These days, a good nu-metal throwback isn't so hard to find – usually, they're playing live in some far-flung dive bar, located in West Jesus-ville, Any State USA. Much harder to pin down is said nu-metal band rocking an awesome cover... of Billy Ocean. Sure, we've all been pining away at the opportunity to get this late '90s screamerific sub-genre out of our dreams and into our cars (presumably the stereo portion of the vehicle and not, like, the backseat.) The only difference is, GWAR actually made it happen. With a recent viral resurgence of the satirical metal darlings by way of covering "Get Out of My Dreams (And Into My Car)," this cheerful band of horrific bros are poised to pick up where Ozzfest left off – that is, with latex murder-themed costumes, fake blood packets galore and a definite penchant for core-shaking riffs. GWAR, we've got your number: now hop in, we're going for a spin. WIN FREE TICKETS HERE!
