Gerard Way - Gerard Way Responds To Beck's 'Propaganda' Accusations
My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way has hit back at U.S. broadcaster Glenn Beck after he warned American parents to be vigilant of the band's "propaganda" track Sing.
The right-wing TV personality took aim at TV show Glee's use of the song in a recent episode, insisting the characters in the programme lack moral values and were singing an "anthem" full of anti-establishment propaganda.
He told viewers, "It is an anthem saying 'Join us'. How can you and I possibly win against that?"
But Way insists Beck was confused over the song's message, saying, "I think the word Glenn Beck was looking for was 'subversion' not 'propaganda', because I don't know what (the lyrics) would be considered propaganda for. Truth? Sentiment?
"I can't tell what he's angrier about - the fact that it's how I feel about the persistent sterilisation of our culture or the fact that it's on network television for everyone to hear."
