Long ago, the beings who would become the rock band GWAR were part of an elite fighting force, the Scumdogs of the Universe. For eons, they served as thralls to a supreme being known only as the Master.

Say what you will about their Satanic-looking masks, gnarly R-rated-Jim-Henson-warrior outfits, and strapped-on penis appendages — no band has ever made monster metal like Gwar.

The band's extensive videography consists of both live recordings and long-form feature films, most notably 's Phallus in Wonderland , which earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Long Form Music Video.
