The 1985 album "Legacy of Brutality" would basically not exist...NINE of those songs were Static Age material that were poorly remixed for "Legacy" Now that Static Age is out, I'm surprised that "Legacy" is even still in print.
Collection I featured a few more Static Age songs such as "Hollywood Babylon" "Bullet" and another duplicate of "She" These are suffer from an inferior remix, thou not as bad as "Legacy"
Collection II contains "We Are 138" "Attitude" "Last Caress" and "Return of the Fly" which all sound almost identical to the Static Age versions except the noticeable reverb on "Last Caress"
Using these three compilations you can actually piece together "Static Age" and it would be virtually complete except for "Teenagers from Mars" (The version on Collection 1 is taken from the Horror Business 7" and not Static Age sessions)
Now that Static Age is readily available, I question the necessity of those older CDs. [Although Collection 1 remains a popular "Best of" compilation with many people]
A Compilation CD of all their 7" singles would be the perfect way to complement The Misfits three studio albums "Static Age" "Walk Among Us" and "Earth AD" Until then, you are going to be buying all these other compilation CDs and ending up with a lot of repeat songs.
Bottom Line: Buy Static Age. Avoid Legacy of Brutality.
Static Age has what I believe to be one of the best songs of the punk rock scene in the 70's: Last Caress. Being a keyboardist and drummer, I learned chord progressions for blues, jazz, and rock standards. For years, it seemed like most rock bands kept going back to these same progressions. The Misfits, however, have invented and perfectly executed some of the most melodic and unique chord progressions in rock music. Lead singer Danzig also sings with a fiery ferocity of passion, only screaming to emphasize. Screaming is what makes up 99% of today's punk music, but Danzig knew when to hit his anarchistic high notes, and when to hit his ghoulishly haunting low notes. The rhythm section (guitar, bass, drums) does a phenomenal job on this album. There speed, accuracy, and synchronicity is perfect with Danzig's vocals.
I have nothing against today's punk rockers who call themselves punks and listen to Blink 182 and Avril Lavigne. Music is entertainment, and to get into the fine points of what it should and shouldn't be ain't right. But if you say you like punk, I suggest you study its roots and buy Static Age.
This album matches the rage of any album that ever followed it by anyone. It is a good kick in the teeth and it never lets up...but what makes it even better is that it is CATCHY. Even my little sisters who hate punk can never get the 'fits out of their heads after I listen to them.
Although it might now be the best guitar playing, the sheer agression of it sure made me pick up a guitar! This album can stand up to any punk classic and hold its own. An ESSENTIAL to any punk or hard rock fan's collection.

This is a great album from start to finish. Starts off with one of the strongest tracks (though they're all good) and consistently keeps you hooked with a well ordered song list. Read morePublished 13 days ago by J. Atkins
Probably one of the best Misfits albums of all time. I grew up on Legacy of Brutality, Walk Among Us and Earth A.D. which are staples in the Misfits diet of classic horror punk. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Chattin
