GWAR: Rob Zombie Is A Sell-Out
GWAR frontman David Brockie (better known as Oderus Urungus) has slammed Rob Zombie as "a tired, G-Rated mishmash of other people's styles." He says other artists have tried to do what GWAR only to make money, but "no one has ever out-sicked us." "You think these Walmart behemoths of the music industry like Marilyn Manson or Rob Zombie are really scary people?" asked Brokie. "All they care about is making money, and hanging out with their director buddies as they throw gala award ceremonies to circle jerk each other into a frenzy. GWAR is where GWAR should be: In the drawer marked filth." He continued, "I have a direct quote from Rob Zombie about GWAR when he was figuring out what he wanted to do with his career... he said, 'The first time I saw GWAR, I thought 'I want to be that, but I want to make money.'' That, to me, says a lot about Rob Zombie as an artist. It says that he isn't one." Brockie gives more credit to Marylin Manson for having a genuine obnoxious streak, and respects Slipknot for their music despite using clique imagery. He recognises that GWAR have also borrowed visual ideas, "but no-one has gone further than GWAR has gone." Is the GWAR frontman right to knock other artists who have found ways to make money from similar sick themes? Is GWAR too weird for a mainstream audience? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
