I’ve been to many shows over my 29 years, but rarely have I worried that they would hook the blood machine up to the lead singer’s infected appendage.
Such is life at a GWAR show. An experience all should have once, and from a safe distance away from the fake blood that is spewed onto the front of the crowd.
If you can remember that it’s a joke as they chop off the heads of everyone from Hitler to Jesus, then you can appreciate it for the stage show that it is.
I urge you to see them once in your life, unless the sight of blood…or Kool-Aid, makes you squeamish. In the meantime, here’s an easier to digest video of GWAR, doing a cover of Kansas for AV Club.
