As scary metal front men go, it's hard to top Glenn Danzig
. The man founded The Misfits
, AKA the scariest, hookiest band in the punk era. In the process, he came up with the Misfits Skull, which has become a commonplace emblem of creepy menace — probably more so even than the music of The Misfits — on the hoodies and T-shirts of millions of kids. He pioneered the punk-rock pompadour (sort of like a greasy pony tail in the front), which, along with blacked-out eye make-up and a regular leather ensemble, helped advanced horror schlock style farther than anything since Alice Cooper popped out of a coffin. Sure, later, when he started up the Danzig, he may've dabbled a little too much in fishnet shirts, but for almost 35 years he's been kicking out reliably dark, cartoonishly gory punk, hardcore and metal anthems.
