Helena isn’t just the best My Chemical Romance video, it may be one of the best music videos ever made (the video’s director, Marc Webb, feels the same). It takes place at a funeral service, referencing the death of Gerard and Mikey’s grandmother Elena Lee Rush (who was also called Helen) which inspired the track. But this is no ordinary funeral, featuring full-blown dance sequences – including one from the deceased. The choreography is impeccable, from the dancers in front of the podium, to the sequence where they’re snapping in front of the coffin, to the scenes where they’re dancing with umbrellas in the rain. But not only is Helena a treat for the eyes, but it also showed how visually powerful My Chemical Romance were ready to be, and took the band to new artistic heights. It’s no wonder the video earned five MTV VMA nominations in 2005, with one of the winners that year, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, saying that Helena should have won instead. So long, and goodnight.
