Best Misfits Song

Simple, pick your favorite Misfit song from the Glenn Danzig era.  I subjectively created the list, so deal with it.

It actually isn't that simple due to them all being so great.  

It was between London Dungeon and Hybrid Moments, but Hybrid Moments gets my difficult vote.

Skulls...but it was a tough choice.  Teenagers from Mars and Vampira could have also made the list, as the Latin version of Halloween, too.  BUT, good choices none-the-less, dude.  

I bought the coffin box set about 10 or so years ago.  Friggin' cool.  The disks came in a coffin.  

What's not to like about these lyrics?:

The corpses all hang headless and limp
bodies with no surprises
and the blood drains down like devil's rain
we'll bathe tonight

i want your skulls
i need your skulls
i want your skulls
i need your skulls

Demon i am and face i peel
to see your skin turned inside out
'cause gotta have you on my wall
gotta have you on my wall,

'cause i want your skulls
i need your skulls
i want your skulls
i need your skulls

Go collect the heads of little girls and put 'em on my wall
hack the heads off little girls and put 'em on my wall

oh oh i want your skulls
i need your skulls
i want your skulls
i need your skulls

i want your skulls
i need your skulls
i want your skulls
i need your skulls

Here's the song.

It really was damn near impossible to narrow it down to 10, and you are certainly right about other songs well deserving of making the cut.  Skulls is a great song, it's my buddies favorite, he has a massive green Crimson Ghost Skull tatted on his right arm.

Skulls for me
Aequitas - Veritas (is Latin)
Cóir - Fírinne
Justice - Truth

HYBRID MOMENTS

If youre gonna scream, scream with me
Moments like this never last
When do creatures rape your face
Hybrids opened up the door

Ooh baby when you cry
Your face is momentary
You hide your looks behind these scars

In hybrid moments
Give me a moment

Give me a moment
Give me a moment

Ooh baby when you cry
Your face is momentary
You hide your looks behind these scars

In hybrid moments
In hybrid moments

In hybrid moments
In hybrid moments

Give me a moment
Give me a moment

LONDON DUNGEON
They wrote this in response to being locked up in a London Jail

They called us walking corpses
Unholy living dead
They had to lock us up
Put us in their british hell

Make sure your face is clean now
Cant have no dirty dead
All the corpses here are clean, boy
All the yanks in british hell

I dont wanna be here in your london dungeon
I dont wanna be here in your british hell
Aint no mystery why Im in misery in hell
Heres hoping youre swell

They called us walking corpses
Unholy living dead
They had to lock us up
Put us in their british hell

I dont wanna be here in your london dungeon
I dont wanna be here in your british hell
Aint no mystery why Im in misery in hell
Heres hoping youre swell

Make sure your face is clean now
Cant have no dirty dead
All the corpses here are clean, boy
All the yanks in british hell

I dont wanna be here in your london dungeon
I dont wanna be here in your british hell
Aint no mystery why Im in misery in hell

Heres hoping youre swell
Heres hoping youre swell
Heres hoping youre swell
Heres hoping youre swell

I'm taking out the box set today.  I should probably break something too....

Die Die, My Darling

Die, die, die my darling
Dont utter a single word
Die, die, die my darling
Just shut your pretty mouth

Ill be seeing you again
Ill be seeing you in hell

Dont cry to me oh baby
Your futures in an oblong box, yeah
Dont cry to me oh baby
Should have seen it a-comin on
Dont cry to me oh baby
I dont know it was in your power
Dont cry to me oh baby
Dead-end girl for a dead-end guy
Dont cry to me oh baby
Now your life drains on the floor
Dont cry to me oh baby

Die, die, die my darling
Dont utter a single word
Die, die, die my darling
Just shut your pretty mouth

Ill be seeing you again
Ill be seeing you in hell

Dont cry to me a baby
Your future is in an oblong box
Dont cry to me oh baby
Should have seen the end a-comin on, a-comin
Dont cry to me oh baby
I dont know it was in your power
Dont cry to me oh baby
Dead-end girl for a dead-end guy
Dont cry to me oh baby
Now your life drains on the floor
Dont cry to me oh baby

Die, die, die my darling
Dont utter a single word
Die, die, die my darling
Shut your pretty mouth

Ill be seeing you again
Ill be seeing you in hell

Dont cry to me oh baby
Die, die, die my darling
Dont cry to me oh baby
Die, die, die my darling
Die, die, die my darling
Die, die, die my darling

Die, die, die, die, die, die....


"You're future's in an oblong box..."  Awesome.

He didn't sing it.  It's a solid song.  Mr. Graves is the one on vocals.  He did as gods as job as possible in the post Danzig era.
