MISFITS Project 1950 Featured On 'Monday Night Football'

On Monday, November 24, 2003, ABC TV's "Monday Night Football" (consistently one of the top-rated shows in the country reaching over 20 million viewers weekly) chose to use the cover version of "Great Balls of Fire" from the new Misfits Records/Rykodisc release "Misfits Project 1950" in a montage leading into the second-half kick off.

Jerry Only states: "When I was in high school playing football, I always dreamed of being on ABC's 'Monday Night Football'. It was a real thrill for me during the Giants game when 'Great Balls of Fire' from PROJECT 1950 came on and opened the second-half kick off. Thanks to Jerry Lee Lewis for a great song and thanks to the NFL for finally making my dream come true of being on 'Monday Night Football'!"

The new CD, "Misfits Project 1950", which showcases punk covers of 1950s-era classics was recently issued in a limited edition 180-gram blue vinyl pressing with gatefold sleeve and additional liner notes unavailable in the CD version.
