    Uh dude, the Misfits have been back together for the better part of a decade. Jerry Only and Glenn Danzig settled the licensing issues, Jerry has the right to use the band name and songs and I'm sure Glenn still gets a piece of the action.

    When they first reformed they brought in a few Danzig replacements. Then they went really "comic book" and sort of became a tacky farce of the original band. They put out an insane amount of crappy merchandise and re-released tracks.

    When I saw them 2 years ago in Baltimore it was Jerry Only playing bass and singing, Marky Ramone playing drums and Dez from Black Flag on guitar. They did 1/3 Misfits songs, 1/3 Black Flag songs and 1/3 Ramones songs..... my friends and I called it the "grandfathers of punk" show. Pretty lame, and they are just doing it for the money now.

    They were never "punk" but I enjoyed the melodrama of teenage life through their lyrics.

    I was shocked when I saw the track list of their Greatest Hits comp. Last thing I remember hearing from them was "Adam's Song" and apparently they had a number of huge hits after that.

    Mediocre even by '90s punk-pop standards, but "Dammit" is pretty unfuckwithable. (Always wondered why these guys sold a bazillion albums while Less Than Jake is still touring small clubs.)

    uuugh.... I'm sure they are doing it for the money.

    You mean Blink-182 isn't getting back together for the sake of their art?


    PS: their cover of Dancing With Myself r0x0rs.

    which original members? the ACTUAL original members never recorded a record together. edit: oh yeah, and, to keep this on topic, I would say that Blink182 is one of the worst things to happen to modern music in recent memory.
