3. He Was in the Best Episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force Ever

We still can't believe he did this. But in what was ultimately the greatest episode of Aqua Teen Hungerforce ever, Danzig bought Carl's house, ran blood through the sprinklers on his front lawn, and got pissy when his robot ran across the street to get away from him. It was dry and hilarious and awesome. And yes, it really was him providing the voice. It's also proof that, under the right circumstances, Mr. Danzig can and will laugh at himself. It's rare alright, but it does happen!

4. Duh! The Misfits!

Do you have any idea how crazy, weird and exciting The Misfts were back in the day? I mean, think about it. Can you imagine stumbling across these guys for the first time? "Oh look at these ass-hats in their make-up, flexing their muscles... But wait! This is totally punk rock and exciting! With, like, evil Elvis on vocals! I have no idea what to do with myself! Circle pit anyone?" Find us someone who doesn't like The Misfits and we'll point at a liar. Let us never forget how amazing this band was when Danzig was behind the microphone.

5. The Best Giants Logo EVER


We know that technically this thing was created long, long after Danzig was out of the band, but still... every time we wear it, we think of a wonderful combination of relief pitcher weirdo Brian Wilson and Glenn Danzig. We like to think that, one day, those two will get together, do lunch, and have long discussions about philosophy and being misunderstood by the world...

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
