DanzigFormer Misfits lead vocalist and founding member of the band Glenn Danzig has filed a lawsuit against his former band mate Jerry Only over alleged unpaid royalties. The pair agreed a merchandising deal back in 1993 which resulted in Only gaining the right to record and tour using the Misfits name. Danzig alleges new trademarks were negotiated and deals with retailers like Hot Topic were signed without him being aware or consenting.

This obviously puts a wrench in any possible reunion plans and begins a new chapter in the punk rock soap opera that is The Misfits.
