Frank Iero To Joe Jonas on MCR Rumor: “You’re A Disney Band, Bro”

The former My Chemical Romance guitarist tells Joe Jonas to stay in his lane when talking about “real” rock bands.

When Joe Jonas of The Jonas brothers first came out with the rumor that My Chemical Romance were reforming, the band’s former guitarist Frank Iero had a pretty hilarious response via his Instagram account. Impersonating the 29-year-old pop star (complete with fake eyebrows), Frank joked, “Apparently the Ramones are playing down the hall from us in Moscow. Thought those guys were supposed to be dead or something. I don’t know what that’s about.”

But now, Frank has addressed Joe’s gossiping directly on YouTube’s Zach Sang Show, calling out the pop star for speaking out of school.

I don’t understand why you would do an interview about your band and talk about someone else’s band,” Frank says of Joe. “I think they’re trying to rebrand their band as a real rock band and they’re trying to mention as many rock bands, and trying to get, like synonymous with other things and people aren’t gonna forget that you’re a Disney band, bro. Sorry, it’s not gonna happen.”

Watch the full interview below, with the quote above starting at around the 1:11:17 mark:

Frank was equally outspoken in our recent episode of In Conversation that streamed just yesterday. He came by our Brooklyn, NY, office to chat about his new album, Barriers, his time in My Chem, and his entire career in between.
