There have been so many Star Wars fan videos, it takes a fair bit of creativity to really get people excited about them. To wit, here’s some classical music. It’s one guy, playing two guys, playing the cello, dressed as Jedis, with lightsaber bows. Boom. There it is. There’s also cool cameos from Chewie on third cello and Darth Vader as a particular Forceful music critic. Oh, and the musical arrangement of the classic Star Wars score is pretty good to. Click play and enjoy.
Or your Zune, if you have a Zune, did anyone actually ever have a Zune?
Let’s face it, the mainstream music scene is a wasteland of terrible premanufactured pop bands meant to sell products more than perform music. As we go through this crazy think called life it is hard enough to find a decent soundtrack to it on the radio. Couple that with our unique tastes as nerd,s geeks, and freaks and sometimes you have to work harder than a cat trying to bury a turn on a marble floor to find something worth listening to. Where is our music? We are here to help.
Nerds rock, so do geeks and we’re going to prove it. The following ten acts cover the spread of Nerd Rock, Hip Hop and, music in general. Some you may know, some will be new to you. ALL should be enjoyed.
There are a lot of bad movies floating around, and there are a lot of bad songs that go along with them. Action films — particularly those from the 1980s — have many of the worst soundtracks, and yet some of our most iconic verses have come from Rocky, The Karate Kid and so forth. Did any of the Members Only-jacket-wearing producers at the time know this would happen? Of course not. Will they take credit for our love of cheesy lyrics and guitar solos? Absolutely.
After the jump, check out 10 oddly mesmerizing songs from the action films of yesteryear. Fair warning: these songs will suck up valuable brain space, and you’ll be singing them for hours.
If there is one thing that kicks off the weekend here at the International Nerd Bastards Inc. World Publishing Headquarters and Waffle House, it’s fresh Star Wars related music. A second thing would be MORE Star Wars related music!
Want Chewbacca Gangsta Rap? You got it! The coolest rendition of the Imperial March played on out dated technology you will see? We’ve got that for you too, right after the Jump.
New from Adam WarRock,”the internet’s foremost comic book rapper,” comes an album of hip-hop inspired by the Joss Whedon television series Firefly, and its spin-off feature Serenity. With the assistance of KHill and the ThoughtCriminals, WarRock has put together a collection of songs based on the characters, stories and themes of Whedon’s cult classic. You can order the album through Warrock’s website, and listen to some hits from The Browncoats Mixtape below. Probably not on the album: “Browncoat’s Delight”, “Fuck the Alliance” and “The Message.” Give it a spin, and let us know what you think.
Ah, the theme to Doctor Who. No matter the variation, that electric synthesised composite, which evokes an eerie sense of adventure, gets me all juiced up. A TV tune I can replay time and time again. It’s right up there with Remy Zero and their song “Save Me” from Smallville.
Doctor Who has been on for damn near 50 years and in that time the title sequence has gone through a number of changes. It’s music, logo, fonts and other visuals have evolved.Today’s video is a complete history of those revisions— with commentary! — showing how it’s changed while still remaining faithful.Maybe I’m just of fan of Doctor Who, or maybe I just get off on TV title sequences, but I find it fascinating to see how all the incarnations of the Doctor were introduced, how the decades influenced the fonts used, the style of music, the graphics..etc. Nah, I just got a fetish for title sequences (as I say with my dick in hand).
If you’ve spent any time on the interwebz you’ve probably run into a few Pogo mixes. Pogo? Yes, Pogo. The brilliant re-mixer, known in the real world as Nick Bertke, is the creator of such gems as: ‘Upular‘ (Pixar Remix), ‘Skynet Symphonic‘ and ‘Murmurs of Middle-Earth‘. What Pogo does sounds simple enough, but by sampling hundreds of different movies and television shows he creates phenomenal bits of music. His latest remix might be his best yet.
This is the video for my track ‘Bloom‘, a patchwork of vocals and musical chords from various Disney films. I recorded the harp sample from ‘Sleeping Beauty’, and a series of chords from ‘A.I: Artificial Intelligence’ to form the base of the chorus. The vocals are sampled from Disney films, each of which are illustrated in this video.
It’s Friday morning, you’re groggy, the coffee still hasn’t kicked in. Tune in, drop out and let ‘Bloom’ take you into the weekend.
So you know that really expensive Captain America movie that’s coming out? You do, well skip that shit and check out Captain America’s Burlesque Adventure from the Peekaboo Revue instead. This take on Marvel’s first super hero stars Beth Kellnoire as Cap. Ginger Leigh as Bucki, Joey Martini as the Red Skull and Christa D’agger as ‘Capitan France’. Captain America and comedy, who knew?
Shot live at Asbury Lanes in NJ, and World Cafe Live in Philly. PA this is a show for the older audiences, as in NSFW and certainly not meant for the eyes or ears ofchildren. You just don’t expect language from women like that, even young Bucki knocks out a few f-bombs that are hilarious in this. The real twist is the Redd Skull, from Criminal mastermind to let’s say…comical addition really makes the show. He almost steals the it away from the rest of the cast, he’s a true villain even on the stage.
It’s beyond me why, as of this moment, that this video only has 78 views on Youtube. Viewership should jump now after this gets out, it’ll be like that Rebecca Black video but actually worth watching. If Spider-man: Turn off the Dark gets canceled again maybe they’ll put this on Broadway instead.

Seattle, Washington’s very own “Geek Rockers” Kirby Krackle are at it again with a brand new music video, the fourth from their E for Everyone Album. Their third animated video, once again animated by Betsy Lee, this video relies heavily on Green Lantern Hal Jordan kick some serious space ass. Nerd points to Kyle and Jim for having the whole band animated in the video.
Power by will, sound from Gibson
This should be included in the Green Lantern soundtrack, if not at least give it a part in the special features for the DVD. How many bands like a comic book character to write songs about them? Not many but these guys do it with class.
A news and entertainment blog for nerd pop culture. We are vulgar, debaucherous, and funny bastards that pilfer the internet (or interwebz, if you like) for the news you need so that you don't have to. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll often shake your fist in an angry fury but your time here is worth the price of admission (which is free for those of you not paying attention)
