My Chemical Romance's "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge" is one of this past year's undeniable rock success stories. The band's lead single from its major-label debut, "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)," was a top five track at modern rock, pushing the album past gold. "Helena," the album's first track, is even catchier than "I'm Not Okay." It's another pop-punk song that bursts with energy�Xeven though it was written about singer Gerard Way's grandmother. The song's vocal harmonies and anthemic chorus almost guarantee that it will soon be closing the band's live shows. "Helena" just debuted on the modern chart and should carry My Chemical Romance well through the summer, when it will be a main attraction on the Vans Warped tour.�XBT
