My Chemical Romance fans are staging a march today (May 31) in London to protest against claims the emo genre is a suicide cult.
It followed an article in 2006 which erroneously linked emo with the goth scene and included claims that fans of the genre were self-harmers.
Along with today’s march, fans are also expected to hold a 12 hour vigil in Hyde Park.
NME.COM will bring you coverage from today’s protest as it happens.
The attack on emo in the UK comes on the heels of the persecution of Mexican fans of the genre. There rock fans have physically attacked so-called emo kids.
