!!Notable Nerdcore acts include:

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MC_Frontalot MC Frontalot]]: Regular at the PennyArcade Expo, and the guy who coined the term in early 2000. Was featured on the ''VideoGame/InTheGroove'' games and has several songs on ''VideoGame/FlashFlashRevolution''; also has crosspromotions with ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing''.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beefy_(artist) Beefy]]: also a webcomic artist and Flash animator, Beefy, more often than not, raps about his mixed Latino/Caucasian heritage (he's a "Whitesican") and periodic poverty.
* Music/{{Voltaire}}'s album ''[=BiTrektual=]'' is mostly filk songs about Star Trek and Star Wars, but one of the songs "Worf's Revenge" is pure unadulterated nerdcore.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MC_Hawking MC Hawking]]: The stage name of Ken Leavitt-Lawrence. Using the now-defunct text-to-speech program "Willow Talk" and with the help of DJ Doomsday for the beats, he blends traditional gangsta rap with advanced scientific topics. His name and act are a parody of -- and have been repeatedly praised by -- Stephen Hawking.
* MC Lars is considered by some to be nerdcore, although he claims his genre is [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly Post-Punk Laptop Rap]]
** MoodWhiplash: On the album This Gigantic Robot Kills, there's a [[MoodWhiplash break in the usual hilarity]] for a TearJerker song about his friend's suicide. Then it jumps back right into the usual funny Nerdcore rap.

** ClusterFBomb: "Fuck This Song," which consists mainly of the titular word, and secondarily of LampshadeHanging
* [[http://www.optimusrhyme.com/ Optimus Rhyme]]: As the name suggests the band is largely themed around {{Transformers}} including (but not limited to) songs from the perspective of Transformers on earth including a conflict between the two camps of AutoBeats and Whackacons. The stage names of the band members are also [[ThemeNaming Transformer references]]: Wheelie Cyberman, Powerthighs, Stumblebee and Grimrock.

* Music/TwoSkinneeJs have been doing nerdcore music, off and on, since 1991. Their biggest hit, "Riot Nrrrd", was created as a nerd anthem of sorts, and other songs in their repertoire touch on subject matter such as being afraid to talk to girls, ''Star Wars'', ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'', martial arts films, and Pluto's status as a planet.
* Music/{{Area 11}}: Not only being part of the Yogscast (partially), they're basically a geeky band. For example, their first album (All The Lights In The Sky) feautures 11 songs, with 6 of them having some kind of reference to an anime: two songs for ''Anime/CodeGeass'', one for ''Manga/ElfenLied'', one for ''Manga/DeathNote'', one for ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' and one for ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Even thought it's technically Power Pop, still, it's pretty darn impressive.
* Creator/{{Beefy}}: also a webcomic artist and Flash animator, Beefy, more often than not, raps about his mixed Latino/Caucasian heritage (he's a "Whitesican") and periodic poverty.
* Battle rapper Music/HenryBowers is a Swedish example.

Nerdcore is a subgenre of HipHop; the term "Nerdcore" is a portmanteau of "Nerd" and "Hardcore". Music that can be considered Nerdcore usually involves subjects which most [[{{Muggle}} "normal"]] people would consider...well, ''nerdy'', such as ScienceFiction, {{Anime}}, and others. Nerdcore isn't automatically HipHop; nerdcore had clear influences from geek culture as well, including geek rockers like Music/TheyMightBeGiants, parodists like Music/WeirdAlYankovic (who released "It's All About The Pentiums" in 1999 and "White & Nerdy" in 2006), and others. Despite these influences, Nerdcore has separated itself from other types of nerdy music thanks to an unofficial list of criteria that has evolved among fans and artists. Aside from making hip-hop about geeky things, Nerdcore is considered to be an 'Opt-in' genre. Only artists who consider themselves to be "Nerdcore" should have the label attached to their music.

* You can't talk nerdcore without mentioning [[http://www.mchawking.com/ MC Hawking]] - Stephen Hawking, theoretical physicist and gangsta rapper, rapping about Quake, Entropy, and Evolution. Not done by Hawking, but Word Of God is that Hawking does like it.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/area11band Area 11]]: Not only being part of the Yogscast (partially), they're basically a geeky band. For example, their first album (All The Lights In The Sky) feautures 11 songs, with 6 of them having some kind of reference to an anime: two songs for CodeGeass, one for ''Manga/ElfenLied'', one for Manga/DeathNote, one for ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' and one for TengenToppaGurrenLagann. Even thought it's technically Power Pop, still, it's preety darn impressive.
