GWAR cover “If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It),” kill Trump & Hillary in new video
GWAR have appeared (and been covered on) AV Club's 'Undercover' series more than once, and in honor of Election Day, they returned for their fifth time. They take on AC/DC's "If You Want Blood (You've Got it)" -- it's hard to believe it took GWAR this long to do that song -- after an intro of Boston's "Foreplay." Both Trump and Hillary join GWAR on stage, and things play out pretty similarly to the way they did at Riot Fest Chicago recently. Without giving too much away, if you do want blood, you've indeed got it.
GWAR also shared the following:
Fresh off their amazing appearance on the “Howard Stern Wrap Up Show” where they performed the Electric Comicbook (Howard Stern’s Middle School Band) classic “Silver Nickels, Golden Dimes”, GWAR has once again returned to The AV Club to take part in their “Undercover Series”.
This marks GWAR’s record-breaking 5th appearance at The AV Club, where for (four) years running they won the title of best cover of the year. This of course was accomplished with their covers of Kansas, Billy Ocean, Pet Shop Boys and Cyndi Lauper classics. This year the Intergalactic Overlords plan on taking the championship for the fifth time!
On this particular visit, GWAR gets started with a little bit of “Foreplay” from Boston, before getting political with their take on AC/DC’s “If You Want Blood.” And since today is Election Day, and we are all tired of hearing about it, your Lords and Masters invited Trump and Clinton to duke it out in person, and we are sure the long suffering American public will be pleased with the outcome! Watch GWAR lay waste to the AV Club yet again!
Following this triumph, GWAR will return to their Antarctic Fortress for the winter as they work on their new album and first release featuring the Berserker Blothar. More details will be made available soon. Stay tuned Human Scum!
One more thing, don’t fret Bohabs! GWAR would not leave you without something special for Record Store Day this year. That’s right, on Record Store Day (11/25/17) AKA Black Friday, GWAR will release a limited edition picture disc called “Black Friday” featuring their covers of Billy Ocean’s “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car” and “West End Girls” from The Pet Shop Boys. “Get outta My Dream’s Get Into My Car” will be on Side A (Oderus). This was Dave Brockie AKA Oderus Urungus’ final recording with GWAR. Side B (Blothar) “West End Girls” was the first recording by GWAR featuring new singer Blothar.
Pictures of that Riot Fest set are in the gallery above.
