Gore loving heavy metal group Gwar has entered the Billboard Top 200 album charts at number 96 with their latest studio offering, "Lust In Space." This is the highest charting album of the bands career.

Lead singer Oderus Urungus had the following to say about GWAR’s record setting chart debut, “We are appalled, shocked, outraged, and completely ecstatic over GWAR's latest master-work, Lust In Space debuting at #96 in the Billboard Charts...in keeping with my finally confirmed uber-rock star status, I have already vomited on Lindsay Lohan's puss, visited the the Obama girls, and sodomized Carrot-Top. And there was much rejoicing.”

Still sporting nachos in his beard, Oderus continued to rant “But 96? That's just not going to do it...GWAR and Metal Blade Records plan to keep on with this relentless assault until we go all the way to # 95!"

I'd like to remind them that as a trusted TV personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others, to toil in their underground sugar caves.

Agreed ^^^, especially since it only cost me $12.50 US (NZ $18.28). Back home it would have cost me NZ $35, maybe more because it's a digipak.
