Oh, EoC, I almost forgot...

ARE YOU FUCKING HIGH? THERE IS NOT NOW NOR WILL THERE EVER BE ANY SUCH THING AS A COVER OF A MISFITS SONG THAT'S AS GOOD OR BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL. BLASPHEMER! :crankey:

 :lulz:  I didn't think that would be a controversial one.  Wasn't the dude from Prong in Misfits and/or Danzig for a time?  I don't know, I just dig the industrial metal take on the song.

I've got this album Violent World - A Tribute to the Misfits.  It's got some damn decent covers on it.

for future parsing purposes :D
Thanks, EoC


Burnsey if you found a working mp3 of Toxic I'm going to be fairly fucking impressed.  My only file was lost when I busted my old player and I think a big chunk of my friends from the area lost theirs over the years as well.
EoC, you are the bane of my existence.

Yes, Tommy Victor has played with Danzig, also Ministry.

Tommy Victor played with Danzig about a zillion years AFTER Prong covered London Dungeon.

So, not really relevant. That said, I do like the Prong version.

Yeah, I got home and listened to it.  You done good.

I googled it and found a bunch of sites hosting it but I wasn't sure if any of them were legit.  Glad you found a trustworthy one.  :)

If I'm not mistaken, they're from Bremerton.  :lol: Nonetheless, or possibly because of that, I love them.

At worst they can only be the 2nd worst band ever from Bremerton. Because, y'know, MXPX.

OK, I don't, in fact, know MXPX, and I am getting the impression that I'd rather not.  :lol:

I feel like I'm missing something in order to fully appreciate this.
