Misfits

Misfits formed in Lodi, N.J., in the late ’70s, just as punk music was catching on in the U.S. Their welding of hardcore and metal to horror-movie imagery led them to the forefront of the horror punk genre. They broke up in 1983, but a renewed interest in their music turned into a partial reunion in 1995, and they continue as a band today. Not so surprisingly, as a group that’s been around for almost 40 years, Misfits have boasted quite a few members over the course of their career, most notably Glenn Danzig, who formed them. Bassist Jerry Only, who’s been around since the start, currently leads the group, taking over vocal duties after Danzig’s departure. Legal battles over the group’s name have long divided Misfits fans, but their influence on numerous genres over the years remains strong.
