With their breakout song, Hail to the Geek, Dallas-based rockers Deaf Pedestrians are striking a chord with nerdy fans, who relate to geeky lyrics like: I play Dungeons and Dragons/ I got a 13th level halfling fighter thief/ Got seven hit die on my backstab/ Sometimes you know its good to be a geek.
Frontman Chuck Parker wrote the song about his own nerdy hobbies, and says, I didnt realize thered be so many people whod say, Hell yeah, nerd power!
And the dorky ditty is taking off its already been featured on shows like Beauty and the Geek and My Super Sweet 16.
And while Parker would rather watch Battlestar Galactica than the shows that feature his song, hes grateful he can get his dweeby message to the masses.
Parker says, Reality TV is satanic, but Im not going to complain. Ive been digging through my couch cushions for change, so Ill take it!
Deaf Pedestrians debut album, ...And Other Distractions, hits shelves February 12. For more info, check out myspace.com/deafpedestrians.
