I tried my best to contain my NSP fanaticism to my Music Monday posts, but then Ninja Sex Party went ahead and launched the amazing new song ‘Danny Don’t You Know’, and I just can’t help but write about it today.
The music video stars Finn Wolfhard of ‘Stranger Things’ fame.
He plays the role of a young Danny Sexbang, before he found himself.
The song depicts Danny going back in time with Ninja Brian, to show a sad young Danny where he is going to end up.
As a beloved rockstar!
The video also features Doctor Sung, Havve Hogan, Lord Phobos and Commander Meouch, members of the Canadian synthwave band ‘Tupper Ware Remix Party’.
TWRP has been acting as NSP’s backing band for a few years now, in addition to making their own music.
It also features Arin Hanson as Danny’s one friend.
Arin and Danny are the two main hosts of the video game let’s play show ‘Game Grumps’ on YouTube, and together with Brian Wecht they form another band, ‘Starbomb’, which I will cover here at a later date.
The let’s player Markiplier also shows up, as a centaur.
This is the most serious song NSP has ever released, but it still has some good jokes peppered in there.
And it also has the best looking music video they have ever made, with stunning visuals.
Everyone who worked on ‘Danny Don’t You Know’ should be extremely proud!
This song speaks so much to me!
I wish I could go back in time, to let myself know that I didn’t need to worry.
To let myself know that I would end up being very happy with my life, and with myself.
That I didn’t need to internally obsess about not having a girlfriend, because I now know that I ended up with the best girl in the world.
And that I did not need to feel self-conscious about being weird, because that weirdness is what fuels my creativity and happiness today.
