Watch: My Chemical Romance Perform Two Songs From New Album

Band sang 'Na Na Na' and 'Sing' on 'Jimmy Kimmel'

November 19, 2010 1:43 PM ET

Last night, My Chemical Romance took their post-apocalyptic act to the stage at 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' and offered up a live preview of two songs from Danger Days: The Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, which comes out on Monday. The band tore through the space-age stomp "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)" and closed out the show with their lighter-worthy ode to standing up for oneself "Sing," which is below.

Earlier this week the band released its official video for "Sing," in which the tale of the titular Killjoys continues to spool out. Frontman Gerard Way co-directed the dark clip, which follows the Killjoys as they try to find the young girl who was taken from them at the conclusion of the video for "Na Na Na."

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
