Gwar’s really pushing it. The band’s been slapping its name and logo on everything and anything as of late, and Gwar’s shamelessness is reaching epic new heights. Now, there’s Gwar cigars. Or Cigwars. Give me a break, man. Kiss is starting to get jealous of how many products Gwar’s got for sale. What’s next, Gwar […]

OK, now, I can sort of understand little baby bands crowdfunding their demos and shit like that. But Rob Zombie is a fucking wealthy motherfucker. What’s he gotta crowdfund for? He just sold his mansion in Connecticut for a couple of bills. What the hell, man? Dude’s got loot. If he wants to make a […]

Dave Brockie’s been dead less than a month, and already, there’s a new Gwar product out on the market for you to spend your dollars on.

Lars' booze ad

That’s right, folks. Diminutive drummer Lars Ulrich is lending his likeness to a pair of Danish ad campaigns, designed to sell Carlsberg and Gammel Dansk.

Dying Fetus Putting Out Ugly Holiday Sweater

Lamazing!

I wish this trend would cease. I mean, I get that bands need to make money, and that the only real way to do it is through merch. But these ugly holiday sweaters…they’re just so lame. But Dying Fetus today released one that’s sort of amazing. It’s still lame, but…it says “Kill Your Mother, Rape […]

Psychostick Crowdfunding For Next LP

Psychostick

Full disclosure: I am no fan of Psychostick. I had the skateboard as a kid, but can’t appreciate the band named after it because they’re “comedy rock.” Like Spinal Tap, I guess. But Spinal Tap was more than just music. They’re just a band trying to be outrageous and goofy. Please. Now, Psychostick have become […]
