The Dork Anthem: Yeah, I Believe in Magic!

The Dork Anthem

When I stumbled on this this morning, I though that it would be another poorly composed amateur nerd-themed song, but boy was I wrong. Dave and Brian‘s “The Dork Anthem” has to be one of the most awesome music video I’ve listened to so far this year.

I only have one problem with the name of the song… I mean, have you looked up the definition of “dork” recently?

USA pejorative slang for a quirky, silly and/or stupid, socially inept person, or one who is out of touch with contemporary trends. Often confused with nerd and geek, but does not imply the same intelligence level. [Source: Wikipedia]

Maybe they should have named the song “The Geek Anthem” instead? It would certainly have sounded a bit less derogatory that way, wouldn’t you say?
