“Psycho ’78!”

The Misfits – “Horror Business” from Horror Business 7″ (1979) and Misfits/Collection I (1986)

Night of the Living Dead” from Walk Among Us (1982)

Happy Hell-o-ween. Those of us who harbor a distaste for the Ramones (ahem, Jordy, ahem) might enjoy the Misfits’ brand of fuzzy ’50s-pop punk rock. The Misfits sound a little less alien (tee, hee) than the Ramones to these ears. While the Ramones have a dull, thuddy surface making the tunes a little tough to hear at first, the Misfits have a certain poppy sheen: they often sound like the Doors sped up.

Though they have impeccable taste in movies, the Misfits have the most confusing discography and release history ever. Get your fix here.

    Let’s not be too harsh toward the Jord-man.

    No worries. I make no apologies for my distaste for the Ramones. In fact, would anyone like to buy a pristine copy of their reissued debut? Competitive price!

    I already own both the reissue and the twofer “All The Stuff and More Vol. 1” which includes both “Ramones” and “Leave Home” (a superior record, IMO).
