My Chemical Romance scrap rules

My Chemical Romance created too many rules for their new album.

The group scrapped seven songs initially recorded for 'Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys' after realising they were not being as creative as they could.

Guitarist Ray Toro explained: "The way we've been looking at it is instead of an album getting scrapped, it was just one long writing process. Some songs we just had to get out of our system and some of those songs we kept and reworked.

"We put up a lot of rules about the songs we could write and what the sound was supposed to be for this record. But Rob Cavallo, our producer, took all those walls down for us and was like 'You know what? The sky's the limit, just write great music and use your creativity.' He's a master at doing that."

The 'Teenagers' hitmakers - Ray, singer Gerard Way, guitarist Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar - have been influenced by a variety of different artists, and said their love of the Beatles can be heard on 'S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W'.

Speaking about the track, Ray told Spin.com: "This shows off the more artsy side of the band. The Beatles are a huge influence and with the backup harmonies and effect on Gerard's vocals, it's our best stab at doing a song like 'Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds'. It takes a psychedelic journey."
