MC Lars (playing LPR Saturday, August 15 with Wheatus, Schaffer The Darklord and Hand Job Academy) recently released a new video for “The Ballad of Hans Moleman,” a track inspired by the recurring “Simpsons” character that will appear on his forthcoming The Zombie Dinosaur LP.
MC Lars channels Hans Moleman’s story through his signature “post-punk laptop rap” the same way he’s previously taken on literary subjects in songs like “Rapbeth,” “Ahab” and “Mr. Raven.”
“With references to Artie Ziff, footballs to the groin, and that time Mr. Burns thought Moleman was a leprechaun, ‘The Ballad Of Hans Moleman’ is a tribute to The Simpsons at its oddest,” writes The A.V. Club‘s Marah Eakin.
