The Rejects – Love Songs for People that Hate (2013)

It is believed that this record was recorded over 17 years before its actual release in 2013. Dizzy Draztik released Love Songs for People that Hate as a collection of The Rejects recordings. We do know that Dizzy Draztik, Joey Jordison, Katie Scabs (replaced Racci Shay) and Tripp Eisen were on all the recordings but which ones if any had Wednesday 13 on them would take some background searching as he was a bassist for a short time and became singer of the band in 2002. Which later on became the Murderdolls.But by credits it states its him on bass as Wednesday 6.

Personal View

Classic punk metal before the horror rock and the name change happened. Dizzy voice might take some time to get use to as he has the influence of Dead Kennedys and more head on punk bands.  Song and lyric wise though you can feel the energy and see where the Murderdolls came from and some of the songs are pre of Dress to Depress (Shez Gonna Go).  This record screams classic, maybe not Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13 classic pure still classic. Typical punk with some tongue in cheek lyrics and some of the tunes are actually catchy like Alice Is DeadThe Radio Song and Put Out Or Get Out.   I Used To Be In Love (Changed My Mind) actually has some detailed guitar work for a punk band even.

The Rejects (1994 / 1999 – 2002)

The Rejects was created back in 1994 by Joey Jordison and Dizzy Dratik fronting the band. The band had a very underground punk feel at the time and non of the horror related themes. The band broke up when Joey decided to join Slipknot as a drummer.

The band went through members such as Corey Taylor (guitar) and Paul Grey (bass) but in 1999 Joey met up with Tripp Eisen and asked him if he was interested in a project that he was thinking of resurrecting. Tripp said yes and dragged along drummer from Dope Racci Shay (who was in the band earlier) and a  guy named Ian Wiseman on bass from Vampire Love Dolls.  Racci Shay did end up leaving the band and was replaced by Katie Scabs in 2002.

Joey also introduced Dizzy the music of the Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13 and they thought about possibly bringing Wednesday 13 in the band. But it was not until 2001 when they offered Wednesday 13 a position in the band as a bassist. Not long in the band Dizzy left the band as the front man for personal reasons (take care of his mother) and Wednesday 13 became the vocalist. Dizzy and Wednesday 13 (some say he was known as Wednesday 6 at this time) literally played one show together in early 2002. They changed the name of the band to Murderdolls and took on the horror theme and started to re-record old Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13 songs in mid 2002.
