The Misfits are a rare exception in rock ‘n’ roll: the band that is truly better off without their original frontman. With Glenn Danzig out of the picture, throwing onstage hissy fits and buying cat treats in New Jersey, original bassist Jerry Only has custody of the band’s iconic horror-punk library, playing the tunes in all their fake-blood delight. Though the 2011 album The Devil’s Rain may not live up to 12 Hits from Hell standards, Only’s faux-Danzig murmur carries the record with help from Black Flag’s Dez Cadena. Even if it’s a few weeks off from Halloween, they still want your skulls.
