But after listening to the third track, “Nerdgasm,” I realized they’re not a Christian band at all — just four goofy, kinda nerdy, likable dudes. And we do need those in the world, including for romantic montages on flashback episodes of The Big Bang Theory.
With the lyrics “I get to fight the girl of my dreams and her name’s Chun Li,” the aforementioned “Nerdgasm” is one of the few songs that isn’t a Weezer-like pop ditty about love, whether unrequited, rejected or long-lost.
In “Pining Over You,” the guys are “brokenhearted ever since we parted,” while in “Too Late,” they’re waiting for a girl to get over a guy she just can’t get over.
Even likable guys have their limits, as the final track, “I Don’t Really Miss You,” gets assertive, or at least admirably tries. But they can’t stay mad at you, girl. Then they wouldn’t be likable anymore. —Louis Fowler
