Gwar released the final track that was recorded with Cory Smoot ("Flattus Maximus"), who suddenly passed away this year, as a tribute to his memory. The track is a cover of Dayglo Abortions 1993 song "Isn't This Disgusting."

The song is available through iTunes at this location. All proceeds from the sale of the track will be given to the Smoot Family Fund in honor of the guitarist.

Gwar frontman Oderus Urungus had the following comments on the cover: "The Dayglos have always been one of my favourite bands ever since we played a show with them 25 years ago. So when we heard about this project we were completely stoked, not just with the idea, but the song selected for us. It pretty much sums up my whole attitude. But I had no idea it would the last time I worked with Cory Smoot in the studio. This track has Cory’s last studio leads, and as usual, they fucking rip. Cory may have left us but his music will live forever. CRANK IT!"

Dayglo Abortions' The Cretin also commented on the cover: "This makes me feel like I have accomplished something with my life. It is a bigger compliment than any industry award or anything else I can think of. Bigger than recognition from peers. A pat on the back from the big boys. I believe proceeds from this go to Cory Smoot’s family fund. So shell out the buck 99, then e-mail me a copy, ‘cuz I can’t afford it. Cheers to GWAR."
