Gerard Way and his My Chemical Romance bandmates discussed with NME the making of ‘Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys’ and revealed why they had to scrap so much material before they nailed the concept for the record. “You’re not gonna rest on the laurels of ‘Black Parade’ and ride that success into being big, because that was kind of starting to happen,” Way explained. “We played Summer Sonic Festival, and we were kind of just a generic My Chem at that point, and the record we were making was very reflective of that. We could have just kind of got up there, wore black, have a big MCR behind us, and then call it a day. That was the record we were making. Then we realized we couldn’t that. We had to take that hard road again. We had to be on a mission and it was going to be a fight.” Watch the comments via YouTube below.
