May Death Never Stop You is a greatest hits compilation album by American goth / punk / emo band My Chemical Romance, released in March 2014 by Reprise Records.

My Chemical Romance (MCR) may be the perfect new millennial rock band. Always poised for a significant hit, they instead wound up with a devoted cult following that peaked around the release of 2006's The Black Parade, a gobsmacked concept album on par with the best out there. But MCR were always more in tune with teen angst and were always more fun, as May Death Never Stop You: The Greatest Hits 2001-2013 proves.

The compilation contains three demos plus the new song "Fake Your Death", which opens a compilation that otherwise diligently marches forth in chronological order. The debut, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, is limited to two songs - "Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough For The Two Of Us" and "Vampires Will Never Hurt You" - leaving the molten rock of Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge plenty of room. The Black Parade is the deserved centrepiece of this collection, represented with five songs and its strong follow-up, Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys, has four songs.

The key to Black Parade and Danger Days is how MCR embraced theatricality - the overblown drama inherent to leader Gerard Way's beloved comics - and they could translate it well to record. They had records worth hearing in full - The Black Parade, certainly, plus Three Cheers and Danger Days - but the great thing about May Death Never Stop You is how it showcases all their brilliant, florid moments so they sound like visionaries without a continent to call home.

Maybe they could've been bigger stars, but they channelled all the sturm and drang of the new millennium into heady goth-punk operas that still sound great when broken down into their individual elements, as this fine compilation proves.

Check out the tracks: “Vampires Will Never Hurt You”; “Fake Your Death”; “SING”; “I’m Not OK (I Promise)” and “The Kids From Yesterday”.

This Limited Edition double LP housed in a gatefold sleeve is pressed in Europe on black vinyl.
