GWAR Covers Pet Shop Boys And Jim Carroll For The A.V. Club!

The mighty GWAR recently returned to The A.V. Club with their new lineup, and as they did twice before, they put their own spin on a classic cover! Previously GWAR covered Kansas’ “Carry On Wayward Son,” and Billy Ocean’s “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car,” but they wanted to do something extra special this time around. They decided to tackle Pet Shop Boys’ 1984 hit “West End Girls,” but they didn’t just leave it at that! They transitioned into Jim Carroll’s classic “People Who Died,” and it is a fitting tribute to fallen heroes, such as Oderus Urungus, Dimebag Darrell and more! Take a look at the lyrics on The A.V. Club website, and it becomes even more powerful! Enjoy the new “cover” clip below, and support them on the road today!
