This is a pretty good length to go in nerdraging.

Between upsetting the "games are art" crowd with his video about Braid and now this, I love Soulja Boy even more.

5 stars to counteract the inevitable bitching about what a stupid urban Soulja is from people who don't get that he's supposed to be funny.

The worst thing is that this is one of the better nerdcore songs I've heard. The entire subgenre is an embarrassment. Also, what is there, like seven homophobic references in a two and half minute song? Nice.

Also, bonus horrible nerd commentary: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/ir/yrt/specials/27559- yrot-anime-by-soulja-boy

I was pretty unhappy when I found out that playing songs from my old hip hop project on, say, Last.fm gives the listener a bunch of unrelated 'nerdcore' songs.

I'm much MUCH more of a geek than a nerd, anyway.

NewHeavenSalesman
why did you do that to me, man.

I forgot to mention that the current music column for somethingawful, while pretty awful most of the time, did a pretty good sendup of nerdcore. As an extra bonus, the first page features a live performance from the guy above, who looks basically how'd you expect.

I figured nerds could come up with better comebacks than this. Are we sure these aren't faux nerds?

This is dorkcore; nerds are smart.

nerds back in the day were nerds because they knew too much about a subject... nerds these days are being usurped by people who just care too much about a subject and know hardly anything about it

RomancingTrain
Nerds these days!

Nerds are smart and have no social skills and they also care more about Star Trek than having sex.

That's what I saw on big-bang theory.

Disappointed to hear nerdcore rappers talking about how hetero they are and how homo their rivals are, going to the extent of using those terms rather than just calling things "gay." I thought nerdcore was supposed to be about being smart despite being socially-awkward, not about digging up horrible stereotypes that have nothing to do with what they're mad about.

MC Frontalot, for example, *celebrates* gays and others who are different, and never says disparaging things about entire groups that he isn't part of. Most nerdcore rappers are MC Frontalot wannabes who don't actually understand the genre they're trying to imitate.

5 stars for nerd rage.

I don't think all rappers in the genre share that same idea. It would be like saying that in recent years that the black metal genre wouldn't be homophobic due to Ghaal from Gorgoroth being openly proud of being a homosexual but black metal kids typically regard gays as lesser people despite a lot of bm bands just imitating Gorgoroth. Same goes for metal in general. Lots of metalheads hate Judas Priest for Halford being gay despite them being a pioneer of the genre.

P.O.S of Doomtree isn't nerdcore but has a line explaining why he doesn't say "faggot" but on the other end Eminem says it all the time, goes into detail about how he wants to kill homosexuals and turns around and says he doesn't mean it but still does it.
Nerdcore seems to be more of a novelty anyway and garners quit a bit of the "gamer grrrl" mentality these days.

Man, I remember nerd-core back in the day being a movement that had something to SAY.

What has happened to this industry?

MC Hawking would school this fool.

Why is this guy even pissed? I read the Soulja lyrics and couldnt even decide if they were pro or anti Anime, because it was to unintelligible to even read.

A 2Pac/Biggie mutually-annihilating feud would be the ideal outcome here.
