The prospect of listening to this new single by My Chemical Romance was, at least to me, as unpleasant as being shrunken down by Rick Moranis and finding himself a millimetre high and deep within Maggie Thatcher’s lady garden. This latest offering by Gerard Way, an apparent man who just a couple of years ago resembled my eleven year old nephew, is just as irritating as everything else he has ever written. The unnecessarily theatrical beginning drags out what could have been a short and possibly bearable song. After a few listens you might find yourself enjoying this single (it is a little catchy) but probably not.
Verdict? It’s not okay (trust me).
