A brilliant first album followed by dissapointments ever since. Glenn will have to pin his hopes on the Misfits if he wants in.

Posted by Kit on Tuesday, 01.23.07 @ 13:42pm


the first album was amazing but many of the others are incredible as well. and the misfits were only the first step, Danzig trumps them and Samhain compeltely. You have no idea what you're talking about.

DANZIG wrote pages of Punk/Rock/Metal music history, with hes MISFITS / SAMHAIN / DANZIG, has influenced so many important bands like METALLICA, ROB ZOMBIE, AFI and countless others, he wrote songs for JOHNNY CASH "Thirteen" and ROY ORBISON two of the biggest artists in the Rock and Roll history, his songs have benn covered by METALLICA, BEHEMOTH, GUNS 'N' ROSES, ENTOMBED, NOFX, AFI among others. He deserve to be in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame, and even because every DANZIG fan wants to see him in!!!

The guy that said Glenn will have to pin his hopes on the Fits to get in is a moron. Learn about real music why don't ya! Put Danzig in or Hell shall rain down upon you. This guy invinted Horror Punk and Goth Punk and Blues Metal and Goth Metal and he is the very difinition of Bad Assedness!

This guy invinted Horror Punk and Goth Punk and Blues Metal and Goth Metal and he is the very difinition of Bad Assedness! - matt

Horro Punk; Goth Punk; Goth Metal - okay.

Blues Metal - I think it was done long before Danzig lifted his first barbell. But you may want to check the latter part of the 60's, just to be sure.

has influenced so many important bands like METALLICA, ROB ZOMBIE, AFI and countless others -John S.

When did Rob Zombie become so important to music? I am just wondering.

As for Danzig getting inducted. I guess he meets stated criteria, but I have a feeling the HoF isn't going to care too much. I do love me some Misfits. I just saw them at the Warsaw in Brooklyn on the 21st. Obviously Danzig was not with them.

Posted by Dameon on Friday, 05.9.08 @ 10:41am


Man, Glenn has been an inspiration for many ever since the 70's. Come on, He's presley meets the doors all in one. What more do you want!?! All the way from the beginning to the sounds that echo from the back streets of New Orleans... Awsome dude, awsome.....

He is a legend...i have been a fan before they even made their first album, I have even met DANZIG and has attitude...thats what i ilke about him.. he desereves the hall of fame

Posted by Tony on Tuesday, 05.13.08 @ 10:32am


Dameon, Blues Metal was just Metal in the 70's. No such thing as 60's Metal! Black Sabbath may have had a blues influence, but that was purely netural and unintended. The ZIG however, invented Blues Metal as a true off shoot of plain Heavy Metal. Like or not, Dameon, Danzig did invent Blues Metal...you obviously know nothing about true music!

Posted by matt on Wednesday, 05.14.08 @ 13:57pm


Matt - did you have a rough day today?

Posted by Dameon on Wednesday, 05.14.08 @ 14:16pm


Ahahahah Dameon, you rock!

Matt go listen your 70's and 60's stuff, Danzig is not for you! Danzig is not for people that don't know nothing about a great artist like him!

He wrote page of music history if you like it or not, thats the truth!

Posted by Gianni on Thursday, 05.15.08 @ 06:11am


HE'S GLENN FKN DANZIG , ENOUGH SAID, HE'S JIM MORRISON AND ELVIS IN ONE .LOL HE LEAD 3 SUCCESSFUL BANDS AND HAS NEVER SOLD HIM SELF OUT, NOT LIKE OZZY

Posted by metal vince on Friday, 05.16.08 @ 22:00pm


I know ZIG, I am ZIG, I live ZIG! Most of you morons are probably AFI, Chemicl Romance, nerds and know nothing of true ZIG power! You can't be a late comer and act like you've been a fan forever. I own the first ZIG record on vinyl. First print. Bought it the day it came out. Loved the FITS and lived for SAMHAIN. Most of you probably have no idea who SAMHAIN is. Ya'll just know my man Glenn as the first frontman for the FITS. Hell, I even think that BLACK ARIA 1 and 2 are some of the best music ever recorded. You may own the c.d.s but have you ever listened to them all the way through? Do you own the comics, the d.v.ds, the box sets, The soundtracks, the books? Hell no! Get a life and jump back on that AFI train Dameon and company. I'm the only true ZIG fan to post as of yet...apparently!

Wow matt - Uber-dork personified.

Posted by shawn on Sunday, 05.18.08 @ 16:12pm


Most of you probably have no idea who SAMHAIN is. - Matt

Samhain was a side project of Danzig. The name was taken from the biggest of all Celtic holidays. (Not the Boston Celtics) Halloween was the Christian takeoever of the holiday when they were attempting to reform the Celtic beliefs. Actually these is much more to it, but I figured you might want to pick up a book and learn for yourself.

I am a fan of Danzig, so I am not quite sure what your problem is here Matt.

Posted by Dameon on Sunday, 05.18.08 @ 17:05pm


SAMHAIN was only a side project 'till the ZIG himself decided to make it his mianstay after the FITS. Learn something about music, dameon!

Posted by matt on Monday, 05.19.08 @ 08:22am


Wow, shawn - Judgemental asshole personified.

Posted by bob on Monday, 05.19.08 @ 08:26am


According to you Matt - we weren't even supposed to know about Samhain. I guess that pissed you off that I do know about the band.

You are right; it became a full-time gig for Danzig for three years with 3 studio releases, one of them being an EP. This doesn't count the Live LP and Box Set.

Posted by Dameon on Monday, 05.19.08 @ 09:40am


Hey bob - read matt's post above mine that cals him the Uber-dork and tell me that he doesn't scream it by telling us all maniacally how he is the one, true and only real DANZIG fan (GARRRRRRR!!), what with his books and box sets and dvds and comics. Judgmental? Yea, OK, I "judge" matt a weird little meatl troll dork, yup I do.

Posted by shawn on Monday, 05.19.08 @ 15:03pm


Glenn Danzig can go suck on Nick 'The Stripper' Cave's bollocks.

If he doesn't, me, Dead Joe, The Dim Locater, Hamlet (POW POW POW), Big Jesus Trash Can and The Kewpie Doll are gonna sort him out. Big style.

DANZIG the legend!!!

Deserve to be in the Rock Hall!!!

Posted by Gianni on Thursday, 05.22.08 @ 06:19am


shawn - bob - matt - and especially dameon. sounds to me like you guys like pickin' on each other more than you like the band. grow up! as a true fan I would just like to say that Danzig has been the only artist in heavy music history to do it all. punk - goth - blues - metal - industrial -ambient, Glenn's the man. well worth an induction to this hall of fame.

Posted by harrison on Thursday, 05.29.08 @ 07:15am


Harrison - you don't have to be a fan to have an opinion. And if you look at most of the comments, no one is saying that Danzig doesn't deserve to be in the HoF. The Misfits were very important to RnR. I think he and the band deserve the accolade, but I am don't know what the Hall committee will decide with him and his bands.

Posted by Dameon on Thursday, 05.29.08 @ 12:07pm


Harrison you rock man!!!

Hail DANZIG!

Posted by Gianni on Friday, 05.30.08 @ 13:58pm


Danzig changed my life and music history!!!
HE IS A GOD! HE JUST DESERVES IT!
His voice so sensual and brutal is unique.
However,I prefer what he did with the Misfits(I've got the skull tattoed on my arm!)and Samhain.
HORRORPUNK RULES!!!

Posted by Samantha on Monday, 06.2.08 @ 11:30am


The man has pretty much has tackled so many genres of music, and his resume is impressive enough to make it into the hall. To have Johnny Cash AND Roy Orbison record your work is a feat in itself.

Posted by Jim on Sunday, 06.8.08 @ 11:00am


he influenced every genre today, AFI and Chemical Romance and even penned two songs for Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison

Posted by charles on Thursday, 06.19.08 @ 00:32am


"he influenced every genre today,"

STFU.

Posted by Liam on Thursday, 06.19.08 @ 11:16am


DANZIG - is the third chapter of an amazing career spanning 3 decades almost. If I were the Hall 'O' Fame, I would put Zig - Samhain - and The Fits in all at once. And I would've put 'em in years ago!

Posted by loman on Wednesday, 06.25.08 @ 07:36am


Please allow Glenn into the Rock Hall.
He has been my favorite musician since I was in the 7th grade.
The Misfits,Samhain,and most recently for 20 yrs Danzig,are my 3 favorite bands of all time.
This man has influenced Rock music like no other.
Metallica has been influenced by Glenn's legeacy.
For the sake of Punk,Goth,and Metal music,allow Glenn into the Rock Hall,he has been busting his balls for more than 30 yrs.

Posted by Drake Engelhart on Thursday, 07.10.08 @ 13:25pm


The man has an awesome voice, and whomever he has backing him are pretty much top flight musicians. Despite all he has done, I have to agree w/ Dameon's early post and say that the Hall really isn't going to care. It's a pity really, because he has straddled the line between commercial and underground for years, and is one of the rare artists to get away w/ it and influence a fair amount of acts in the process. Definitely an underrated figure.

Posted by Cheesecrop on Thursday, 07.10.08 @ 16:02pm


well theres not much I can say that has'nt been said before Danzig is the Johnny Cash of Rock n' Roll.The true "Man In Black"

Posted by MATTHEW SHAVER on Saturday, 08.2.08 @ 12:02pm


My take-

Glenn Danzig in all his various band coat of arms deserves to be in the hall of fame. Anyone who says his music was disappointing after the first album never listined beyond the first album. How the Gods Kill and Danzig 4 were some of the only Metal albums to ever crack the Billboard top 40. Danzig 4 coincidentally peaked at number 4. I usually dont put much stock in Billboard this top 10 that but that is impressive for anyone and earn's HOF brownie-points. After that he decided that Rick Rubin(producer on Danzig 1-4) was not treating him and the band right and, trying to control them so her left. and ever since then he has been an underground metal god. and I say other than Danzig 5 (Blackaciddevil)all of his albums have been phenominal and they all get prepetually heavier culminating with his last release (circle of snackes) featuring Prong's axe master Tommy Victor on guitar. The riffs are so heavy on that album that the sound feels like it pulls air away from your ears. (ohhhhh, evil delight), not to mention the songs themselves just kill. I say its the best album he has done since the first three. However, I digress from the topic at hand. Danzig in the Hall. Ok, While Danzigs overall albuym sales are greater than half the bands in the hall(brownie-point) his influence is felt throughout all of metal, hard rock, and punkl. Metallica, rob zombie( he wears a huge Samhain Patch on his back in the Thunderkiss '65 video), afi, My chemical (fag, oh, sorry) ro-mance, and countless others. His songs have been covered by nearly all the aforementioned bands and even many other black metal bands such as Cradle of Filth and others, giving hints that his influence knows now oceanic boundries. As was also said above he wrote principal songs for both Johnny cash and Roy Orbison. whioch shows the respect of his peers that he has earned.And if at least two Hall of Famers say he is good enough to write songs for them then he is good enough to join them in the Hall.

Posted by Will on Tuesday, 08.12.08 @ 08:37am


Glenn Danzig is my favorite artist. He has written hundreds of killer songs and covered about every genre of good music out there. He has sold millions of albums with basically no radio play or media coverage. Many artist today consider him their greatest influence and cover many of his songs. Glenn remains true to himself and makes the music he wants to and he doesn't water it down to sell albums to the herd. He has a legion of fans that will always remain loyal to his endeavors. Danzig is a God among men!!

Danzig OWNS you all....KNOW THAT! Danzig 2014

Posted by Shane on Thursday, 08.28.08 @ 00:57am


Earlier today I actually heard "Mother" on a university station, of all things. They were doing a top 5/10 whatever list regarding a theme, and this was picked. It is amazing how fresh the song still sounds. I haven't listened to anything by Danzig for a while, but I find myself compelled to try and dig some stuff out. Most of the stuff I have is on cassette, and digging through it all takes a while, given the extraneous clutter involved.

Posted by Cheesecrop on Thursday, 08.28.08 @ 16:58pm


DANZIG has heavily influenced the metal world with his dark music and dark imagery. The MISFITS led by DANZIG have influenced most of the punk bands that you have heard today.DANZIG has always stuck to his guns and resisted the corporat sell outs that populate most of music today. DANZIG belongs in the HALL!

Danzig rules period

Posted by rob on Saturday, 09.6.08 @ 09:43am


Danzig rules WHAT, exactly?? I really wish people would quit using that idiotic phrase on this site!! Outside of his devoted fans and people into that particular type of music, who's even heard of him. My exposure to him is limited at best! KBPI, which is THE hard rock station in the Rocky Mountain region, never played it that much.

Once again...how was he innovative, who did he influence, and how much of an impact did he have on prepetuating the music???

Posted by Gitarzan on Saturday, 09.6.08 @ 09:51am


glenn danzig is a god , he is the greatest rock and roll vocalist of all time , anyone who says no in this vote should be castarated with a rusty butterknife or sodomized with a football

the misfits should have been inducted five years ago , so whats the deal with all that

Posted by m-dizzy on Saturday, 09.6.08 @ 10:06am


Actually Gitarzan - I have to give creit where it is due. From the Misfits to Danzig, he has crossed different genres and the Misfits were one of the prime bands of its day. Extrenely influential in Hardcore and Metal. Kind of an offspring of Sabbath and Pistols.

He is certainly not the greatest vocalist of all time (that belongs to Freddie), but they and he were extremely influential. I think Wenner will never allow him in if only because he would be afrad that Danzig would beat the crao out of him onstage.

Posted by Dameon on Saturday, 09.6.08 @ 11:35am


Dameon...yep, I'll admit that I'm just not that familiar with them. They didn't seem to get a lot of airplay in this area. I just had to make a comment about the "so & so rules" thing followed by the "masterpiece" by m-dizzy. I'm glad there are a few people like you and a few others to have intelligent conversations with.

Posted by Gitarzan on Saturday, 09.6.08 @ 15:06pm


I also liked their s/t debut (humming Twist Of Cain) while typing) but not so sure they're RRHOF worthy.

Okay all of the people who think Danzig's first album was his best are by far out of touch of what Danzig stands for. All of his album's unlike other groups envolve different times in his life. Like life he moves with it. I personally love Danzig 4 there is so much emotion there. Rock is about life and using your experiences to tell your own story. I know Glenn and he is a beautiful person and he has so much depth to him that includes more than just screaming lyrics out and being hardcore all the time. He has something to say in every album he produces maybe some of you are just not listening. He is a legend and he will always be in my heart. Thanks for voting for him!

He deserve to be in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame, and even because every DANZIG fan wants to see him in!!!

Glenn is the prince of darkness... and a legend

Posted by Rock'N Mind Trip on Monday, 11.10.08 @ 14:29pm


I flew from Atlanta to Baltimore to see Danzig Oct. 23, 2007 and would have met him on his bus after the show had he not taken the fall off stage...But, never mind my petty wishes. GLENN DANZIG took that fall off the stage and his awesome band, DANZIG, never missed a note! True professionals. And THE MAN? He hopped back up and that stage and finished not only that song, but the rest of his concert with a broken collar bone and never uttered a word about it. GLENN is beyond mortal.

Posted by Patricia White on Friday, 11.14.08 @ 04:43am


He inspired so many bands and plenty of them ripped off the Misfits style. His music is incredible and different from any other performer. He gapped the bridge from punk to metal, not a lot of artists can say or do that.

Posted by Nick Fortunato on Wednesday, 11.19.08 @ 12:09pm


Lol. Everyone of Danzig's albums are brilliant in their own way. But besides "Danzig" and that era of music, he has crossed many paths and many have followed his ways. He should have been inducted a long time ago.

Posted by EvilCain on Wednesday, 11.19.08 @ 21:41pm


Glenn Danzig is one of the greatest songwriters and vocalists in rock history. All three of his legendary bands deserve to be on the list, as they have influenced countless musicians. He has never had a bad album, but here's how I would rate Danzig's releases:

Danzig 1-4>Samhain>Danzig 5-8>Misfits

Not to takes anything away from the misfits, but Danzig only progressed as a singer/lyricist.

Posted by Derry on Thursday, 11.20.08 @ 10:37am


It would make more sense to induct Glenn Danzig as opposed to the band Danzig. since his music career is more than just Danzig.

Either way I bet he doesn't show up if he wins.

I would though. What's more Rock N Roll than hanging out with old people in Ohio? Nothing; I tell you nothing is!

Posted by Daisy on Thursday, 12.4.08 @ 14:11pm


Danzig sounds an awful lot like The Cult, in my opinion...which means The Cult would probably have to get in first. I like them a lot, but I don't see them getting in any time soon. So, Danzig fans...don't hold your breath.

Posted by Gitarzan on Sunday, 12.14.08 @ 08:23am


DANZIG IS AN AMAZING ARTIST THAT HAVE INFLUENCED A LOT OF AMERICAN BIG NAMES AS LIKE METALLICA FIRST OF ALL! AND WROTE SONGS FOR THE GREAT JOHNNY CASH AND ROY ORBISON AN AMERICAN LEGEND!

DANZIG DESERVS TO BE IN! dANZIG MUSIC IS INCREDIBLE AND SO ORIGINAL AND PARTICULARY...HE SOLD SO MANY ALBUM!

GO GLENN GO!

Posted by Danielle Danzig on Sunday, 01.11.09 @ 15:45pm


He's influenced both Punk, Goth, and Metal genres, and has had a band for each of those. Danzig is a huge influence still, and deserves to be inducted for sure.

Posted by Samhain_Mist on Monday, 02.9.09 @ 23:19pm


I've listened to Danzig since I was 9 years old. Theres nothing more I would like to see then his name in the hall of fame. I don't know if the misfits are there or not but it be shameful since Glenn did change the face of many genres during his reign.

Posted by Ruben on Tuesday, 02.10.09 @ 03:37am


It's time that an artists that refuses to 'sell out' gets some recognition. Especially someone who has influenced so many. Glenn has his left hand in blues, punk, AND metal. www.myspace.com/rooster1313

Danzig owns dude! He's been my idol for years. He does his own thing, combining talent with unique music, every album is different. His voice has haunted me since the first time I heard it.

Posted by Mydnight on Sunday, 04.19.09 @ 08:02am


It is a true pity that he never will get the consideration that he should. He has one of the best pure voices in all of rock, & he's taken a fairly steady theme (horror influences) and managed to find diff. variations that have been pretty unique.

You've just got to pin your hopes on the voting board changing in a couple, what, 2-3 yrs. or so (maybe). A more modern voting board could accurately place him & his influence w/in rock. He might get a fair shake then.

Posted by Cheesecrop on Sunday, 04.19.09 @ 08:13am


Danzig should very well be admitted to the Hall of Fame based on his being solely responsible for one of the most influential bands of all time: THE MISFITS. Their influence has transcended punk, and been a huge influence on the likes of Guns N Roses and Metallica. If that's not enough, Samhain (which was really the next phase of The Misfits anyway) also released what is considered by many to be legendary classic material.
All that is aside from his solo work, which itself is worthy of induction. I'm not going to say he doesn't have some weak material, but to say the first album was the only good one means you haven't been paying attention. Danzig 2 is arguably better, and 3 although not as classic as the first two is still a great album. Then he dabbled with different genres to mixed success, but at least he still makes music that he wants to make as opposed to the rest of these Hall of Fame artists that just get told what to make, or in some cases (ex: Aerosmith) don't even write their own songs. Danzig deserves recognition for his work... but he doesn't need to beg to get into the same room as most of these clowns. Run DMC? Give me a break. Danzig should just start his own Hall of Fame.

Posted by Him on Saturday, 05.9.09 @ 11:36am


Glenn Danzig's album skilled up until circle of snakes. He gave us the misfits, samhain and influenced millions of people. Hell, millions of people still sport his gear to this day. Kids growing up in this day and age kno who the misfits are. Danzig deserves this

HIS TALENT IS LEGENDARY.

Posted by Javier Dynamita on Monday, 06.8.09 @ 19:18pm


Glenn Danzig is one of the most talented and versatile artists of our time. Unlike most musicians who can only perform one "style" of music, Danzig has excelled at many- punk, metal, rock,blues. Not to mention his vocal range is incredible. He has written music for artists from Metallica to Johnny Cash and is responsible for creating the punk genre. If he is not hall of fame material than no one is. Hail Danzig >;)

Posted by DreaDevon on Monday, 06.22.09 @ 19:28pm


Glenn Danzig is a legend. He never sold out!!!!He has always been true to his music and fans. I loved Misfits, Samhain, and Danzig. His talent is amazing and ther will never be anyone close to him. The Sex Pistols got in and hell they were only together for a second. (I love them too)but Danzig has given so much more to music

He never "sold out"...hmmm???? Exactly what does that mean? I think it's just a ridiculous statement. Any artist that doesn't list making money as a priority is just plain full of it!! Maybe he remained "true" to what he did simply because talent-wise he was limited to that...makes ya wonder!

I love the Misfits and Samhain, but Danzig is by far my favorite, Glenn diserves to get in, Glenn Danzig is a brilliant artist!!! all hails!!!

Posted by Nick on Monday, 10.12.09 @ 10:04am


Glenn Danzig is a god...no man has influenced metal more, but I digress as I know Glenn doesn't give a shit about this stuff and even if put in he won't turn up..the only people that count to him are the people that listen to his music..as far as Glenn is concerned everyone else can go to..well you know

Posted by cazza on Sunday, 11.1.09 @ 13:42pm


Glenn Danzig is simply a music god. The Misfits, Samnhain, Danzig, and Black Aria. All were, and sre fantastic. Not only that, but he's written songs for artists like Johnny Cash, and Roy Orbison. His songs have been covered by Metallica, Behemoth, Guns N' Roses, Entombed, NOFX, AFI, and countless others. He began at the age of 21 and at age 54, he's STILL rocking hard. He deserves to be in the rock and roll hall of fame.

DANZIG DESERVES THE ROCK N ROLL HALL OF FAME! He's a great artist who influenced some of the greatest of Rock n Roll like METALLICA and wrote songs for the great JOHNNY CASH...With THE MISFITS, SAMHAIN and DANZIG he has wrote pages of Rock n Roll History. Founder of Misfits one of the greatest Punk/Rock bands, Samhain a great Underground progect (ASK JAMES HETFIELD) and DANZIG thousands copies seller!

Posted by Gianni on Sunday, 11.22.09 @ 07:57am


I don't know that many people who have even heard of him (that's REAL influence for you). I haven't exactly lived in a cave, I've heard him a little bit and think he's okay...but that's just OKAY...!!!

Lots of people wrote songs for Johnny Cash, by the way...

Posted by mrxyz on Monday, 11.23.09 @ 10:17am


Being "more rock & roll" than someone...especially Madonna...really isn't saying much. Which brings me to my next point, is there some sort of measuring system that declares an artist "more rock & roll" than another?

Just curious...

Posted by Gitarzan on Monday, 11.23.09 @ 17:08pm


And more rock & roll than U2? Have you been rockin' the ganja again?

Posted by Philip on Monday, 11.23.09 @ 17:50pm


Philip

Have you? Because U2 is the worst insult to anybody's ears. And just because Bono licked couple buttholes and they got in the Hall, does not make them 'more rock'n'roll'

Are you seriously gonna argue that Danzig/Misfits/Samhain are not worth idnuction?

Posted by Deepest Purple on Monday, 11.23.09 @ 18:30pm


I will...take a good, hard look at who the big "movers & shakers" have been over the years. I've been involved in this culture for a long time, and during that time Danzig's name very rarely came up. I'm not saying he's not a good artist, and if you and other folks are fans...great!!! Just don't make him into this great influential and innovative juggernaut...because he simply isn't...

Posted by Gitarzan on Monday, 11.23.09 @ 18:47pm


U2 is an awesome band, but aside from that, they've also been among the acts that have defined what rock'n'roll is for the past 30 years. I'm not saying Danzing et al don't belong, but to say U2 is not rock'n'roll is just absolutely absurd.

Posted by Philip on Monday, 11.23.09 @ 20:43pm


All this talk on Danzig got me interested in finding out some more information on him (remember, I'm still a young-in) and based on my findings, I'm very close to saying that The Misfits deserve induction. It's not a sure-thing yet only because I haven't spent too long a time researching them. I'm still a little uneasy on Danzig (the band) though.

However, it is silly to say that someone like U2 is any less rock and roll than someone else. U2 has been one of the biggest rock and roll acts of the last 30 years or so.

Posted by Steve Z on Monday, 11.23.09 @ 22:04pm


U2 is the worst rock act from last 30 years. Case closed.

It's odd that you say that considering that there has been that recent surge of Emo crap running rampant.

Posted by Steve Z on Monday, 11.23.09 @ 23:20pm


C'mon guyz, if one Artist like Glenn Danzig deserves the induction or not its not a case of how he is eard by somebody or if he is Rock and Roll more than someone else

DANZIG its a great artist that influenced many Huge band like Metallica and artist like James Hetfield and I want to say just one name of many others...wrote song for the Great Johnny Cash! Created THE MISFITS an incredible band for American punk music scene...than the underground band like Samhain another good project and now the DANZIG with so many masterpieces! C'mon take a look at the 2013 list of inductions and see why Danzig can get in! But by the way Glenn Danzig is an incredible musician...sorry for my bad Inglish!

Steve Z sound like Steve Zing!!! are you?

Posted by Gitarzan on Tuesday, 11.24.09 @ 20:43pm


*gets the bucket ready for Gitarzan*


Seriously... how are they not rock? Even if you don't like them... "Two Hearts Beat As One", "I Will Follow," "Desire," "Even Better Than The Real Thing," "Elevation," "Vertigo," "Love And Peace Or Else", "Wire," "In God's Country," "Out Of Control," "Electric Co.".... how can say they are not real rock? They've done some songs with softer or synth edges to them, but the songs I listed... all solid examples of rock music.

And mrxyz, you who value innovators so highly... how are they not innovative? Whose sound did the Edge steal? I know of no one before him whose sound was exactly like his. There are influences that you can hear, but that doesn't mean he wasn't innovative.

Again, please try to answer from beyond your personal disdain for the group U2. Answer more objectively. If you can.

Posted by Philip on Tuesday, 11.24.09 @ 21:10pm


U2, not rock and roll? Seriously, this is coming from the same guy who votes for Milli Vanilli for heaven's sake.

As for Danzig, I've just never been a fan. I'm fully aware though that the Misfits were one of the more influencial hardcore punk bands, but there are still more deserving hardcore punk bands who haven't been inducted. I think that most of us are in agreement that his solo material had no innovation and minimal influence.

Posted by Dude Man on Tuesday, 11.24.09 @ 21:25pm


Philip...I don't think U2 was influenced by the Surfaris. Strikes 1,2, and 3...

Just because you play something in 4/4 time with a few rock riffs don't make it rock in my book I don't think country is rock but they use the same musical roots... I think of the as a musical ACT....When I think of rock they just don't come in mine..

Posted by mrxyz on Tuesday, 11.24.09 @ 23:20pm


A few rock riffs? Seriously, with all the songs I rattled off all you tell me is "a few rock riffs"? A few rock riffs is what NKOTB did on a couple of their songs like "Cover Girl" (and really weak rock riffs at that). U2 has done it consistently over the course of their career (well, maybe Zooropa and Pop strayed just a little bit), but love them or hate them, any sane person will recognize them as rock. Even Iron Maid In/Deepest Purple at least called them rock when saying they were the worst rock act of the last 30 years.

he is real rock in my book.. but that is just me. lot of folks think Madonna is rock.. I hope that is not what rock has become.... I guess it is though.. To Bad... I would rather hear Buck Owens over U2 any day and I am not a gig lover of country... but to me it is more "ROCK" than U2

U2 has become more hype than substance. Many longtime fans were severely disappointed by No Line On The Horizon[/i], but even "Stand Up Comedy" I would call a rock song. But even before they became household names, you'd still say they were more hype? Seriously? You need to take a serious second listen to [u]Boy, which is grounded heavily in punk influence; October, which has some gospel influence; and War, which clearly shows influences of Lennon-esque protest music (like Power To The People and Instant Karma), punk, and even another hint of gospel (listen to "40"). Are those not pieces of rock'n'roll? U2 took all those things and brought it together while mixing it with their own flavors. Again, I don't see how you can say the Edge is not an innovative guitarist.

Those who call Madonna "rock'n'roll" are almost always referring more to her image of sex and rebellion, NOT her music. We're talking U2's music. Sure, they're hyped, and yes today they're more sizzle than steak, but you cannot reasonably say they were never rock'n'roll. I like Buck Owens, but he was not rock, and certainly not more rock than U2.

Dude Man was right... I wouldn't question other people's sanity while you're exhalting Milli Vanilli.

Posted by Philip on Wednesday, 11.25.09 @ 17:47pm


I just listened to "Bullet The Blue Sky" a little bit ago. Not rock, huh....alrighty then....

Posted by mrxyz on Wednesday, 11.25.09 @ 20:04pm


Streisand does rock? What has Barbra done that could even be construed as rock'n'roll?

No, I know you weren't saying Buck was rock, but you said he was closer to "real rock" than U2. What does Buck Owens have that is a component of real rock that U2 does not? I think that's a fair question right there.

But Streisand does rock? You either to stop doing drugs, or start.

Brabra Woman in Love .. Comes to mind. as one of her better rock pop tunes..
Buck /country Ask the Eagles Byrds .. Or the Beatles "Act Naturally" Heck Ringo re recorded it with buck...Johnny rivers Under your spell..
Then there is Korn much ofd their ealy stuff casme out of bucks studio with good old" Mad Man Max " . Pettys old early enginer and producer..The "Bakersfield Sound"


Dazig to me is real rock even though he kinda sounds like Jim Morrison .. I still like his stuff..

Posted by mrxyz on Wednesday, 11.25.09 @ 21:23pm


Having a rock producer produce your country stuff doesn't make your stuff more rock than a band that actually plays rock and roll. Besides which, Brian Eno helped produce a lot of the U2, so there's that. Plus, they've duetted with Hall Of Famer Johnny Cash. And they're recognized as one of the godfathers of the indie rock scene. They and R.E.M. are the progenitors of the indie scene as we know it now. Lot of knockoff rock groups try to sound like them, be it imitating Bono's voice or the Edge's style.

You and Philip like U2 and many do ..I just don't see them as rockers in the traditioal sense.. I see them as a political music act..that do some rock or rock type of music..

I'm not a big U2 fan, but I'm certainly not going to say they're not a good, solid ROCK band. The Edge is the type of guitarist who gets a lot out of very little notes or chords, which to me is sometimes harder than playing a bunch of notes at MACH 10...

Hi Gitarzan, no problem I respect your opinion, you know, tribute bands are just a way to practice and have fun with music and to make a tribute to many great artists that deserves tribute like DANZIG, 'cause theres so many Metallica and Iron maiden tribute you know?! Just to do a different project and 'cuse I love Danzig!

By the way, I'm unbiased I try everytime to be onest in my opinion...Danzig Deserves the Hall

Aw rats. I still say I'm half right.

But seriously to call U2 a political music act first and foremost really misses the point. That's a pretty narrow vista. Yes, there was "Sunday Bloody Sunday", "Pride (In The Name Of Love)", "Bullet The Blue Sky", "Silver And Gold", but there were also "Two Hearts Beat As One," "Wire," "A Sort Of Homecoming," "Where The Streets Have No Name," "In God's Country," "Desire," "Hawkmoon 269," "Even Better Than The Real Thing", "The Fly", "Elevation", "Beautiful Day", etc. Their music has always been more spiritual than political. They're not a "political act first" because they use their fame to try and actually better this gray and granite planet before it falls apart. Why must you reside in a town without pity, mrxyz? (Sorry, being a little silly now.)

But Git... Yoko CAN sing. She's not a great singer, but when she actually sticks to Western conventions of music, and not making songs that are like "Revolution #9" in that they're more "audio art" rather than "music", she's got some REALLY great stuff out there.

PS that is why I like Danzig LOL

Posted by mrxyz on Thursday, 11.26.09 @ 20:33pm


Dude... can I buy pot from you?

Second, read the book, Walk On: The Spiritual Journey Of U2. Spirituality is a theme that runs rampant throughout their music: the entire October album, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", "The Wanderer" (which features Johnny Cash), "Wake Up Dead Man", "When I Look At The World", "Grace". They've infused spirituality into lyrics of everyone of their albums, several times.

I'm sorry that your vision of U2 is so far detached from reality. Their ethos is a practical one. Yes, they do use a lot of HYPE, but seriously, how else can you mobilize a mass movement to actually do something worthwhile in the world, like get rid of AIDS, end poverty, etc.? Why do you want there to be AIDS in the world? Are you so homophobic that you want AIDS to remain to remind us that it's a punishment for what we've wrought? Do you keep warm at night knowing there are poor people out in the streets? They are surrounded by Hollywood Hype, but there is real substance. They are not the gas giant Jupiter of hype with no core of anything substantial. They are rock at their center.

Second, read the book, Walk On: The Spiritual Journey Of U2. Spirituality is a theme that runs rampant throughout their music: the entire October album, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", "The Wanderer" (which features Johnny Cash), "Wake Up Dead Man", "When I Look At The World", "Grace". They've infused spirituality into lyrics of everyone of their albums, several times.

You are so full of it, it's unbelievable. Yes, they've kept part of their wealth, but they also do give a substantial part of it away. Check your facts.

And I was a believer before I ever even heard of U2. Faith without actions is meaningless.

Philip...A couple of things...it's true that you can't leave Jesus out. As far as Yoko goes, "Revolution #9" did it for me, plus I find her disturbing to look at (LOL).

Now (as if I'm not bringing up the obvious), we all know that if mrxyz doesn't like an artist he'll do anything or talk any kind of nonsense necessary to discredit them...things like 'U2 isn't rock", which is as ridiculous as "Stevie Ray isn't the blues". Now, if he likes someone, then they're hands-down, sure fire, first ballot shoo-ins (if you look real hard, the Surfaris got in on that same "special induction" that the members of Genesis (except for Phil Collins) will "most assuredly" be inducted). He claims to be so "tuned in", but sounds more like a Madonna or NKOTB fan every time he comments...

I was kidding about Yoko,, but not about u2 or SRV is a rock player trying to play the blues..... U2 is just a political musical act that plays rock type stuff....

They care if they get paid and as of right now they care

Posted by mrxyz on Friday, 11.27.09 @ 12:55pm


I'm sorry, but their albums Boy and October came out before the any hint of political activism came about. For that reason alone, I cannot call them a "political musical act" first and foremost. It's not where their roots are, it's not where they're from, it's not at the core of their identity. Yes, they have gotten caught up in the hype machine as of late, but you have to give them credit for being able to manipulate it as well as they have in the past to effectively bring about awareness and change.

As for being political in your music, though, what's wrong with that? Music touches the soul, and the soul is what you have to reach if you're going to effectively bring about change for the better.

Yes, they're rich as all get out, and yes they care if they get paid. Don't you want to get paid at your job too? Even in Levitican law, the priests had a right to earn wages for being the emissaries of the Father. But the fact is, they still use a good portion of their earnings for charities and to benefit others. Can you say the same about your pay? Can I? Can he, can she, can we, can they?

Posted by Philip on Friday, 11.27.09 @ 16:18pm


Philip...considering my wages, let's just say that "charity begins at home..." Another way to put it (to the tune of "Hi-Ho");

"I owe, I owe, so off to work I go..."

Posted by Gitarzan on Friday, 11.27.09 @ 16:46pm


No, Git, and I don't begrudge you that at all. My point is, for all of us, even U2, it's our money to do with as we wish, and however much they spend on their lifestyles, they probably give more away to NPO's than all of us regulars on this site... combined.

Music has always been used to move the masses from Military Marching Band to Gospel choirs

The different is you know that it is gospel or Military...... Nothing wrong with it.. my point is they are more a political ACT than a rock band.. They use rock type music to sell their ideology .... That is why I like Danzig not much politics just rock and roll... I don't need "pied pipers" to move me.. I try to think for myself... A little is ok but too much is to much kinda takes the rock out of roll....I am not into singing priest dressed in rock outfits LOL

Dude, are you stoned? No, I was not saying U2 are priests. But of all the professions out there, which one has historically been considered to be least about the money? My point was even people in that profession have a right to be paid. How much more so musical artists! No pun intended, but holy shit, you have a way of drawing the wrong conclusions. All I said was 1) their music has been more spiritual than political, which IS verifiable... seriously, listen to the album October, which was basically a Christian rock album. 2) they try to use their celebrity clout for effecting positive change... would you rather they be selfish pricks who stand for nothing but themselves? 3) they've probably done more for the planet than those of us on this forum combined, which is respectable, but hardly makes them priests, and 4) and most importantly, their music IS rock'n'roll. It has all the basic elements of it, and thensome. Their new stuff is more hype, but still has some rock to it.

Get over yourself before you even try to condescend to me.

Git, I think I've figured it out... he thinks a band's lyrics or stage antics or press coverage is more defining of an artist than the actual MUSIC they play.... in short, he's on par with the Coven fans.

Also, he hates U2 because they never did surf.

I think it can" posion the well"..I guess they believe in what they do.. I am just not a believer in people making lots of money on saving the world....no matter what side of the fence you sit on... To me rock is to free you from our dally worries ... But that's just me...LOL I like Cohen ,Baez ,Peter Paul and Mary Kingston trio, Donavon...etc ..

I agree U2 an Madonna are spiritual leaders an the essence of rock.. Why it is almost foolish an blasphemy to compare the price of a ticket of Little Richard or even Chuck Berry to these true Rock leaders. Even the UN recognize the great contributions these musicians have given the world. The world is a much better and safer place ,now that these ROCK GODS and GODDESS have come to our unholy planet. We are truly witnessing miraculous, musicals miracles before our own eyes and ears .This has not happen since ancient times . Madonna is holy a gift from above.{Rebirth of Madonna} I also absolutely believe U2 hold a similar place. We have a chance to save this wicked planet.. !

Streisand and Buck are as much as rock as U2 to him because they associated with big names that were also respected in the rock world. I named several solid, prime examples of U2 songs that are rock. He names one Streisand tune... which does not a pattern form. The man's a whacko. Yeah, I should know better by now. Danzig isn't "more rock" than U2, he's just heavier rock than U2... I think we can agree on that at least.

Just because an artist has influece doesn't mean I'd want to sit and listen to them. I will acknowledge the old blues players' influence, but outside of maybe Howlin' Wolf I can't sat I could sit and listen to any of them for an extended period of time.

I agree older is not always better.. Having said that louder ,gizmos lots of notes is not always better There are many newer musician that are great... when it comes to blues most of them have lost the feel Big Brother had good feel for "new blues".. Blues is feel ,not being loud ,over playing for that type of music.. Rock is where that type of stuff should be...It is kinda like messing with Mozart...It is what it is.. If it works it ain't broken.. That is why I say SRV is a rocker trying to do the blues.. I find little value in U2 other than selling a political message to the working class hero /masses ... and making a nice profit$$.. Kinda like some of our religious acts or politians ... Give me Mose Alison Muddy Waters ,Waits, Dr John,Cohen. Dylan,Baez, Donavon,Little Richard, Dion, Blink 182, Wilco, Pearl Jam any day Danzig is "real rock' .. I am not a big fan of him but..... all "ya need is ears"..Enjoy the show..

Posted by mrxyz on Sunday, 11.29.09 @ 15:04pm


Honestly, I'd pick all of them... Danzig's not my thing necessarily, but I love the rest of them and would love to see any of them perform live.

As far as U2 selling a message though... it's always been the music first with them really. Other than "Silver And Gold" and maybe "Hands That Built America" (NOT one of my favorite U2 songs, btw), they really haven't written a specific song for a command performance type of deal... even for Batman Forever, they were pretty much at their disposal to create whatever and gave us "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me", which is another one of my all time faves by them. Listen to the angry guitars on that one. But eh... I still say rock band first.

U2 is an awesome band, but aside from that, they've also been among the acts that have defined what rock'n'roll is for the past 30 years. I'm not saying Danzing et al don't belong, but to say U2 is not rock'n'roll is just absolutely absurd.

The guy that said Glenn will have to pin his hopes on the Fits to get in is a moron. Learn about real music why don't ya! Put Danzig in or Hell shall rain down upon you. This guy invinted Horror Punk and Goth Punk and Blues Metal and Goth Metal and he is the very difinition of Bad Assedness!

First Misfits release was 1977 and Glenn Danzig & the Power and Fury release was in 1987. Isn't Glenn Danzig eligible for induction into the class of 2012?

The Wikipedia link listed above is not for Glenn Danzig the legendary progenitor of the horror punk rock genre; additionally, the years listed above are also incorrect. Glenn Danzig is eligible for nomination in 2011 for the 2012 induction ceremony.

According to the rockhall.com eligibility criteria, "To be eligible for induction as an artist (as a performer, composer, or musician) into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the artist must have released a record, in the generally accepted sense of that phrase, at least 25 years prior to the year of induction; and have demonstrated unquestionable musical excellence."

As primary member, vocalist, and sole songwriter of the bands Misfits (first single released in 1977; disbanded in 1983), Samhain (1983 - 1986), Glenn Danzig & the Power and Fury Orchestra (1987), and Danzig (1988 - present), as well as composer of the Black Aria dark classical music series (the first of which debuted at number 1 on the Billboard classical music chart), Glenn Danzig has demonstrated his versatility as an artist and remained a steadfast embodiment of musical excellence; his Work exemplifies the universal scope of music.

Since the first Misfits recording was released in 1977 and the first Glenn Danzig & the Power and Fury Orchestra recording was released in 1987, no matter how you slice it, Glenn Danzig is eligible for nomination and induction into the 2012 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
