Singled Out: Gwar

(antiMusic) Welcome to Singled Out! where we ask artists to tell us the inside story of their latest single. Today Gwar's Beefcake the Mighty gives us the story behind "Let Us Stay," off the band's new album "Lust in Space," which hits stores next week! Now here is the story, enjoy!

It was week 12 in the rehearsal chamber of our Antarctican stronghold, and we hadn't played a single note. For 3 months we did nothing but celebrate the epic record we hadn't written yet with feasts and orgies that would shame Caligula. As a matter of fact I do believe him saying how ashamed he was at some point during the debauchery. Anyway it was a wonderful party and everyone had a bang up time! Oh, wait. This is about the song. I digress...

At some point in the festivities, our manager Sleazy (Killjoy, as I call him) turned on the lights and kicked everyone but GWAR out. Apparently the party was over. Apparently we were grossly overbudget and months behind schedule on the record we hadn't even started. As our guests were given their hats and coats and ushered out of the top tower window, Oderus protested to Sleazy saying "let them stay!" Balsac misheard this and started chanting "let us slay" and the rest of us followed suit. At some point Flattus Maximus woke up and grabbed a guitar from his guitar pile. He wrote the music to "Let Us Slay" note for note before passing out face down in an inflatable kiddie pool of celebrity vomit. Fortunately we were recording everything. Oderus garbled something incoherently, which we later found that if played backwards, were lyrics that perfectly matched up to the song! Ta Dah! Hit song. So you can see, the writing process with GWAR is a very taxing and lengthy process, calling on every shred of our talent and intellect.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album - right here!
