Killjoys, make some noise
After a four year hiatus, Jersey post-punk rockers My Chemical Romance released their third studio album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. Seemingly indulgent, Danger Days is set in a post-apocalyptic world and captures the fantasy of classic sci-fi films. A far cry from the band's 2006 release The Black Parade, the album lacks in lyricism what it makes up in danceable hits, like the single "Na Na Na" and "Planetary (GO!)" Fast paced with obvious punk and disco influences, Danger Days allows MCR to shake the "emo" stereotype they earned with Three Cheers in 2004.
