Sign the Petition to Let Gwar Play the 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show
Tired of seeing pop stars and out-of-date performers during the Super Bowl Half Time Show? Well Buzzhead we have an opportunity to change all that. There is currently a petition floating around the web to let heavy metal band Gwar perform during the 2015 halftime show, and even if you’re not a fan of the band or haven’t even heard of them, it only takes one look at the group to realize that any live show these guys are at has to be a totally mind blowing experience.
The petition, at the time this post was published, had 41,000 signatures and needs only 9,000 more so be sure you do your part to spice up the Super Bowl halftime show.
And it only get better, the band has officially endorsed the petition even going as far to say that they would put a team on the field if they had to. Leader of the band Oderus Urungus released an lengthy statement acknowledging the petition which you can read right here.
“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.”
“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!”
In other news, Gwar is preparing to hit the road as part of the “Madness at the Core of Time” Tour alongside Whitechapel, Iron Reagan and Band of Orcs in support of their brand new album, Battle Maximus with three dates here in the Lone Star State; 10-24 in Houston, 10-25 in Fort Worth and 10-26 in Austin.
