Just Because

Just because I think it is one of the coolest live recordings ever.

This record is incredible. I've heard a couple Misfits bootlegs and seen a vidio or two, but this one is the single only instance where the band comes off as a coherent entity, both musically and attitude wise. There's not one point during the record where I'm not expecting most any band member to jump into the audience to smack some fucker. The "one more fuckin' time you asshole and you DIE" bit is a classic in a classic.

It's goddamn unfathomable that this band has found an audience among pseudo-disaffected "emo" children, considering their consistently violent and antisocial meanstreak of a career. How could some pink/black vertical stripe opera gloves wearing fourteen-yearold girl find anything to cling to in Earth AD? Makes no fuckin' sense.

As for "just because," half this record was recorded 27 years ago TODAY. Helluva coincidence, no?

You are CORRECT, sir. One of the best live albums ever. Check out the bootlegs Black Christmas and Live'79 the Perfect Crime for more.

I always wondered who that dude was that is inches from Danzig's face on the cover. Look how skinny Jerry is!

If you get a better rip, I think a repost is in order.

Yup, pure awesome. I had a repress, with the band in coffins cover, that I had signed by Jerry and Glenn(on separate occasions), but it's been long stolen. 's alright, though, I'm not huge on autographs. The "Nothing to Loose" bootleg was good. It had a bunch of rarities and live tracks, most of which have been re-released. It's got the "Bobby Steele is an asshole" version of "Teenagers from Mars." I've only got it on tape, otherwise I'd share.
