"Desolation Row" is a 1965 song written and sung by Bob Dylan. It was recorded on August 4, 1965 and released as the closing track of Dylan's sixth studio album, Highway 61 Revisited. It has been noted for its length (11:21) and surreal lyrics in which Dylan weaves characters from history, fiction, the Bible and his own invention into a series of vignettes that suggest entropy and urban chaos. 

My Chemical Romance performed a cover of "Desolation Row", for the 2009 soundtrack of Watchmen. The song peaked at #20 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks in March, 2009. The first chapter of Watchmen ("At Midnight All the Agents") takes its name from a line in the song. This line is also quoted at the end of the chapter. The music video, also directed by Zack Snyder, features references to and imagery from Watchmen, such as the band playing at the fictional "Pale Horse" concert from within the comic. It was the last My Chemical Romance music video to feature Bob Bryar as the band's drummer, prior to his departure from the group.
