As part of our ongoing project to catalog the 2012 presidential election from a metal point of view, we've been soliciting presidential endorsements from noteworthy American metal musicians. Today: GWAR.

Oderus Urungus, Lord of Earth and lead singer of GWAR, sends a strong endorsement of murdering every presidential candidate on a gigantic wheel of over-sized knives. Though Urungus, a several-century old extraterrestrial, is not technically an American citizen, we felt it wise to publish his endorsement and add him to the list nonetheless. His statement follows:

For some time people have been harping on me to sound off on my opinions regarding the upcoming Presidential elections, and to state my endorsement of a paticular candidate. Never one to shy away from cheap publicity, for some reason I did. The reason? Simply put, all the offered choices are so nauseatingly banal that there is no flavor I favor. I hate all of them, and their institutions make me sick. They all suck so bad that I cannot begin to do anything other than reject everything they stand for, and can endorse no party or candidate so much as I heartily cry for their destruction, lust for them to be tasked and scourged with fire and whips, and yearn to see great clouds of insects set upon their genitals, and feast upon their diseased and dripping dick slits and big rotten pussies. Do not vote for them, gather in mobs and attack them in their homes — drag them into the streets and impale them upon a gigantic wheel of over-sized knives, and this goes for Obama too!
