GWAR scares us, both because they’re giant monsters from outer space with exaggerated genitals, and also because they keep coming back to Undercover and destroying (in the best way) every song they attempt. This year it’s Cyndi Lauper’s “She Bop,” the 1984 single that followed in the massive wake of “Girls Just Want To Have Fun.” The lyrics here are something of an extension of that song, considering that they’re about masturbation. Though they’re pretty tame-sounding 30 years later, the words to “She Bop” were cited as one of the “filthy 15” that led to Tipper Gore and the PMRC getting all up in the music business. As usual, GWAR made the song their own—and added a little something extra, too.
