-Pioneers of the late 90’s Pop-Punk and Geek Rock movements, Nerf Herder are perhaps best known for their powerful theme to the iconic Joss Whedon TV show, Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Formed in Santa Barbara, California, in 1994, Nerf Herder was signed to major label Arista Records soon after their ironic tribute “Van Halen” stormed the Modern Rock charts in 1996. The video for their follow-up single, “Sorry”, featured Mark Hamill and Miguel Ferrer, and played regularly on MTV. Following years saw the band touring the world multiple times, and releasing a number of albums on various labels, including esteemed indie punk label Fat Wreck Chords and novelty powerhouse Oglio Records.
The current band features founding members Parry Gripp and Steve Sherlock, with newer members Linus Dotson and Ben Pringle. Nerf Herder’s 5th album Rockingham is an explosion of geekness with songs like “At The Con,” a song written after a performance at DragonCon last year, “Ghostbusters III,” a lamenting tune about how the sequel will never be released, and “I’m The Droid (You’re Looking For),” which is made entirely of lines from Star Wars and was recorded at Skywalker Ranch.
Members: Agent Ion O’Clast (keyboards/chaos engineer), Major Jimmy Boom (drums), Commander Angel Nova (guitar/vocals), Leftenent. AR7 (guitar/vocals), Professor Greg Arius (keyboard/effects), Atom Bomb (bass)

“These guys aren’t like anything you’ve seen or heard before…I saw Phenomenauts play in both New York City and San Francisco; each time the place was jam-packed with people chanting “Science and honor!” A few dozen were dressed as robots, and endless streams of chicks looked like they’d just landed in from an R-rated Jetsons episode. Fanfare of that sort doesn’t happen by coincidence.”
“A band that lives, loves and rocks on the grand scale of the cosmos ”
