Math the Band is an American electronic rock group formed in 2001 in Westford, Massachusetts by Kevin Steinhauser, with Justine Mainville joining in 2007. The band uses vintage analog synthesizers, drum machines, hacked videogame systems and homemade synthesizers to make loud, fast, punk music. The band's style has been sometimes called Nintendocore. The band has performed over 1000 shows throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, and the United Kingdom, touring with bands and artists such as Andrew W.K., Japanther, Wheatus, MC Frontalot, mc chris, MC Lars, and Peelander-Z. Math the Band has been featured in several magazines such as Venus Zine and Keyboard Magazine. They were also featured on NPR Music.

|2013 — January 2008 (single)|
January 2008 - is a single released by Math the Band in November 2013. The song became the first single from the album Stupid And Weird, which was released in 2014.[needs update]
The video was uploaded to Youtube on November 22, 2013. At the beginning it shows a girl, who is playing an arcade machine. Then the mother tries to take her home but her phone rings and while she is speaking on the phone, the girl sneaks away and crawls under an arcade machine and enters a portal through which she finds a forest. There she runs away from animated monsters and kills them with laser shooing sword.
When the final monster (unofficially named "Strongets" by fans) is killed she returns to the arcade (where her mother didn't notice her disappearance) with a large number of prize tickets, which she exchanges for a saxophone as the song starts the saxophone outro.
