So, your little tykes won’t give you a moment’s peace at night? Well fear not, hopeless parents! GWAR’s Oderus Urungus has just the thing to tire those children out and teach them to shape the fuck up in the process. The intergalactic barbarian just sat down with Loudwire for a reading of Margaret Wise Brown’s classic picture book Goodnight Moon. But it’s no ordinary reading. It is, all exaggeration aside, the greatest audiobook reading of Goodnight Moon ever recorded. Urungus editorializes at his leisure (“That’s not a lot of stuff for one page, I tell you.”), creating a much filthier version of the book that stands with Samuel L. Jackson reading Adam Mansbach’s Go The Fuck To Sleep as one of the best bedtime stories for mature audiences. (“That’s a cow, you fuck. That’s a fucking cow jumping over the fucking moon. That doesn’t fucking happen, okay? And neither did fucking Apollo 13.”) Take a listen, and enjoy the copious potshots at Gavin Rossdale’s band.
