InfoSec can be fun, with the right attitude:
Yes I know it’s a bit old, but I stumbled on it again and couldn’t resist because it seems to provoke some kind of nerdgasm amongst techies. Funny as hell and incredibly well done.

The song as a whole is not that great, but the lyrics are geeky enough. A couple of juicy verses:
I'll chown your home and take your access away Comin' straight outta Stanford, ain't nobody tougher, Control-X, Control-C, I'll discard your fuckin' buffer. You're outside your scope, son, close them curly brackets, 'Cause I drop punk-ass bitches like a modem drops packets.You're the tertiary storage; I'm the L1 cache.With my finger on the trigger I run ./configure Yo, this package is big, but MY package is bigger.And I do a bounds check before I write to an array.

“My flow is so intense, I’ll overload your buffer, corrupt your stack pointer, making all your data suffer.”
Do I seem bored? Neah. Just for fun! :-)
