In fact, Scumdogs of the Universe is probably the band’s most eclectic album (in terms of vocalists). It really does compliment the whole album. This album also contains Gwar’s experimentation with samples. Maggots is the best example of this, seeing as it contains annoying buzzes throughout the track, but it’s still rather humorous. The 4th track, Slaughterama, is definitely one of the better tracks on this album. Sleazy P. Martini is featured in this track, and this song is basically about a game show involving the killing of Nazi skinheads and hippies

After all, every GWAR album is a learning experience even for fans and it takes time for the band’s music to really adhere to your tastes. But Scumdogs is the most immediately palatable and the most consistently enjoyable of their albums, as well as one of the most quotable (seriously, read them lyrics). It’s the place to start if you want to know what all the racket is about. Case in point, "Scumdogs Of The Universe. I first heard this around 1990 while in High School. I have to admit that the album cover and lyrics amused me greatly. As for the music, there really isn't a bad song on the disc. Each musician does a fine job, the production is good, all instruments are plainly heard, and Oderus belts out some great vocals.
