GWAR Frontman 'Canned' From FOX NEWS' 'Red Eye' Show

According to, GWAR lead singer Oderus Urungus who last year was named the official "Interplanetary Correspondent" for the "Red Eye" late-night/early-morning talk show on the Fox News channel is no longer able to appear on the program because of negative backlash from right-wing conservatives.

GWAR has been decapitating replicas of politicians during its legendary live show and the "Bloody Tour Of Horror" was no exception as it featured Oderus Urungus and the rest of the band tearing apart Lady Gaga and former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin (see video below). Apparently the Sarah Palin constituents and supporters caught wind of the nightly slaying and the political blogs and web sites were overwhelmed with comments about Palin's untimely demise.

During a recent visit to New York while on tour with GWAR, Urungus sat down with "Red Eye" host Greg Gutfeld and learned he was no longer invited back to the show because of the band's treatment of the mock Palin.

Even though GWAR has been "beheading" politicians for years, Fox apparently wasn't bothered by the activity until Palin's likeness was attacked.

Writing on his Twitter page, Urungus said, "I got canned because Sarah Palin complained that we disemboweled her. The nerve of that woman!" He added, "Sound off like you got a pair if you think it sucks that I am not on 'Red Eye' anymore!"

Oderus previously stated about the criticism GWAR received for its Palin "decapitation," "Is this what American politics has come to? We have killed every president since Reagan, regardless of party affiliation, and the proof of it is all over the net...but the right-wing teabag numbnuts are getting their knickers in a twist over somebody that doesn't even hold office, and in fact left her office as Alaskan governor in order to concentrate on her reality show...and is this woman actually being considered as a potential president? Why does the agenda of the right require that America be viewed as a global laughing stock? Because between Wikileaks and the attention this idiot gets, that is exactly what you are... Besides, we don't even kill her, just rip her in half, and honestly she seems to love it! Anything for attention, I suppose."
