Misfits & Ramones featured in Yahoo's 25 Essential Punk Albums list

The Misfits

The folks at Yahoo have compiled a list of 25 of the most essential punk rock albums of all time. Among those featured on the list are the Misfits ("Walk Among Us"), the Ramones ("Leave Home") and Minor Threat ("Out of Step"). You can check out the full list here. NJ's own Misfits are currently touring in support of their new album The Devil's Rain.

6) Misfits -- Walk Among Us: Recently re-listened to this one and dang if it didn't come racing out of the speakers like I owed it money. The unison chants mean anybody can sing along and the ratty sound erroneously convinced aspiring punks that anyone could play it. But that isn't so, as thirty years of schoolin' haven't put nobody on no day shift. [Rob O'Connor, Yahoo]
