Gwar Take Super Bowl Halftime Show Petition To Another Level

09/27/2013
.
Gwar have taken a fan petition to have the band perform during the halftime show at next year's Super Bowl by endorsing the move and offering to actually take the field as an NFL team.

The band's frontthing Oderus had these thoughts about the petition, "It has long been the joy of Gwar to submit the human race to any number of hideous tortures, and I can't think of anything more horrible than you having to watch acts like The Black-Eyed Peas and Bruno Mars perform.

"So the temptation to ignore this is great! But then you start thinking about all of the people that who have never experienced Gwar before, and will be forced to do so if we do get the gig, well, at that point my colossal mega-ego kicks in and I am all over it."

He then takes things to another level, "I really don't think we should be limited to playing the halftime show...I am offering Gwar as an actual team that could complete in the NFL. Think of the titanic struggle involved as the NFL submits their best players, hell, we could play against all the teams at once and still emerge victorious.

"For too long has the NFL ignored the obvious fact that the players should be naked, blind-folded and armed with battle axes, that land mines should litter the field and whalers should hurl harpoons randomly from the stands.

"Gwar is throwing our entire cosmic weight (and we are fairly hefty) behind this petition, and command all of our followers, their families, and indeed anybody who has ever existed to sign this f**king thing, and in fact for those who have already signed it to create multiple fake email addresses and sign it again!"

While fans hold out hope for a Gwarified Super Bowl (and who wouldn't?), some will be able catch the band in all their gory-glory this Christmas season as the group have announced three dates for the holidays in addition to their previously announced Madness at the Core of Time fall tour with Whitechapel, Iron Reagan and Band of Orcs.

The holiday dates will be kick off on December 27th in New York City at Irving Plaza, followed by a December 28th show in New Haven, CT at Toad's Place and concluding on December 29th in Richmond, VA at The National.

The Madness at the Core of Time tour is set to kick off next Wednesday (October 2nd) in Columbus, Ohio and will wrap up on November 17th in Washington D.C.
