Aus Misfits und 25 anderen Veröffentlichungen

„Horror Business“ is the third single released by the horror punk band the Misfits. It was released on June 26, 1979 on singer Glenn Danzig’s label Plan 9 Records.

The single’s cover features a skeletal figure inspired by a poster for the 1946 film serial The Crimson Ghost. The figure became a mascot for the band, and its skull image would serve as the Misfits’ logo for the rest of their career.

Background

The tracks for „Horror Business“ were recorded in January and February 1979 at C.I. Recordings in New York City. They were originally going to be released as a five-track EP, but only one acetate copy was made. The band could not afford to release the EP, so they released three of the tracks as a single instead. The remaining two tracks, „Who Killed Marilyn?“ and „Where Eagles Dare“, were released on the compilation album Legacy of Brutality in 1985 with overdubbed guitar and bass tracks by Danzig. The original versions of all five tracks were released in 1996 in The Misfits box set.

Pressing information

The first pressing of „Horror Business“ consisted of 25 promotional copies on black 7“ vinyl and 5,000 copies on yellow vinyl for sale. Some of these copies contained and insert with a story claiming that the band had recorded the single in a haunted house, resulting in strange unexplainable noises and voices in the background. However, this story was false.
