The Misfits and Five Other Famous Bands Who've Battled Name Wars

This weekend in South Florida you can catch the Misfits twice -- the first time on Friday at Revolution, and the second on Saturday at Respectable Street as part of the club's free 25th anniversary celebration. This incarnation of the Misfits, helmed by founding member Jerry Only, duly plays all the classic hits you'd expect, plus a smattering of new material from the '00s, like the band's most recent album, 2011's The Devil's Rain.

The only thing is, this particular incarnation of the Misfits bears little resemblance to its classic incarnation, with Only the, uh, only remaining original member, and now the band's frontman. Dez Cadena, former guitarist for Black Flag, and Eric Arce, formerly of Murphy's Law round out the lineup.
