Parry Gripp and I talk about his early years, his love of RUSH, what it was like touring with Weezer while they supported "Pinkerton" and how he created the "nerdcore" musical subgenre in the mid-90s. We also talk about how winning an Emmy for his song “I’m Not Very Nice" from the Disney show "The 7D" both changed and did not change his life. He explains why Nerf Herder stopped touring as much as they did in the 90s, but talks about their upcoming album. We also brainstorm on a future Parry Gripp / MC Lars collab. Oh shoot! Awesome episode!
