Murderdolls is an American rock band formed in 2002. The band line-up consists of Wednesday 13, Joey Jordison, Acey Slade, Eric Griffin and Ben Graves (Tripp Eisen of former Static-x fame was also in the band for a time, we'll get to that in a bit).
Some consider the Murderdolls history to go back as far as 1994 to a Des Moines, Iowa based band Joey Jordison played in, named The Rejects, which was fronted by vocalist Dizzy Draztik. The sound of the band was somewhat comparable to what the Murderdolls would later develop, minus the horror themed lyrics.
The Rejects split up as Jordison's "other band" Slipknot were signed to a major label.
Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls is the debut album of rock band Murderdolls released in 2002.
While a member of Static-X, Eisen was arrested on February 10, 2005 on a felony "crimes against children" charge in Orange County, California for having sexual intercourse with an underage girl. He was released on bail after only a few hours in custody. Just two weeks later, on February 24, 2005, Eisen was arrested again in California by New Jersey detectives for the alleged kidnapping and sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl from Sayreville, New Jersey. New Jersey State Police alleged that Eisen posed as his own impersonator on the Internet and lured the girl starting in October 2004 and culminating with consensual sex on January 7, 2005.
On June 24, 2005, Eisen pleaded guilty to the February 10 California charges of having sex with a minor and was sentenced to a year in California prison. After spending late February to late September 2005 in California prison, Eisen was released and due for an October 7, 2005 arraignment in New Jersey on the February 24 charges.
Murderdolls performed two tracks, "197666" and "Dead In Hollywood", on the WB show, Dawson's Creek.
Watch closely for a short cameo appearance by Marilyn Manson, Jordison also appeared briefly in the 'Tainted Love' video.
