America Must Be Destroyed [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
From the beginning, it's been one of Gwar's tricks to riff on the clichés of heavy metal while writing capably within the genre. The band's third effort presents a clutch of songs that don't disappoint in the grosser than gross category, but also feature tighter pacing and better performances. Note-perfect thrash opener "Ham on the Bone" should confuse anyone who hasn't yet figured out the joke. Lyrically, Gwar is up to its old tricks, presenting the aligning-the-alien anthem "Gor-Gor" next to "Have You Seen Me?," an utterly tasteless ode to kidnapping and molestation.

Later, metal's penchant for power ballads is eviscerated with the hilariously gory "Road Behind," and "Rock & Roll Never Felt So Good" crosses Kiss with an unsettling account of groupie decadence. Gwar is certainly an equal-opportunity offender. But the cynical humor that laces each song can't be ignored, even if you don't think it's funny.
