An Interview with Ninja Sex Party: Celebrating 10 Years

NINJA SEX PARTY has four original albums, NSFW, STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM, ATTITUDE CITY (#1
Billboard Comedy), and COOL PATROL (#1 Billboard Comedy, #1 Billboard Independent, #2 Billboard
Rock, #21 Billboard Top 200), as well as three cover albums, UNDER THE COVERS (#17 Billboard Top 200,
#3 Billboard Rock), UNDER THE COVERS VOLUME II (#19 Billboard Top 200, #2 Billboard Rock, #1
Billboard Independent, #4 Billboard Top Album Sales), and the upcoming UNDER THE COVERS VOLUME
III. Dan is one of the co-stars of the YouTube gaming channel GAME GRUMPS, and Brian is a former
theoretical physicist who left a professorship to work on Ninja Sex Party full time.
Since Ninja Sex Party’s inception in 2009, the band has performed sold-out shows across the US and
Australia, released more than 40 music videos, garnered over 1.25 million YouTube subscribers, and was
Billboard’s top selling Comedy Artist of 2018. In October 2019, on the way to a European tour, the band
will celebrate its 10th anniversary by playing the Credit Union 1 Arena in Chicago, IL, their first-ever
arena show. Along with Arin "Egoraptor" Hanson from Game Grumps, Dan and Brian are also in the
band STARBOMB, which performs comedy hip hop songs about video games.
One of Cool Patrol’s standout tracks is “Danny Don’t You Know”, a hilarious but heartfelt pep talk Danny
Sexbang delivers to his awkward, nerdy younger self — played in the video by Stranger Things star (and
longtime NSP fan) Finn Wolfhard — promising him that things will get better as he gets older and learns
to unleash his inner “spandex butterfly.” “That ties in the more serious side of what we’re doing,” Danny
says. “It’s a celebration,” Brian adds. “We’re these two guys that grew up weird and stayed weird, and
now that’s working in our favor as opposed to, you know, people beating us up for it.”
Maybe that running theme of celebrating the nerds, geeks and outsiders that runs through all of Ninja
Sex Party’s music explains the devotion of their massive fan base — over 1.25 million YouTube
subscribers and 710,000 Twitter followers strong. “We did not anticipate how emotionally invested the
fans would become,” Danny says. “It gives us the sense of, ‘Oh, good, we’re doing something that
matters.’ It’s not just stupid. It’s stupid and meaningful.’”
