This weekend is my favorite holiday and I am in full on Halloween mode. What that means is horror movies every night and a constant flow of The Misfits blaring out of my speakers.
I remember my first time ever hearing of the Misfits. It was in a Marvel comic in the 90’s and in the back they had an ad for a Venom comic. In the add were the lyrics to Brain Eaters. I had to track down this band and hear this! The first Misfits record I bought was from a used cd store. It was the second collection and the cover with the brown Crimson Ghost on the front was all I needed to see to know I was going to love this even before I heard it. I read the liner notes and was surprised to find out that Glen Danzig who I knew from Mother was the lead singer of this band. The rest was history. I loved every second of that cd and tracked down ever cd I could of theirs. I wore a Misfits shirt almost everyday from then on, painted them all over my leather coat and even got the Crimson Ghost as my first tattoo. I have seen them numerous times live with Michael Graves as I am to young to have seen them in their prime but the couple of times I have seen Danzig and he plays a Misfits tune it almost seems like it for me. I love both incarnations of the band and I bet I could sing every single song from heart.
