GWAR Covering Cyndi Lauper Is the Weirdest Thing You’ll See All Day

The metal band’s version of “She Bop” is terrifyingly good. 

Short story: GWAR covered Cyndi Lauper’s “She Bop,” and it’s amazing.

Long story: GWAR covered Cyndi Lauper’s “She Bop” for The Onion’s A.V. Club, and it’s amazing.

While trying to process this you might be wondering why a band that’s known for dressing up in elaborate rubber monster suits and spraying down the audience at every show they put on with fake (we hope) blood shot from a cannon would want anything to do with a poppy eighties song. Then you’ll remember what “She Bop” actually means and you’ll be like, “Ohhhhh. Yeah, makes sense.” 

You’re just gonna have to see this for yourselves. Period.
