Im neuen MARILYN MANSON Song "Mutilation Is The Most Sincere Form Of Flattery" vom Album "Eat Me, Drink Me" findet man folgende 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?" welches sich gegen MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE richtet.
MANSON erklärte hierzu:
"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."
MCR Frontmann Gerard Way antwortete hierauf:
"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."
