GWAR always have something cool to do around Halloween. For a few years, it was appearing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Last year, they stopped by the Howard Stern wrap-up show to cover a childhood song the talk show host wrote, “Silver Nickels and Golden Dimes.” Yesterday, in support of their new album The Blood of Gods and before their sold-out show at Irving Plaza, the band stopped by Stern’s wrap-up show again, and played another song. This time, it was a touching cover of Maroon 5’s breakout hit, “Harder to Breathe.” Why? Why not?
The Blood of Gods is out now.
