ARTICLE: Spin Magazine - 10 Essential MCR Songs

#1 - “Helena (So Long & Goodnight)”

 The band's first Top 40 hit and finest moment could be considered a ballad, but the blistering 256 BPM verses provide the explosive contrast to the stately chorus that keep it from being a sleepy crossover hit. The surreal, stirring video, in which a corpse leaps out of the coffin for one last dance, also marked My Chemical Romance as mainstream rock’s most ambitious practitioners of the music video since the heyday of the Smashing Pumpkins.

#2 - "Vampire Money

When My Chemical Romance started, they were the weird goth kids in the corner lunch table, writing songs about vampires. By the time they made their final album, 2010's Danger Days, vamps had gone mainstream, and they capped the record with a hilarious kiss-off to all the bands who cashed in on those Twilight soundtracks: "hair back, collar up, jet black, so cool / sing it like the kids that are mean to you." Once again, the band back up their rock nerd bona fides on the intro, as Gerard and the boys engage in a little opening banter in homage to the Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz."
