Danzig is an American rock band, formed in 1987 in Lodi, New Jersey. The band serves as a musical outlet for singer/composer Glenn Danzig (formerly of Misfits and Samhain), who is the only member to have been in every incarnation of the band since its formation.

The original lineup, consisting of Glenn Danzig (vocals), John Christ (guitar), Eerie Von (bass) and Chuck Biscuits (drums), spanned seven years and four albums. Danzig experienced its first lineup changed in 1994, when Biscuits was ultimately fired from the band due to royalty disagreements. After he was rejected upon asking to return, and - according to a special issue of Kerrang! magazine, former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl turned down an approach from them, he was replaced by Joey Castillo, who made his first public appearance as a member of Danzig at an in-store signing the day of the fourth album's release.

After promoting the fourth Danzig album, John Christ and Eerie Von both left the band in July 1995, leaving Glenn Danzig as the only remaining original member of the band. Many lineup changes happened since; guitarists included Dave Kushner, Jeff Chambers, Todd Youth, Joe Fraulob and Kenny Hickey, bassists included Josh Lazie, Rob "Blasko" Nicholson, Howie Pyro and Jerry Montano and drummers included Bevan Davies and Karl Rosqvist. The current Danzig line-up consists of Glenn Danzig on vocals, Tommy Victor on guitar, Steve Zing on bass and Johnny Kelly on drums.
