GWAR is a heavy metal band that has been around since the mid 80s. They are most known for their outlandish outfits and insane stage shows. They have gone through MANY band members over the years, but for the most part, the characters that are portrayed have stayed the same.
According to the GWAR mythos, GWAR was created over 100 billion years ago by the Master of All Reality. An ultra-elite group of warriors gathered from the lowest dregs of filth, the group raped and pillaged their way across the universe and finally arrived on Earth. Once on Earth they killed the dinosaurs, created Stonehenge to use as a croquet court, and sunk Atlantis. Displeased by their actions, the Master banished GWAR to Antarctica, where they lay entombed in ice for millions of years, until a hole in the ozone layer (caused by excessive use of hair spray by poofy-haired 1980s rock stars) released them from their icy prison in 1985. Free to roam the Earth once more, GWAR returned to their goal of world domination-this time as a rock band. Their most recent adventures have involved getting killed, and taking over Hell. (Beyond Hell), then raising a zombie army to take over Earth (Bloody Pit of Horror).
Here's one of my favorite songs by them, Penguin Attack. Also, since it's a live video, it will give you a taste of their shows....As for the content. Well, the above paragraph should clue you in a bit on what's in store.
Next is a cover they did a few years ago of Alice Cooper's School's Out. This video, like most of their material, makes me lol every time I see it.
Next is an obviously dated video, Fucking An Animal. The quality might be a bit low, but it's still an hilarious video.
And lastly, here is Zombies, March! from their latest album, Bloody Pit Of Horror.
