As the reunited original Misfits continue to storm concert arenas, Bloody Roots dives deep into the gory vaults of the DIY 1980s era of this legendary New Jersey horror hardcore gang. Prepare your spinal remains for hits from hell by the Misfits, plus subsequent bands Samhain and Danzig. Crushing Misfits covers by Marduk, Hatebreed, Tribulation, Prong, Enforcer, and Metallica display the stamp of the Crimson Ghost’s influence on all things dark and heavy. Know your Roots!

  1. here is a small blurb about 138 : “This song was written by Misfits lead singer Glenn Danzig, who when asked about the song, says that it is about violence. Then he stops talking and waits for the next question. It’s likely that the 138 is a reference to THX-1138, which was the first movie by George Lucas. In the film, humans have been given names resembling license plates, and THX-1138 is a character portrayed by Robert Duvall who works in a factory making robot police.”
