Gwar really got screwed when Live Earth was putting bands on every continentwho better to represent his native Antarctica than frontmonster Oderus Urungus? (Not to mention his well-calloused phallus, which has been poking fun at trash thrashand poking the front row at the Gwar show, toofor almost 25 years.) I had a whole performance-art piece where I was gonna fuck Stings face. Fuck it right off, he said at the time. As an artist, I feel I was denied my First Amendment rights, whatever they are, because I was prevented from fucking Stings dead head. But if the Beatles couldnt even pass off the butcher cover, what hope for planetwide acceptance did these goo-spewing, gore-porn-y shred-rockers have? True art is never understood in its own time, particularly when its this sticky. Which is probably why Gwar lost both its Grammy nominations so farcant a scumdog get a bone?
