In 1996, Danzig released Blackacidevil on Hollywood Records, a label owned by The Walt Disney company. Within weeks of signing, there were already complications:

"Three weeks into our deal, Roy Disney found out we were signed to his label. They promised me my own label. Michael Eisner himself said, "You're going to be totally autonomous and no one is going to screw with you." It was the biggest load of bullshit. Three weeks in he pulled the plug on us when he saw this Tower Pulse! cartoon where me and Eisner are shaking hands and Mickey Mouse has all these 666's on his head and upside down crosses and people on rides burning and shit. People started protesting, sending e-mail and faxes that we were on the label. So we got out of there" - Glenn Danzig
