A to Z Challenge: G is for Gwar

Band:  Gwar
Genre:  Thrash Metal, Heavy Metal

Yo.  Who doesn't like a band that dresses up?  The correct answer is nobody.  Nobody can hate a band that dresses up and pulls it off.  (Slipknot, Mushroomhead, and the like.)

You know who does a fantastic job at the whole masked band thing?  Gwar.

Gwar may have started out taking things seriously, but I kinda doubt it.  With their costumes, elaborate backstories, and horrific stage show Gwar has managed to capture the hearts of many Metal fans.

I mean really though, this is just a magical thing to witness.  Their interviews are always gold cause they're just plain funny.  Even if you hate the music you should at least check out some of their interviews and things like that.

But for real, their stage show is the stuff of nightmares.  They kill people, they spray blood everywhere, they are really crass, and they kill people.  I 100% recommend checking it out, but you've been warned.

Happy Friday and G day everybody, continue to enjoy the A to Z!


  1. I'm going to have to catch up on these when I'm home (don't have Youtube access at work and trying to use my cellphone less at my desk). This is a theme I can get behind! :D

    1. Thanks! I'm glad you like the idea, it's something I enjoy just a little bit.

  2. They kind of look like something out of World of Warcraft!

    1. I hadn't thought of that, but they really do, don't they?

      Maybe they should ask Gwar to guest in the Warcraft movie that's coming out, haha

  3. I've gotta admit, the description you gave me earlier really didn't do this justice. And now I can't unsee it, lol. Still, variety is the spice of life and all that, right?

    1. It's truly a work of art, isn't it.
