Dizzy Draztik (1999-2002)

Dizzy Draztik was the singer of a band called the Rejects back in 1994 with Joey Jordison . The band broke up due to the creation of Slipknot but by 1999 Joey resurrected the band with Dizzy.

Joey introduced Dizzy to the music of the Frankenstein Drag Queens of Planet 13 and they tried to drag Wednesday 13 into the band a few times. It was not until 2001 that Wednesday 13 joined Dizzy in The Rejects as a bassist. Not long after Dizzy left the band to take of his mother and Wednesday 13 moved into the vocalist spot and changed the name of the band to the Murderdolls. Dizzy then started a new band called Bomb Pop Mafia.

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.

Joey Jordison

Joey Jordison (2002-2004 / 2010-2011)

In 2001 while on Slipknot was on the Ozzfest tour Joey Jordison met Tripp Eisen from Static X and they started a conversation of doing a side project. 2002 the band was created and called The Rejects but they went through a name change called Murderdolls and they recruited Wednesday 13 originally to play bass from the Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13.  After the vocalist Dizzy left the band for personal reasons Wednesday 13 took over the mic and they started to re-record old Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13 and Maniac Spider Trash songs.

In 2002 The Rejects released a mix of recordings called Strung Out, Pissed Off and Ready to Die. Dizzy released a CD called Love Songs for People that Hate in 2013 form The Rejects. Some of the recordings were recorded 17 years before the release.

Joey in this band did not sit behind the drumkit like his other band Slipknot but instead played guitar.  The band once settled with members along such as Wednesday 13 (vocals), Tripp Eisen  (guitar), Eric Griffon (bass) and drummer at the time Ben Graves the band recorded their first EP called Right to Remain Violent in 2002.

Not long after that record they decided to do a full length record and released Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls. Which like the record before was made up of past Wednesday 13 songs which were re-recorded. The record was a big success and with the help of their imagery of looking like a cross between old Motley Crue meets Marilyn Manson they gained a huge fan base. Even in 2002 they made an appearance on a episode of Dawson Creek.

In 2004 the band played their finally show with this line up as Joey wanted to focus back to Slipknot. The band did not split up but it was seen as a break for Joey and Wednesday 13.

In 2010 Joey and Wednesday 13 revisited the Murderdolls  working together again and they recorded  Women and Children Last. They did not reunite the past members of the band ,  instead recruited guitarist Roman Surman for the record and tour. After a few touring in support of the record Wednesday 13 announced that the Murderdolls have split up. The reasoning between Joey and Wednesday 13 was disclosed.
