MTV has an exclusive clip of the music video for My Chemical Romance's cover of “Desolation Row” — which was directed by Zack Snyder by the way. The full music video will premiere on the iTunes Music Store tomorrow.
Watchmen “easter eggs” in the music video include the smiley face on drummer Bob Bryar's kit, and the massive Rorschach symbol the band performs in front of — but according to MCR front man Gerard Way, the tie-in doesn't end there. Apparently the song plays a huge part in Snyder's much-discussed new ending to the film.
I don't want to say too much, but as far as the placement right now it's integral to the ending of the film. And that gave me goose bumps, and not because we did the song, but because it works that well, I feel.
Interesting. For a brief clip of the music video, take a look below.
