6. The Misfits celebrate 40th Anniversary with new logo and merch collab with Obey Giant.
As a newly honorary member of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, the Misfits are celebrating their 40th anniversary with a brand new logo that you can see below, as well as a new fashion line collaboration!
You can also read an extensive interview that the punk legends conducted with the Rock Hall where they comment on the anniversary and a whole lot more here.
The Misfits first live performance took place on April 18, 1977 at CBGB in NYC, and to celebrate they've teamed up with Shepard Fairey of Obey Giant to design special limited edition t-shirts. You can view and purchase these items here.
Bassist and founding member Jerry Only commented on the Misfits milestone and legacy:
A famous quote once foretold, “Nothing is stronger than an idea whose time has come”. That statement sums up this situation at its core. The Misfits were so far ahead of their time when we began back in 1977, that it took the world 40 years to catch up. Survival is the challenge…some creations wither and die, destined for extinction, while others endure the test of time. There are rare exceptions when something takes root and grows slowly, beneath the surface, until it eventually takes over. That time has come, and that time is NOW…
I'd like to thank all the FIENDS for 40 years and four generations of horror business. There's more to come…
— Jerry Only, 2017 A.D.
