What began as a joke in the late 1980s, has become a band with more longevity than anyone could have ever imagined. Gwar
came about when a band called Death Piggy decided to create a fictitious band that would open for them at concerts. The fake
band, originally called Gwaaarrrggjjllgh, was supposedly from Antarctica and dressed in creature costumes, sacrificing made-up
animals. While the members of Death Piggy got a kick out of passing their fake band off as a real opening act, the joke was
on them. Fans started coming to concerts just to see Gwaaarrrgghhllgh, and then leaving before Death Piggy went on. The band
decided to phase out Death Piggy and commit to Gwar (the shortened name) full-time. They produced a number of EPs and albums,
with their most popular album being Scumdogs of the Universe that was released in the early 90s. The album helped the band
solidify their place in American heavy metal music and earn a record deal with Metal Blade Records. Today, the band continues
to tour with their outrageous live shows, and create new music for their loyal fans! Buy your Gwar

a host of other awards that have celebrated their quirkiness. With almost thirty years of producing envelope-pushing music
and live performances, the band is still wowing crowds around the world, and gaining new fans. One of their most popular characters-Flattus
Maximus-was retired in 2011 when guitarist Cory Smoot died suddenly. The band released their latest single, and last featuring
Smoot in December of 2011 on the cover of the Dayglo Abortions song "Isn't This Disgusting." But despite tragedy, the band
has been able to overcome numerous obstacles and bring their diehard fans the deliciously twisted live performances they buy
