Death Piggy

Death Piggy was an American hardcore punk band, formed in 1982 in Richmond, Virginia.[1] They flourished briefly, before Dave Brockie, then their lead singer/bassist, decided to play a joke set while wearing monster costumes as an opening act for Death Piggy. This joke act would later be the basis for the heavy metal band GWAR. They put out a few 45s (some limited to 301 copies) and had a small yet loyal following. They played their last show in 1994, before the death of Sumner.
