Awesome Sauce Music Friday! The Monkeys Swinging Up in the Trees Edition
Hello, wonderful readers! It’s Friday, so you know what that means. It’s time for Awesome Sauce Music Friday!
Regular readers of this site can probably tell that my particular taste in music tends toward quirky alt-rock. But we’re going to change pace today. We’re featuring nerdcore hip hop artist MC Frontalot. In 2002, the webcomic Penny Arcade named him their rapper laureate, and has played at every Penny Arcade Expo since 2004. Plus, he has a Muppet connection; he voiced “TP Factory Rapper” in Elmo’s Potty Time.
Say no more! I’m an automatic fan.
Today’s song comes from MC Frontalot’s 2007 album, Secrets from the Future. It’s called “Origin of the Species.” He raps from the perspective of a preacher planning the next battle in the culture war. It’s awesome. The song get’s it totally right. Enjoy!
Thanks to Brandalyn for the tip!
