Frank Iero Was Teasing A My Chemical Romance Reunion Months Before It Was Announced

Guitarist Frank Iero is reminding fans of his clever wording when he had to answer My Chemical Romance reunion questions in interviews last year.

From June 2019 onwards last year, Frank Iero spent many an interview dodging questions about the My Chemical Romance reunion after Joe Jonas seemingly revealed that the then-on-hiatus band were rehearsing next door to the pop group. Now, the guitarist is reminding fans just how sneaky he was with the wording of his answers, and how he was actually hinting about their comeback the whole time.

As he pointed out back in December, Frank answered one particular interview question about the comeback rumours by calling them “a broken clock”, later tweeting that, “Some might think that I meant to say broken record, but I did not. Because even a broken clock is right twice a day.” Gah!

And the guitarist is continuing to wind up fans with this tiny detail on Instagram, posting a photo of a fortune cookie with the exact same message: “Even a broken clock is right two times a day.”

Of course, there were other mentions of their potential comeback, too, with Frank alluding to his band getting back together in July by cryptically stating, “I survived a bus accident, so anything is possible…”

He also hilariously made fun of Joe Jonas’ comments by joking in a video, “Hey, got a little dirt for ya, a little scoopy poop. 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.”

Too good.
