Danzig is the debut album of the American heavy metal band Danzig, released in August, 1988. The album was the first release on producer Rick Rubin's new label Def American Recordings. Def American's successor, American Recordings reissued the album in the United States and United Kingdom in 1998. It remains the band's best-selling album having been certified Gold in the . in 1994, and has since been certified Platinum. Danzig promoted the album with a successful world tour in 1988–1989.
Danzig is seeking however much money he is owed from the sales of the merchandising deals, plus interest. And in true Danzig fashion, there is a wonderful dig at Jerry Only (aka Jerry Caiafa) in Section 9 of the document: After forming the band, Danzig replaced the original bass player with Caiafa, whose primary qualification was that he had recently received a bass guitar for Christmas. You can almost hear Danzig telling his lawyer, Put that in there, the part about me only letting him in because he got a bass for Christmas
Danzig was quoted as saying I don’t wanna direct some Academy Award piece of shit, and it looks like he followed through on that promise.

Glenn Danzig’s first eponymous album was a thunderous, Rick Rubin-produced progression of his moody, Evil Elvis sound. It’s the pinnacle of goth populism. That’s when Danzig got around to talking with the mysterious beardo he spotted backstage earlier in the night. This much-hyped rap producer and label owner was one Rick Rubin. He saw immense potential in Danzig and offered to sign him-provided the frontman cleaned house.
In response to seemingly every punk band doing a Misfits tribute show for Halloween, Detroit's Bump-N-Uglies will be playing a special show as Demonsweat: a loving tribute to Danzig on Wednesday October 31st. These local legends will mangle selections from the first 3 Danzig albums. Also on the bill will be The Outsiders (going as Outsiders from Mar. Misfits tribute band) and local upstarts Malpractice.
