In the past, one primary source of crowd-drenching bodily fluids would have been the massive and disturbing penis of former lead singer Oderus Urungus, but the Gwar leader was sent off viking-funeral-style earlier this year after his earthly analog, Dave Brockie, died of an accidental heroin overdose at the age of 50.

Any long-time Gwar fan will tell you to wear a white shirt when you go see the group, so as to wear your battle scars with pride:
