Late Dave Brockie's (aka Oderus Urungus) final interview has recently surfaced, giving us a chance to see GWAR frontman's more mellow side without his typical wild rants.

Chatting with Andrew Haug, Brockie shared a genuine love of life and rock culture, saying, "We've got this one time, this vital, beautiful, amazing time that we're alive. Let's. Go. Hard. Let's go f--king hard.

"I remember when I was a f--king 18-year-old street kid in DC, walking in to see a band called Minor Threat," Dave continued. "Years have gone by and now I'm f--king 50 years old and like, I just wanna go hard as f--k until I die. And I'm not a drug addict, I do like alcohol and I like weed. And this is one thing I will say to every single band out there - don't get f--ked up with the coke or heroin, all that bulls--t, just drink and smoke weed.

"And go hard, go hard 'till you die, go hard 'till death," the frontman concluded.

At the end of the chat, Oderus was asked to pick a single track from the GWAR catalogue. Opting for "Baby Raper," the frontman noted: "I feel people are raped at birth. From the very beginning we're f--king raped with dogma, that's bulls--t. They don't let us be our own selves.

"And you know what? F--k them. F--k the police. F--k the military industrial complex. I grew up on the f--king Sex Pistols, Minor Threat and motherf--king Crass and I'm never, ever gonna put down my sword. But it's a rubber sword, it's a non-violent revolution and that's what I'm about."

The interview was conducted on March 1 at this year's Soundwave Festival in Australia. Brockie has passed away about three weeks later, on March 23. Give the full interview a listen below.

    If you look at the size of the Cuttlefish of the Cthulu, there's no doubting he went hard until he died.
    Absolute legend, heavy metal and satire in one, this man will sorely be missed!
    Humble to the last, he asked if the interview was OK at the end. Of course, it was amazing! A guy who was true to himself despite what anyone said or did. I really enjoyed seeing GWAR play in New Orleans and oddly enough, I bumped into GWAR in Omaha, because their tour bus broke down and they were hanging outside a (now defunct) venue called the Ranch Bowl. What a bizarre image. Me, King Buzzo and Dale Crover from The Melvins and Danielle Stampe (Slymenstra Hymen) from GWAR talking about how she just set the world record for most volts through a person. Unforgettable!
    I was never in to GWAR's music, but they were always pretty awesome and hilariously entertaining. R.I.P Oderus, you were a legend and definitely lived life to the fullest and in the right way
    hmm isnt it weird that he died recently after saying he wants to throw a revolution? something to think about
    Why is it that he speaks about a revaluation and over throwing the government and ends up dead and reports say he was fine then following day found slumped in his chair doesn't sound right
    "Im not a drug addict" Ironically his death is supposed to be Drug related according to police reports. Still sad
    Always wanted to ask this - In the comic Watchmen, there is a movement called Gay Women Against Rape, or GWAR. Is that where they got their band name from or is it just a coincidence?
