Across the 3rd Dimension

You don't want to be a hater. You don't want to be that guy at the bar shouting "sell-out" at confused passersby. You don't want to be an underground asshole, but sometimes it's a hard habit to break.

When Chicago bit-poppers I Fight Dragons hit the big time, I think we all feared that a major label would soften their geek rock edge. Admittedly there were some shifts within the band dynamic, but, as anyone who caught them at Nerdapalooza 2011 can attest, they are still very much the group we grew to love in the DIY days of Cool is Just a Number.

And just this week the guys released a brand new video for the track "Save World Get Girl" (from 2011's KABOOM!) via the 3DS's Nintendo Video service. I think we can all agree that represents a nerd caché all its own.
