This weeks band is…GWAR!
Gwar is best known for their elaborate sci-fi/horror film inspired costumes; raunchy, obscene, politically incorrect lyrics; and graphic stage performances, which consist of humorous re-enactments of scatology, sadomasochism, necrophilia, pedophilia, paraphilia, bestiality, pagan rituals, satanism or devil worship, executions, battle, torture, malice, rape and physical abuse, racism, anti-Christian messages, suicide, illegal drug use, alcohol abuse, and other controversial violent, political and moral taboo themes.
There are a couple different stories as to how GWAR came into being, but I choose to believe the one where they started off as a band named Death Piggy, had some costumes laying around for a movie they were making in college, wore the costumes while playing in Death Piggy at a school event, some one said, “God! What an Awful Racket” and GWAR was born.
What other band has a giant worm that eats people, a chick that shots lightning, the ability to pseudo-rape their fans to death and their own slave pit? None that’s who.
So I leave you now in the immortal words of GWAR…”Fish fuck baby, I’m gonna fuck you with a fish!”
