511VXKPD1DL. SL160  Movie soundtracks: Music for a Summer of GeekThe sun is here, the barbecues are warming up, and drinks are cooling down, and friends are coming over for the annual parties and get-togethers that proudly show that geeks can have fun outside of a cinema screen or away from a console (I swear we can). Music is an integral part of that geek party atmosphere, so what should be on the aural menu?

Old favourites are the key to soundtracks that every geek in the place will know and love. The Clerks soundtrack and Clerks 2 are a great starting point, full of songs that are just geeky enough for the average film fan to know the tunes. The Breakfast Club and Star Wars are also awesome choices. More?

I swear the other two never happened!), The Lost Boys (one of the best soundtracks ever released), Lord of the Rings, and pretty much anything from the cult TV files.

MC Frontalot- Classic album now just $5

May 08, 2009 By: Geek Category: Geek Music

61S2TSHKB5L. SL160  MC Frontalot  Classic album now just $5One of the best albums we’ve heard in the realms of geek music is MC Frontalot’s ‘Nerdcore Rising’. Not familiar with Nerdcore? It’s Hip Hop without (Most of) the misogyny and boasts lyrics and themes based around geek culture, comics, science fiction and gaming. We’re not generally hip-hop fans, but MC Frontalot is a firm favourite with the YourGeekness staff. Plus, that classic album is now only 5 dollars to download! (Cheers to Frontalot himself for putting that on his Twitter feed). With classics like ‘Goth Girls’ and the awesome theme tune he did for the Penny Arcade comics, you’re in for a geek treat. Check it out.
