** 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.

'''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.

* TheMerch: His store has all manner of methods to get the word "party" on yourself. Interestingly, his store has gotten rather opportunistic. For instance, there's a bloody-nosed Charlie Sheen on one shirt, and, briefly, there was a shirt with a bloody-nosed Rob Ford. The shirts with a bloody-nosed [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pinkie Pie]] might seem opportunistic, but he's a legit MLP fan. He's helmed panels at brony conventions and even played with the G1 toys as a kid.

Counting records only released in Asia, Andrew WK has put out six albums, although his most famous to this day is ''I Get Wet,'' which has the famous cover of his nose bleeding profusely.[[note]]To get the blood, Andrew initially tried smashing a brick into his face, although that wasn't enough blood. He than added some of the blood of an animal he got from a butcher.[[/note]]
