It’s safe to say that Glenn Danzig wasn’t made for nu-metal. Though the king of horror-punk did his damnedest to tap into the new market with 1999’s Danzig 6:66 Satan’s Child, the album didn’t really land the way Glenn might have wanted it to. But now, one YouTuber has shown that perhaps Limp Bizkit could’ve used a dose of the Danz, as indicated by this cover of the nu-metal classic “Break Stuff” in the style of Danzig’s horror-punk act The Misfits.
The main thing one might notice about Limp Misfit’s “All Hell Breaks Stuff” is that its creator did not sort of make it Misfits-oriented, he went all-in. This is a full-on horror-punk track, which never tries to ape Wes Borland’s chugging guitar tone. That said, there’s still a pretty solid breakdown when it gets to the bridge (you know, chainsaw-ass-raw, all of that). Overall, when it comes to cover-one-band-in-the-style-of-another, this track is about as good as it gets.

This year will see Danzig release his second feature film, the vampire spaghetti western Death Rider in the House of Vampires, which looks to be as insane as his debut Verotika. When an interviewer brought up Death Rider in conversation with star Devon Sawa, the Idle Hands and Fanatic star responded, “Holy shit, you’re the first person I’ve had to answer about this. I haven’t done anything since I worked on it, but I gotta see the film.
“Listen, Eli Roth came on and he kind of talked me off the ledge a couple times because it’s like doing a movie for the biggest punk rocker in the history of punk rock. He’s Glenn Danzig, and things aren’t normal sometimes in I guess a good way? They were unconventional, that’s for sure. But look, we’ll see, everyone had a great time, it was just very unconventional.”
