Dungeons and Dragons is a staple of nerds and geeks everywhere. Playing it has been the standard to which nerds measure each other. In has helped shaped all other RPGs since then, either trying to be like it or trying to not be like it. So I give you a list of music inspired by this classic game.
2. Uncle Lumpy and the Salmon Moose do a little parody of Frosty called Dungeons and Dragons, explaining the D&D to his nephew. I am not sure if this also counts as holiday song.
3. Never Split the Party by Emerald Rose teaches us some important rules about what to do when you are dungeon crawling.
4. Insane Ian takes a break from doing songs about video games to cover table top gaming with Run This Game assisted by Devo Spice and The Stacey
5. 3d6 gives us Damage. Nerd punk song that lets you know, if you did not already know, where the band’s name comes from.
6. Natural 20s by Dual Core is chocked full of both references to D&D and other nerdcore rappers. Great for fans of both.
7. A Band of Orcs is a heavy mithril band, and since I do not care for heavy metal I have not really listen to their music, but everything written about them tells me they belong on here. The band hails from Hirntodia, till summoned by some teens playing a game, and here they learned to harness the power of metal to lay waste to all.
8. More nerdcore with Dice Roll Your Hearts by Alpha Riff. A love song for those who love both Magic: The Gathering and Dungeon and Dragons.
9. This Fantasy World by The Doubleclicks is another love song about love over the gaming table. Though it gets a little offensive.
Honorable Mention goes to A Cloak of Elvenkind by alternative rock band Marcy Playground. I loved this song, the album it comes from, so much in high school.
Well till next time.
