Danzig Days: Tribute Tuesday



Danzig's music, if you didn't catch on by now, is a perfect October soundtrack, mainly because of his dedication to the horrorcore aesthetic. Though his material has grown progressively grim, his Misfits songs pulsed with a morbid glee. The 'Fits broke into the public's awareness in 1987, four years after they'd broken up, when Metallica covered "Last Caress" and "Green Hell," turning the two punk nuggets into a double-shot of bloody molten metal. The tunes don't sound much like original versions, but they do totally nail the band's overall vibe. Murder and damnation never sounded so fun. Enjoy. —D.X. Ferris
