* Infamous BlackMetal musician, [[Music/{{Burzum}} Varg Virkenes]], is obviously a Creator/JRRTolkien fan, judging from some of his music, but he's also a huge TabletopRPG nerd. He's specifically mentioned being fond of ''The One Ring'', based on ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' and ''Basic Fantasy'' (a simplified version of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''), and has developed his own RPG, ''MyFaRog.'' He also plays video games and considers ''TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' to be his favorite computer RolePlayingGame.
* Klayton of {{Celldweller}} is an avid gamer, a ''massive'' ScienceFiction {{Geek}}, and quite interested in astronomy... oh, and he [[{{Understatement}} likes]] {{Godzilla}}.

* Underground rapper Music/{{MF DOOM}} is quite possibly one of the most obvious cases. His main persona is basically a hip-hop version of Doctor Doom, almost never appearing without a metallic Doom mask. Nerdy references get dropped in his lyrics throughout, including (but certainly not limited to) ''SuperMarioBros, Franchise/StarTrek, VideoGame/DonkeyKong'', loads and loads of comic book series, ''{{Transformers}}, Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'', and so on. Hell, he even uses some samples from video games and animated series.

* Porter Robinson: where do we even ''begin?'' He's aware of and slightly good at ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'', has cited RPG games as an influence (particularly on his "Worlds" album), made the first prominent commercially-released song to use an English-language {{Vocaloid}}, has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTcjiGu1a_E spliced a bit of]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Song of Storms]] into one of his songs live, and has used clips from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' as part of his visuals during live shows.

And if that wasn't enough, he actually commissioned anime studio Creator/A1Pictures to do the video for his song "Shelter".


Added DiffLines:

* Dubstep producers tend to have pretty nerdy tastes in media, if their choice of vocal samples are of any indication. Midnight Tyrannosaurus, for example, has used samples from, among others, ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'', ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'', ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl'', and ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty''... multiple times.

* Music/{{Buckethead}}, while rarely vocal about himself, is known to be an avid video gamer, comic book fan, ''Franchise/StarWars'' fan, horror movie geek and GiantRobo enthusiast. He's also composed music for one of the MortalKombat movies, recorded a special (and insane) solo for his song "Jordan", when it was included in the second ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' game, and a remix of one of his songs also appears in the latest TwistedMetal game.

*** Zappa's [[TheresNoBInMovie passion for cheap B-movies]], especially monster movies, went far. He referenced a lot of these movies in his lyrics and song titles, including "Cheepnis" from ''Music/RoxyAndElsewhere''. He even gave one of his sons, Ahmet, the middle name Rodan, in reference to ''Film/{{Rodan}}''. This also explains his adoration of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. He and the [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] crew were actually in talks of making a movie together before he died. They also referenced Zappa a lot during their riffs.

** Not only did his signature song, "Party Hard", become a meme on [[ImageBoards 4chan]], but he's a self-professed /b/tard himself. And [[http://twitter.com/#!/AndrewWK/status/17064106292940801 reads Encyclopedia Dramatica.]]
