My Chemical Romance - Na Na Na

Song Info:

"Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)" is a song by My Chemical Romance. It was released as the first single from their fourth studio album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.

Music Video Info:

The music video premiered on MTV on October 14, 2010. The video was co-directed by Roboshobo and Gerard Way and features comic book author Grant Morrison.[8] The music video was first previewed in the short trailer titled "Art is the Weapon" which was released on September 17, 2010.[9] Album opener "Look Alive, Sunshine" was included in the music video.[10] MTV posted photo previews on October 8, and a 30 second preview video on October 11.[11]

The video features a strangely garbed outlaw gang called the Killjoys (Gerard Way as Party Poison, Mikey Way as Kobra Kid, Ray Toro as Jet Star and Frank Iero as Fun Ghoul), who are being pursued in the badlands around Battery City by the sinister executive Korse (Morrison) of Better Living Industries (BL/ind) and his vampire-masked henchmen (the Draculoids); in between battles with Better Living, the gang are indulging in pornographic magazines, fast driving, and hacking vending machines. The Killjoys have a young girl as one of their members (portrayed by Grace Jeanette), who BL/ind is out to capture. At the end of the video, after a Mexican standoff, the Killjoys lie defeated on the ground, and the girl has been captured by Korse and the Draculoids. Korse tells the Killjoys to "keep running." The music video for later single "SING" is a companion piece and continues the story of the Killjoys and BL/ind.

In an interview with the band for KROQ, Gerard Way revealed that members of the band Mindless Self Indulgence appear in the video, with guitarist Steve, Righ? as the DJ, "Dr. Death Defying", and vocalist Jimmy Urine as the "main, tall Draculoid (a masked character in a white suit)".[12] Urine was originally intended to play the roller skater "Show Pony", but was changed to a Draculoid as he cannot skate.[2] After the video's premiere, MTV released a "Pop-Culture Cheat Sheet" listing many of the movie and TV references in the video, including films such as Blade Runner, Easy Rider and Terminator 2: Judgement Day.[13] There is also a reference to their previous album 'The Black Parade' at the 1:28 marker in the video where a half buried skeleton wearing a black marching jacket at the bottom of the screen can be seen. Similarly, in one of the "Transmissions" by Dr. Death on the band's website features a Killjoy (presumably Party Poison) searching through an abandoned room, passing by Mikey Way's Black Parade uniform and picking up one of the skull-designed masks featured in Black Parade merchandise, before finding the Mouskat mask seen in the video for Na Na Na.
