The Misfits - Night Of The Living Dead


On this date in 1980, The Misfits released their fifth record, a three song 7-inch record called Night Of The Living Dead. Aside from the title track, the record also included "Where Eagles Dare" and "Rat Fink". The single was actually first released on Halloween, 1979...sort of. It was first sold at the door of their concert at Irving Plaza that night. None of the tracks appeared on an album, the first of which was not released until 1982. The Lodi, NJ horror punk band disbanded in 1983 after the departure of lead singer and founder Glenn Danzig. They re-formed in 1995 without Danzig.
