Now, DJ Lance Rock, the show’s host, has revealed why MCR were one of the best guests the show has ever had.
Over the years, the Nickelodeon show has welcomed various musical acts including Taking Back Sunday, Jimmy Eat World, Weezer and even the Flaming Lips. However, in 2011, My Chemical Romance truly spread some holiday cheer with their performance of “Every Snowflake Is Different (Just Like You)” on the show.
My Chemical Romance were dressed in color ski gear and performed in front of a Winter Wonderland backdrop. Their performance celebrated uniqueness while also introducing a true emo bop to Nickelodeon’s audience. The festive episode also included appearances from Tom Hanks and Tori Spelling among others.

“You know, there have been so many awesome bands on Yo Gabba Gabba!, it’s hard to remember every single one,” he says. “But I remember when My Chemical Romance came on.”
DJ Lance Rock goes on to say that My Chemical Romance were really into their performance. As a result, their appearance on Yo Gabba Gabba! was one of DJ Lance Rock’s all-time favorites.
“They were really into it and they really enjoyed being on the show,” he continues. “They were a lot of fun and they brought their A-game. Gerard was such an awesome guy, the whole band was great. That was really one of the best bands I saw on the show.”
