Every My Chemical Romance Single Ranked Worst To Best

18. Under Pressure

While the idea of My Chemical Romance and their contemporaries The Used pairing up to cover David Bowie and Queen's seminal duet Under Pressure is certainly exciting, this 2005 cut just doesn't match the heights of the original.

A straightforward cover, the emo legends' take on the rock classic doesn't do enough to differentiate it from the original, with McCracken's vocals in particular leaving something to be desired.

Still, Under Pressure is a beautiful song, and the guitar work on offer here proves Ray Toro and Frank Iero are more than worthy of sitting alongside Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Brian May.
