So you have the Zelda opening a chest as your text message ring tone, can hum the theme of Mario on command, and know the lyrics to the Halo theme; but have you ever wondered where it all came from? The soundtrack of nerd music does not just come video games but from a variety of artists, pop culture, and supreme court decisions. I will take you from the origins of music itself and carry you to today's hottest artists and explain how we got here and where the musical genre is going.
