Mikey did not always aspire to be a musician, especially when he was growing up. But everything changed once he attended the concert of Smashing Pumpkins with his brother. After seeing them perform, Way planned to be a musician.

Right around 2001, Mikey was asked to join the band, My Chemical Romance. Upon entering the band, he had to improve his skills as a bass within a week. Moreover, Mikey was the one who proposed the name of the band after he read the book titled Ecstasy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance.
