While the band has been something that the people of Earth have been aware of for twenty five years, the origins and history of the band GWAR goes back over 43 million years to when their members were denizens of the planet Scumdogia. Eventually they found their way to Antarctica where they laid buried beneath tons of snow and ice for many, many years until they were unfortunately unleashed upon our modern day society by now manager Sleazy P.
