Watchmen (2009) Music Video - "Desolation Row"
The music video for My Chemical Romance's "Desolation Row" is from the soundtrack for Watchmen. The song, a reinterpretation of the Bob Dylan classic, was recorded specifically for the upcoming feature film Watchmen. Watchmen: Music From the Motion Picture, which contains the song, is due from Warner Sunset/Reprise Records on March 3rd, three days before the film hits theaters nationwide.
The video, which was helmed by Watchmen director Zack Snyder, transports the viewer into the world of Watchmen in an alternate 1985. My Chemical Romance is performing at a dive bar, reigning as the lords of anarchy above a moshpit. As the crowd surges back and forth, the scene recalls the glory days of the Sex Pistols, the Ramones, Iggy Pop, and The Dead Kennedys. A fight breaks out and becomes a bloody free-for-all as the band keeps playing. The mayhem spills out onto the street. The cops arrive and drag off the band members who are kicking, spitting, and punching the whole way. Director of Photography Guillermo Navarro (an Academy Award® winner for Pan's Labyrinth), has given the proceedings a grimy, otherworldly effect.
