"Punk" Band Makes Sex Video On Westboro Baptist Church Property, Still Sucks (NSFW)

Screen grab from the video.
Instinctively, you might want to root for these guys, because it is the Westboro Baptist Church and all. But you shouldn't. Everyone involved here sucks.
Recently, a "punk" band called Get Shot! decided to do what "punk" bands love to do for the attention of the media: make a brainless scene. In this particular case, it was a brainless porn scene. In a video shot by the group, Get Shot!'s bassist, Laura Lush, masturbated on the lawn of notorious hatemongers the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas.

Not coy in the attention-seeking department, Get Shot! also runs a porn site that promotes its music (NSFW, obviously). The stunt has recently caught fire across the Internet, gaining the band attention from websites like Gawker and Spin. And it sucks.

Because they are assholes.

Get Shot!'s logo.
The band members themselves, like any real punk band, list their influences on their Facebook page as groups like New York Dolls, Dead Boys, Hanoi Rocks and Motley Crue. Their stated intent is also fairly credible and familiar to any legitimate punk band out there: to get famous. Prior to this breathtakingly creative viral video, Get Shot! could be seen on every Facebook group even vaguely connected to the word "punk," ingeniously promoting the band with photos of naked women.

Also, one time vocalist J.P. Hunter falsely claimed to have thrown a hot dog at Tiger Woods, for some reason.


This video, uploaded by the band, is entitled "GET SHOT! - 'Cum On You' (Album Version with Sexy Band Pics)."

Then there's the quality of the music. While it would be easy to pick apart the band's infantile and hackneyed brand of strip-mall-style "punk rock," the real trouble comes when you examine the homophobic and (predictably) misogynistic lyrics. From its Reverbnation page:

"EMO FAG, CUT YOUR HAIR
I'D KICK YOUR ASS BUT IT WOULDN'T BE FAIR"

"THE NAME IS GET SHOT! WE'RE BRINGING YOUR BOYFRIEND DOWN CUZ WE'RE THE SLUTTIEST BAND IN TOWN
TELL YOUR LONG HAIRED DRAG QUEEN HE'D BETTER GET HELP BECAUSE WHEN YOU DON'T COME HOME HE'LL KILL HIMSELF!!!"

"FAGGOT TWEEKERS LETS FUCK THEM ALL UP"

"THEN SOME STUPID BITCH STOOD ME UP ON A FUCKING DATE"

There will be no funeral. They said they do not "worship the dead" and that all his needs were met when he died.

I personally know this band and there are a few things the singer J.P. apparently has failed to disclose. First, they are not a punk band. They play '80s hair metal. They have been trying unsuccessfully to book shows in California and have tried every publicity stunt in order to try to get a record deal. They first hoped that getting fat, drunk girls to dance on stage would get them noticed- it didn't work. They pestered the San Francisco sex worker's alliance to play their event so they could be associated with sex. That was also unsuccessful. Their last female bassist quit when she realized as the only female, they expected her to live up to their wannabe-rock star antics of getting laid. Their new bassist is "try-sexual", as in she tries out making out with women in front of men at concerts and parties so that guys think she is "hot." Then they opened their free "porn site" full of photos of their female drunk friends who couldn't get hired due to their out-of-shape physiques and lack of modeling experience. None of these women are paid and only receive free alcohol during these "photo shoots." The new female bassist decided she wasn't getting enough attention being "try-sexual" so J.P. convinced her she might get noticed by people if she "masturbated" in front of the Westboro Baptist Church. In reality, this was not a risky endeavor. There were no cops across the street or security guards or church members watching, contrary to J.P.'s "press release" that he wrote from his bedroom. No one was around which is why they were not at any risk of being jailed. Laura (the bassist) spent 5 minutes attempting to look like she was really into the prospect of touching her pasty white body in front of J.P. and the other creepy members of the band. Then they ran off like children having just pulled a prank in school. It was not a porn they shot. J.P.'s website is not a "porn site." The series of awkward pictures of Suicide Girls rejects isn't enough to get a rise out of the biggest sex predators around. J.P. has attempted to build a "sleazy" image for the band since no one in California liked their music or went to their shows. He also claims he is a bounty hunter for a living, yet works no more than 2 days every few months, receiving financial assistance from his parents, which is why he has the time to dream up publicity stunt after publicity stunt in an attempt to get noticed. This man has repeatedly creeped out women by touching them inappropriately without their consent, which I have witnessed. He likes to claim he does cocaine, including on his "porn page" by saying, "...because we can't sell cocaine," to explain why he started a "porn" site. In actuality, he does not do cocaine at all and is morally against people using drugs, having harrassed and kicked out a former band member for his occasional drug use. J.P. is desperate for attention and this time is pulling out all the stops to try again to get notoriety for being a "player" and surrounding himself with other attention-hungry, drunk females. However this sad ploy for attention will still not assist them in getting a record deal which people have told him on his Facebook account, but he is adamant this stunt is "The One." People in California are very tired of his antics and trying to force people to hear his band's terrible music, for example, by posting it in the background of the try-sexual, untalented bass player's creepy Pee Wee Herman-esque video. The California punk community all hopes he stops claiming his band is "punk" since it brings a bad name to the community.

Surprisingly, I actually kind of liked that song with the video. The singer sounds similar to the dude from Megadeth. Misterfister's comment made me laugh out loud, and the argument of what real punk is, is tiring and pointless. Also... the first sentence of this quote-unquote "editorial" is annoying.

Neil, understanding punk rock is about the message within the music. Punk rock speaks to your inner soul and your core values. It's a revolution. It's an idea. It's about a singular voice that encourages others to stand with them and let their own voices be heard. It's about taking a stance against the intolerable tyranny of those who wish to try to control others. It's about being an individual. It's about creativity. Since it's incarnation into the music world it's been distorted over the decades, which if you truly consider this garbage to be punk music then I see how badly you've been misinformed during your lifespan and that a lot of what you've been raised on is the lesser versions of the original innovators of this genre. For that, my friend, makes me truly sad for you because it shows that you have obviously lost the thread, not I. ***P.S. As to my whereabouts or credentials, the only people I have to give accountability to for that is a grand jury while under oath...not someone who is younger than my own child and is of no relation to me. And if you want examples try listening to the music of those who created punk rock music and then let me know if any of them present the same message as this wannabe punk band. I'm pretty sure you'll be disappointed when you find they don't.***

Punk is not style, it is attitude. Get Shot epitomizes.

I also find it amusing that you claim to know what punk is all about without giving any examples other than some vague absurd assertion you make about "Being there" OK where? Were you born in the UK back in 1960? If you think that understanding punk rock means having to have been born in a particular decade then you have obviously lost the thread.

So according to you a person has to be a certain age to understand punk rock? ha ha ha Oh please tell me more about how much more punk rock things were back in your day ha ha ha ha Hey how many punk rockers does it take to screw in a light bulb? One and a million others to say they did it first and it was more punk when they did it. Spare me the pulling rank argument cause it holds no water with me.

How old are you? Because I was alive when punk music came into the scene...I witnessed it's evolution from the gritty underground to mainstream. Those of us that know what TRUE punk music is will agree that this type of so-called "punk" music is not what it was founded on nor would it be so depraved in it's message to the youth of the world. Maybe instead of being a sheep you should actually study up on punk music history and not just take the word of others who are not over the age of 35 as to what punk really is in the core sense of the genre. So, to answer your question, no I don't get to decide what punk is, but I, and I'm sure those within my age group, certainly KNOW what it is and what it truly stands for which is something this band obviously doesn't.

The Westboro Baptist Church is more offensive than any sex video I've ever seen. If Westboro feel they have the right to offend people then so should everyone else. It's a shame that we live in a society that tolerates messages of hate more than sexuality. This was a stunt none the less but a good one at that and I am amused.

I would have vouched for letting "their dog" crap on the front lawn, but whatever. BTW, it's never too late for an "accidental drone strike" on their lawn. [Wink wink folks at Whitman AFB]

lol I have to say it's funny -- but the band's homophobic lyrics don't make sense to protesting the "god hates fags" church

I'd never heard of them or this stunt until now. You just gave free advertisement to this group, their stunt and Westboro. Who won?

That's not the punk style nor what punk stands for....it's more like they're being disgusting assholes is all that is.
