It's so nerdy that I enjoy it this and I do. Not. CARE.

You think that's nerdy?
I bought Rick Astley's Whenever You Need Somebody two days ago. In vinyl. I'm 18.
Also, I keep this in my music library, and regularly listen to it.

Considering most people wouldn't admit to enjoying:

a.) Video game music (especially to a game over two decades old)
b.) Jazz
c.) Covers of both of the above

Yeah...I consider it nerdy. Admittedly, it requires rather specific knowledge and enjoyment of something that's likely older than you are.

Here's more of their work. A cover of one of my favorite tunes from the original Sonic the Hedgehog game (even older still):

I'd respectfully disagree. Ok, video games are nerdy, but jazz? In my experience jazz, while indeed horrendously niche, is frowned upon mainly because jazz listeners are seen as mildly pompous and arrogant about their music preferences (they enjoy "cultured music", you know). People whose attitude to music reflects "connoisseurs"' attitude towards wine: looking down on those with "cheaper" tastes, or even pretending to have more "refined" tastes in order to be able to do so. Whether that's true or not is of course irrelevant.
Now, what you're really looking for is a genre time forgot. A genre people grew out of. A genre 99% of people relegated into the "What the hell were we thinking" box.
Basically, what I'm saying is, chiptune Righeira.

Chiptune music would be nerdy for the same reason the stuff I mentioned is: it requires pretty inside knowledge of something made a long time ago that most people wouldn't even know about, much less admit to enjoying.

Indeed. You'll admit that chiptune disco outnerds jazz chiptune by a mile.
Though really, that's a pointless debate. "Other people like it" isn't a feature.
