Long-waiting [artist id="1231843"]My Chemical Romance[/artist] fans came to MTVNews.com in droves Thursday to catch a sneak peek at the band’s first bit of new material since their Welcome to the Black Parade album: a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Desolation Row” for the upcoming “Watchmen” film.
And judging from the reactions we got, members of the MCRmy liked what they saw.
“That is just too awesome! They all look amazing!” MTV.com community member I Am a Monster wrote about the “Desolation” video, which was directed by “Watchmen” helmer Zack Snyder. “I was freaking shaking! And just … WOW!”
“As if the song wasn’t epic enough!” biting_bullets added. “Gee-sus, I’m so excited. How long has it been since we’ve had any new MCR? Too long. Plus, I screamed when I saw Gerard. By God, his child will be gorgeous.”

“Oh, I miss them so much!” user Muffinxpistol wrote. “I’m so happy they did a video!”
