My Chemical Romance Answers Manson's Blast

June 11, 2007 (4:21 am) GMT
My Chemical Romance is not threatened or even slightly intimidated by Marilyn Manson's comment on how the band copies his sound.

Responding to 's "copycat" accuse, took it pretty easy. The band laughed off the fact that the accusation comes from a Marilyn Manson.

Frontman Gerard Way told Rock Sound magazine, "If said we sucked we would think about it a bit but usually it is comments from someone with a new record to promote so the remarks ring hollow." He then added, "We still haven't found someone that has knocked us down that we need to take seriously."

Manson previously called MCR "sad and pitiful" and said that his new song "Mutilation is the Most Sincere Form of Flattery" from "" is an attack on the band. Speaking to a London paper, Manson exclaimed, "I'm embarrassed to be me because these people are doing a really sad, pitiful, shallow version of what I've done. If they want to identify with me then here's a razor blade. Call me when you're done and we'll talk."
