While in Chicago, the band once again stopped by the A/V Club's studios for a cover. You might recall they previously covered covered Kansas and did an incredible Billy Ocean cover. You'll notice that both times they went to A/V Club was with frontman Oderus Urungus, who sadly is not with them anymore.

So it was only fitting for their third time back, at the end of their excellent cover of Pet Shop Boys' “West End Girls,” they changed up the lyrics a bit to pay tribute to their former frontman. Here's the video and lyrics:

“People Who Died” (GWAR version)

Robin slashed his wrist and then he hung from a rope.
Peter’s heart gave out after he’d kicked dope.
Jeff, bit by a spider, died of toxic shock.
Ryan drove his car right into a rock.
Cancer brought down Castleman.
Damn it, David. I miss you, man!

Those are people who died, died. (X4)
They were all my friend and they died.

Sean was beat to death by the Boston PD.
Drunk in his cell, no more Death Piggy.
Dimebag was shot by a lunatic fan.
Mike Scaccia died with a guitar in his hand.
Those were three more friends of mine.
Three more friends that died.

Crazy White Sean, how crazy could it get,
That he choked in a chat on the internet.
Cory died in his bunk at a border crossing,
The gap in his teeth still in need of a flossing.
Cory, I miss you my brother.
You left little Cory without a father.

Dave died alone in his chair in his room.
He had just turned 50, it was way too soon.
Oderus’ boat went up in flames,
Now all of Vallhalla chants his name!
Oderus, I miss you more than all the others.
I salute you my brother!

Oderus died, died. (X4)
He was all of our friend and he died.

Very very cool. Did I mention I can't wait to see them on tour?
