Your favorite A.V. Undercover of the year was...

For the third year in a row, it’s GWAR. While the lovable scumdogs’ previous appearances were raucous celebrations, this year the band returned for a GWAR-ified take on “West End Girls,” but the band opted to show its sensitive side when it abruptly launched into The Jim Carroll Band’s “People Who Died” as a tribute to the band’s deceased leader Dave Brockie. While GWAR cemented its place as the Michael Jordan of A.V. Undercover, the runners-up were engaged in a much closer fight. The top 10 Undercovers for 2014 can be found below with their point totals right alongside them, and for those of you not ready for all the fun to be over, we’ve got a few more Holiday Undercovers coming your way before the year’s over.
