My Chemical Romance’s lead singer Gerard Way commented about Twenty One Pilots’s cover of Cancer on September 26 at Alternative Press and PopBuzz, giving praise to the band.

Gerard Way was part of the now broken up alt rock band, My Chemical Romance. The band is most known for their song Welcome to the Black Parade, and they have won a multitude of awards, including best band, and best music video.

Twenty One Pilots has also won many awards, although it is difficult to categorize their music, they have been considered indie pop to alt rock. They have released a cover song about a year ago, singing My Chemical Romance’s Cancer with a more rockish vibe.

Since the release of the song, Gerard Way has been interviewed saying, “It was great. I was really impressed…I didn’t know what to expect, and I was surprised by what I heard.”

Ways’ praise doesn’t stop there, he comments, “I like that band anyway, I like the sound of that band. I think what they do is really interesting. So, I was psyched to hear that cover.”

Although Twenty One Pilots is on hiatus and didn’t respond to the praise. They did say at the release of the song to Rock Sound, “The song, I was really excited, but also kind of nervous to change something that right… the lyric that stood out to me was, ‘I will not kiss you’ it’s such a pure lyric, that person is talking about their family members…”

Both bands have a different take on the song, and both versions impressed, sending message across their fans about cancer.
