According to a report from Cleveland Scene, there were apparently plans underway for a proper reunion between the Misfits and their estranged singer-songwriter, Glenn Danzig. However, according to an interview with former Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein:
We were actually going to do a Misfits reunion with Glenn. But Jerry put a fuckin' monkey wrench in it. [In] 2002, we had meetings … And [Jerry] kind of fucked it up, him and his manager. We were going to do a record, do a tour and everything. So let all the Misfits fans put that in their pipe and smoke it.
Over the years since 2002, rumors have always emerged that Danzig would reunite with his former bandmates, but the singer always vigorously denied them. In fact, during the lead up to the singer's 2005 Blackest of the Black tour, Glenn noted: "It's the closest thing to a Misfits reunion anyone is ever going to see!"
