Michael James Way (born September 10, 1980) is an American musician who served as bassist of the band My Chemical Romance until their split in 2013. He later cofounded the band Electric Century.

Early life

Way was born September, 1980 to Donna Lee (née Rush) and Donald Way. He has Italian ancestry on his mother's side and Scottish ancestry on his father's side. He was raised in Belleville, New Jersey alongside his brother Gerard Way. Growing up, he worked in a Barnes & Noble and later Eyeball Records. Both of these played major part in the formation of My Chemical Romance. Eyeball signed the band and released their debut record.

The first concert he ever went to was a Smashing Pumpkins concert with his brother. After seeing them perform he told him "we have to do this." He was asked to join My Chemical Romance, which involved him having to improve his bass skills in the space of a week. He has toured with From First To Last.
