Anyone recall them from the late 80s/early 90s? I remember they had a couple of cracking songs. I also recall Glenn Danzing being a bit of an asshole I think. Still, some meaty, bluesy riffs to be had there. Mother, Twist of Cain etc.

Of course I remember Danzig, Andy! And yeah from the interviews I've read he looked a bit like an asshole, but he had an amazing band back in the day, his first 4 albums were great. I thought about him the other day cause I heard Twist of Cain (which I love) in some film or maybe it was in some TV show...

Yeah, for some reason it just popped in my head and so had to download a few tracks from their first 3 albums. I used to own 'em back in the day but have no idea what happened to them.

The Misfits are considered 'up there' in the 'punk' pantheon.
How ironic that they were signed by Rick Rubin, the grand puba of our own Jayhawks' label: Def American Records.

Here's the wik-data, an interesting tale.

I've heard Glenn's a bit of a control freak, but you know what? I don't give a rip, his records are pretty consistent. The goth dudes all wish they were him...

The debut album is great and , like The Ramones, all you really need is one album. They played Cain on Entourage, Jony. Maybe that's where you saw it. Hear James Hetfield on backing vocals there?

Hell yeah, the first couple of Danzig albums are damn good. The Misfits were cool as well, and his other band Samhain.

Oh yeah! In the strip club, right? Funny, I've only caught a couple of Entourage episodes, and got that one.
