Oof.

Just kidding - I know it's a stupid name, but sometimes you just want to mope about and listen to music that *gulp* expresses your feelings. And for that purpose it's excellent.
(Admission - last year for a queer ball I went to, you had to dress up with some theme and I essentially appeared in Gerard Way cosplay.)

A take on “My Funny Valentine” that makes it sound a fittingly dangerous (at least for their early work) and goes well with their sound.

Great name, great band.
Look, I get what you're saying, but it's not. Kevin himself admits that it's from a really terrible movie, and they even wanted to change it in ~1988.

Amazing how they went from being a mediocre band with a shit name to an astonishing band with a shit name.
