My boyfriend Sean recently turned me into a big fan of MC Hawking, a fictional rap group that pays tribute to genius Steven Hawking and all things scientific. The music is a hilarious combination of old school hip hop beats and a synthetic/computerized voice (reminiscent of the voice computer Hawking uses) spewing out witty pro-science lyrics. Ken Leavitt-Lawrence made an animated music video for one of the songs on MC Hawking’s latests album “A Brief History of Rhyme”, called “What we need more of is science”. The video is pretty funny, as are the lyrics. I find the “Fuck the Creationist” song the best by far, however. Warning for vulgar language and possible offensive content!
Some choice rhymes include:
Fuck the damn creationists, those bunch of dumb-ass bitches,
every time I think of them my trigger finger itches.
They want to have their bullshit, taught in public class,
Stephen J. Gould should put his foot right up their ass.
The cosmos is expanding every second, every day,
but their minds are shrinking as they close their eyes and pray.
They call their bullshit science like the word could give them cred,
if them bitches be scientists then cap me in the head.
If you like the video, I urge you to buy an MC Hawking CD (or two or three)! At the very least, check out the website
