This entry is part 5 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 II: Lucifuge, 1990)

Danzig’s debut album had already perked my interested in the band, but it wasn’t until Danzig II: Lucifuge that I was a true Danzig fan, and later a “fiend.” From Danzig’s channeling of Jim Morrison to the bluesy metal riffs, Lucifuge has a unique and nostalgic sound from start to finish. “Devil’s Plaything” is one of the only Danzig songs I can see the ladies getting into. I know it’s weird for me to say this, but it’s a song tailored made for strip clubs and it’s sexy in it’s own way.
