STAGGERS, THE: One Heartbeat Away From Hell: CD

Seeing as some of the especially thick out there have yet to grasp the concept, let me repeat it one more time: There was only one Misfits, and they broke up in 1983, the minute Glenn “The Ego” Danzig decided to throw in the towel. They were a helluva good band and no one since has come close, and it is highly unlikely that anyone ever will. Love ‘em and appreciate the fine tunes they managed to leave behind, but for chrissakes, let ‘em die already and quit pissing on their legacy. To the Staggers’ credit, they’re a little more conscious of Glenn’s country influence than the average band of punters, but that doesn’t mean they suck any less.
