When are the Misfits not the Misfits? Well, legally speaking, the Misfits are the Misfits as long as founder member and bassist Jerry Only is performing in the band. After all, he and Glenn Danzig fought legal battles over this stuff years ago. That’s why the band that have just finished touring the UK bears very little resemblance to any of the classic line-ups of the band that have come over to these shoes before. They don’t even have Michael Graves as a vocalist anymore.
The Misfits are an American punk rock band founded in 1977 in Lodi, New Jersey, by vocalist Glenn Danzig. They are often recognized as the forefathers of the 'horror punk' style, blending punk rock with horror film influences. Their early albums Walk Among Us and Earth A.D./Wolfs Blood are considered touchstones of the 1980s hardcore punk movement. The band has gone through many lineup changes over the years, with bassist Jerry Only being the only constant member over the band's lifespan. Read more on Last.fm
