Even though the band was finished before I was even born, I've loved them since the first time I heard them, sometime back in Grade School. When I first started playing my guitar with bands in people's basements, we played Black Sabbath and the Misfits. If I really stop to think about it, I'll always put Glenn Danzig in my top 5 vocalists. Sometimes I even think about getting a misfits tattoo. But not this one...
I came across this today while trolling the internet for hookers and I am dumbfounded by it on so many levels. I can't even imagine what this guy is going to do for the rest of his life. He's pretty much resigned himself to being in movies like Dee Snider's "Strangeland" for the rest of his life. Or he could be one of the gang-bangers in the first Batman movie that had Chris O'Donnell. Remember those magnificient neon bastards?
Now there's a face that won't have trouble finding a job. Unless it's in a hit movie.
I feel like even the members of the various groups that have used the Misfits name would see this guy and say, "Errr, maybe a bit overboard... mmm?"
I don't care if this song is about killing babies and violent sex with the listener's mother. The first time I heard this song, I knew by the end of the first two bars that it was a beautiful song. It really is.
Probably the most artful use of the phrase "Masturbate Me" to ever be used in conjunction with a historical analysis of the JFK assassination.
If you can listen to this song and "Last Caress" and tell me that Danzig doesn't have ridiculous chops as a vocalist, then you can go straight to purgatory.
This live track is hilarious. Take notice of how Henry doesn't seem to have a consistent handle on the lyrics and devotes himself instead to wordless screaming. In all fairness, this was recorded during a time period when Rollins was supposedly ingesting tons of Acid.
