GWAR has consistently been one of the best things in the universe since the formation of the group.

frepnog: Gunny Highway: Their early albums have an awesome punk sound (I dont know if you like punk) and are great.

i have been a GWAR fan, since, well, since GWAR became a thing.  I wouldn't call anything they ever did "punk".  Their early records were more a "we don't really know how to play our instruments" kind of sound that evolved into a sort of metal.

GOR GOR!


Once you get past the bullshiat posturing and angst, isn't "we don't really know how to play our instruments" kind of what punk really was?

Car_Ramrod: I saw GWAR at Riot Fest last month. Idunno, it was kinda fun for about 2 songs, just to laugh at the absurdity, but it got old fast. I'll admit I'm not their target audience (I don't care for heavy metal in the slightest), but it just seemed an entire show of what teenagers think will "offend the masses".

I would like to see anyone questioning GWAR's talent to try playing a heavy metal guitar solo while wearing a 7-foot foam rubber space monster costume.

Fair enough.  The Death Piggy album I heard had a punk sound but maybe it is more of that "we dont really know" thing again.

/I really like that "dont know" sound.

Don't blame us for Dave Mathews, he's more of a Charlotsville thing.

In any case. GWAR's sound is best described as belonging to the DC Hardcore scene. After the initial push of the NY and london punk sound was done but people were still pissed, Punk got meaner and faster.

GWAR's contribution to all that was to theatricly skewer the effigies of a pop/political culture gone mad.

the shows are social commentary.

if you don't get that, then that is why you dont get GWAR.
and I'm not saying all that directly to you Gunny, I'm just using your comment as a spring board.

Dingleberry Dickwad: Meh. I haven't had a chance to listen to the cover yet since I'm at work but I've only ever liked one GWAR song I've heard over the years, and their schtick has gotten somewhat stale seeing as how they've been doing it at least since the 90s when I first heard of them, quite possibly longer. It can be cool in small doses but just not my thing.


yeah, it is more of a live thing.  the records are kinda an afterthought really, like KISS in the 70's.
