The Misfits are not members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, however this does not mean that they will not be there in some capacity.

In commemoration of the group’s first performance forty years ago at the famed CBGB club in New York City, artifacts from the band will be at display. Specifically, founding member, Jerry Only’s custom bass guitar and the leather vest are now on display. 

The items are on display with other former possessions of the Ramones and the Talking Heads.

For what it is worth, The Misfits are ranked #218 on our latest Rock and Roll list.

211. Misfits

If you check through the list of critics top tens in the late 70’s and early 80’s you will find it littered with Punk bands. Despite the Misfits being one of the more popular Punk bands in history, critical love and the Misfits were not hand in hand.
