My Chemical Romance "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)"
Published Sep 22, 2010Na na na na, say hello to the first taste of My Chemical Romance's Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, due November 22. The spunky "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)," punches up the New Jersey goth punks regular fare with sports-arena style chants and blistering six-string hooks before wrenching into its breakdown of spicy, Yngwie Malmsteen-inspired guitar licks and gloomy cathedral organs.
Wiseass Gerard Way, meanwhile, sasses his way through his verses demanding drugs, love and for someone to put the pedal to the metal. At one point he demands to see your jazz hands while a doomsday laser shoots off in the background. It's obnoxious, for sure, but when hasn't that worked for these guys?
