Nerf Herder

The self-proclaimed nerd rock band Nerf Herder was formed in 1994 by singer/guitarist Parry Gripp, drummer Steve "The Cougar" Sherlock, and bassist Charlie Dennis, taking their name from an epithet in one of the many spats between Princess Leia and Han Solo in The Empire Strikes Back. Based in Santa Barbara, CA, the trio specialized in post-grunge punk-pop full of geeky humor, similar to Weezer crossed with the nervy edge of the Descendents and the snarky pop culture obsession of the Dead Milkmen.

Nerf Herder caught a break when a demo of their song "Sorry" fell into the hands of Lagwagon singer Joey Cape, who was looking for bands to sign to his small independent My Records label. Initially approached only about including "Sorry" on a various-artists compilation, Nerf Herder ended up recording a ten-song eponymous debut for the label, with Cape co-producing. In 1996, a goofy ode to "Van Halen" became a local smash thanks to a San Francisco modern rock radio station, which helped spread the song around the country. Nerf Herder landed a major-label deal with Arista, which remastered and re-released the Nerf Herder album later that year; meanwhile, "Van Halen" became a modern rock radio success around the country. Nerf Herder next recorded the theme song to the WB TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and faded from the public eye thereafter.

When they resurfaced, it was with a new bassist, Pete Newbury (formerly of Ten Foot Pole), and a second guitarist, Dave Ehrlich; Newbury quit soon after, though, to concentrate on his job as a radiologist, and was replaced by Marko 72 for a European tour. Marko also departed quickly, and the band recorded its second album, How to Meet Girls, with Justin Fisher on bass. Completed in the summer of 1999, the record was finally released in early 2000 by the indie label Honest Don's. American Cheese next appeared in August 2002, followed by more touring with yet another new bassist, Ben Pringle. Nerf Herder temporarily called it quits the following year; however, 2005 found the three original members already reuniting to work on a new album, and IV arrived three years later. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

PARRY GRIPP IN THIS BAND
I could tell these guys sucked before they even started singing. Lame wanna be punk!
I like this song but the IV cover one looks funny:)
Put your hands on my cashmere sweater...do n ' t it make you feel better? ;)
Ugh, why isn't How to Meet Girls on here
I never thought I'd see Nerf Herder on Pandora, but here the day has come - and I am happy to hear them! Love this band!
The re-released (Arista) "Nerf Herder" has a different version of "Easy Mark." I haven't researched the reason, but my theory is that it was to make the lyrics sillier (the original lines don't mesh well with the joke-band image "Van Halen" and "Sorry" presented). I have both CDs; I like the overall sound of the re-released album better, but enjoy the original, more serious version of "Easy Mark." You can compare the two versions here: http://www.p l y r i c s . c o m / n / n e r f h e r d e r . h t m l .

Yeah, how can they not have "how to meet girls" and "my ep?"
PS: In college, I hosted a college radio show called "nerf ranch." Woot.
Pandora needs to list the songs from the CDs "My E.P." and "How to Meet Girls".... mostly just the song "Love Sandwich"
