#MusicMonday Trick-Or-Treat — ‘Halloween’ by The Misfits
Posted by KingShamus on October 29, 2012
Featuring none other than Glenn Danzig on lead vocals.
I’m not a huge Misfits fan, but they can be kinda cool. Listen to their early stuff with Danzig and you can hear where Metallica’s James Hetfield got a lot of his vocal style. More than a few songs on Kill ‘Em All and Ride The Lightning could’ve been sang by Danzig and you probably wouldn’t notice it wasn’t James.
The thing about The Misfits is that, even by punk standards, they’re a polarizing band. Either you dig their horror-punk visual aesthetic or you think it’s corny as hell. I lean towards the latter, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t make some great songs in their heyday.
Besides, “Halloween” and The Misfits are pretty much made for this witchy time of the year.
Oh what the heck: Just because this might be my favorite Misfits song, here’s a blast of pure punk rock. (Parental Advisory: F-Bombs).
