The Misfats - Misfits Tribute E.P.

And finally, we have the worlds FATTEST Misfits tribute band. Unfortunately I wasn't able to discover this band until they hung it up. I posted this quite some time ago but feel it deserves a repost. Immensely entertaining cover tunes changed with, of course, food related lyrics. Sadly, there are only 4 and a half songs, all great. If you'd like, for some extra entertainment follow this LINK. It has all the Misfats lyrics.

The Bitchfits - Bitches Doin' Misfits

How about a bonus post or two today? Since Wednesday is Misfits Day, and since I previously posted a Misfits cover song project howzabout we listen to a couple Misfits tribute bands?

First up we have the all girl tribute band from New Jersey, The Bitchfits. 5 pretty good renditions. Apparently they had another release called 'Hate Is Your Mistress'. Anyone have that by chance?

Misfits - Project 1950

By 2003 Jerry Only stood as the lone original Misfit. But he managed to recruit punk stalwarts Dez Cadena and Markey Ramone for this cover song project. Tunes from the 50's and 60's delivered with the typical Misfits panache.

The Damned - Phantasmagoria

Some time in the early 80's the legendary punk band The Damned moved towards a darker, slower goth sound. Here's their 1985 release. Not sure how much I like it, but I do like it.

Wednesday 13 - Transylvania 90210: Songs Of Death, Dying, And The Dead

2005 saw the first release of the band Wednesday 13. And for the last 10 years they keep pumping out releases and touring. Of course this hasn't stopped Wednesday's penchant for side projects. These include the outlaw country (yes that's correct) Bourbon Crow and a glam punk partnership with Todd Youth as Gunfire 76. As for today's post, it's a perfect continuation of the horror punk style we've come to know and love.

Murderdolls - Beyond The Valley Of The Murderdolls

Around 2002 Wednesday 13 got together with a guy from Slipknot and others to form the Murderdolls. They only lasted a couple years before their initial break up, releasing this cd in 2002. Many of the songs were originally released by Frankenstein Drag Queens but the versions on this release are considerably more powerful. The band reformed for a short stint around 2010 and released one album before calling it quits for good.

Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13 - Night Of The Living Drag Queens

This weekend we're going to take a quick trip through some of the highlights of the spooktacular Wednesday 13. In 1996 Wednesday formed the Frankenstein Drag Queens and released several albums between then and their demise in 2006. This is their second release, from 1998. Excellent horror trash.
