Here at GeekDad, we tend to take note of birthdays from the big names in the greater geek community. From Nintendo to Dr. Seuss to Wil Wheaton, we like to salute our own on their big day. As such, let it be known that today the originator of “post-punk laptop rap,” the one and only MC Lars, turns 27.
Lars is busy preparing for a UK tour with Bowling for Soup, and GeekDads on that side of the pond are certainly encouraged to catch a show if possible. And everyone should pick up his latest full-length This Gigantic Robot Kills, a nerdy hip-hop opus featuring everyone from Weird Al to MC Bat Commander of The Aquabats.
Let us take this time to reflect upon all the fantastic music he has produced. More importantly, let’s not forget his foremost contribution to GeekParents: providing us with an easy way to introduce our children to the classics of American literature.
