My Heroes Have Always Been Monsters Part 3

One of the most iconic images in rock is the Misfits skull, which is based on that weirdo up there, The Crimson Ghost. This was a great serial from 1946. The first thing that captured my attention was the cassette cover of The Misfits Collection, with the neon ylleowish/green close up of CG, flipped it over and checked out the song titles-Horror Business, I Turned Into A Martian, Ghouls' Night Out, Die Die My Darling, etc-and I was sold I had to hear this band. It was only years later that I found out about the film serial. Ham-fisted and creepy at the same time!

Keep watching the sky, nerds!
