GG Allin was an American punk rock singer-songwriter, who is best remembered for his notorious live performances, which often featured transgressive acts, including coprophagia, self-mutilation, and attacking audience members. AllMusic and G4TV’s That’s Tough have called him “the most spectacular degenerate in rock & roll history” and the “toughest rock star in the world”, respectively.

Allin promised for several years that he would commit suicide onstage during one of his concerts, but died offstage of an accidental heroin overdose on June 28, 1993.

The funeral took place on July 3, 1993 in his native New Hampshire, at the St. Rose Cemetery, Littleton. At his funeral, Allin’s bloated, unpreserved corpse was dressed in his black leather jacket and trademark jock strap. He had a bottle of Jim Beam beside him in his casket, per his wishes (openly stated in his self-penned acoustic country ballad, “When I Die”). As part of his brother’s request, the mortician was instructed not to wash the corpse (which smelled strongly of feces) or apply any makeup.

Allin’s funeral became a low-level party. Friends posed with his corpse, placing drugs and whiskey into his mouth. As the funeral ended, his brother put a pair of headphones on Allin. The headphones were plugged into a portable cassette player, in which was loaded a copy of The Suicide Sessions. Allin was buried in his mother Arleta’s plot beside his grandparents.

      I agree and as well think his friends and family are as well mentally ill. Surprised the funeral home did not face disciplinary charges for allowing desecration of a corpse.
