Desolation Row (Bob Dylan)

The haunting, 11-plus-minute closing track of Bob Dylan’s 1965 album "Highway 61 Revisited" plays an explicit role in the “Watchmen” graphic novel—the lyric "At Midnight All the Agents" is the title of the first chapter, which then closes with the extended stanza "At midnight, all the agents and the superhuman crew/go out and round up everyone that knows more than they do.” My Chemical Romance’s frantic, three-minute theatrical punk approach to the song is very little like the acoustic original, but may be more in synch with the urgent, action-intense pace of the film.
