This is far too awesome to ignore.
The A.V. Club’s A.V. Undercover Series has produced some pretty interesting covers, but I don’t know if any are as entertaining as GWAR covering Kansas’ “Carry on My Wayward Son”. Last week’s final installment has the group in full costume (of course) singing what I suspect are not the actual lyrics, and turning the classic 70s riffs into full on metal. The only part more entertaining than the performance itself is Oderus Urungus’ explanation of the band’s relationship to the song – brilliant.
Ordinarily, any post that has to do with a cover is followed by the original song so everyone can compare one version to the other, but let’s face it; a GWAR video would be far more fun to watch than a live clip of Kansas. Here’s “Sick of You”.
