Meaning and History logo

My Chemical Romance Logo history


Probably the first notable My Chemical Romance logo was the one that could be seen on the cover of the band’s second album, Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge. It contained the name of the band in white against the black background.

The Black parade logo (2006) featured a new, “scratched” typeface.

Symbol

In 2016, the band posted a teaser video featuring a new logo, which was nicknamed “MCRX.” It was based on a cross, where each of the ends was divided in two pars curling outwards in opposite directions.
There was a letter on each of the corners. Three of them were the first letters of the band’s name (“M,” “C,” and “R”), while the fourth one, the “X”, as the Roman numeral for “10”, supposedly symbolized the 10th anniversary of The Black Parade album. This explanation seems perfectly logical, as the logo was released for a reissue of that album.
