My Chemical Romance Unsure If Killjoys Will Return In 'Bulletproof Heart' Video

28 April 2011
When we last left the Killjoys, they were dead — gunned down at the conclusion of My Chemical Romance's video for "Sing." That clip was a continuation of the DayGlo outlaws' assault on the nefarious Better Living Industries, a campaign first launched in the "Na Na Na" video and one that's central to the theme of the band's Danger Days album.



Since the Killjoys met their untimely demise, MCR have released a J-Pop-indebted video for "Planetary (Go!)" and remained mum on plans for just where Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys would go next. Fans have been clamoring for updates, but from the sound of things, they might have to wait a bit longer.

Because while My Chemical Romance are already making plans to shoot a video for their next single, "Bulletproof Heart," they're still not sure whether the clip will pick up the story of the Killjoys, or if they're going to keep fans waiting for the next chapter.

" 'Bulletproof Heart' we're actually still talking about, and we're not definitely sure yet if it's going to go back to that world," MCR frontman Gerard Way told MTV News. "Actually, I think that's almost cooler to stretch it out as long as we can, because, again, the story is so not important. The things that happened in those videos are really just metaphors for the way we saw the world, or stuff that really happened. Everything from hanging out with this crazy kid to getting shot in the head to all this stuff, it's all metaphorical.

"I like a gap [in the story]; I think it should be a gap," he continued. "And then I think that when you do get that final part, when the right song comes along, I don't know that it'll make perfect sense. It's not supposed to."

So, yes, Way realizes fans are dying for an update on the Killjoys' condition — he's heard the complaints, after all — but he's still not sure the band will go back to California 2019 for "Bulletproof Heart." Then again, it's still early. And those complaints can be compelling.

"[The video concept] is so green right now, and we've gone through so many things," Way said. "It's really weird: People started to get disappointed. They're like, 'Aw, I thought they were making that video!' and it's like, 'Well, no, we never spent the money!' "
