My Chemical Romance Song ‘Integral’ To ‘Watchmen’ Ending, Says Frontman Gerard Way

FROM SPLASH PAGE: On top of being a certified rock star, My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way is also living the life that most of us geeks can only dream of. In addition to his hit comic book series, Dark Horse Comics’ “The Umbrella Academy” (the new “season” of which — “Umbrella Academy: Dallas” — we previewed here on Splash Page a few weeks back), Way and the boys of MCR are also contributing a song for the upcoming, ridiculously-anticipated comic flick, “Watchmen.” For Way — a hardcore fan of the original groundbreaking comic series — it couldn’t get any better…or could it?

“I don’t want to say too much but as far as the placement right now, it’s integral to the ending of the film,” said Way, revealing that things have changed since our earlier report that MCR’s cover of “Desolation Row” would be confined to playing over the end credits. “And that gave me goose bumps, and not because we did the song, but because it works that well I feel. I’ve seen the part that we’re integral to — we’re talking about the very end.”
