Where are they now: Girl from Danzig's "Mother" video


If you were anything like me during the early 90's, you probably stayed up every saturday night to watch Headbanger's Ball. Sure, they mostly played Trixter and LA Guns videos...but once a while a gem would come up. Around 1990 or so, the best you could hope for was Anthrax or maybe Danzig. For my money, the Mother video was about the best one they could show. While other metal videos were filled with nothing but shirtless dudes, Danzig knew his fan base and always put semi-decent chicks in his videos. "Mother" was a prime example of this. Although I never found the two girls to be all that great looking, I often wonder where they are these days. Were they low-level porno actresses who still live in a lair under Danzig's house? Were they Eerie Von's cousins from Indiana? The ones that were willing to do anything in order to make it in Hollywood, and now work at diaper factory Bakersfield? Well, thanks to Metal Inquisition, you don't have to wonder anymore. I happened upon a video of a woman dancing to the famed song here, and quickly figured out who she was. That's right...she's still alive. Barely. She's still dancing to "Mother" too. Her face also looks like it caught on fire, and the fire was put out with soccer cleats. Watch and learn:




Aside from dancing to Mother, she takes requests and will dance to your band's music. She'll also show up to your band's show (if your band is a Pearl Jam cover band) and dance awkwardly on stage while people cringe.




Oh, and did I mention that she believes Glenn Danzig put a curse on her during the taping of the video?




While I believe that the videos above answer many questions that have always surrounded the Mother video, many are still unanswered. For example: Why is Glenn's mouth always triangular in shape?



Also, what was that thing that was on fire supposed to be? A torch? Glenn's fist?



I guess we'll never know.

  1. Lucho, this a sad post... poor woman. Not only she aged badly, but she also names herself "the mother chick". Imagine the desperation of someone to turn a Danzig´s song into her own nickname. Thanx for ruining my day...

  4. She looks like a version of Lita Ford. Don't know what version, though.
    I too stayed up at night waiting for the triple thrash treat on Headbangers ball. A boring wait just to see Biohazard or Pantera or shit like that...but they also premiered Massacre one night!

  5. I sent this video to my brother and he said "thanks now i'm gong to kill myself". that's exactly how I felt. Can you imagine doing something in your youth that so defined you (in your eyes) and thus made you always refer to yourself by that one thing? ugh. its such a bummer.

  6. Awesome piece.

    Similar to a Halloween pumpkin, I think Danzigs mouth with always be shaped like a triangle.

    I used to stay up every weekend until 2:51am watching Headbangers ball just so I could see the Kreator video for "Betrayer"....sandwiched between White Lion and Ratt of course!

  7. Priceless!!
    Another unanswered question is:
    -Who convinced Glen to keep his shirt on during the whole length of the video?
    I thought that wasn't possible.

  8. Damn you Lucho. You've made me super confused. She has the hair and dress sense of this really hot chick I went to school with, but the face and meandering speech patterns of my 80 year old grandma. WHY DID YOU CURSE ME LUCHO? I know that's what you did.

  9. You cursed me, but no hard feelings, -I survived the 7th arc- and I am ready to fend some mences. Remember the car wash?

  10. Hahaha, the mother video is so funny to watch. I love Glenn's hammy facial expressions. They make my day.

    R.I.P. Chuck Biscuits.

  11. i got a videotape full of headbangers' ball videos from a friend when i was 15 or so (my parents didn't have cable back then). even though he copied only videos of good bands (thrash and death metal), i only made it halfway through the tape because ALL metal videos are (were?) boring as hell.

  12. Wow - it looks like she has been on a meth bender for all those years

    Sad, very sad

  13. oh man... this is great. thanks!!

  14. Bitch be crazy. And how does she think Glen is going to see the video?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Another nugget of internet gold dug up by the masters. Let this be a lesson to all you kids out there: Just say NO to drugs...and laying on anyone's altar. I only wish Chuck Biscuits was still alive to see it.
    RIP CHUCK!

  16. Did anyone else watch the new video of her dancing and think of Jame Gumb dancing in The Silence Of The Lambs? Something about the way she moves backwards from the camera, shaking her hips, made me expect that we'd see her hiding her dick when her waist came into view.

  19. Oh my fucking god. Her youtube account is like 700 feet of iceberg lurking just underneath the craziness in this post. (An iceberg made of meth.)

  20. These may be the Mother-Of-All "Aged Badly" videos. Really, really sad and frightening in a way Danzig would give all his mesh shirts to be.

    I, as well, only experienced the glory (?!?) of Headbangers Ball via VHS (or was it Beta?). It's hard to remember most of it now but I do recall the awesomeness of Voivod's "Tribal Convictions".

    Well, the song was awesome at least.

  21. How can you possibly age so fucking badly ? My granny looked younger. What about that kind of semi-erotic swimming suit she wears. Good God, I feel bad for her.

  22. Wow...

    I don't know what else to say...

    Just wow...

  23. This was both equal parts of hilarious and depressing.

  24. You guys should write something about bands with the most ridiculous monikers ever. After VISCERAL EVISCERATION, I discovered a band called STRANGLED BY STRANGULATION.

    Also you might wanna look at these chicks playing goregrind at teatime in front of...well, the guy who's taping the video !

    ReplyDelete
  25. They're called PUTREFIED BEAUTY

  26. I couldn't stand this video, or the song or the album or Danzig post Samhain. Loved the Misfits and Samhain. It was like once Danzig got the hair out of his face and opened his mouth other than to sing it all just went downhill for how I felt about him.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The name visceral evisceration could be stupid, but the lyrics were hilarious and the band is one of the best doom death bands I've ever heard. Have been enjoying them for more than a decade and still can't believe how good their only full length is.

  28. So awesome. Born again with curse hang ups.

  30. iggy pop x chicken lady from kids in the hall (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXrAczfl3bs) in mtf transition...gone horribly wrong (?!)

  31. I gotta say that I used the Danzig hype back in the day as a barometer to measure the poser-radiation eminating from the kids at school who supposedly "metal", sadly they progressed more and more out of the land of metal as predicted and are now listening to such horrible things as Joy Division, She Wants Revenge and The Pixies... I fucking knew it! Danzig never lies... btw The Misfits are responsible for all this anthemic gay 'PUNK' everywhere on the radio and yes Hatebreed sucks balls.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Awesome post, but I might also add that if you are lucky enough to get Vh1 Classic, Metal Mania is pretty awesome show, I've seen nuclear assault on there, voivod, anthrax, and even celtic frost. Sure it was the video for cherry orchards but, but hey! at least they try, I mean right??

  33. Glenn better stay the fuck away from that psychotic hog-bitch; she is definitely still cursed.

  34. Hey Guys! I AM themotherchick, and I want y'all to LIGHTEN UP with the nasty remarks and comments about someone you don't even know. The video I made, I AM ACTING!!!! I am playing a role, where I am washed out and exhausted, ON PURPOSE!!! Like I'd been literally through hell. Get it? Shit even Glenn, who knows me way better than any of you ever will, would have nicer things to say about me.
    Stop analyzing me and everything I do, and just enjoy the fucking show, HUH?
    xox

    ReplyDelete
  35. hey 'themotherchick'.... that's no acting and you know it. is 'ACTING' the code word for meth-fit these days?

    don't hold your breath waiting for 'Glenn' to contact you. and you were put on this site to be laughed at - and I'm laughing, HARD.

    the 'show' is beyond creepy, but the laugh factor is high.

    I think I speak for everyone, including Glenn - GET A LIFE. stop being 'themotherchick' and try being 'theformermethaddictwhoneedsalife' - no one gives a fuck about the 'Mother' video from 100 years ago.

    I'm sure if Glenn saw you now it would only remind him that he's an old hag now too. Leave the guy be.

    ReplyDelete
  36. If the curse is broken, why does she still look like a leathery frog?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Well then! First: Glenn's a big boy, and can speak for himself, and I believe when he said I am " the best girl in the world". I have never done meth, nor have any desire to. I don't think he's laughing at me either, and your insults are only making ME laugh. YOU are the one's who need to get a life. And you've insulted Glenn too with the "triangular mouth" comments! PEACE DUDES!!!
    PS: Don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful!!!

  38. Oh fuck, Glenn's gonna be pissed if he sees that somebody said he has a triangle shaped mouth!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Where do you guys find this shit?
    Pretty funny, well actually quite sad that this woman still uses this as her claim to fame.
    Does she really think Glenn Danzig who is a pretty reclusive fucking guy is actually going to see her video message to him? And better yet do you think he gives a flying fuck!?
    But Glenn is getting soft as I saw him on Saturday night for the Affliction $5 Christmas Concert, and he even said something to the effect of "I know this might make me sound soft but I don't give a fuck...Merry Christmas"!
    But he was fucking great nonetheless, although his set got cut short since he was the headliner and didn't hit the stage with good ole' Tommy Victor, he did play allot of cuts from the 1st 3 records which made for a great night!

    Since your on the subject, I have always wondered whatever happened to Rebecca Mullen, the girl from the "Her Black Wings" video, I was in love with her when I was a teen and rubbed one out to that video at least once! HA HA!

    She was in tons of rock videos, Slaughter "Up All Night" etc...

    Now THATS a rock video babe!

  42. Thank you for your website post. Brown and I happen to be saving to get a new guide on this issue and your short article has made us to save all of our money. Your notions really responded to all our problems. In fact, above what we had recognized ahead of the time we came across your great blog. I no longer nurture doubts and a troubled mind because you totally attended to the needs in this article. Thanks

  43. You guys are just fucking mean. I just caught her on a rerun of Tosh.0. I think she said she was in her mid 50s. Aside from what seems to be prosthetic fangs that make her front teeth look busted and yellow, and some really ugly tattoos(I'm not a fan of tattoos anyway), I think she looks pretty damned good. She certainly keeps herself in shape. Granted, her personality and interests might be a little off-center. But hey, take a listen to any of the moron celebrities on late-night talk shows, at least she's amusing. As far as a hundred year old video being her claim to fame. At least she has a claim to fame, that twenty five years later people remember her. I'm guessing that most of you guys on here are about 40 give or take. I just wonder what your wives or girlfriends look like. Or what they'll look like when they're 55. Or better yet, what you guys actually look like at 40, or even 55.

  45. I went to junior H.S. with Erika B. She was my friend and my brother Chance's girlfriend from Infected and Cheap Sex. She was really cool, had many friends and I've ran into her through the years and always thought she was quite beautiful with a raunchy look, cat eyes and a cute petite frame. She was Glenn's girlfriend for quite awhile. Those who knew her loved her.
