According to a report from Cleveland Scene, there were apparently plans underway for a proper reunion between the Misfits and their estranged singer-songwriter, Glenn Danzig. However, according to an interview with former Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein:

"We were actually going to do a Misfits reunion with Glenn. But Jerry put a fuckin' monkey wrench in it. [In] 2002, we had meetings ... And [Jerry] kind of fucked it up, him and his manager. We were going to do a record, do a tour and everything. So let all the Misfits fans put that in their pipe and smoke it."

Over the years since 2002, rumors have always emerged that Danzig would reunite with his former bandmates, but the singer always vigorously denied them. In fact, during the lead up to the singer's 2005 Blackest of the Black tour, Glenn noted: "It's the closest thing to a Misfits reunion anyone is ever going to see!"

    That would have have been sick. Seeing my favourite band with Danzig back would be amazing

    Oh well, I almost cared about the Misfits beyond the Danzig-era. Whoever that Jerry guy is, he sounds like a lame Elvis and should stop doing anything music related.

    I've only just got into Misfits, so i'm not too sure about whats been going on with them, but it would be cool for them to get back together with Danzig, theyve done some great songs!

    its whatever man the misfits will never be able to be restored to their former selves. it sucks that some people cant get past their differences. i don't think its just Jerry i think its all of them really they all need to get passed the shit that happened in the past and get on with life and i do agree with james1210 danzig is starting to lose the awesomeness of his voice which you can tell in danzig III:how the gods kill, and unfortunately they all do with age.

    to clarify, that quote from Danzig at the end of the article was when Doyle joined him on-stage. I bet this was probably just Doyle and Danzig chilling backstage being like "dude let's reform the Misfits" and then Glenn says "dude that guy's an *****" Doyle - "yeah, **** it."
