My Chemical Romance (MCRofficial) are back! Celebrate with their 10 most underrated songs:
Celebrate MCR's reunion with some of their most under-appreciated songs.a snippet of new music . For lifelong MCR fans, their reunion presents an excuse to revisit their discography and reassess their merits. However, in lieu of another list reshuffling the order of their generally-accepted best songs , this one attempts to shed light on some of the most underrated and overlooked tracks throughout their four full-lengths. These might not be the most exemplary MCR songs, or the ones you’d show someone who’s unfamiliar with the band. But for fans—casual and serious—looking for a brief guide to some of their most essential deep cuts, this list is for you. 10. “Demolition Lovers” MCR’s 2002 debut, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love , is largely regarded as their weakest album. The energy and technicality of their later material is there, but many of the songs feel rather directionless and indistinguishable from what contemporaries like The Used and Thrice were doing at the same time. However, the dramatic ambition on a song like “Demolition Lovers” reeks of staying power. The six-minute closer sidewinds through half-a-dozen movements—a moody intro, frenetic verses, a breathless bridge, a metallic guitar solo and a snarling gang-chorus—before it crashes to a sudden halt. It’s a disorienting first stab at the type of compositional sagas they’d master on later recordings, but it’s absolutely brimming with potential. 9. “DESTROYA” The band got a lot of guff for trading their iconic breed of morose emo-rock for pastel pop-rock on their most recent album, 2010’s Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys . Some of that fan resentment was understandable given how much of a departure the record was from The Black Parade —the one that made them bonafide stars. However, in hindsight, Danger Days is a really strong rock album that’s arguably aged better than any of their mid-aughts hits. “DESTROYA”, which is unfortunately buried pretty deep in the 15-song tracklist, is a skyscraping bouncer that crosses riffage with the swagger of early Cage The Elephant. It’s extremely 2010, and it sounds like nothing else the band has ever done, but it feels like a spiritual return to the freewheeling energy of Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge . My Chemical Romance’s legacy rests in their gloom and doom period, but it’s worth emphasizing that their unabashedly fun songs are some of their greatest. 8. “I Never Told You What I Do for a Living” “I Never Told You What I Do for a Living” is the final track on MCR’s fan-favorite Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge , which is interesting because it doesn’t sound like a closer. After three gnarly pick-slides, it flings forward with all of the rubber-burning urgency of the rest of the album. Vocalist Gerard Way jolts between huffing over palm-muted chugs, singing sweatily during ballad-like choruses and screeching painfully during the track’s desk-flipping hardcore breakdown. Lyrically, the song ends with “two shots to the back of the head,” which also serves as an effective metaphor for the overeager band’s forced resignation from an album that doesn’t sound like it’s ready to end. 7. “Disenchanted” It’s difficult to underrate anything on an album as celebrated as The Black Parade , one of the most beloved rock records of the 21st century. However, “Disenchanted” is definitely the most overlooked of the album’s three ballads. To be fair, it’s hard to compete with the heart-shattering “I Don’t Love You” and the tear-jerking “Cancer”, and on top of that, “Disenchanted” is sandwiched between the hilarious “Teenagers” and the volcanic “Famous Last Words.” In spite of those obstacles, the defeated nihilism of its lyrics make for some of the most tragic subject matters on the entire death-centric album. With a right-hook to the rockstar facade (“I spent my highschool career spit on and shoved to agree / so I could watch all my heroes sell a car on TV”) and a gut-punching reminder of our inescapable mortality (”You’re just a sad song with nothing to say / about a lifelong wait for a hospital stay”), “Disenchanted” removes the dark theatrics and presents the futility of our reality in the body of a straightforward—and suspiciously uplifting—power-ballad. It’s one of their most poignant artistic statements. 6. “Party Poison” Although Danger Days was largely a grand experiment with bright synths, dancey rhythms and bombastic pop hooks, there are a few songs on that record in which MCR return to the unambiguous pop-punkiness of their 2004 hit, “I’m Not Okay.” “Party Poison” is one of them—a bottle-smashing rager that’s littered with infectious handclaps, hollering refrains and guitar solos that could melt plastic. It’s an electrifying piece of punk rock that’s perfect second-wind fodder for when the function starts to die down, and it’s another great example of this band’s effortless transition from mall-goth archetypes to glam-rock revivalists. 5. “Honey, This Mirror Isn’t Big Enough for the Two of Us” Most people associate I Brought You My Bullets… with “Vampires Will Never Hurt You” and “Skylines and Turnstiles,” the latter being their ode to 9/11—the event that sparked the conception of the band. But when I think of that record, I think of its barnstorming opener “Honey, This Mirror Isn’t Big Enough for the Two of Us,” which is their first true moment of greatness. The song kicks off with a metalcore guitar lead and features all the tenants of a great MCR song: searing vocal yelps from a charmingly underdeveloped Way, scorched-earth guitar riffs, an anthemic chorus, a brief moment of soft respite during the bridge and a subsequently explosive payoff. It sounds the most like Three Cheers out of everything on this album, and it doesn’t get nearly enough credit for establishing their appeal right out the gate. 4. “Hang ‘Em High” Read more: Paste Magazine
