Finally you can experience a live performance in relative safety. Those too timid to attend a live Gwar show will appreciate that even though most viewers will suffer permanent brain damage at least they won't get blood all over their latest trendy outfit. Laugh in abject horror as Oderous Urungus, The Sexicutioner, Slymenstra Hymen, and company Rape, Burn, and Pillage their way into your heart.

War Party Tour 2004 (2004)[edit]

Released on Gwar's 2004 "Mock the Vote" tour, this limited DVD is basically a live show in 2004, with some similar concepts (and at the time, the first hearings of songs from War Party) from said tour. Some people had thought of this release as a more modern Live From Antarctica. Unlike Live From Antarctica, this DVD was limited in release to the latter "Mock the Vote" concerts in 2004 and 2005. In June 2007, Don Drakulich (Sleazy P. Martini) began selling a new DVD-R pressing of this show through his Hyperreal Productions web page.

Blood Bath And Beyond (2006)[edit]

Available on DVD June 20, 2006. It includes brand new videos, rare old stuff, and some live footage. There is a pornographic movie, starring Oderus Urungus and Sexecutioner, and is set to a demo of Sick of You, looped without any vocals. Also included is a very old video to Poor Ole Tom, directed by Dave Brockie. The main content of the movie is set up like an award show, where Oderus and Sleazy P. Martini reminisce with montages. They are the only two members of Gwar to actually make appearances, save a brief cameo by Balsac the Jaws of Death at the end, though some of the other Slave Pit Inc. employees are featured.

The announcer at the awards show is played by Chris Bopst, who was the first person to play BalSac the Jaws of Death.

Green screen animation/compositing, opening animations and additional camera work was done by Ken Jordan, a fellow VCU Art School student during Gwar's conception. Ken was a classmate of Michael Derks in the Music School for one year and a fellow Art School student of SlavePit foreman Bob Gorman in high school and at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Lust In Space – Live At The National (2010)[edit]

The footage for the DVD was filmed at the National Theater in Richmond, Virginia and chronicles Gwar's return to outer space in search of its old Scumdog legion and its battle against Cardinal Syn.
