You've got to hand it to Jerry Only and the Misfits. Despite losing Danzig, one of the most iconic lead singers in punk rock history, being sued by said lead singer, losing legions of fans, and suffering resoundingly negative album reviews, The Misfits soldier on. The originators of horror-punk are working on a new album, with Only, Dez Cadena, and Robo all back in the fold. They've relaunched their fan club (The Fiend Club) and continue to tour. Even though they're venturing more into metal territory than the glory days (read: Danzig days), the Misfits still put on a hell of a show.
