All week, fans have been paying tribute to Dave Brockie a.k.a. Oderus Urungus of GWAR, who died Sunday night. Over on Facebook, his personal page has become a memorial page, with fans writing touching tributes and posting/tagging photos of themselves with Oderus.
None of those tributes struck me as hard as the above illustration of Beavis & Butthead reacting to the news. It's definitely not an official illustration by Mike Judge and I think I remember seeing this same image right after 9/11, but still the message resonated with me.
GWAR gained many fans from being featured on Beavis & Butthead. The two metal fans, the protype for future commenters on this website, basically shit on everything but GWAR was one of the few bands they agreed ruled!
Check out musicians' tributes to Brockie from earlier this week.
