GWAR Promo Still B

For the fourth year in a row (the most by any artist human, Scumdog or otherwise), your masters GWAR returned to The A.V. Club to take part in the A.V. Undercover Series. The A.V. Undercover Series features artists covering other artists’ music. GWAR’s first offering tackled the Kansas classic, “Carry On Wayward Son” – which was voted favorite performance of the year, This, of course, came as no surprise to GWAR who consider themselves the greatest rock performers on this or any other planet in history. After a year of celebrating the victory, the group returned to defend the crown with its unique spin on Billy Ocean’s “Get Out of My Dreams, Get Into My Car.”  What happened for their third appearance?  The band returned and went New Wave with their version of Pet Shop Boy’s “West End Girls” which segued into a re-worked version of Jim Carol’s “People Who Died”, paying tribute to fallen GWAR members and friends of the band.  And of course, they won performance of the year again.  (Did you think they wouldn’t?)

By this point, people may be thinking, well GWAR wins every year, so why do they keep coming back?  Well it’s because they are the rulers of the universe and they are the A.V. Club three-time champions.  How did they top themselves this time?  Well the band dug deep into their cassette collection and pulled out Cyndi Lauper’s Greatest Hits.  Once they came across “She-Bop” and learned that it was a song about masturbation, which is a habit near and dear to their hearts, they decided this is the song they must play to defend their “Undercover” title for an unprecedented fourth time!  So without any more fanfare here it is, the orgasm inducing GWAR rendition of “She-Bop” with a little surprise at the end.  Watch the video HERE.  Then remember to vote early and often for GWAR because the Scumdogs command you to do so!

After hearing that the A.V. Club was inviting GWAR back for a fourth time, Pustulus admits, “I think I threw up in my mouth a little bit.”

A.V. Club VP/Editor in Chief Josh Modell had the following to say about GWAR’s fourth visit:

“Every year we hope GWAR will forget where our studio is so that they won’t crush us and the competition. But every year they manage to find us and breathe horrible new life into an old classic. We submit, we submit.”

GWAR are currently in the midst of their 30th anniversary tour as they continue to wreak havoc across North America.  The show stops tomorrow in Tempe, AZ and runs through November 28th in Orlando, FL.  A complete list of dates can be found below.
