Taking their name from the title of Marilyn Monroe’s final movie, The Misfits is a punk rock icon whose B Horror film-referenced music and brash sensibility set them apart from the pack. The iconic “Fiend Skull,” once crudely painted on their equipment and leather jackets has become a staple in pop culture, and an instantly recognizable symbol worldwide. Highly collectible and sought after, Misfits memorabilia has appeared in films and on television and continues to be worn by A-listers worldwide.
Forty years on, the Misfits have endured hardcore’s heyday as punk rock’s monster squad, a band whose cult following – a pseudo-secret coven known as the Fiend Club – inspired them to continue to write, record and tour. These “Fiends” (as their fans are known), which are still multiplying globally, go back now several generations and also includes many artists.
In fact, bands across the spectrum of rock have offered their tribute by covering the band’s material, including Guns ‘n Roses, with the classic Misfits song “Attitude;” My Chemical Romance who revisited the classic “Astro Zombies” for the soundtrack to “Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland” video game, and Metallica who covered no less than three Misfits songs on their double CD set “Garage Days Revisited,” while hailing the band as a key influence on their music. A tribute album entitled VIOLENT WORLD featured the likes of Prong, NOFX and Sick of It All.
After a split with former singer Glenn Danzig in the mid 1980’s and a decade-long legal battle, The Misfits was resurrected by founding member Jerry Only, returning stronger than ever with their first album of new material, “American Psycho”. Released in 1997 on Geffen Records and debuting at #117 on Billboard’s Top 200, the CD reestablished the Misfits as one of the most aggressive and still relevant outfits in modern rock history.
“It was great making a new record and getting back in touch with our fans,” says Only. “Sticking to our punk roots, the longest song on the album is three minutes and nine cuts are under two. We still had the classic backup vocals, the ’50s sounding chord progressions, the different beats, but the sound of our instrumentation was way better than what was possible when we started out.”
One thing is known for certain, The Misfits are here to stay and once again, every day is Halloween.
Brian Schroeder (a.k.a. Pushead) is an artist, record label owner, and writer within the hardcore punk and heavy metal cultures. He was first active as the singer for the band Septic Death, obscure during their 1980s career but later recognized as pioneers of the thrashcore genre, gaining reviews in The Rocket and Creem. Schroeder has since worked primarily as an artist, often featuring images of skulls and skeletons in his work. He has created artwork for many bands, artists, and athletes including Metallica, Misfits, Dr. Dre, Travis Barker, Rocket From The Crypt, and Kool Keith. He has designed many record covers, T-shirts (most notably for Thrasher), skateboards, and two pairs of Nike SB Dunks.
