Alternative Rock, Pop Punk, Song

New Music: My Chemical Romance > Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)

Song: Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)
Artist: My Chemical Romance
Album: Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys
Label: Reprise
Genre: Alternative Rock / Pop Punk
Notes: First single from 4th LP
Analysis: 1.5 [Strange to see where this band is now, while back in my “screamo” fandom days I used to rock the fuck out to their first record (especially this). As far as I was concerned, tongue-in-cheek pop punk songs were not in their future, yet here we are. MCR are at their best without gimmicks (the evidence is in the awry Black Parade era), and this song is nothing but. Whenever a band rhymes “jazz hands” and “Batman”, trust me; they’re not expecting to be taken seriously. And when we factor in the “na na na” chorus, it might seem like they aren’t even trying; I know that they’re better than that though, and they’re playing this purposely goofy. But being shitty on purpose does not somehow paradoxically make a song good. It just makes it very, very annoying.]
