As GWAR themselves have pointed out, the late Oderus Urungus and Beefcake The Mighty apparently made a cameo in the pilot episode of “Rick In Morty” back in 2013. You can see a photo of that in the below tweet. This isn’t the only time GWAR have had a connection with the show either. The band also recently helped destroy a “Rick And Morty” themed bar in Washington D.C. after it was forced to close down following a cease-and-desist from Turner Broadcasting. You can read more about that and see some photos over at Vice.
This year’s Louder Than Life and Aftershock festivals will be hosting some special all-star tributes for the late Vinnie Paul (Pantera, HELLYEAH, etc.). The sets are being curated by SiriusXM’s Jose Mangin and they will feature various artists performing Pantera and Damageplan covers.
Members of the following bands will be participating:
Louder Than Life: Five Finger Death Punch, Godsmack, HELLYEAH, Sevendust, GWAR, Bullet For My Valentine, Body Count, Kyng, Cane Hill, and more.
Aftershock: Korn, Godsmack, Deftones, HELLYEAH, Shinedown, Sevendust, GWAR, Kyng, Emmure, and more.
“Vinnie is an idol turned big time friend, and he left a massive void on this earth. When Danny [Wimmer] and Gary [Spivack] asked me to put together something special for Vin, I knew the best way to pay tribute to him would be to throw a Texas-sized jam session belting out Pan-mutha-fukkin-tera songs loud & proud! Everyone involved is doing this because they love Vinnie, and together we can all carry on his name, music and spirit forever!”
Louder Than Life will be held on September 28-30 at Champions Park in Louisville, KY and Aftershock will be held on October 13-14 at Discovery Park in Sacramento, CA.
