My Chemical Romance not elevator music

My Chemical Romance will never have their music played in an elevator, because their tracks divide opinion too much.
Great deals on musical instruments

My Chemical Romance will never have their music played in an elevator.

The 'Na Na Na' group are on a mission to "polarise" people with their music, and because their tracks inspire different reactions in people, they know they won't end up as background music.

Guitarist Frank Iero told website Drownedinsound.com: "We're a band that you love or hate. I think the worst thing to be as a band or artist is - well, you'd never hear us in an elevator.

"You hear bands even that are out now, in elevators; because you're indifferent to it. But this band is so loved and so hated that we polarise people, and that's great."

The band lost drummer Bob Bryar earlier this year while they were making their latest album, 'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys' and Frank said that inspired the four remaining members - Frank, Gerard Way, Ray Toro and Mikey Way - to work with instruments outside of their comfort zone.

He added: "We went in to writing 'Danger Days' as a four piece once again, and in doing that we needed electronics to really form that backbone.

"We put down our instruments that we were very comfortable with. Ray and I on every other record just played guitars - I mean, here and there we'd dabble with a little bit of keyboards - but we really threw ourselves in to it this time around."

'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys' is released on November 22.
