In this installment of geek music videos, we’ll see video game related videos, a skewering of the whole “fake geek girls” thing, some oldies that I’ve just discovered, and even a song about KFC. Enjoy!
Insane Ian – “DiG DuG”
Insane Ian must really love Dig Dug; he won’t stop playing it until the cops come and take him away! And even that can’t stop him! Really funny video, and I have to admit that Ke$ha’s “TiK ToK” (the song this is a parody of) is pretty catchy. This version, however, is much better.
Adam WarRock – “Galactica”
Here’s a surprise: as soon as Adam WarRock finished watching BSG, he made a mixtape of music about it. Who’d’ve guessed? Of course it’s awesome, and you should go download it now!
Adam WarRock – “XXXtra Crispy”
Speaking of Adam WarRock, here’s the official video for “XXXtra Crispy,” the KFC song (um, yeah, seriously…). If you missed out on the summer Donation Drive, at least you can check out this track from the EP.
Adam WarRock – “Stark Industries”
So, yeah, let’s just go ahead and include three Adam WarRock videos, another from the Speech Recognition EP. He’s so prolific I’m surprised all of my lists don’t include three new songs by him. In addition to the version of this song about Tony Stark, there’s also a new remastered version that you can download for free.
Jimmy Fallon (and others) – “We Are the World of Warcraft”
Honestly, I’m surprised it took this long for a song with this name to exist. It seems ripe for parody. Leave it to Jimmy Fallon to put it together.
The Gargle Blasters – “Uncertainty”
This is older, but new to me. I discovered it over on Bad Astronomy. It’s a fun little love song that uses physics and astronomy.
Dreamboys – “Bela Lugosi’s Birthday”
Now that Peter Capaldi has been announced as the twelfth Doctor, everyone’s checking out everything he’s ever done. I’m no exception; I’ve already started watching The Thick of It, and I plan on rewatching Torchwood: Children of Earth soon. But for this list, let’s check out a song (there’s not really any actual video, just an album playing) by Capaldi’s band that also featured Craig Ferguson on drums (although I’m not sure the latter is actually on this track). Very ’80s alternative / New Wave.
The Doubleclicks – “Nothing to Prove”
Just in case you somehow missed this one, and just to give it another bump, here’s The Doubleclicks’ entry into the “fake geek girl” debate. See how many geek celebs you recognize, and prepare to tear up when you read the stories.
Shubzilla and Bill Beats – “Wonderful World” (NSFW)
As an introduction to Shubzilla, this is quite, quite cool. I’m really looking forward to seeing her at Nerdapalooza with Bill Beats and Lex Lingo as 9k1.
