Dave Brockie --
lead singer of the crazy costumed "Beavis & Butthead" worshipped speed metal band Gwar -- is dead at age 50.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Brockie -- a.k.a. Oderus Urungus -- was found early Sunday morning dead, sitting upright in a chair at his Richmond, VA home.

We're told foul play is not suspected ... and one law enforcement sources told us, "There were no drugs found, as far as I know."

Another law enforcement source tells us it was not a suicide.  No note was found. Brockie was found by his roommate.

The band shot to superstardom because their over-the-top horror show music videos were a staple on "Beavis and Butthead" back in the day.

I posted a eulogy for Dave on Facebook. It's a fairly long read so I won't post it here, but it captures a bit of what GWAR and Dave Brockie mean to me. Please take a few minutes to check it out https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10152081793464023&id=507944022&comment_id=29483120&offset=0&total_comments=9&notif_t=feed_comment&ref=m_notif&refid=48

I definitely can't claim to be an OGGWAR. But this guy appears to have been a very special person.
