Beware was the fifth release from the Lodi, New Jersey, horror punk band The Misfits. Beware was co-released in the UK in January 1980 by Armageddon/Spartan Records and in the US by Glenn Danzig's Plan 9 Records as number PLP9.

Released January 1980. 1. We Are 138 Lyrics. We kept noticing these signs "BEWARE BOLLARDS everywhere. We had no idea that a bollard was a block that kept you from driving your car onto the sidewalk, but were amused at the tone of the signs. It made it sound like a bollard was some kind of beast that jumped out from behind the bushes and ate you. Just before handing the artwork to the guy from Bonapart, Glenn just scrawled the word BEWARE on a scrap of paper and slapped it on the artwork.

Tracklist: Side . We Are 138 2. Bullet 3. Hollywood Babylon 4. Attitude. Side . Horror Business 2. Teenagers from Mars 3. Last Caress. This 12" EP was co-released in the UK in January of 1980 by Armageddon/Spartan Records and Glenn Danzig's Plan 9 Records as number PLP9. A limited number of copies were sold within the US through the Misfits Fiend Club, which included an 8"x10" photo of the album cover as an insert. The other side was essentially the Horror Business EP.

I think I have an original copy of "Beware". How can I be sure? Any help would be appreciated.Contact me at [email protected]

Well it would look like I do have this pressing. What would recommend I do with it? Although I have listened to this, maybe twice, it's not something out of my collection (5,000+) that I return to. Thanks so much for your help!

Original's have a white spine, the beware overlaps the top edge & has grey smoke coming from Jerry's left shoulder. There's also MAX in the runout grooves
kewdiepie
there is no 'return of the fly' on the original 12", you are refering to a bootleg
Rrd
How come no-one says that side 2 has "return of the fly" after last caress??

"Last Caress" is one of the best songs I've ever heard in my life! it's been one of my favorites since I was 13!! dispire the horrible things Danzig is singing about hahah (killing your baby & raping your mother) it's a very beautiful song. the music is amazing. simple, but the harmonies are perfect.
