It is probably no surprise the once defunct and now back My Chemical Romance’s music has finally been played on Doom Patrol.
After all, when band lead singer Gerard Way was a writer on the Doom Patrol comics for a while, and wrote the hit comic book series The Umbrella Academy, of course, DC Comics would want to reward him somehow.
NOT that I’m complaining as I love that a song like My Chemical Romance’s ‘The Kids From Yesterday‘ showed up on last night’s episode of Doom Patrol, as it’s a helluva song.
My Chemical Romance’s ‘The Kids From Yesterday‘ was played on last night’s Doom Patrol, Season 3, Episode 5, “Dada Patrol” as Jane wakes up to find Kay having a therapy session with Dr. Harrison.
‘The Kids From Yesterday‘ is from MCR’s album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, which was released waaaaay back in 2010.
The song was the sixth single from the album, and went on to be released as a limited edition CD and shirt bundle — only in Australia. Eh?
‘The Kids From Yesterday‘ official music video was released a couple of years later, and was originally a video created by band fan Emily Rose Eisemann.
MCR liked it so much they re-edited her ideas into the song’s music video. Cool, eh?
Listen to My Chemical Romance’s ‘The Kids From Yesterday‘ as played on Doom Patrol in that video, and on the band’s Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys album at the bottom of this article.
And yeah, the song is killer addictive.
