Misfits - Legacy Of Brutality
Chris Cockrell, Josh Homme and Brant Bjork really got me into the Misfits. I was still exploring punk rock in middle school - bands like Suicidal Tendencies and Fear - but the Misfits eluded me for some reason. But when I got properly introduced, I knew I was experiencing a whole other level of punk rock. When you have something that's mean and gritty and dirty and fast but with melody and lyric on top of that - sometimes it marries very well and becomes beautiful and I literally wore this record out.

I just feel like that when I revisit old horror movies. Is that young lad Jack Nicholson in The Raven? How he jumps out the castle's window in the middle of an electric storm at night, wearing a tight though unprotective outfit! The Cult should have used it for one of their songs.... You tell me which.
