My very good friend, confidant, music mentor, and fellow Gwar admirer, the one and only Mr. Doug Nilsen, stumbled upon quite the find on YouTube last week. A find so great that it prompted him to submit a request to Matt Horn’s blog for a post related to the find. Now, for your viewing pleasure (and so you can experience the greatness of Gwar), please check out Gwar’s cover of the Kansas classic “Carry On Wayward Son”.
If you watched this video and for some reason were disturbed or offended, don’t take it to heart, that is Gwar’s goal. And remember – Carry on, my wayward, unemployed son.. get off the couch and get a job!!!!
Ok, so Oderus Urungus forgot a few of the lyrics… and maybe added a few new lyrics into the mix, but this rendition clearly gets a 9.5 out of 10 for its genius and ridiculousness. And also for calling out all the bands that ever decided to bail out on actually picking a band name and instead settling on a geographical location as a substitute.
The series of videos from A.V. Undercover are all pretty good. The concept: 25 Bands, 25 Covers. One Small, Round Room. I urge you to check out more than Gwar’s excellent contribution.
