Vampires meet night of the living dead meet 50's hot rodders. Walk Among Us is classic. Favorite song is London Dungeon. Non on Walk Among Us though. They were a different kind of punk band like no other.

One of my old favorite bands. Just pure awesome.


I was lucky to stumble upon them in '78 and saw them twice with Bobby Steele. THE classic lineup..they were GREAT live!

Next to The Ramones they became my favorite punk band.

In my book, they belong on the Mount Rushmore of punk.

So awesome (posting again here with pics, for posterity).

Wow, before the haters start chiming in, this is a major piece of memorabilia for Misfits fans.

This was Jerry Only's main bass (and a Rickenbacker!) during the best period of the band, '79-82, and the one most closely associated with the Danzig era. Amazing that the various pieces were reunited, and that it's available on eBay. :shock:

Bid currently at $1,825 with over six days remaining
