Information of GWAR
Since 1984, satirical heavy metal band GWAR has been creating humorous and obscene music that pokes fun at everything from celebrities to current events. While they may be known for creating albums like Scumdog of the Universe, Carnival of Chaos, Violence Has Arrived, and Beyond Hell, GWAR is arguably best known for their elaborate and often controversial and offensive live shows. While on stage members Dave Brockie, Mike Derks, Brad Roberts, Jamison Land, and Brent Purgason dress in costumes inspired by horror and science fiction movies, and the stage is always full of strange and interesting props that communicate themes that are considered taboo by normal standards. No subject is off limits to GWAR, and they have been known to sing satirical songs about everyone from Adolph Hitler to Marilyn Manson. Through the years it has often been debated if the name GWAR is actually an acronym for something, but members insist it only means "Gwaaaarrrrrghhhhllllgh!"
