You know, I'm getting pretty sick of this misuse of "raging alcoholic" Its bullshiat in a fark thread.

Alcoholics drink beer. Raging alcoholics drink distilled beverages. Vodak usually. Link takes you to the best in the farking world.

MrJesus: Meh. GWAR is okay.

I'm a RAWG fan, myself.

Those X-COPS guys are pretty hip, too.

I saw the X-COPS open for GWAR once. I don't know how those two bands can stand each other.

I've seen Gwar many, many times,including the very last show at the original 9:30 Club in DC with the Meatmen. Too damn good. They used to just be fun, but at some point over the years they actually got good at playing music too.

WhiskeySticks: Cerebral Knievel: GWAR, Richmond Virginia's greatest culteral export, and gift to the world in the past forty years.

Along with Alabama Thunder Pussy and Municipal Waste.

Finally seeing GWAR this Saturday.

I'm sorry to be a Grammar Nazi here, but isn't Thunderpussy one word, not two?

/ I always assumed they were actually from Alabama...

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.


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?

I saw one of their shows in December of 2008 and it was really weird.  The whole thing was a mockup of the 2008 election seasons, with the candidates wrestling each other instead of having a vote.  The final battle came down to Hillary Clinton vs. John McCain, and McCain won.  Note that I said December above.  You know, well after the election.  I guess they just didn't want to rewrite it because Obama's head was rigged to pop off like a rockem sockem robot, but McCain's wasn't?

/ Yes, I am the nerd who expects historical accuracy from a GWAR show.  What of it?

AwfulJackass: Their cover of Carry On My Wayward Son was good too.


Gwar covers Ween. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mA4220YqaM

They also play "Dont Laugh, I Love You" after a live track on an EP.

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