"Hannah Bond, a 13 year-old girl from Kent, committed suicide by hanging herself - and emo music has been blamed, reports NME.com.

Both Bond's mother, Heather and Roger Sykes, the coroner who gave the verdict of suicide yesterday (May 7), suggested that the fact that Bond was an obsessive fan of such music was linked to her death.

The inquest heard that Bond had discussed with friends the "glamour" of suicide, and was obsessed with American band My Chemical Romance. She had a picture of an emo girl with bloody wrists on her Bebo page.

Bond's father Ray explained that his daughter had had an episode of self-harm prior to her suicide, which she told him was an emo initiation ceremony.

Heather Bond condemned emo music, saying: "There are [emo] websites that show pink teddies hanging themselves. She called emo a fashion and I thought it was normal. Hannah was a normal girl. She had loads of friends. She could be a bit moody but I thought it was just because she was a teenager."

As he gave the verdict of suicide, coroner Sykes said: "The emo overtones concerning death and associating it with glamour I find very disturbing."


So what do you think, is there such a thing as going overboard, even in music???

If you think your life is so miserable, then get out and start a new one, leaving the old one behind.


I agree with you but it isnt really easy to "start a new life",,,really difficult to forget the old one. But I dont really think it was because of some bullying...Since she had "loads" of friends...

O well she was the one who wanted to get rid of her life...not like my chemical romance is gonna follow her they've got their own lifes...

and killing herself is much easier? People who run away and take the easy way disgust me. If you're so miserable, collect money, leave, and live somewhere where no one knows you and start fresh. Better than staying where you are now and living in hell.


yeah I fully agree, I had a conversation about the same thing yesterday, those people
that give up on life are pathetic and are bastards, thinking that would solver her problems!

if you look up music you will see that may bands have lyrics about sucide, but i dont think their intention is for their fans to kill them selves.....also if you are a fam of my chemical romance, you deserve to die.

well in her case emo music was to blame, the music made her kill herself, I'm not saying
that all that listen to emo are suicidal, this is just one that decided to kill herself
based on the music. But I'm sure that there are thousands that have done the same thing, I remember
when Kurt Cobain killed himself, the day the world found out, many people around the world also
killed themselves, so maybe musicians do contribute to people following their lifestyles.

Well, to a point it did ''solve'' her problems...

If they are pathetic wouldn't it better if we got rid of them? So the suicide comes pretty much in handy. I mean maybe they are even more pathetic at living itself...So I think we are better off without them. =]
