Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge is the second studio album by American goth / punk / emo band My Chemical Romance, originally released in June 2004 by Reprise Records.

My Chemical Romance’s (MCR) 2002 debut I Brought You My Bullets You Brought Me Your Love was a particularly strident entry in that shifty genre of bands tortuously slamming together elements of emo, hardcore, and even metal.

Rightly signed to a larger label, MCR  returned with Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge. With the aid of production major-leaguer Howard Benson, they've edited the slight rookie excesses of their debut, resulting in a rewarding, relentless product.

Ghosts wander through this Sweet Revenge, and the blood-stained lovers of its cover are no joke. "Would I die for you? Well here's your answer in spades...Got you in my sights," Gerard Way wails in "Hang 'Em High".

There's also cinematic concepting here - "The story of a man. A woman. And the corpses of a thousand evil men..." the liners intone. "You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison" begins "In the middle of a gunfight/In the center of a restaurant." Musically the cut's claustrophobic, messy, and juiced with adrenaline, just like the crime caper shootouts it was inspired by. Picture antiheroes leaping sideways with twin pistols blaring - in slow motion, of course - and you're close.

Three Cheers teems with the influences MCR shares with its peers, but has this furious immediacy, this coarseness that's so appealing. My Chemical Romance seems to have built-in restrictive bindings that prevent it from flying off the handle into quiet-loud screamo stereotyping or odd-bird stopovers into choral parts or maudlin piano. Album highlights include the propulsive chain shots "Give 'Em Hell Kid" and "To The End", where layers of vocals increase urgency over modernist post-punk, or the raucous "Thank You For The Venom."

Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge‘s accessibility pays tribute to anger and bullet holes in black leather.

Check out the tracks: “I’m Not OK (I Promise)”; “Thank You For The Venom”; “Helena” and “The Ghost Of You”.

This Limited Edition LP reissue with printed insert is pressed in Europe on black vinyl.
