Danzig, ‘Devil’s Angels': Rocker Gives ’60s Biker Tune a Misfits Makeover
While any tune crooned in Danzig’s signature lounge-demon style is bound to sound distinctive, he’s pulled off an especially radical remake with “Devil’s Angels,” the first single from the new album. (Listen below.)
The theme song to a 1967 biker film of the same name, the original is a prime example of guitar great Davie Allan‘s trashy, fuzzy, poppy style. Danzig adds defiant lyrics and Misfits guitars, changing the soundtrack tune into an anthemic ’70s-punk cut.
Elsewhere on the covers collection, Danzig will tackle songs by Black Sabbath, the Rascals and Elvis, as well as one of the vintage garage-rock classics featured on the popular Nuggets compilations, Blabbermouth.net reports.
