My Chemical Romance, 'Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)' -- New Video, Exclusive Photos  
My Chemical Romance's new video for 'Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)' is an apocalyptic roller-coaster ride in the vein of Mad Max. As you can see from the exclusive-to-AOL photos, the video also features members of the band Mindless Self Indulgence, with guitarist Steve, Righ? as the DJ, "Dr. Death Defying," and vocalist Jimmy Urine as the main evil villain "Draculoid" who, along with his henchmen, is out to take down My Chemical Romance. Not only is the video for 'Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)' an obvious reference to 'Mad Max,' there are countless movie and video game references throughout. As MTV points out, it also pays tribute to films like 'Blade Runner,' 'Easy Rider,' the TV show the 'A-Team' and even the Nintendo Entertainment System. With its shoot-out scene at the close, the video is left open-ended and we're left wondering if, much like the movies the video references, we'll see the characters returning for a sequel.

Frontman Gerard Way had this to say about the video "The vision for the "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na) video came to me when I was in the desert this past January. We chased an album and a vision and the result is my best friends and I making art that we're excited for you to see."

My Chemical Romance's 'Na Na Na' Video: A Pop-Culture Cheat Sheet  
We combed the hyperkinetic clip and turned up references from 'Easy Rider,' postmodern comic books, vintage Nintendo and more.
by James Montgomery

Early Thursday morning (October 14) — like, 12:01 a.m. early — My Chemical Romance's much-anticipated video for "Na Na Na" premiered on MTV.com. And we've basically spent every hour since re-watching it, combing through each frame and marveling at its breakneck pacing, sneering swagger and, well, hyperkinetic, hypercolor stylings.

Yes, "Na Na Na" is certainly a remarkable thing, an eye-catching, palpitation-inducing thrill ride (sort of like the album it's promoting) that's also incredibly clever, slightly goofy, and downright sly. See, much like other great videos of recent memory — like, say, Lady Gaga's "Telephone" — it's also chock-full of blink-and-you'll-miss-them nods to pop culture; too-clever odes to film, TV, toys and all manner of electronic ephemera from the past 50 years.

So, much like we did with "Telephone," we've put "Na Na Na" through the wringer, and compiled a pop-culture cheat sheet that's alphabetized and cross-referenced for your convenience. Believe us, this took way longer than you could imagine ... but strangely, it was worth it. (Oh, and despite our best efforts, we're sure there's something we missed. Which is why we need your help: Let us know what you spot in the comments below.)

My Chemical Romance's 'Na Na Na' Video: Check Out On-Set Photos  
Clip premieres Thursday at 12:01 a.m. on MTV.com.
By James Montgomery

My Chemical Romance's much-anticipated video for "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)" doesn't premiere until Thursday — first on MTV.com and then at 11 p.m. ET on MTV, following a new episode of "Jersey Shore." And since we know that waiting is the worst, we've got a little something to tide you over until that big debut: four exclusive on-set photos, which show MCR in all their full-blown, Killjoy glory.

That means we get to see My Chem bassist Mikey Way posing with (or, perhaps, preparing to duel) the chrome-domed leader of the Vampire movement, a shot of the Killjoys and their thoroughly badass Trans Am (complete with the "Na Na Na" lyrics scrawled on its side) fueling up at a "Dead Pegasus" station in the middle of the desert, a photo of the band of outlaws cruising down the highway and a shot of them all huddled around a transistor while a bonfire burns in the background.

You can check out the photos for yourself by heading over to our Buzzworthy blog right now.

The video for "Na Na Na," co-directed by Roboshobo and MCR frontman Gerard Way, will premiere at 12:01 a.m. ET on MTV.com on Thursday and then will air at 11 p.m. on MTV, MTV2, mtvU, MTV Hits and MTV Tr3s. The song is the first single from My Chem's Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys (due November 22).

And, judging by these photos, you can expect big things from the "Na Na Na" video on Thursday.

MCR Exclusive Interview with Nova FM in Australia  
My Chemical Romance sat down for an exclusive chat with NovaFM in Los Angeles to discuss their hot new single "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)."

The New Jersey-born quartet has just re-emerged on the scene with their huge comeback track – the first taste of their forthcoming album Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys.

The follow-up to their 2006 delivery The Black Parade is tipped to be a crazy and colourful journey, as evident from the sound of "Na Na Na" and the band's brand new look.

“It was the song that started everything over," frontman Gerard Way said.

"It’s the song that hit the reset button and we recorded the entire album because of “Na Na Na.” So the song has a power to it because of that.

"It’s so much more fun. The biggest thing is there are no rules anymore. Parade had a lot of rules. It was monochromatic and we were in these tight restrictive uniforms that were very much about punishment, in a weird way. And now it’s the opposite. It’s about freedom – freedom of self-expression."

LISTEN: My Chemical Romance Debut First Song!
By William Goodman on September 22, 2010 3:49 PM

After four long years, the wait for new music from My Chemical Romance is finally over.

The New Jersey band just debuted "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)," the first track from their fall release, Danger Days: the True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, on BBC's Radio 1. Hear it below!

The song -- previewed in a Mad Max-style trailer for their upcoming album -- is an in-your-face punk anthem with blistering guitar leads, an epic breakdown, and Gerard Way's sneering delivery: "Hit the gas! / Kill 'em all / Gimme love, but I don't need it!" It's classic MCR and it's all hinged on an unforgettable, hockey-arena-filling chorus of na, na, na, na, na, nas.

In an interview with host Zane Lowe, Way said the track restored the band's spirit, which waned after they scrapped the first incarnation of their fourth album and started over in the studio.

"It took a little while to decide who and what this band is, then re-embrace that instead of turn our back on it," he said.

Way added that "Na Na Na" was the first track the band recorded after returning to the studio for the second time. "There was a lot of intensity underneath it and it propelled all of us forward."

Listen to "Na Na Na" below, then tell us what you think in the comment section below.
