself and his band. In an interview with the Florida Sun-Sentinel, Way explained that Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge is a combination evil, devil-vampire story and sweet tribute to grandma. The whole CD was to be about revenge and this guy coming back from hell to be reunited with his love. But then Elena, Way's grandmother, died, and they decided to add in tributes to her because he loved her dearly and she was the one who taught him everything he needed to know to have a good band (i.e. how to sing). He had no idea how it would work with the rest of the CD that was supposed to be a storyline on revenge. "I don't know if it fits," Way says, "but I know that's how we had to make the record. And it's one of those things you just hope works in the end. And actually, the record works so much more on a personal level not only for us but also for the people who listen to it. In Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, there is a character named Helena who toward the play's end falls into a deep sleep. This could coincide with the song's refrain, "So long and goodnight." Before playing this song during their 2005 American tour, Gerard Way would tell the crowd to look up and say, "Hey Grandma! What's Up?" The music video, directed by Marc Webb, takes place in a church where Helena's funeral is being held. From the pulpit, Pastor Gerard leads the mourners in prayer as Helena, played by dancer Tracey Phillips, emerges from the casket and dances down the aisle before her final rest. The video was difficult for the Way brothers, who were still mourning their grandmother.
"It was extremely cathartic at first," Gerard told MCR biographer Tom Bryant (Not the Life it Seems: The True Lives of My Chemical Romance). "But the video was the hardest video we have ever made, because of that. I think that might be why it's our best. It was almost torturous to make. I showed up and the coffin was the same [as their grandma's]. I watched Tracey Phillips, who was the dancer, do the dance segment and I had to leave. There were a lot of moments that I had to leave that video. There was a very somber mood. It was very quiet. We all sat in the church very quietly ... Maybe that’s where the magic is in that video - because it came from a completely raw place. My grandmother's funeral was very hard and that video was like reliving it again. That video was very special, really personal."This, along with "I Never Told You What I Do For A Living," was used in the 2005 horror movie House of Wax.NME declared that this song was one of the "20 Greatest Goth Tracks" and that it was "a pivotal moment in cross-fertilising goth with emo" and that "MCR spawned a hybrid that ensured black clothes and eyeliner became, once again, teenage rebellion's default setting".So that’s the meaning and facts about this song From songfacts.comThe Kings of Emo 💀🖤🖤I love MCR 💀🖤🖤🖤🖤
billie : most saddest song evermcr : excuse me ?
Here’s a game, find a respectful comment talking about it’s artistic value, as opposed to thirteen year old self reflecting emos every member of this band hates
My grandma's name is Helena and I have the same birthday as her
My daughter heard this sonnnfor the first time and started dancing like they did during the breakdown. She's never seen the mv lol
Huh... so maybe I can see MCR live after all
