Glenn Danzig suing former Misfits bandmate Jerry Only over logo royalties

07 May 2014, 12:15 | Written by Luke Morgan Britton

​Seemingly taking notes from Black Flag, the Misfits’ former frontman Glenn Danzig is suing ex-bandmate Jerry Only over ownership of the punk band’s iconic logo.

​The seminal image - depicting a skull in black and white - was licensed by all the band’s original members in 1994, before Only allegedly re-registered the trademarks in his name alone during the year 2000. In the lawsuit - filed on 3 April in California - Danzig accused Only of striking up deals with a number of retailers, including Hot Topic, behind his back.

Danzig left the group in 1983, with Only serving as leader ever since.
