If you were to ask MC Lars, he’d tell you that he doesn’t make Nerdcore music; he’s makes Post-Punk Laptop Rap. You might have to get a screen guard for that it sounds messy.
MC Lars is prolific and successful. Evidence: He has put out five albums over the past eight years and he has toured with such bands as The Matches, Simple Plan, Bolwing for Soup, Gym Class Heroes, Say Anything, Streetlight Manifesto, Suburban Legends, Patent Pending, Fightstar, MC Frontalot, and Wheatus. Limp Bizkit, however, is still waiting for the phone call.

Is it any surprise that one of the best artists on the nerdcore scene regularly works for the Cartoon Network? Nothing like a little Aqua Teen Hunger Force all up in your badass mother f_ckin’ beats.
MC Chris somehow pulls off a mash-up of: 1) hardcore hip-hop image, 2) high-pitched vocals, and 3) geek credentials. Think Nas on helium, with a few extra Boba Fett references. He’s prolific too.

With titillating tracks more infectious than a Sub7 Trojan horse, this most “awesomest beat smith” and avid dictionary/thesaurus user is best known as MC Frontalot’s righteous remixer. Hailing from the land of Alexander Graham Bell, Wolverine and Pamela Anderson, this thumping Canadian, with a name actually intended for an unrealized boy band spoof in college, has been dubbed the Timbaland of Nerdcore hip-hop here and in galaxies far, far away.

Move aside Lara Croft and Bastila Shan, the new goddess of Nerds has hacked your throne and claimed the universe with your gibs still hanging off her light saber. If the name evokes mega pixilated naughty nurse thoughts in your virtual memory, then you’ve uploaded correctly.
“Lets play spin the bottle – do you look like Harry Potter?
My kisses never miss, you’ll be reduced to Bantha fodder.”

Do not make eye contact
repeat, do not make eye contact when the genius king of pop parody humbly mingles with us mere humans. Weird Al is NOT a nerdcore artist (he has a separate Kingdom of Yankovicite on Planet Tatooine) but is revered by nerdcorites everywhere. This accordion junkie and satirist prodigy with ringlets ‘straight outta Lynwood’ is best known for his farcical songs that deconstruct pop culture often lampooning the too-earnest tracks of his contemporaries.
This caricaturing National Forensic League Scholar has sold more than 12 million albums, blasting every other comedy act in history out of orbit! He’s recorded more than 150 parody and original songs and has performed more than 1,000 live shows.
