Fans Petition for GWAR to Play Super Bowl Halftime Show

Posted: Updated:

Fans of shock rockers GWAR want the popular band to perform at the 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show.

The Change.org petition to the National Football League demanding the band to play has more than 36,000 signatures.

"We don't want another year of sitting around talking through a muted, boring NFL Super Bowl halftime show," the petition says. "We want something different. We want a real spectacle that only GWAR can provide. Doesn't the NFL want more viewers? Don't advertisers want more people paying attention? This way everyone wins."

The post goes on to explain that frontman Dave Brockie writes a monthly column on American football for webzine MetalSucks.com and that the band are huge fans of the sport.

The Richmond band, well known for its elaborate horror-inspired costumes, obscene lyrics and graphic stage performances, has been performing for almost 30 years.

"GWAR is more American than apple pie," according to the petition.
