Gwar name ideaRichmond, Virginia is where the cave system of the band Gwar is, dealing in shock rock, thrash metal and comedy rock. This relatively successful band (twice nominated for a Grammy Award) is best known for its use of wild, science fiction-inspired costumes, raunchy or obscene lyrics and sexual stage acts that don't leave much to the imagination. Clearly a concert ticket is plenty bang for your buck.

Because of their monstrous appearance the band members felt an instinctive attraction for the name GWAARGGGH!!!, after the sounds that accompany many horror films. They wisely gave it some more thought and conceded gruntingly that Gwar was a better option.

Active: 1984-heden, USA
