The Misfits

I never listened to these dudes and always threw them into the Black Flag hardcore camp (which I hated). But recently I checked out a few tunes, and they totally kick ass. They have like a 50s meets punk/hardcore sound, and it rocks. Same genre as the Ramones, I guess, but different.

Anyone listen to the Misfits, or any Hardcore? I'm not a huge fan, but I like some Minor Threat, Bad Brains, Dag Nasty, Avail, Murphy's Law. I used to be a big fan of Bad Religion and Big Drill Car.

Well, there's obviously not a trace of hardcore in The Misfits, but whatever. "Hybrid Moments" remains one of the best songs in the history of recorded music, and that's that.

Yeah, I know they're not hardcore, but for some reason they do get lumped in with Hardcore bands a lot. Maybe cause they played in the same venues back inthe late 70s/early 80s. And some of their members played in the HC bands too. But whatever genre they fall into, they're awesome, and I'm pissed i never gave them a chance until recently. I phail.

i had never listened to the misfits until one of their tracks popped up on a friend's pandora playlist this past fall. i dug the tune and bought collection a couple of weeks later. i love it. i'm going to pick up collection II in the next month or so.

highlights: where eagles dare, i turned into a martian, astro zombies (every song on the damn album is great)

despite the terrible, TERRIBLE production value, there are excellent melodies all over this album. ub's description of the music as "50s + punk" is exactly what i thought when i first gave the band a serious listen.

good stuff.

They blow The Ramones out of the fucking water. Like, no contest.

Legacy of Brutality FTW.

She, Angelfuck, Where Eagles Dare, the aforementioned Hybrid Moments, Some Kinda Hate, Who Killed Marilyn...

Amazing.

I have been listening to this band constantly, for the past few months. Fucking unreal. One of the best ever, easily. Anybody read these? They're both great. The Bonnie "Prince" Billy piece is especially beautiful, honest, and tender. One of the best portraits of fandom I've ever seen. Very moving:

Oh, and while Laz is correct to suggest many of the classic songs on Legacy of Brutality, he fails to note that the mastering on the record is appalling. If you want those songs, then pick up one of the greatest box sets ever--The Coffin. There, you can get both the Legacy mixes and the "real" ones, from the never-released Static Age record (the band's best).

Shit is unbelievable. Seriously, one of the best sets available. Beautiful packaging, terrific notations and records, and, of course, the songs. Good God, the songs...! Shit's right up there with Peel Slowly and See. Magnificent.

I have the coffin too.

And Static Age not having She is what prevents it from being better, even if it does have Bullet.

Ha!! Back in the day I had a sweet Schott Motocycle leather jacket, that I stole from a party---and I painted it up with the Misfits logo. Sorry if I stole your jacket. But it was a punk rock thing to do.

Where Eagles Dare IS a great song.

I actually enjoy Collection II more than the first one, so I think you'll be in for a treat.

Bumped in honor of u2pm, October/Halloween (listening to this while walking in the rain to and from Zombieland, last week, was transcendent), and the fact that the shit-ass, only Only Misfits are playing a ten-minute walk from my childhood home, on October 22. I am contemplating going, if only so that I can be thrown out.

The best video:

One of my friends is going to NYC for their show on Halloween night. If she takes a bunch of cool pictures, which she probably will, I'll try to remember to post them in here if anyone's interested.
