Not to be confused with one of the two {{Fake Band}}s from ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' They also have nothing to do with [[Film/TheMisfits the final film]] Creator/MarilynMonroe (and Creator/ClarkGable) made (though [[ShoutOut that's where they got their name from.]])

The Misfits are commonly considered one of the most influential underground bands of their generations; laying the groundwork for continuing trends in PunkRock, GothRock, ThrashMetal, and PostHardcore style Music/{{Emo}} (especially Music/MyChemicalRomance who share the same fascination with horror and the undead, but applying it in a much more emotional and theatrical way).

''The Misfits'' are a PunkRock band formed by [[strike: Glenn Allen Anzalone]] Glenn Danzig in 1977 in Lodi, UsefulNotes/NewJersey. The line-up was constantly in flux for most of its existence, with its main members consisting of Glenn Danzig and the bassist Jerry Only. Eventually the classic line-up of Glenn, Jerry, Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein (Jerry's younger brother) and Arthur Googy was settled upon to record ''Walk Among Us.''

Added DiffLines:

** Also the final first era album, ''Earth A.D.'', which took on a more intense HardcorePunk sound and actually featured a couple of songs originally written for ''Samhain''.


Added DiffLines:

* TheThemeParkVersion: The more disturbing and violent features of the original band are shorn off in the revived version, which features a more cartoonish image and has lyrics focused almost exclusively on vintage horror and science fiction films.

Added DiffLines:

* GentleGiant: Despite his imposing appearance, Doyle comes across as a very laid back and well spoken individual in interviews. [[BerserkButton Don't you dare mess with him on stage, though.]] [[YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry He'll make sure you never make that mistake again.]]

The band made a distinct sound combining the buzz saw guitar of Music/TheBuzzcocks with lyrical content mostly about B-Horror movies, Pulp Novels, and trashy pop culture in general. They are the progenitors and still reigning kings of Horror Punk.

** Michele Graves' solo works are essentially darker and more socially relevant successors to his works with The Misfits, with songs about among other things, the Columbine tragedy, and on his latest album, [[Elon Musk's creations becoming sentient and monstrous. TheSingularity]]
