My Chemical Romance - Way Won't Play Pulp Cover At Festival
Rockers My Chemical Romance have vowed not to play their cover version of Pulp's hit track Common People when the two bands share the bill at an upcoming festival.
The Welcome to the Black Parade hitmakers performed a rendition of the British band's most popular song during a recent radio broadcast, with frontman Gerard Way admitting he is a huge fan of the track.
They are due to take to the stage at Scotland's T in the Park festival on Sunday (10Jul11) as a warm-up for Pulp - and Way has vowed not to spoil the Britpop band's set by playing the song.
He tells Nme magazine, "I don't know if Jarvis (Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker) has heard it, but we did that cover with total respect for the original. It's a testament to Pulp's music that the song meant so much to me being a cart-pusher in New Jersey with no future, all the way across the ocean... No (we won't play it at the festival), I think it'd be weird. I think it'd bum everybody out! I would want to definitely wait to hear (Pulp play) that song."
