Did you ever collect Garbage Pail Kids cards growing up? Or maybe even still collect them as an adult? Because if so, it’s your lucky day. Some of your favorite musicians are getting the Topps treatment, including Andrew WK and GWAR.

It’s all courtesy of Riot Fest, which kicks off this weekend (Sep 16-18) in Chicago. The festival recently got their own Garbage Pail Kids Series that they’ll be selling at Riot Fest Chicago in limited quantities.
