Music Monday: “I’m the One That’s Cool” by Felicia Day and Jed Whedon

As a geek girl, I pretty much love everything Felicia Day does. Embracing her gamer cred, she’s turned being a geek into a career and has created some pretty awesome web series and videos, while taking part in projects that fit her interests like Joss Whedon projects and other niche genre fare.

Today she dropped a new song, “I’m the One That’s Cool” professing that geek is in and everybody needs to deal with it! We are definitely in the Geek Golden Age – just look at all the science fiction/fantasty on TV, all the comic book films breaking records, and the success of conventions like San Diego Comic Con.

Watch the full music video, directed by Jed Whedon, here:

LYRICS:
1ST VERSE:
Oh, no. Don’t pretend I didn’t see
You roll your eyes at my gaming tee
Don’t know if you can read or if you’ve seen
The sweet piece in this week’s Wired magazine
The latest trend has hit its peak
They say that geek’s becomin’ chic
So now you’re out of style as you can be
And I’m in vogue, so you can bite me

To all the ass-hat jocks who beat me up in school
Now I’m the one that’s cool
I’m the one that’s cool
To all the prom queen bitches thinking they still rule
Now I’m the one that’s cool
I’m the one that’s cool

2ND VERSE:
Try to cop my style but I’m the real thing
While you played sports, I played Magic the Gathering
See you pose a part of nerd society
My Aquaman pajamas prove my pedigree
Star Trek: Next Gen every night
Wore a headgear to fix my overbite
Your black-rimmed glasses are prescription free, where as me
I literally can’t see my hand in front of my face

To all the asshat jocks who beat me up in school
Now I’m the one that’s cool
I’m the one that’s cool
To all the prom queen bitches thinking they still rule
Now I’m the one that’s cool
I’m the one that’s cool
And to my eighth-grade crush who pushed me in the pool
Now I’m the one that’s cool
I’m the one that’s cool
You may be tan and fit and rich but you’re a tool
And I’m the one that’s cool
I’m the one that’s cool

3RD VERSE:
Role reversal must be a total drag
But there’s no point, no point for me to humblebrag
I appreciate you for being cruel
I’m burning bright thanks to your rejection fuel
Got my in-jokes you won’t get
Like Honey Badger, Troll Face and Nyan Cat
So now your ballin’ parties seem so dumb
You can Evite me, and I’ll say yes, but I won’t really come

Got my comics
Got my games
All the things you thought were lame
Got my cosplay
Fanfic too
Got you pegged
STFU You
CHORUS

“I’m the One That’s Cool” is brought to you by Knights of Good Productions, the same company that brought you the hit song & video “Do You Wanna Date My Avatar” by Felicia Day and Jed Whedon.
