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.

If you want to stay out of Nerdcore Hip Hop, steer your clear of being one of MC Plus’s professors. A harmless computer science lesson could turn into the beginning of your demise as Plus will diss your syllabus into a potentially damning hip hop anthem.

This yo-yo world champion asserts that authoring these multifarious sounds “will never be more than a hobby,” although he has already performed with MC Frontalot, Beefy, MC Router, MC Lars and Shafer the Darklord.

A man like Jello (née Eric Reed Boucher) should hardly need an introduction on a site designed for hardcore music (and computer) enthusiasts. To do so is like explaining the basics of World of Warcraft ridiculous, right? And yet, here goes
Most of you may know Jello as lead vocalist and lyricist of one of the greatest hardcore punk bands of all time, The Dead Kennedys. This band is responsible for moody and subtle songs like, “California Über Alles,” “Beat the Brat,” and “Too Drunk to Fuck” (a go-to wedding song for countless young couples).

Upon hearing the name, it’s understandable that you would immediately think “Oh, a radical linear-beam vacuum tube used to produce both low-power reference signals for superheterodyne radar receivers as well as high-power carrier waves for communication. Obviously.” But Ultraklystron is no tube.
