One of the most popular rock bands in the US, My Chemical Romance has gone through several logotypes since 2001, when it was founded.

Meaning and history My Chemical Romance Logo

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.

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.

The letters “M”, “C”, “R”, and “X” on the 2016 My Chemical Romance logo were given in a bold sans serif typeface looking rather generic.
