My Chemical Romance have responded to Marilyn Manson’s recent controversial comments about them.

As previously reported Manson said his song ’Mutilation Is The Most Sincere Form Of Flattery’ from his new album ’Eat Me, Drink Me’ is about Gerard Way’s band.

Manson elaborated on his attack on the band, saying, “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.”

The lyrics from the song contain the lyrics: “Hey, there’s no rules today/You steal instead of borrow/You take all the shapes that I make/ And you think that you thought/All the thoughts that I thought/Don’t you?”

In response, Way told Rock Sound: “We still haven’t found someone that has knocked us down that we need to take seriously. 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.”
