It’s Glenn Danzig’s favorite time of the year, and the Misfits legend has emerged for an interview with OC Weekly. Discussing his Nov. 3 show just outside of Hollywood Babylon, the vocalist shared his views on the mainstream media and their control of information.

When Danzig was asked about how closely he pays attention to current events, the horror rocker replied, “All I will say is that I just think that its ridiculous with this farce in our government. It’s a fucked up situation in politics, but the media won’t show or tell us who really owns and runs the world, the real hidden hand of those in power. They have all the control and what you see read or here, and the politicians, they are all just puppets.”

Danzig continues, “It’s all bought and paid and it’s all about control. I think people need to wake up, turn off the TV and think for themselves and not be mindless robots. Don’t accept something just on its face value, don’t let the system enslave your mind and don’t give up any of your rights.”

Danzig will celebrate 30 years of his solo career with his Nov. 3 show in Irvine, Calif. The gig features the diverse lineup of Danzig, the Damned, Venom Inc., the Meteors, Power Trip and Mutoid Man. “I am really looking forward to the lineup of different bands, in Irvine on Nov. 3, from black metal to punk, I am proud of this one it’s going to go off,” Danzig says.
