My Chemical Romance rocker Gerard Way still feels disappointed by the band's 2006 chart battle with Miley Cyrus - because they lost out to "a lip-syncing child".
The group's popular concept album The Black Parade was released in September 2006, selling 240,000 copies in the U.S. in its first week of release.
But the band missed out on America's coveted number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart, coming in second behind Cyrus' Hannah Montana soundtrack.
And Way admits losing out to a teenage pop star still hurts.
He tells the Hollywood Reporter, "We've never been number one. We got our a** kicked by Miley Cyrus last time, back when nobody knew who she was... (It was a disappointment) because I felt like we'd worked towards it and it felt like it was in the cards (sic). We expected it - like, who can beat us? A lip-syncing child, that's who."

l'm a huge fan,of the amazing,beautiful,super Talented miley.The only reason you guys didn't make it to the number one spot,is because miley is far better,than you lot.So stop sulking.Miley has the most beautiful voice l've ever heard.Oh & btw,miley never Lip-syncs.Why would she need to,with a fantastic voice like she's got.Sounds to me,that ur just sore losers.Also miley has a much higher fan base,than you lot could ever dream of having.Miley ur the best!!Keith White(Megamileyfan1)uk.

Well actually Miley Cyrus does Lip-Sync. I work in the music industry and happen to know that at almost all of her concerts and live performances she's not really singing. It's not that anything is wrong with her voice. She's just too young to handle it. And also, she doesn't write her her own music. Personally, I don't really have that much respect for her or anyone who doesn't write their own stuff. She has a good voice, but she really doesn't offer anything constructive to music in general. We need more bands like MCR. Bands have the power to emotionally connect to their fans on the level that MCR does. I've seen both MCR and Miley live and let me tell you, the two shows don't even compare. Yes, My Chemical Romance has it's faults and I don't think Danger Days will live up to the hype that it has started. However, for a pure Amercian rock band that comes from Jersey, I'd say that MCR is one of the best out there. Matt-

Miley Cyrus is just an attention seeker. I don't think she can sing at all, My chemical romance is better that miley cyrus,they can actually sing and have deep meaning in their songs.!

You people are so retarted.... Miley don't lip sync anymore... she isn't "Too young" to handle it, she si 18 retard... and is not a girl not yet a woman is what she says and she is right...yeah sure she did lip sync a few times, but then she started to sing live and it was a LITTLE off but it then got AMAZING and now it is 15 times better than what it was lat year!! She is a true singer, and actress... she's not fake like Emma Roberts
