So, if I may ask, what are ALL of the Chapters for Demolition Lovers? I've always wondered about it but Im never sure. So what are they? I want to put all the pieces together to have a better understanding. Name them is you can? Is there a specific order? I just really want to know...



EDIT: I know it doesnt really make sense but if it makes it any clearer, I'm asking for a list of songs that relate to the Demolistion Lovers.

"Demolition Lovers" from Bullets is supposedly the start of a trilogy, and Gerard is quoted in the book as saying he wanted to continue it on the second and third albums.

"I Never Told You What I Do For A Living" is the second part thus. I'm not sure if there is a third part, cos the songs on The Black Parade relate more to breaking up, but it's possible "Famous Last Words" is the third part of the trilogy.

Possibly. I know what you mean though honey, Wink

Curiosity about the video 'Helena':

The video was shot on-location in a Roman Catholic church in Los Angeles, California, directed by Marc Webb, and choreographed by Michael Rooney. The video has a simple plot, with Gerard Way as a priest/entertainer at a funeral where the band is performing. There are also mourners who dance and mourn the death of Helena. Near the end, the dead body of Helena (played by burlesque dancer Tracey Philips) appears and dances down the center aisle of the church's narthex representing crossing over into the afterlife. After she falls back into the casket, the pallbearers (also played by My Chemical Romance) carry the casket to the hearse, surrounded by a phalanx of dancers meaning that her spirit has been released.

Though the song in general is about the band members Gerard Way and Mikey Way's late grandmother, it was stated in an interview that the video told a different story. The music video shows the funeral of a young, beautiful, twenty-something year old girl named Helena, who, according to Gerard Way, died tragically.
There is speculation that she could be the female of the "Demolition Lovers" that chronicle some of the band's songs, but evidence from the song leads most to believe that the video Helena died in a fatal car accident.

The video was nominated for five Moonmen at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards: Best Rock Video, Best Choreography, Best New Artist, and the MTV2 and Viewer's Choice Awards (both of which are chosen by viewers). Though the band did not win any awards, they did do a surprise performance of the song towards the end of the show. They also won an MTV Video Music Awards Latin America "tongue" for the Best Rock Rookie. They also won a Best Video award in the 2005 Kerrang! Awards. In November of 2005, the video was nominated for two MTVU Woodie Awards (voted on by college students) and won the Woodie of the Year.
