    One of the greatest bands ever imo, with a sense of melody few bands have ever achieved. I can listen to them in any mood and within 5 mins I'll be grinning like a fool and singing along.

    The Misfits are great! When I was a kid, Danzig was my hero - I even grew a deathlock! Your description of the Misfits is awesome and I can relate, they're like an old hat for me. They've got a wicked style that's influenced alot of other music (the first to wear corpse paint!) and took punk to place it's never been before - unfortunately they influenced alot of the Hot Topic music as well...

    I actually learned how to sing and play guitar doing Misfits covers with my band. We did so many Misfits covers, we actually considered being just a Misfits cover band.

    Danzig-era Misfits only. I enjoy the Samhain material way more just because it was a nice mix of Misfits and what was to be Danzig.

    Oh, all I want to know
    All I want

    With just a touch of my burning hand
    I send my astro zombies to rape the land
    Prime directive, exterminate
    The whole human race

    And your face drops in a pile of flesh
    And then your heart, heart pounds
    Till it pumps in death
    Prime directive, exterminate
    Whatever stands left

    All I wanted to say
    And all I gotta do
    Whod I do this for
    Hey, me or you

    And all I wanted to say
    And all I gotta do
    Whod I do this for
    Hey, me or you

    Oh, all I want to know
    All I want

    With just a touch of my burning hand
    Im gonna live my life to to destroy your world
    Prime directive, exterminate
    The whole fuckin race

    Then your face drops in a pile of flesh
    And then your heart, heart pounds
    And it pumps in death
    Prime directive, exterminate
    The whole fuckin place well

    All I wanted to say
    And all I gotta do
    Whod I do this for
    Hey, me or you

    And all I wanted to say
    And all I gotta do
    Whod I do this for
    Hey, me or you

    Oh, all I want to know
    All I want to know
    All I want to know
    All I want oh
    Go

    My favourite line, because it's sung so cheerfully:

    "Rip the heads off little girls and put 'em on my wall
    Hack the heads of little girls and put 'em on my wall!"

    The newer Misfits stuff contains some well-written songs, but it just doesn't cut it without Danzig. That and the fact that it's overproduced.

    The Misfits and Samhain are killer.

    My band The Obliterate Plague had a few halloweens where we would do quite a few misfits songs. We probably slaughtered them, except for Death Comes Ripping which we made more our own style.
    I can't sing that Danzig style, it just don't happen.

    Death Comes Ripping!!!!!

    Actually it can be attributed to KISS and Alice Cooper in the early 70's first followed by Misfits, The Damned, King Diamond(in the band before Mercyful Fate.. Black Rose in 1978)...

    The best lyrics are from Bullet:

    Arise Jackie O, Jonathon of Kennedy
    Well, arise and be shot down
    The dirt's gonna be your dessert
    My cum be your life source
    And the only way to get it
    Is to suck or fuck
    Or be poor and devoid
    And masturbate me, masturbate me
    Then slurp it from your palm
    Like a dry desert soaking up rain
    Soaking up sun
    Like a dry desert soaking up rain
    Soaking up sun!!
