I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love (shortened as Bullets) is the debut album by American rock band My Chemical Romance, released on July 23, 2002. The album was produced by John Naclerio at Nada Studio in Poughkeepsie, New York and Thursday's singer, Geoff Rickly, who was very active at Eyeball Records. The album earned the band a large underground following, but they were not able to emerge into the mainstream until their second album, Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, which was released two years later. During the recording of this album, singer Gerard Way had to sing vocals while suffering from a tooth abscess, making vocal work very difficult. Text on the disc reads, "Unauthorized duplication is a violation of applicable laws and will result in Gerard coming to your house and sucking your blood."[2] The album was re-released on vinyl on February 3, 2009, with a clear as well as white and red edition. It has sold over 300,000 copies in the USA as of February 2009, also achieving a Gold sales status certification for sales of over 100,000 copies in the UK.

Re-releases of the album contain a bonus Eyeball Records sampler CD. There are several different versions of the sampler, and each one contains different tracks.

Lyrical themes

I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love is often regarded as a concept album. It is believed to involve two Bonnie and Clyde-esque characters who are eventually gunned down in the desert. In My Chemical Romance's next album, Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, the unnamed man supposedly then finds himself in purgatory, where he makes a deal with Satan: his hellbound lover for the souls of a thousand evil men. He is then resurrected and sent on his gruesome task.[3] Though it is generally accepted by the group's core fanbase, the storyline is not readily apparent apart from the next album's cover and interior artwork and the song, "Demolition Lovers". This has led some to attribute its supposed existence to over-analysis on the part of hardcore fans.[4] Another theme apparent on the album is the nature of vampires, as in both the undead creatures and, metaphorically speaking, those who seek to corrupt and exploit others.[5] The song "Skylines and Turnstiles" was written shortly after the September 11 attacks and expressed feelings of sorrow and loss,[6] "Early Sunsets over Monroeville" was inspired by the George A. Romero film Dawn of the Dead. Gerard himself describes it as "a sweet song about Dawn of the Dead", with the lyrics using references from the movie. Before the September 11 attacks, Gerard was working as a comic book writer and animator. He was working on a vampire comic which he never completed and he said that is the reason for the vampires in the lyrics.
