[SiTH] Clan is a nerdcore Rap quartet from Raleigh, North Carolina.

Formed in 2011, the group leans on Star Wars and video gaming for much of their music. After releasing several demos for free on YouTube, they released their first full album, The Beta, in 2013. Their mixes frequently throw in samples of 8-bit video game sound effects.

Members:

  • Darth Kaedus, a.k.a. Kourtny Cutts
  • Darth Tyranos, a.k.a. The Count
  • Darth Bastila, a.k.a. MariMOD.com
  • Darth Nylus, a.k.a. Zig Zag Zach or 3Z

Tropes in [SiTH] Clan's music:

  • Comics Rule Everything Around Me: It's nerdcore, what did you expect?
    • The group's stage names are all taken from Star Wars and they devoted an entire song, "Sith Lords", to it on The Beta. "Darth Kaedus" references Jacen Solo's Sith name Darth Caedus in Legacy of the Force, "Darth Tyranos" is one letter off from Count Dooku's Sith name in Attack of the Clones, while Darth Bastila and Darth Nylus both reference Knights of the Old Republic: Bastila turns to the Dark Side in KOTOR 1 during the main story, becoming Darth Bastila if Revan joins her, while Nylus references the Force-vampire Darth Nihilus in KOTOR 2.
    • "High Score" references Dragon Ball Z and Mario just in the first stanza.

  • Intercourse with You: "Love Jam", the odd one out on The Beta, is a softer hip-hop number about making love.
  • Murder Simulators: "I'm Violent" is basically a 4-minute Take That! to the entire idea.
  • N-Word Privileges: Yes, they drop the odd "nigga", but only from the two black members.
  • Out-of-Genre Experience:
    • "Love Jam" on The Beta is a soft hip-hop Intercourse with You number coming between two raps about gaming.
    • "Video Game Store" on Pixels to Polygons isn't even a song, it's a Sketch Comedy about shopping for video games.
  • The War on Terror: "Sith Lords" references Kaedus having served in Afghanistan.
