A dance sequence to an unnamed My Chemical Romance song is set to be featured in an upcoming episode of Glee, according to an article from TV Guide [dot] com that has many My Chemical Romance fans in a mixed-emotions frenzy.

According TV Guide, the character Sue "will partake in a dance number set to a My Chemical Romance song," though it gives no further details about which song.

My Chemical Romance vocalist Gerard Way recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the prospect of an MCR/Glee collaboration:

"Who cares? Somebody once brought up Glee--like, would that bum me out? I say why get bummed about that? It's like the radio. I don’t watch the show, but I know it would be funny."

Put me FIRMLY in the "Yay" camp. I'm a sporadic Glee-watcher and have been dying for an MCR song.

Instinctively, i was prepared to stomp all over this. I have bad experiences with bands I like becoming involved in pop-culture like Glee. But now that I think about it, you'd have to be pretty open-minded to get into the world of the Killjoys, and if one of the mindless Gleeks I know (only mindless in my PERSONAL experience) want to give it a shot, then I'm all for it. That being said, I think that the song is going to be a disaster. \_( "-)_/

I think that a lot of people are going to be okay with a new song, but I also think that a lot of people think it's going to be Teenagers or Welcome to the Black Parade.

The idea is awesome, I watch Glee and if it was just taking the piss out of the song in a funny way, I'd love it. I mean, everyone dances to My Chem, right?!

Get the feeling it'll be a viewer-friendly Teenagers. Or Na Na Na.

Done very badly.

I love how indifferent Gerard is about it.
Personally, I'm a little pissed about it, simply because I don't want MCR to become a huge part of that sort of culture, and to be totally ass-kissed because of it. Other than that though, I'm not entirely arsed.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this. I enjoy Glee, even though it has a habit of being horribly cheesy and inconsistent with the plot, simply because I believe the intentions of the show are good. I believe the performance will be good. The only thing that concerns me is the context that the song is used in, but if it's going to be Sing, I don't think there's much to worry about.
