Here’s what some of the people at Song Facts say:
I think what he means by “Kill All Your Friends” is find a way to get back together. It’s sad, but these days, it seems like we only come together when someone else dies…

“Kill all your friends” isn’t about killing. I think it might be about old friends, who went their seperate ways. It sounds like the person is finally telling someone what they think of them, that they think what they’ve done is sad, selfish and stupid. It makes several references to song writers and poets who write things that exploit things people go through without a full understanding of it. It’s about fighting the stereotypes, conformists and pretence to get to the truth in peoples minds. But it’s made harder by the fact that there was once a relationship between them and they both still hurt from that.

I agree with the first comment. (i think) that is exactly what Gerard Way meant this song to mean. Isn’t this song on the Black parade album too? Its to bad the black parade is dead. thats my favorite album from them. =(

It seems to be about relationships between friends, it definately reminds me of my group of friends XD Like, a really cynical, sarcastic song about relationships between friends, how people tend to be so ugly towards each other, backstabbing, bitching, using each other for personal gain etc. How people “scrape and sink so low” etc. So yeah, I think its looking at how people treat each other these days…doesn’t quite fit into the concept of TBP so they left it out.

I like to think that teenagers of today are granted a little bit more intelligence that if they like a song that happens to be called Kill All Your Friends they don’t literally go out and kill all their friends. It really upsets me when these teengers go on shooting sprees and people just blame the music like they can’t be bothered to look any deeper into why they were so upset.

leila, i tend to disagree. i am an american teenager and i believe that its actually quiet the opposite to things. really listening to the music helps you feel somewhat better, not telling you to kill someone. and seriously if your having those ideas you should see someone about it. Cant blame a person or persons for someones mental break down when it comes to interpretation of art. its like sueing andy warhol because his picture of a cambell soup can makes you go can someone to death! person accountablity.
