** Their third appearance on the Onion AV Club's already mentioned "Undercover" series, which was also their first since the passing of Dave Brockie. The song they were supposed to be covering was Music/PetShopBoys' "West End Girls", but like their Music/BillyOcean cover, the ending mashed it up with another song -- This time it was The Jim Carroll Band's "People Who Died," with [[http://genius.com/Gwar-people-who-died-lyrics/ new lyrics]] referencing friends of the band who they'd lost over the years, including [[Music/{{Pantera}} Dimebag Darrell,]] Creator/RobinWilliams, [[Music/TypeONegative Peter Steele,]] and even ''Cory Smoot'' [[note]] The longest lasting guitarist to play Flattus Maximus [[/note]] and ''Dave Brockie'' himself (as well as his alter-ego Oderus Urungus, because TheCharacterDiedWithHim):

** The latter point can be (more or less) justified when one remembers that Oderus literally ''was'' the FaceOfTheBand - almost every interview of the band featured him, he was the only character consistently played by the same person, and let's face it - he couldn't open his mouth without saying something so completely ridiculous that it made everyone either crack up or foam at the mouth with rage; there was ''no'' in-between.

*** [[http://lambgoat.com/news/25197/Upon-A-Burning-Body-singer-ass-kicked-by-female Other sources dispute this]], however. Someone who claims to have witnessed the fight said Leal walked up to a group of 'belligerent and clearly intoxicated' women (including Dylla) and asked where the bathrooms were. One of the women made a rude and sarcastic comment to Leal, who responded with a nasty comment of his own. He was then allegedly attacked by Dylla, who attempted to punch him and missed, and then proceeded to laugh with the women and tell Leal "how [she and her friends] were going to fuck them over and they couldn't do anything back because they were girls".
