14 Nerdy Playlists on Spotify

Spotify playlists with everything from Buffy to Nintendo, from Harry Potter to Disney, and everything in between! There's sure to be a playlist or 7 to get you through your workday.

With nerds in the mainstream on shows like The Big Bang Theory and in the movies with Star Trek remakes and more, it’s now cool to be a nerd. A 2015 survey by YouGov.com proves that the term nerd is no longer an insult, especially with the younger generation.

Some survey participants would actually be happy to be called a nerd. Wil Wheaton told Reader’s Digest in a 2014 interview that “[i]t’s awesome to be a nerd.”

Did you just call me a nerd THANK YOU

To some people, music can be easily broken down into phrases and notes, until it’s just a single vibration at a specific pitch, manipulated and strung together to create an equation that can be recreated. 

Some people don’t give it much thought one way or the other. 

Still, others find the deeper meaning, looking far beyond to what the notes represent and how they make them feel.

But what does music have to do with being a nerd?  To us nerds, these deeper feelings help connect us to something larger – one big, accepting community. A community that loves stories. 

And what story isn’t complete without an epic musical soundtrack? 

You can take your stories anywhere with these 14 nerdy playlists on Spotify, which can be listened to just about anywhere you’ve got an internet connection.
