According to Blabbermouth.net, GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus slammed Hellyeah during his group's April 25 performace in Buffalo, New York, calling them "fat, dumbass, tattooed ignorant, inbred f--ks" and making fun of Hellyeah's band name.

Before Oderus and his bandmates launched into "The Uberklaw" from their 2009 album, "Lust In Space", the frontman addressed the crowd with the following tirade (see video below):

"How 'bout that new Hellyeah record? Pretty good, huh? What a great name for a band - Hell, yeah. That is so awesome. How did those fat, stupid dudes from Texas ever come up with something so awesome? How did those fat, dumbass, tattooed, ignorant, inbred f--ks ever come up with such an amazing idea as Hellyeah? Wow, Stephen Hawking, move over! Hahahahaha!"

The next day, the members of Hellyeah themselves responded via Twitter, writing, "We"d like to thank Gwar's lead singer for talking shit about us at one of their shows. Classy guy...yay you!"

Hellyeah singer Chad Gray added next day, "I don't know what all the hype is on this gwar thing. I think it's an honor to be ripped on by gwar! They're awesome! Thanks oderus!"

    I don't really take seriously anything that comes from GWAR, for some reason...

    GWAR are more or less a parody band, I don't see why anyone would take this seriously

    I dont know much about GWAR, and regardless of those rather odd comments about Hellyeah, I like the fact that the one dude looks like a Krogan.

    What's the big deal? That's just GWAR being GWAR. I completely agree what Chad Gray said.

    Gwar makes fun of bands all the time, not so much to be mean as to simply take the piss. It's nothing more than a joke.

    I consider Hellyeah more of a joke band than GWAR. I mean, "Alcohaulin' Ass"? Really? That is the most white trash thing ever recorded.

    Too soon Chad! Gwar didn't disembowel dummies resembling Hellyeah yet

    The new Hellyeah record doesn't even come out till July, so I'd like to know how Oderus got a copy of it. But seriously, GWAR is a parody band so nothing they say can really be taken seriously. I do love that Chad Gray has a sense of humor about the whole thing.

    *Slow Clap* Such a terrible band. I like how Pantera fans have to like Hellyeah, even though they feature exactly *one* member of that band, who didn't do any songwriting.

    Not reading the comments because I will rage pretty hard. Saw GWAR play the last show of the "Farewell Flattus"/Return of the World Maggot tour on Saturday. It was amazing and ended in a great tribute to Corey Smoot at the end. Anybody who thinks that just because they are funny that they aren't legitimate musicians is a complete and total idiot. HAIL FLATTUS! RIP Corey Smoot

    You listen to the last three albums and tell me that's punk.

    GWAR is pretty much the walking roast for bands. They talk shit to bands not because they feel they deserve it, it's because it's all for kicks. Hell even the band members liked it getting roasted and if they're alright with it, then I don't see what's really the big deal to get mad at it. I like both bands anyway so even if bridges are gonna be burned, I'm still gonna listen to their music and like it if I do.

    It's probably the perfect position actually. More funny that way.

    Hellyeah is just another generic band created by the record companies, nothing more. Whether you like GWAR or not, the guy's right. Either way, music is dead these days. Completely. Way too over-saturated

    People have to realize that this is Gwar. This is what they do, they're the original trolls. Stop being wusses.

    Yet you just added to that very fact. Hurrrr

    ...and stop boasting about Vinnie Paul. Pantera was okay musically, but I don't remember listening to them for "awesome drumming". He's pretty much another version of Lars Ulrich.

    At least Hellyeah doesn't need to play dress up to get attention.

    Pretty funny how one of them is using Dimebag's signature guitar whilst they talk shit about his brother's band. Personally I find both bands boring, but that's just my opinion.
    hotdogs585
    what does that have to do with anything? Lots of people use that guitar, doesn't mean shit.
    COREYTAYLOR721
    Is there one good song by Hellyeah that comes to mind? Guess not, all I can think about is alcoh.....well u know where I am going with this. +1 to GWAR for stating the obvious but perhaps they should critique themselves too.

    It's not getting trolled if you know the concept of their "brand" and still think it's stupid -.-

    Lol the reaction that the "Hellyeah" members posted is hilarious! Shows that they also don't take it serious at all.
