Gwar Songs Ranked

Gwar, often stylized in all caps as GWAR, is an American heavy metal band formed in Richmond, Virginia in 1984, composed of and operated by a frequently rotating line-up of musicians, artists, and filmmakers collectively known as Slave Pit Inc. Following the death of frontman and lead singer Dave Brockie in 2014, the group has continued without any of its founding members. Since its formation, Gwar has released thirteen studio albums, two live albums, and numerous singles among other recordings, and has sold over 820,000 records in the United States. Fueled largely by the controversies surrounding their concerts, Gwar experienced brief mainstream notoriety during the first half of the 1990s, receiving regular airplay on MTV as well as frequent in-character guest appearances on daytime talk shows, satirizing the topics of censorship and media violence. Though the band’s mainstream popularity declined by the end of the 1990s, Gwar has retained a dedicated cult following. The band’s extensive videography consists of both live recordings and long-form feature films, most notably 1992’s Phallus in Wonderland, which earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Long Form Music Video. Outside of music and video, Gwar has expanded its franchise into comic books, trading cards, a board game, signature beers, barbecue sauces, and e-liquids. Here are all of Gwar’s songs ranked.

10. Schools Out (Beyond Hell, 2006)

“I swear every cover GWAR does, they kill. Get into my car(Billy Ocean) and Carry on my wayward son(Kansas) are some of the best covers i’ve ever heard. And funny as hell.”

9. Slaughterama (Scumdogs of the Universe, 1990)

“Has always been one of my favorite metal albums, and this re-release did not disappoint. The bass levels were brought up, as well as cleaned up vocals and a slightly different track order. I really enjoyed hearing the bass thump louder on all the tracks, but Slaughterama sounded so awesome.”

8. War Party (War Party, 2004)

“These guys are talented musicians! They have the skills necesary to create some sophisticated Metal and the ear for great melodic hooks. Musically I would compare it to Motorhead, Celtic Frost, Judas Priest (minus the wailing), and the more brutal side of the Misfits”

7. Immortal Corruptor (Violence Has Arrived, 2001)

“Violence Has Arrived is billed as Gwar’s return to form, but that’s not entirely valid. The metal presented here doesn’t feel much like Scumdogs or America at all; instead, it’s a lot cleaner and self-controlled, staying within its musical boundaries.”

6. Metal Metal Land (Lust in Space, 2009)

“Nothing gets my day started better than slipping this album in and blasting Metal Metal Land. Love this album. It’s funny and technically better than anything they’ve done.”

5. Let Us Slay (Lust in Space, 2009)

“One can love them or hate them, but it’s hard to miss the fact, that their songs are very diverse and are made up of one hundred different riffs and hooks that end up in a weird choruses etc. I mean, that is exactly what I call interesting music. Just trying to analyze what I’ve just listened to on a different level.” is one of the best songs Gwar has released. “

4. Saddam a Go-Go (This Toilet Earth, 1994)

“This was the first song I’ve ever heard from Gwar, from being featured on Beavis and Butthead back in the day. This is what started it off for me, and is just an all-around generally awesome song from Gwar. Even with all of their new stuff, this is definitely completely different than most of their songs, getting away from punk and moving more into thrash, no less also having a brass section in the band as well.”

3. Gor-Gor (America Must Be Destroyed, 1992)

“‘Gor Gor’ introduces you to one of the great characters in GWAR history, Gor Gor. He is a gigantic dinosaur creature and the song details his antics. The intro is pretty grating and features a just-out-of-tune guitar playing a lead line before the song busts into fast-paced mode. Some of the riffs on this album are simply killer, and this song is a shining example of that.”

2. Sick of You (Scumdogs of the Universe, 1990)

“The third track is a GWAR classic and was their live closer for most of their career. ‘Sick of You’ is pretty much just a hard rock anthem. The chorus is huge and catchy though, and it’s one of the most enjoyable songs on offer here.”

1. Bring Back the Bomb (War Party, 2004)

“A few other of the more satiating moments on tap, here, include the fiery, crunchy, grinding guitar hooks, and memorable vocal patterns (including a chant-worthy chorus of “die, human, die!”) in “Bring Back The Bomb” A great way to open an album. NO intro, GWAR just go right into a great heavy song, possibly the heaviest song on the album.”;
