The rock-n-roll madman known and feared worldwide as GG Allin was born Jesus Christ Allin -- for real -- to a Vermont family that lived in an actual log cabin on this date in 1956.
As chronicled in the documentary Hated, this one-of-a-kind talent literally tore audiences apart. While publicly performing his incendiary odes to evil, GG Allin would punch people out, empty his kidneys and bowels on stage, lacerate his skin, vomit, consume the body wastes of others, and assault all comers with any blunt object within his grasp.
Alas, the light that burns brightest also flames out fastest, and on June 29, 1993, GG Allin died of an accidental heroin overdose in New York City, failing to make good on his long-standing promise to commit suicide on-stage on Halloween.
So why would Mr. Skin pay tribute to so craven a man-beast? Because to a generation of over-the-edge and out-of-their-clothes female actresses, singers, model, performers, and artists, GG Allin serves as a Satanically powerful skinspiration.
Consider the Suicide Girls -- that pierced, tattooed tribe of shockingly salacious sexbombs, a squadron of whom co-star, naked and blood-sopped, in The Wizard of Gore. Do not miss Anomalisa, Cricket Demanuel, Amina Munster, Flux Suicide, or Jaime Suicide!
Before Melinda Clarke portrayed a rich-bitch MILF on The O.C., she was a self-mutilating zombie-hottie in Return of the Living Dead Part III, puncturing her luscious physique with tusks, blades, and jagged glass in a what may as well be a supernatural recreation of GG Allin at his freakiest.
With her occasional buzz-cut and ever-increasing body art, St. Louis scream-queen Emily Haack is a bewitching powerhouse of unconventional beauty, and she's made all the more alluring by how far she will physically commit to her every performance.
Mr. Skin himself has referred to supermodel Kate Moss as "the rich man's Meg McCarville," but Chicago-based multi-talented weirdo McCarville's entire existence is virtually an homage to GG. Check her out masturbating with a lollipop, and then sucking it clean, while smoking cigarettes in the shower in Green Lust.
Finally, a brutal touch of crotch-rocker GG seems to have even reached out and touched the urethra of pop songbird Alanis Morissette who, in her concert video We're With the Band, drops her drawers and lets fly with hot, liquid gold into a couple of keg cups on camera.
As long as hot chicks hurt themselves for their art and make unconventional uses of pee-pee, there lives GG.
