This entry is part 3 of 11 in the series The Top 10 Danzig songs

Here are my Top 10 Danzig songs of the now-classic original lineup of Danzig (vocals), John Christ (guitars), Eerie Von (bass) and Chuck Biscuits (drums). This lineup was active years 1987-1994 and released the most iconic and revered albums among fans with Danzig (1988), Danzig II: Lucifuge (1990), Danzig III: How the Gods Kill (1992) and Danzig 4 (1994).

(Danzig, 1988)

Most casual fans would probably have guessed “Mother” as the No. 1 Danzig song in this list. Well, I’m no casual fan. Don’t get me wrong, the song is fantastic and is still the band’s most well known song, but there’s a couple a like even more. This was, however, the first song I ever heard from Danzig on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball way back in 1988. My initial feelings were mixed, as it was like nothing I had ever heard. I was even more shocked when the song became a smash in 1993 when a live version appeared on Thrall/Demonsweatlive and another music video was made.
