My Chemical Romance is not threatened or even slightly intimidated by Marilyn Manson's comment on how the band copies his sound.

Responding to Marilyn Manson's "copycat" accuse, My Chemical Romance 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 Elvis Costello 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 "Eat Me, Drink Me" 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."

as recording artists I respect both my chemical romance and marilyn manson. however on this topic I would side with my chem because even if Manson did feel this way about them he did not have to make such an attack on them when they were not trying to be anyone but themselves and the should not get shit from other people for it. Perhaps Manson may feel this way but I think he was out of place by making such a comment.
