According to debatable folklore, Earth’s only extra-terrestrial rock band, GWAR, is made up of an elite group of chaos warriors who were banished to this planet and placed in an ageless coma under the ice of Antarctica.  However, millions of years later, pollution – and specifically that resulting from the over-use of aerosol hairspray during the 80’s hair metal era of rock – caused the  band to de-thaw.  As they were melting, the band was approached by a powerful music mogul and underworld boss named Sleazy P. Martini, who took the creatures to the USA, got them addicted to crack, gave them electric guitars, and taught them how to play the sickest, heaviest metal of all time.


Oderus Urungus (aka Dave Brockie) was the “leader” of GWAR since 1984, and led the band to release twelve studio albums, among many other releases.  GWAR has been a band known for its live presence and ability to douse the audience in all types of “bodily fluids.”  

Just last year there was a big push (including a popular online petition) for GWAR to play the Superbowl, and Oderus Urungus’s interview with LA WEEKLY describing their ideal Superbowl show was such a great depiction of who exactly GWAR was – totally epic!  And such a silly read! 

GWAR without Oderus Urungus will never be the same!  rip.
