Editors’ Notes

Although it was their eighth release, Walk Among Us was The Misfits’ first full-length album. Released on the Slash subsidiary Ruby, the record was right at home next to the gothic Americana of The Flesheaters’ A Minute To Pray, A Second To Die, and the Gun Club’s Fire of Love. Though the majority of these tracks were recorded during a 1981 session in New Jersey, Glenn Danzig remixed them in early 1982 in Los Angeles, adding additional guitar and vocals to some of the tracks. Transformative remixes have been a hallmark of Danzig’s career (for proof, look to the posthumous Misfits collection Legacy of Brutality), but Walk Among Us was a case when the music unequivocally benefitted from his refinishing. The album boasts definitive versions of several Misfits tracks, including “Hatebreeders,” “Skulls,” and “Braineaters.” The band’s obsession with Fifties horror and sci-fi reached its peak here, with “Vampira,” “Night of the Living Dead,” and “Astro Zombies.” Delivering cartoonish pop culture references with a devilish edge proved to be a killer combination for The Misfits, but lest their hardcore peers take them for some sort of joke, Danzig also places a neck-snapping live rendition of “Mommy Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight” here.

Customer Reviews

Amazing Album from the Misfits in 81

When I saw that they finally got Walk Among Us on Itunes I rushed to give it a good rating because it is extremely worthwhile. This album is the blueprint, and what every horror punk group should aspire to be like. Though I for one dislike a very few number of the songs the album is overall both greatly influential on the punk scene and has way WAY more good than bad. If you for some reason don't feel like buying the entire album (which I don't see why you shouldn't) make sure to at least buy Astro Zombies and Skulls. So yeah this album really rocks hard and is a very good contender to Static Age (which happens to be my favorite Misfits album right now) I really wish Danzig would bring Jerry to his senses and they could make a good old Misfits album again.


Probaly, my favorite hardcore punk album of all-time. Some of you complain of it being clean, I'm still hearing a variant of a certain four-letter word in Astro Zombies.


The Misfits are my favorite band of all time, and this is their best album. An absolute classic, beginning to end. The best song is Astro Zombies, in my opinion, but they're all terrific.

Genuinely shocking or tasteless, campy fun? It was sometimes hard to tell which way the Misfits wanted to be taken, and the immense cult following that has grown up in the years after their actual existence (1977-1983) seems divided in its own assessment. It certainly wasn't the Misfits' musicianship — which was as crude as the recording quality of most of their oeuvre — that endeared them to so many, although Glenn Danzig possessed one of the most distinctive and tuneful bellows in hardcore...
