Petition Launches for GWAR to Perform at 2015 NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show
Finally there's a petition we can all get behind. Regardless of political ideology, socioeconomic status, race or religion, we can all agree that GWAR deserves to perform at the 2015 NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show.
GWAR and the NFL share the exact same target audience. Chest-pounding, beer-drinking, hot wing-devouring dudes with pot bellies don't want to have their buzz dimmed by poppy garbage during halftime of the Super Bowl. The Black Eyed Peas stunk the place up in 2011, Madonna didn't fare much better in 2012 and Beyonce filled up time at this year's halftime show. Bruno Mars has been revealed as the 2014 Super Bowl halftime show performer, and in response, rock and metal fans rolled their eyes for the fourth consecutive year. We need a kick-ass metal band to shake the Earth during halftime at the Super Bowl, and GWAR is the perfect band to invade that stage.
A petition has been launched via Change.org with the goal of delivering everybody's favorite intergalactic alien scum to the 50-yard line of Super Bowl XLIX. "The time for GWAR to address the nation is NOW," begins the petition. "GWAR's relationship with American football is one of the strongest in music. Why should articles like "Bruno Mars Announced For Super Bowl Halftime Show, Gwar Waits Until Next Year (Again)" be a joke? Front man Dave Brockie writes a football collumn for Metal Sucks.com called "Necessary Roughness" even the "The Dan Patrick Show" has an Oderous mask on display. It's even been suggested by Sports Illustrated that GWAR should become mascots. Every year people complain about who the halftime show is, now we are telling you who we want: WE WANT GWAR!"
Join the good fight by heading over to Change.org and committing your name to the cause … NOW!
