on Of Sam was a Horror Punk/Deathrock "supergroup" side project masterminded by Todd Youth in 2000, during his tenure as the guitarist for Danzig. The band recorded one album, which features members of Samhain, Danzig, and AFI.

In 1999, Youth was invited by Glenn Danzig to fill in the guitar posistion for the Samhain reunion tour, replacing Samhain's original guitarist, Pete "Damien" Marshall, who had opted out in order to tour with Iggy Pop. Playing guitar for the Samhain reunion inspired Youth to write an album worth of Samhain influenced music. Youth then contacted Steve Zing and London May (both ex–Samhain members), who were impressed with what Todd had written, and agreed to help him record an album. The project was dubbed "Son of Sam", a nod to the fact that the band was spawned out of the Samhain reunion. Davey Havok, whose band, AFI, had opened for the Samhain reunion tour, was invited to write lyrics and record vocals for the album, since it was well known that Havok was a huge Samhain fan.

In a very short amount of time, they recorded an album of 10 tracks called "Songs From The Earth" and released it on Nitro Records in 2001. "To me, doing this record was sort of a tribute to Samhain. Playing guitar for Samhain on the reunion tour was such an honor. I had forgotten how much I love and respect the band," Youth stated. The album featured guest appearances from Glenn Danzig on two tracks.

It is commonly believed that Son Of Sam was a one off project, although all involved have, at one time or another, expressed interest in recording a follow up. However, this is unlikely to happen, due to conflicting schedules and commitments to other bands.
