Throughout Glenn Danzig’s reign of darkness and doom over all things heavy and hard, he’s always been looked at as a pissed-off 16-year-old’s conception of what a Real Man From Hell ought to be, and that’s with good reason—duke does NOT fuck with shirts, even when he’s showing off his book collection, which includes a special edition of the bible where Jesus kills a kid. But I prefer Glenn’s softer, more sensitive side, the side that writes songs like “Sistinas” and “Life Fades Away” (for Roy Orbison) plus that other song from the Less than Zero soundtrack, and the first half of a handful of Danzig songs where he pretends they’re gonna be regular prom songs but then the guitars really kick in and they become prom songs from hell. Anyways, ol’ Glenn tacked on a real Adult Contemporary-ass cover of “Crying in the Rain” to the end of the Skeletons cover album last year, and he keeps threatening to do an entire Danzig Sings Elvis project, which I for one cannot wait for.
Anyways, listen to him sing “Always On My Mind,” which is the first hypothetical song from Danzig Sings Elvis. If this shit actually ever comes out it’ll be both mine and my dad’s favorite album of [insert year here, broh].
