My Chemical Romance, the platinum princes of pop-punk, have released their latest showcase of musical fame and glory to the UK. MCR’s new video is a black and white Grimm-style fairytale about two freakish lovers who meet under a barren tree.
Though I’m generally not a fan of mainstream, Coldplay-esque rock, there’s something charming about the message of this song. “I Don’t Love You” isn’t an angry tribute to how tragic love is, or a weepy ballad about losing a lover; it encourages people to just admit it if feelings aren’t there. Well played!
