Rocks Off has been a big fan of the Genitorturers ever since we saw a bumper sticker that read, "My honor student got sodomized at the Genitorturers show!" We sat down with Gen, the lead singer of the long-running industrial band to see what we could learn about her in 30 seconds.
Rocks Off: What is the worst song in the world?
Gen: The "Waffle House Song." We do find it very entertaining while on the road, however. We gather up all the loose change in the tour bus and fire it in the Waffle House jukebox for all the patrons to be tortured all evening!
RO: What is the best lyric in the world?
G: "It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n' roll" -- AC/DC. Cause despite what the millions of zombified American Idol worshippers think, it is very true!
RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you. What do you do?
G: Grab the thrower out of the audience and give them a beer enema.
RO: Without worrying about space, time, or the laws of physics, what is the ultimate gig?
G: To travel back in time and play with Kiss, Alice Cooper, and AC/DC in the '70s. To witness true rock and roll masters making history.
RO: What would you buy with a million dollars?
G: An island in Indonesia next to where the mola mola sun themselves.
RO: What will you buy with your last dollar?
G: Gummi Bears.
RO: If you could canonize another musician, who would it be and of what would they be the patron saint?
G: Angus Young, the patron saint of balls to the wall badass guitar.
The Genitorturers play Scout Bar Saturday, Feb. 19 with Hanzel und Gretyl and A Digital Death.
