My Chemical Watchmen

Dec. 5, 2008by:

The lead singer of My Chemical Romance, Gerard Way has revealed that not only will his band be responsible for the song that plays over the end of Zack Snyders' WATCHMEN, but that it will be integral the film ending. The song, is a cover of Bob Dylan's "Desolation Row".

I dont want to say too much but as far as the placement right now, its integral to the ending of the film... And that gave me goose bumps, and not because we did the song, but because it works that well I feel. Ive seen the part that were integral to were talking about the very end.

I hate this band but i don't even care, Jackie Earle Hayley's voice alone has me sold on this thing. Snyder could have prefaced this movie with one of my parents sexy home videos and I'd still be pre-booking.

TRAVESTY

FUCKKKKKKKKKKKK. Worst news I've heard all month.

This will absolutely leave a bad taste in my mouth. MCR is probably the worst band on the planet, well 2nd only to Nickleback. Emo with a capital E.

Moore is gonna love this..

Dylon himself didn't make the cut? I'm calling Snyders people...this is bullshit.

FUUUUUUUCKKKKKK

Im not the biggest fan of MCR..however film themes are a huge component to the film. Just because they might suck doesnt mean it wont work with the film. As for it being a Bob Dylan remake..well I hate Bob Dylan too, but I understand why youre all disgusted lol.

Great, now that enough smoke has been blown up MCR's ass they'll actually think they're a good band whose talent is appreciated and considered cool. Thanks Zack, that's all we need, now we're gonna get another four albums by these whiny bitches. Sad news indeed

Bullshit

Just another shitty emo band. There are thousands out there with a similar sound. For the most part, this movie takes place in 1985 and everyone should know that film scores were way better back then. 80's ambient music would've fit better. Just look at Blade Runner.

great, great stuff.
my chemical romance is one of my favourite bands of all time.
ok, the original song isn't that great (an original by mcr would be even better), but ok.

People hate re-makes so much because it's just more of the same. If it's been done before, what's the point in doing it again? Granted, if the original was bad I don't mind so much if they try to fix it with a re-make. But if the original was good to begin with then it should be left alone. I mean it was already good so why do they need to do it again?? Try something new. See what I'm saying?

Plus, re-makes are killing originality and that is to say imagination, and it promotes

Plus, re-makes are killing originality and that is to say imagination, and it promotes laziness. I mean, why come up with your own idea when you can take someone else's established idea and do it yourself? Hell, all the work is pretty much done for you already. Forget coming up with your own idea, that's too hard!

If things keep going as they are, soon Hollywood will be producing nothing but re-makes and all we'll see is movies that we've already seen over and over again, just with different names slapped on them.

They arent exactly my thing, but they've been around for seven years, and had 3 albums, so a lot of people like them at least. They can't do any worse than Bob Dylan did.

Bad News

My Chemical Romance covering Dylan? great, so we have a shitty band that nobody will remember in 5 years (and if they do it will be out of shame) doing the final song to what is supposed to be the best comic book movie ever...this is disturbing news indeed. i'm just glad Dashboard Confessional weren't available.

I dont get what the big deal is? My Chemical Romance probably made a darker version of the song, and what is the end of Watchmen like? Yeahhhhh.

Honestly, I dont get why everyone hates remakes ... They dont make the original any less good, so who cares if they screw it up?

What was wrong with Bob Dylan's version? Do we really need to get a tween punk emo band to do a cover of a classic folk song in an R-rated movie? Even if 13-year-olds get in there, they wont know or care who Bob Dylan was or how he is relevant to the Watchmen story. Might as well get the fuckin Jonas Brothers in there while you're at it.

had Snyder put one of your parents sex videos before the flick, THEN it is possible that it would gross more than the Dark Knight!

Open Minded

i was outraged when i first read this. but i'm willing to give it a shot. Desolation Row is one of my favorite songs ever and i dig MCR. But they just don't seem like they could do a good cover.

My Chemical Romance covering a Bob Dylan song sounds just...awful. They're not a terrible band, they just aren't particularly talented is all.

who the hell is mcr

desolation row is my favorite song of all time. it is a lyrical symphony that has the most brilliant imagery ive ever heard. i dont know shit about mcr so im hoping for the best.after hearin the song choice i have 100% faith in snyder and dont think he'll accept a shit cover. they shouldve just used the no direction home soundtrack version, it wouldve fit perfectly but oh well.

though her eyes are always fixed upon noahs raaaaiiiinbow, she spends her time peaking into desolation row.

Or, how about a better idea: How about ending it with the Bob Dylan version of Desolation Row? Favorite musician, great looking movie, it could have been great.

Goddamnit

I was already planning on standing by the theater doors when I sensed the movie winding down, so the second it faded to black I could bolt out an not hear an MCR cover of Bob Dylan. Looks like I have no goddamn choice anymore...

Am I the only guy who was bothered by it? I couldn't listen to it without thinking about Christian Bale's Batman and, well, it's a major issue since his movie was kinda popular...

We'll see.

It's a great song, and even though the band looks like a bunch of myspace scenescters and an annoying fanbase, they know how to play and do so rather well. And since the lyrics are already awesome and we won't actually be seeing them, the only thing that matters is if they can play well. I think they can.

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO! Not only do you NEVER COVER DESOLATION ROW (which I consider to be one of the top 5 greatest songs of all time)the band they get is one of the worst bands of the last ten years! This is infuriating.

They should ditch Chemical Romance and end the film with Britney Spears new single and the final frame should be that picture of Beyonc Knowles' hairy arm pit.

Then it'll top Dark Knight.
