Gwar Give Sarah Palin the Disembowelment Treatment — Video
The satirical B-movie theatrics of Gwar have made the intergalactic shock rockers a band you have to see at least once. Try and name another band where you leave covered in bile? You can’t. Eviscerating public figures has always been a part of the Gwar stage show, and on the band’s current tour Republican politician Sarah Palin became an effigy.
“They pretty much suggest themselves,” frontman Oderus Urungus said in a recent interview on how they pick their famous victims. Barack Obama, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Hillary Clinton have also been targets on recent tours. “They are the most reprehensible characters, and they fulfill no function that I see whatsoever except a bunch of bulls— like taking their phony baloney salaries and wasting tons of time.”
He continued, “Every time I read anything about the way they work and what life is like for a politician, and our president, or the people that are in power, I’m like, ‘Oh my god, it’s horrible.’ So yeah, they’ve always been a favorite target of Gwar’s and you can tell that the audience loves it, as well. Politicians are hated, but for some reason we support their f—ing government. So, I guess they’re getting over on us pretty good.”
Gwar are on tour until the end of the world.
