During his debut Saturday Night Live hosting gig in 2016, everyone's favorite Game of Thrones cast member Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannisterrapped about space pants with Gwen Stefani. It was amazing, partly because while we'd seen Dinklage sing before, who knew he could get his rap on? Well apparently, no one knew, as the entirety of the Thrones-loving internet is freshly astonished by reports of Dinklage's punk/rap past.

"I was pretty angry back then," Dinklage recently told NME about his time in Whizzy, a punk/rap/funk hybrid band that reportedly sounded something like the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Sadly, there's no audio or video from Dinklage's days in Whizzy, but thanks to Getty Images, we can at least get a look at the motley crew of musicians he rolled with as far back as 1993.

Hell, Dinklage was even playing the trumpet during Whizzy sets?!

As exciting as this all is, this isn't the first time Dinklage has spoken on Whizzy. In Playboy's May 2013 issue, Dinklage fondly remembered getting some gnarly scars during his time as a member of Whizzy, which sounds pretty insane, to be honest.

"I have a pretty big scar that runs from my neck to my eyebrow," Dinklage began. "I was in a band called Whizzy for many years in New York. ... We played a show at CBGB, and I was jumping around onstage and got accidentally kneed in the temple. I was like Sid Vicious, just bleeding all over the stage. Blood was going everywhere. I just grabbed a dirty bar napkin and dabbed my head and went on with the show."

"We didn’t care much at the time about personal safety," he continued. "We were smoking and drinking during our shows, and one time my bass player fell off the back of his amp because he passed out. It was one of those bands."

Sounds pretty fucking lit. Who's got the throwback Whizzy live show footage, though?!
