'''Andrew WK''' (b. 1979) is a rock vocalist, classically-trained pianist, songwriter, motivational speaker, television personality[[note]]Hosted the Creator/CartoonNetwork show ''Destroy Build Destroy'' and the short-live Creator/{{MTV}} show ''Your Friend, Andrew W.K.''[[/note]] and self-proclaimed "professional partier". Andrew is most famous for his boisterous approach to rock music, characterized by shouted, chanted vocals, multi-layered guitars, huge pop hooks and keyboard flourishes (although he had since tried some experimentation, most notably an album made up of piano instrumentals). He is also famed for his persona - a relentlessly optimistic, somewhat philosophical man with an insatiable desire to motivate, or "party," as he usually refers to it. It is very likely that he is ''the'' biggest CloudCuckoolander in rock.

* '''CloudCuckoolander''': There really is no one quite like him in the modern day music biz. For example, do you know how he got that broken nose up there? ''He smashed his own face against a brick''. That takes balls and a whole lot of lack of common sense.

** His cover of "Soldiers of Sorrow" is, essentially, a cheery upbeat-sounding rock anthem about a soldier horrified at the fact that he's surrounded by death and only survived his battle by killing people just like him.
