One of the greatest live acts you will ever see. There are few experiences in this world that are anything as unique as a GWAR show.

"Masters of Shock Rock??"

They are funny though, with the crazy costumes & everything. It borders between shock rock & Weird Al style fun, which is why it is no doubt judged to be nauseating by the uber-serious crowd.

oh yeah, for sure Cheesers. But not "Masters of Shock Rock" by any means

"Try Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Arthur Brown or Alice Cooper"

Ralph you're not saying GWAR is better than Screamin' Jay Hawkins? I'll admit they're fun but I still think "I Put a Spell on You" is funner to listen to than GWAR

It's comparing apples to oranges.

Saw them in Lexington on Sat. nite. Crazy stage show, they must be well booked in October of every year. Amazing how they can play with all the costumes (the 3 guys that play instruments, one just sings/snarls).

I'm a devout fan of shock rock and theatrics in rock shows, and have utmost respect for the pioneers and those who even had a vision of bringing theater to the rock scene before anyone ever did. And so, I must also admit that GWAR is a key element of shock rock history because they have endured the test of time, just as Alice Cooper, and even Arthur Brown (HoF please!!!). They have a cult following and are not very well acknowledged in many cases, but they do deserve a spot in the hall of fame for their commitment to bringing the world of rock with music and entertainment through sense and emotion!

RIEP - David Brockie. Saw them at Buster's in Lexington about 2 or 3 years ago. Very entertaining show. He was 50 years old.
