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 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.

2002 — 2004

My Chemical Romance Logo 2002
The very first logo for My Chemical Romance was created in 2002 and is completely different from the classy and clean emblem we all can see today. The original composition featured a white handwritten wordmark with all the letters jumping, placed on a bright gradient pink and yellow rectangular background.

2004 — 2006

My Chemical Romance Logo 2004
The redesign of 2004 changes the concept of the band’s logo to a more minimalist and strict. The new inscription was written in white lowercase letters of a smooth and bold typewriter-style font. The lettering was placed in two lines on a solid black background.

2006 — 2016

2016 — Today

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.

Color

The band has been consistent in its color palette: the combination of black and white was featured in the logos for the second and third albums, as well as the 2016 reissue of The Black Parade.
