GWAR covers Billy Ocean’s “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car”, and it’ll make you swoon

The last time GWAR participated in the A.V. Club’s Undercover series, they transformed Kansas’ “Carry On My Wayward Son” into a heavy metal monstrosity. For round two, frontman Oderus Urungus and his rowdy brood covered Billy Ocean’s 1988 dance-pop anthem “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car”. Even after bemoaning the song’s lack of guitars and outright contradictions (“He says I’ll be your non-stop lover but get it while you can. I don’t get it.”), your Super Bowl XLVIII halftime headliners unleash a cover somewhere between grimy punk-rock anthem and a sensual ballad involving hip thrusts and falsetto harmonies. Though, in hindsight, they totally missed a chance to change the lyrics to “Get out my dreams/ And inside the belly of my giant worm monster.” Oh well.
