NARDWUAR, September 1999 ***** Nardwuar the Human Serviette vs. Glenn Danzig (Part One) Nardwuar: Who are you? Glenn Danzig: Um, just Glenn Danzig. Nardwuar: Who else is in Danzig right now, Glenn? Glenn Danzig: Um, myself, Joey Castillo on drums, Josh Lazie on bass, and uh we have a new guitar player, Todd Youth on guitar. Nardwuar: Was Todd Youth in Warzone? Glenn Danzig: He might have been. I know he was in Murphy's Law. He was in D-Gen for a little while. And then he had a fine band called Crown Locusts. Nardwuar: You're also taking Samhain on tour. Who's in Samhain? Glenn Danzig: Um, right now in Samhain is myself , Stephen, and London. Nardwuar: And does it bug you when people pronounce it "Samhain" instead of, like, "Sow-en" - there's a proper way to pronounce it, isn't there? Does that bug you? Glenn Danzig: Yeah, it's actually, there are a few pronunciations. The pronunciation I use on the records is "Sauden" - um, it doesn't bug me because it is a Celtic word and you really can't expect most Americans who can only barely speak English to learn how to pronounce anything Celtic or anything else, so it doesn't bug me. Nardwuar: Is it true that, Glenn, that Steve Zing - he's back in Samhain, right? Glenn Danzig: Steve is just, um, like Samhain is not reunited, we're just doing this like five week's of shows and that's it. It's kind of just to celebrate the box set finally coming out, the Samhain box set finally coming out. Nardwuar: He was originally in Samhain though a while back though wasn't he ? Glenn Danzig: (pause) Yeah, he was one of the original members of Samhain, yeah. He's not in Danzig. Nardwuar: Right. When he was kicked out of Samhain, was that because he quote "liked Madonna, and didn't know that "scarlet billows" meant blood in the song "Mack the Knife'"? Glenn Danzig: (laughs) No, um, Steve, it was kind of a mutual thing when Steve left. He wanted to do something else and um we kind of wanted another drummer. Nardwuar: Lyle Presler of Minor Threat was like in Samhain for one gig, so the legend goes. Was he kicked out due to "inadequate body parts." Like, didn't you once say, "Ever see the arms on that guy?" Glenn Danzig: No, I never said that. What I said was, he knew what Samhain was about from the get-go, and he just you know, we all showed up and here we are all pretty i guess, for lack of a better term, you know, kind of dark, gothic, you know what I mean? And he was in like Dockers and other stuff. It was, you know, like a sweater tied around his neck, kind of like Haircut 100 or something and it wasn't going to work. Nardwuar: Glenn, did you originally base your look on the "Captain Harlock" cartoon from Japan? Glenn Danzig: Uh, no. Nardwuar: Are you a fan of that one? Because it is totally neat, "Captain Harlock" cartoon! I've seen pictures of that. Glenn Danzig: Yeah, no, I love the manga. And I've actually made a "Captain Harlock" shirt and wore it on the cover of "Walk Among Us". No, it didn't influence my look at all because he has a totally different you know thing. Nardwuar: Now, speaking of Japan, is there going to be a Danzig figurine coming out soon? Glenn Danzig: No. (laughs, coughs) Nardwuar: In the movie The Prophecy II you play an angel. Glenn Danzig: Yeah. Nardwuar: Was it a bummer getting killed by an angel? You were killed by an angel in the movie The Prophecy II. Glenn Danzig: Yeah, no, it was just a movie. (laughs) Nardwuar: For two years, two years, Glenn, you were in total legal limbo. Now, your new album, 6:66 Satan's Child is out. You demonstrated a lot of patience there, didn't you? Glenn Danzig: Yeah, it was very tough because, uh, my initial reaction would be to go in and like destroy everybody, but, um, I knew in the end I would win, and uh, I did. Nardwuar: When the Misfits played the Channel Club in Boston, years ago, the entire audience showed affection for you by dogpiling on top of you. Like on stage, all these guys like from SSD , and DYS jump on top of you in some video, and when you are finally uncovered, you just say, "That was pretty cool." How did you get through that? All these people dogpiling on top of you! Glenn Danzig: Uh, it's just a Boston thing and I was used to it. I mean, you know, I was part of it too. You know, someone would jump on you, and you would jump on them, and then it would start getting crazy, and then you'd jump out, and then jump back on the pile. Yeah, it was just a Boston thing back then. Nardwuar: Have you ever been scared by anyone, Glenn? Now that you finally have an album out called 6:66 Satan's Child, you know, can you mention the name of the demon, you know, He Who Cannot Be Named? Have you reached that point yet? Glenn Danzig: (laughs) "He Who Cannot Be Named" is about some stuff I had been reading about and um as far as mentioning a name of he who cannot be named, uh I am sure people have mentioned it many times but not realizing it. Nardwuar: Have you yourself ever said it in interviews or in songs? Glenn Danzig: No. Nardwuar: And do you think you ever will? Glenn Danzig: Uh, not for other people, no. I'll let them decide. Nardwuar: And, Glenn Danzig, on 6:66 Satan's Child, you have that tune, "Cult Without A Name." Do you still want to raise an army and start killing people, like, the Danzig Force is the army you have, with the motto, "The Danzig Way: The Only Way"? Glenn Danzig: (laughs) No, um, "Cult Without A Name" is about a lot of different things, um, and it's also about, um, mainly I mean one of the things that's really cool about is it's a metaphor for music... punk and then later on you know hardcore and all that crazy stuff, it's just that the whole journalistic world would just not acknowledge that there was another music than just The Who and Foreigner and you know what I mean? All these you know really awful '70s rock bands. And to this day even MTV and Rolling Stone will not give any credibility or acknowledge to any really hard bands. Nardwuar: It seems though that they do do weird product placement in movies. Like, the film Higher Learning about hate on campus, has the main Nazi character putting up posters in his dorm, including a huge Danzig poster. Glenn Danzig: Yeah. Nardwuar: And then the movie 8mm has the serial killer has the Danzig poster in the bedroom, so it seems that although Hollywood may have ignored it, they kind of have thrown it in there in some weird instances. Glenn Danzig: Well Hollywood has never ignored it. It's the, you know, when I said the music journalists, you know, in the journalistic world, mostly here in America, I mean, punk and hardcore were totally ignored. And even in the beginning, Danzig, no one would even do articles on us, at all. And I know that there are a lot of other bands like that, like Pantera and other bands and just anything that is really hard and in your face always gets treated like it's not, you, like it doesn't exist. Nardwuar: Do you have any control when they say, "We're going to put your poster up" in a movie like Higher Learning or 8mm? Do they actually come to you? Glenn Danzig: Well, in Higher Learning, we had no control. They did that without our permission. Um, so we sued them, which was cool. But in 8mm I thought it was really cool, and I gave them permission to use it. Nardwuar: There is some fun stuff too. Like, a friend of mine was watching Cheers and he looked right in the back room and there was some graffitti scrawled there, and it was like, "Static Static Static - we're on a video rage" on Cheers, written in the washroom! Glenn Danzig: That's pretty weird. I've never seen that. Nardwuar: On 6:66 Satan's Child, there are a whole bunch of great tunes, and it was actually voted best new release of the month by an internet streaming video show, Butterfly Juice! Like, it seems to be getting some great responses! Do you think you will ever end up on an episode of say, Sabrina the Teenage Witch? Glenn Danzig: I doubt it. (laughs) Nardwuar: On the bio for 6:66 Satan's Child, you say you have that basic punk rock attitude, in all your projects. Have you kept up with any punk pals from days of yore? Like, Barry from the Necros and Big Chief, or Tim Kerr from the Big Boys and Monkeywrench. Glenn Danzig: No, I didn't even know Tim had a new band. I haven't talked to Tim in a long time. Barry from the Necros is a fat piece of shit. Nardwuar: A fat piece of shit? Glenn Danzig: A fat piece of shit. Nardwuar: Okay. Just wanted to make sure that you said that. Tim though has some pretty cool stuff. He has the gloves you wore circa "Walk Among Us" , in sort of a shrine. Glenn Danzig: Yeah, Tim's a cool guy. Nardwuar: Did you ever get the form-fitted steel fist made that you were talking about in one of your Danzig home videos? Glenn Danzig: No, I haven't gotten it made. Nardwuar: Amir Derakh, who mixed a lot of your new CD, 6:66 Stain's Child, was in the metal band, Jailhouse. Speaking of hair, didn't you once get suckerpunched by one of the guys in Def Leppard in some lineup? Glenn Danzig: No, that's not true. Nardwuar: What was that incident about? Glenn Danzig: Um, what happened was, me and my security guy were coming out of a catering tent at some festival in Germany, and they all, like the whole Def Leppard, like thirty of them, were getting dropped off with their entourage and everything and they were all just standing there, and I was just standing there with a couple of plates and I was like, "Can you please move? We're trying to get through?" and they all just looked at us like, "Fuck you. Get the fuck out of here." And after about a minute, I just went, "Hey, get the FUCK out of the way!!!" and then they were like, "Oh, you mean that?!!?" and just a bunch of bullshit and nothing happened. Nobody threw any punches. Me and Dennis would have destroyed them. Nardwuar: But you and Henry Rollins chased Vince Neil from Motley Crue down Santa Monica Boulevard for interrupting a Black Flag/Misfits soundcheck at The Whisky-a-Go-Go? Glenn Danzig: It was a Misfits soundcheck, and they didn't interrupt it, they wanted to see what was going on and it was like I think it was Vince and someone else, I think that is what Henry said, and we just went running out, and they were just scampering up the hill or the street or whatever. It was pretty funny. Nardwuar: Are you into lycanthropy? Glenn Danzig:You mean turning into a werewolf? Nardwuar: Yeah. Glenn Danzig: Assuming wolf, uh, characteristics. I've read a lot about it. I've read a lot of books on it. Nardwuar: Do you have any silver around your house, to keep the werewolves away? Glenn Danzig: Not much. (laughs) Nardwuar: And, Glenn, in England they call the devil "Old Nick"? Glenn Danzig: What? Nardwuar: In England, they call the devil "Old Nick!" In England. Glenn Danzig: I don't think they do anymore. Nardwuar: And in the Tower of London, you are not supposed to kill, hurt or disturb ravens. Glenn Danzig: And... what's your point? Nardwuar: Well, what I was curious about, was in the "Lucifuge" video, do you really rip that chicken in half? Like, is that a real chicken? Like I saw the leg. My friend Rob was like freezeframing it one by one - he works in a video store - and he swore that the actual chicken was ripped in half. Glenn Danzig: No, it wasn't ripped in half. Nardwuar: How did you do that little trick? That was amazing! Glenn Danzig: Uh, it was just a cut and edit. You know, uh, at the last minute when you're about to rip the chicken in half, you just let go of one of your hands. That chicken actually got paid like the girls in the video, and the extras. Nardwuar: Really! Glenn Danzig: Yeah. (laughs) We had a chicken wrangler and everything. It was pretty funny. Nardwuar: What do you think of the current crop of those worshipping heathen bands? Like the Norwegian Black Metal bands like Mayhem etc. Do you have any similar philosophies? Glenn Danzig: (coughs) Um, uh, let's see. Nardwuar: A lot of those were profiled in the book "Lords Of Chaos" that came out a little while back. Glenn Danzig: I know, Danzig is cited in there a couple of times. Um, I know we've done shows over in Germany where Cradle of Filth were on the bill, um, and some of them, I don't know if I relate totally to what they are saying, but some things, yeah. Nardwuar: Because there is some pretty crazy stuff, like that Count Grishnacht burning churches, killing Euronimus, and then Death killing himself. Pretty wild! Glenn Danzig: Very extreme. Nardwuar: What's the deal with your Elvis oil painting in the dressing room on tour? Do you have an Elvis oil painting? Glenn Danzig: No, that's Errie. Nardwuar: Oh, that was Errie Von. What's your workout that you do, Glenn? I'm kind of getting back into the gym myself, doing a lot of lateral raises and chest presses, like how do you find time to keep fit? A friend of mine who was backstage at one of your shows swore he saw a full Soloflex weight gym backstage! Do you do that? Do you workout before shows? Glenn Danzig: (silence) Nardwuar: Glenn, do you do any workouts before shows before you are rockin' and rollin'? Glenn Danzig: (silence) Nardwuar: Hello, Glenn Danzig? Hello, Glenn Danzig? Hello, Glenn? Hello, Glenn? Glenn Danzig: (line goes dead) Five minutes later on Nardwuar's voicemail: Glenn Danzig: Hey, Nardwuar, we just got cut off. I'm calling back again. Uh, let's see, I will call you a little later. Part Two: Nardwuar the Human Serviette vs. Glenn Danzig (A few weeks later...) Nardwuar: Glenn, when you are doing your comic label, Verotik , what have you got for inspiration? Like have you ever like gone to a forensic autopsy and checked it out just to get inspiration for some of the stuff you are doing? Glenn Danzig: Uh, no. (laughs) Nardwuar: Michael Jackson actually witnessed a forensic autopsy. Glenn Danzig: I'm not Michael Jackson. I have like autopsy books if I want to look at them. (laughs) Or an SPK video and look at that, and that's fine. Nardwuar: Yeah, and then I guess those "Death Scene" books that Feral House put out. Those are pretty graphic too, right? Glenn Danzig: Uh, I've got old German autopsy book, like real autopsy books for coroners. Nardwuar: What year would that have been? Glenn Danzig: Um, let's see. It's big, it's hard cover, it weighs probably like five pounds. It's a real, you know, it's a book that a coroner would go to to check on how a person was killed and each chapter is like "Death by Electrocution," "Death by Misadventure"... and they're just photos. So this way you can tell the signs of how a person died, when you're cutting them on the slab and you're looking at them to see or to figure out, you know, how they met their demise. Nardwuar: I was checking around on the web, and actually on Ebay somebody is selling a Danzig Gold Record. Glenn Danzig: Someone is selling a Danzig Gold Record? What? Someone from American? Nardwuar: Yeah, check this description out there, Glenn. "Danzig Gold Record Award for sales of the 1st 2 Danzig records. This is the real deal! From American Records- (formerly Def American). Scan shows award in mint condition with original manufacturer's tag still on back. You can change the name on the award plate to your own, just by contacting the manufacturer. This is a true collector's piece, and was obtained from the original recipient" Glenn Danzig: So who's the original recipient? Nardwuar: I don't know. I didn't, I couldn't make it out there. Glenn Danzig:It's probably Eerie , because he's selling everything, he's so broke. (laughs) Nardwuar: That's pretty bizzare - like a Gold Record! Glenn Danzig: Um, hey, that's his life, you know, if he wants to sell it. Nardwuar: What did Eerie originally do? Was he a pool cleaner ? Glenn Danzig: I don't know if he was a pool cleaner, but he uh I think he worked in a factory. Nardwuar: Was it that big factory that that that that Jerry's family had, that same factory? Glenn Danzig: No. Nardwuar: Because also on Ebay a little while ago there was The Misfits "Legacy of Brutality" on pink vinyl and it went for $3000.00 . Glenn Danzig: Three thousand dollars? Nardwuar: Yup. "Legacy of Brutality", pink vinyl. Because I think there was something like they mixed up the vinyls when they were making it and there were only a few made-like ten! Glenn Danzig: Oh, yeah, I did that because I was there. Nardwuar: What happened? Glenn Danzig: Uh, I just told them not to - we were going from red to white vinyl, and I told them not to clean the thing; just pour in the white. (laughs) Actually I think we did the white first and then we poured in the red, that's how it went. ... I just did that because I was into collecting records and lots of my friends were and, you know,there were a select amount of people out there that wanted that kind of stuff, you know? Nardwuar: Well, Glenn Danzig, your new LP, 6:66 Satan's Child continues, like, your strong lyrical presence! And you've had amazing lyrics in the past, like, "Carve a hole in your distorted soul. I'm here to bang it!" Or, "I'm coming in your hole. I waste you girl." I'm just curious, are you de-mystifying sex through these lyrics? Are you degrading it to the listener? What exactly is your angle on those? Glenn Danzig: Umm, well it depends on the song, and the character I'm writing as in the song. Nardwuar: Like, "Carve a hole in your distorted soul"- Glenn Danzig: That's about the world. That has nothing to do with sex. Nardwuar: Oh, okay. Glenn Danzig: Yeah. But the other line you, uh- Nardwuar: "I'm coming in your hole. I waste you girl"? Glenn Danzig: I don't say, "I waste you girl." It says, "I'm coming in your hole." And then it says, "I'm coming in your home." It's about stalker. It's called "Stalker Song." It's about a stalker. So it alternates from "I'm coming in your home" to "I'm coming in your hole," um, and then, uh, the next line is, "I wish you would." Nardwuar: How do you feel about people reading into your lyrics- Glenn Danzig: Fine- Nardwuar: Because I guess like many successful artists over the years that have been well-respected, you have taken a lot of the heat for some of your lyrics and, I guess, thoughts you've put out there. Is it okay to read you an excerpt of this interview that I found? Glenn Danzig: Sure. Nardwuar: This is a NoMeansNo interview. I don't know if you are familiar with the punk band NoMeansNo? Glenn Danzig: I can't stand them. Nardwuar: Oh, you don't like them? Have you ever met them before? Glenn Danzig: No. Nardwuar: Okay, this is a NoMeansNo interview by John Durbin, in the July/August 1998 issue of Vice Magazine, Volume 5, Number 6, page 38, NoMeansno say, "Fuck Danzig! Whatever he does, our work is the opposite of that. I think If he'd been two feet taller, he might have been a normal human being. But he's stunted in more ways than one. To us, it's not just show business. We're not a band that preaches in a negative way. Etc. etc. etc." What do you think when you hear stuff like that, when people are critiquing your lyrics like that? Glenn Danzig: Um.... it's it's it's pretty funny. (laughs) They're just haters. (laughs) Nardwuar: if if - Glenn Danzig: They're just haters. If they saw me, they wouldn't say shit. Nardwuar: Right- Glenn Danzig: You know, they're probably go, "Oh could we go out on tour with you?" You know. They' just haters. Tons of haters. It's like if you're a struggling, starving "indie" band playing at small little clubs and that they're doing better than you then they like you. (laughs) Nardwuar: What do you think of these- Glenn Danzig: They can go fuck themselves. And they probably do. So, there you go. Nardwuar: What do you think of these lyrics, Glenn? "I'm the scarecrow man, the scarecrow man. I've come to kill you, I will, I'm gonna eat you, but I'm still the scarecrow man, the scarecrow man." Glenn Danzig: They're awful. Nardwuar: That's by the new Misfits. Glenn Danzig: Yeah. Nardwuar: Have you watched wrestling lately? Have you been taking any pleasure in seeing your former bandmate in the Misfits ,Jerry ONLY, getting his ass kicked wrestling? Glenn Danzig: It's pretty funny but I can't stand seeing WCW wrestling because it is so like rednecky and so like geeky and it's like real soft. I can only watch ECW and WWF where there's like realy violence and blood and stuff. I can't watch that fucking Ted Turner crap. Nardwuar: So you've seen Jerry though on wrestling. I guess you can't really get away from it, can you? Glenn Danzig: It's pretty funny. I mean, it's sad they just come on for like two seconds and they get their asses kicked. (laughs) I don't know why they're on there. I guess it's just to get their asses kicked. I don't know. (laughs) Nardwuar: On your new CD, Glenn, 6:66 Satan's Child, you have a song "Cold Eternal." Do you like sunlight? Glenn Danzig: Huh. No, I don't. I know it's necessary but I don't really like it that much. Nardwuar: The song you wrote for Johnny Cash, "13," which is also on 6:66 Satan's Child has a line in it, "When the ink starts to itch, then the black will turn to red." Is that autobiographical? Glenn Danzig: Um, it kind of is, yeah, but it is more, in other words, it's a take on, you know, when somebody starts... pissing, you know, in this case, I wrote the song about Johnny Cash, my impression of him. I wrote it for him. Um, it's my impression of like if you have a tattoo and if someone is pissing you off and it starts to itch, that means it's going to be blood. Nardwuar: What do you think of bands like that like Plan 9 or... the Astrozombies or Misfits cover bands? Glenn Danzig: I think some of them are better than the Misfits actually right now. (laughs) That's my atti - you know, that's the way I see it. It's sad but true. Nardwuar: Some of them are pretty authentic. Like, my friend Rob Nesbitt and his band the Astro-Zombies, he painted like three pairs of gloves and he had a seamstress cut the same indent you had on your gloves in the Misfits! Glenn Danzig: Uh huh. Nardwuar: And then he like cut and sewed his own Captain Harlock shirt, had two skeletons shirts, a simple one and another one modelled on a zipper that he saw you wearing on some other shirt. Glenn Danzig: Man, I just painted it on a fucking longsleeve T-shirt. (laughs) Nardwuar: Really? Glenn Danzig: That's it. Yeah. (laughs) Nardwuar: Like he spent hours. And he spent a hell of a time getting tight T-shirts as well. Glenn Danzig: Yeah. I used to do this one thing where I would collect the sleeves, and also the collars, I would put snaps on them. That's about it. Nardwuar: So he went to all this length doing it! I guess he was wondering... where do you get tight T-shirts? Do you, like, on tour, do you ever go to like the women's section of a thrift shop and look for tight fitting shirts? How do you find those tight fitting shirts? How do you find those tight fitting shirts , Glenn? Glenn Danzig: Um, if you want a tight fitting shirt, the easiest way is if you're like a medium, you buy a small. (laughs) It's pretty simple. Nardwuar: But how about finding some uh- Glenn Danzig: Your friend should invest in some braincells! (laughs) Nardwuar:Well how about really small ones? Have you ever gone to like a K-Mart and tried on a kiddie sized shirt, or one of those Incredible Hulks ones? Does that work well? Glenn Danzig: No, it doesn't work well. As a matter of fact, um, Jay from Orgy was like into, while we were doing the mixing, he was into like wearing shirts that were like... eighteen sizes too small. (laughs) I mean, I remember me and Eerie trying to make like, uh, Garbage Pail Kids T-shirts fit us, you know, we were trying to get the largest kiddie size that there was, but they just didn't fit! (laughs) Nardwuar: How did you, did you buy them? Or were you trying them on right in the K-Mart? How did you- Glenn Danzig: Oh, yeah, you had to buy them. So you try and buy a kids large or extra-large, and try and you know, fit into it, but it just wouldn't work and it would just start ripping up the sides or whatever, so I would just save it for my collection or whatever. Nardwuar: They didn't let you try them on in the store or anything then, eh? Glenn Danzig: No, but it wouldn't work anyway because then if you rip you'd got to pay for it anyway. Nardwuar: Have you ever played a gig in Danzig, the city of Danzig? Glenn Danzig: No. Nardwuar: Because that was like the free city that was like the flashpoint for World War II and it was also the- Glenn Danzig: That was the German city that was taken away from them. Nardwuar: Yeah, it was also where the movie Tin Drum was set. Glenn Danzig: Uh. Nardwuar: Have you ever seen Tin Drum? Glenn Danzig: Yeah. Nardwuar: And now it is known as Gdansk, where Solidarity's Lesh Walennza was from. Glenn Danzig: Wow! Nardwuar: And Glenn, you have brought a lot of joy into people's lives. A guy I know is a courier in LA, and he says, you know, you've made it in LA when you're like , your day has been made-- because he has been doing all these menial tasks --when you are like driving through Hollywood Hills and you see Glenn Danzig, shirtless, washing his Porsche in Hollywood Hills! It's just like... you've totally made it. And Beck has also commented on this in an interview recently , are you a big fan of Beck, Glenn? Glenn Danzig: No. (laughs) Nardwuar: Not NoMeansNo, or Beck either! Because this is what Beck said recently in an interview where he was interviewed driving throughtout Los Angeles , "Everything's going upscale around here," Beck says, scanning the manicured lawns and homes, "except for Glenn Danzig's house." The horror-rocker lives in a quaintly sepulchral hacienda with a large pile of bricks out front. "He's had that stack of bricks there for about eight years now," Beck says. "I think it's a statement." Glenn Danzig: Yeah. It's a statement that I ain't Beck. And I ain't "going upscale." How's that? Nardwuar: That's for sure! Is there a pile of bricks outside your house? Glenn Danzig: Sure is. Nardwuar: Wow oh boy - wow, that's, that's wild to think that Beck might have been driving out in your neighbourhood looking for inspiration. Glenn Danzig: (laughs) Nardwuar: And Glenn Danzig, on the Danzig Home Video, the security guards have T-shirts that say "God Don't Like It." What does god not like? Glenn Danzig: Uh, God doesn't like anybody calling his shit out. Nardwuar: Calling his shit out. Glenn Danzig: I was exposing how phony all, mostly all religion is. Nardwuar: Now there's lesbianism in the Bible too, isn't there? Like in the Old Testaments the matriarchs- Glenn Danzig: There's everything in there. Nardwuar: Yeah, but what was the most surprising thing you found in there? Just for beginners, in the Old Testament? The matriarchs lie together? Glenn Danzig: There's lots of different stuff in there that would, would shock people and then when you tell people they don't believe it like that, where human sacrifice appears, and when you tell them that God asked Abraham to kill his son, I mean, people say, "No, that's not in the Bible." I'm like, "Yeah, it's in the Bible, man." They had to do animal and human sacrifices to God. "No, they never did." Yup, they did. (laughs) Nardwuar: Are you into giving bones out as Christmas presents or anything? Or just bones as gifts for people? Glenn Danzig: No. Nardwuar: Is it really that frustrating that there is only one distributor for comic books? Is there any other way to get them into the stores? Glenn Danzig: No, it's pretty much a monopoly. Nardwuar: How can that... be? At least with records there's a few, or there's like indie distributors. Glenn Danzig: Um, the main company, Diamond, put them all out of business. (laughs) ... Hey man, I've got to go answer the door. I'm the only guy here. Nardwuar: Okay, uh, Glenn, just one last thing. Who do you think would win a fight, Satan or Superman? Glenn Danzig: Um. Satan. Nardwuar: And, Glenn Danzig, doot doola doot doo.... Glenn Danzig: Whatever. Nardwuar: Doot doola doot doo... Glenn Danzig: You're nuts!
