               VIOLENT WORLD - A Tribute To The Misfits
                     Release date: February 11, 1997

 Imagine mixing Metal, Hardcore, East and West Coast Punk, Krishnacore and
 Vegan Straight Edge with the outrageous b-movie horror fixation of the
 Misfits.  You'd have the Violent World: a homage to one of the greatest
 punk rock bands ever by some of the best hard rock bands of the 1990's,
 bands that would not be the same today without the Misfits.

 Violent World consisits of 14 never-before-released Misfits covers which
 were recorded exclusively for this record.   Many of these bands including
 Snapcase, Therapy? and Pennywise have added these versions to their live
 sets, further preaching the Misfits evergrowing legacy to new legions of
 fans across the country and around the world.

 The bands on this compilation chose what song to cover and with whom they
 would record it.  They chose people like the legendary hardcore guru Don
 Fury, producer of CIV and Quicksand, who recorded both the Bouncing Souls
 and Sick Of It All tracks and Bill Stevenson, of Descendents, ALL and
 Black Flag fame, who produced the Shades Apart track.

                                 Track List:
                               Snapcase - She
