It's always fun when Gwar stops by the Onion offices.

The group, led by Michael Bishop on vocals, has proven they can take any song and make it their slave, as they do below with Cyndi Lauper's "She Bop" as part of the Onion's beloved Undercover series (where bands are invited to pick a song to cover from an ever-dwindling list).

Of course, Gwar's version is raw and punked up, with a little Ramones' "Blitzkrieg Bop" action thrown in for good measure.

Other songs the group has performed in the past at the Onion offices include: Kansas' "Carry On My Wayward Son," Pet Shop Boys' "West End Girls," Billy Ocean's "Get Into My Car" and the Jim Carroll Band's "People Who Died" in tribute to Dave Brockie.
