Hair / Glam Metal (Heavy Metal) band (1981-1987) and Heavy Metal band (1989-present) from Los Angeles, California (USA).

W.A.S.P. (a.k.a. WASP) formed in 1981. The band is led by vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Blackie Lawless. They arose out of Los Angeles's glam metal scene and gained notoriety for their over the top stage shows, which included the band throwing raw meat into the audience, scantily clad women on stage, and Lawless's spark-shooting codpiece. The group's first single, "Animal (Fuck Like A Beast)" brought further infamy. The group's name, itself, was somewhat controversial, as some theorized that W.A.S.P. stood for phrases like "We Are Sexual Perverts" and "We Are Satan's People", although, in fact, the periods between the letters were just for visual affect. The band was commercially successful throughout most of the 1980's but also caught the attention of parent's groups, most significantly the PMRC. Lawless continues to record and tour under the W.A.S.P. banner with various line ups. In the 2000s, he reclaimed the Christian faith of his youth and subsequently began toning down his stage shows and censoring some of the lyrics to some of his older, more explicit songs during live performances. He has also publicly stated that he will no longer play "Animal (Fuck Like A Beast)" due to his religious faith.

@ W.A.S.P. Please re-release your 1984 show on DVD or Blu-Ray. I want to enjoy the beautiful par-can lighting and Bill Tracy style stage set on my TV. Thank you sirs. You were one of the better bands of the time. I'm shocked there is such a lack of video footage where as Iron Maiden has too much video footage.

Do none of the debut albums have Animal on them? I swore that song was from their first album...

What are the live albums doing in the Albums section like Live... In The Raw, Double Live Assassins and The Sting, they need to be placed in an other section
