'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys' - My Chemical Romance OUT NOW! [A look back at the Journey]

Looking for a review?
My Danger Days... album review from the California listening party on November 9.

It's been more than 4 years since The Black Parade, and we made it! I am absolutely, heart-stranglingly proud to support My Chemical Romance and to have been able to write about the creation of this masterpiece through every step, misstep, stumble and take-off leading to today's beautiful apex! Danger Days: The True Lives of The Fabulous Killjoys is out now!

I guess the lead-up to today's release kind of started in early 2009 with the release of "Desolation Row" for Watchmen. After the men of MCR had been on a break since Spring of 2008, fans were able to get a brief glimpse of them immersed in the comic world the band has always so loved.

Within a month, reports were coming out that MCR were officially writing the new album, then suddenly they were doing interviews with MTV about their stripped-back new materi…

What is Better Living Industries?

Better Living Industries (Also known as BLI, BL/ind, or BL industries)is the corporation that controls Battery City. The corporation strives to bring about structure in a post-apocalyptic world. It is known for producing emotion-eliminating medications as well as every other manufactured product one can acquire in 2019.

BLI crosses over from the Killjoys world and into real life. The made-up corporation has its own  web site with products that you can actually purchase, a mission statement and a "Zone Report" in both Japanese and English.  Also, MCR takes it a step further by having changed the name under which their music is published to "Be…

1. “Look Alive, Sunshine”
The introduction to the album and the first time the listener hears narrator Dr. Death Defying's smooth Zone jargon. “Look Alive…” is exactly what you hear at the beginning of the “Na Na Na…” video, and – as you know if you have seen it – the two tracks blend perfectly.

2. “Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)”
The first single from the album and a song that many of you have probably already heard. I, having heard it in the context of the rest of the album, can safely s…
