In fact, most of the more devoted of the devotees do in fact seem to be male. GG appeared on Jerry Springer once, and a young girl was on hand to explain why he was the most amazing thing to ever happen to her, but all Todd Phillips can find is a bunch of quite, well, geeky fellas who seem to love GG so much because he is doing what they all wish they were, but don't have the balls to.
Obviously these genitals are of the metaphorical variety. I don't mean to be rude GG but, honestly, I've saw nuns with bigger dicks.
Phillips seems to suggest that the reason for GG's popularity is simply because he speaks for an increasingly isolated and disenfranchised section of America's youth. The kind of kids who see smug, preening motherfuckers like Geraldo every day of their lives, and want nothing more to take a shit, chew it, and spit it into the bastard's face.
Geraldo in fact makes an appearance in the film, GG providing the focus of one of his shows. As the fans down front applaud their hero, Geraldo makes patronising comments about them, and about anyone who might even want to think seriously about what this maniac does for a living. You can see why these teenagers, these kids who are invited onto national television and then ridiculed, you can see how they might wanna punch a motherfucker in the jaw.
They don't though. Why? Fear, mostly. Something which GG Allin had seemingly little personal experience of, outside of his propensity to inflict it on others.
As a footnote to the film, after the credits, we get to see footage of GG's funeral. His open casket is wailed over by Mohican-spouting fans, his blackened, bloated skull sporting a pair of head phones. In death, as in life, his appearance is brutally uncompromising.
Phillips, who seems unsure what to think about it all, finishes by noting that he had kind of hoped GG would live up to his constant threat, and go out in some glorious fashion, something no one in the rock world could ignore. Instead, he sighs, "He died like a rock-star. In typical rock star fashion."
