GWAR on The Jerry Springer Show and Joan Rivers
The band also parlayed their fame into appearance on two of the more popular talk shows of the ’90s. Appearing alongside The Mentors, GWAR probably shocked many parents in 1997 in an episode devoted to “shock rock.” A very game Springer actually went to a GWAR show and got eaten onstage. “We weren’t talented enough to make it unless we wore those silly costumes,” Brockie told Springer. Rivers gamely bantered with Brockie and Beefcake the Mighty on her talk show as well.
