The most outrageous band ever to come from Chicago has to be God Wafer, a six-piece music machine that takes elements of rock, funk, and punk and wraps it up into something they call Funk Punkin' Roll Rock. Their live shows feature an energetic stage presentation which includes props, visual aids and audience participation, as well as incredible musical performances.

God Wafer was formed early in the twenty-first century by guitarist Gusto Tangerine, bassist Superfly Russell and drummer Dyno. The band started playing shows throughout the Midwest and immediately began to develop a loyal following. The band decided to add a member to expand their already dynamic sound, and in 2003, keyboardist/drummer Johnny Everwood joined the group. The stage show started to become more elaborate, including various props, "visual aids" and the development of a dual drum sound, adding a tribal percussive element to the funky groove.

The Host With The Most, the first official God Wafer CD, was released in 2003, followed by a flurry of touring. Early in 2005, God Wafer added vocalists Vapor and Rooftop Honey, completing the vision and propelling the group into new realms of entertaining musical performances. In June 2005, 3 songs from the CD were featured on the Discovery Channel TV series Urban Explorers.

Music For Heathens, the second official God Wafer CD, was released in the autumn of 2006. Early reaction to the songs "Atom Bomb" and "Skin Tone Phone" has been especially positive. God Wafer is currently planning a tour to support the album in early 2007, starting in the Midwest and heading East.
