I really liked that band. I found them to be really amusing, with their how DARK their image was back in their heyday. "Sad lyrics". "Blood" and "death" in every other line. Trying to look like skelingtons. I really touched the hearts of the emo and goth crowd. If they ever had one.
I also liked watching Gerard Way sing in their music videos (which in itself I thought were really good music videos). He always seems so into it when he sings. So full of emotion. Like he's going to burst into tears any minute.
But I genuinely did like them and their music, not just as a thing to make fun of (though that contributed a lot).
