Hear My Chemical Romance’s final original song, ‘Fake Your Death’
My Chemical Romance may no longer be together, but the guys still have some music left in them. The band has unveiled its final new song, appropriately titled “Fake Your Death,” which wasn’t originally written as a “goodbye” from the band, but certainly makes a fitting last track.
My Chemical Romance announced last March that they group would be calling it quits after 12 successful years. Last month, the band announced a greatest hits package on the way, including “Fake Your Death,” and frontman Gerard Way took to Twitter to explain why the song is a perfect “eulogy” for My Chemical Romance. “What was not so obvious at the time was that the song was, and would serve as, a eulogy for the band, though I should have known it from the lyrics,” he said.
Fans can hear “Fake Your Death” in a new trailer video, which appears on My Chemical Romance’s website, for “May Death Never Stop You: The Greatest Hits 2001-2013.” The set will drop on March 25 and include “Fake Your Death” and 17 songs from the group’s career, plus three demo recordings.
“So it will exist, and it is no cowardly act to release something of this nature, but a service to those who believed in a band that did not compromise, and a wave goodbye to all,” Way stated in the Twitter message.
