People who say they aren't familiar with Hamilton or barely know about it -- you do realize that Lin-Manuel Miranda is a lifelong Al fan right?? There's video of him performing lip syncing and dancing in his living room to Isle Thing when he was 11. He just spoke to Rolling Stone about the amazing birthday where he got all of the 80s albums on cassette. He is truly One Of Us; he just happens to be really famous.
All Al fans should check out the Hamilton soundtrack ASAP. Al's influence on Lin's songwriting is quite evident!

My sentiments exactly about Lin-Manuel. Honestly, I really wouldn't be surprised if he was a lurker on here or even active poster while just making sure to be guarded with their information.

Honestly, of all of Al's close personal literal friends, Lin-Manuel has the most adorable heart on sleeve attitude about his friendship with our boy. Whenever I see them together or if Lin starts talking about it it's as if his ten year old self is jumping out to scream "This is a dream come true!"

I'd ... I'd love for him to pop on here to do an "Ask Me Anything (About My Al Fandom") on here or /R/WeirdAl

It's no "White & Nerdy," but I still have high hopes for this song charting decently on the Billboard Hot 100 in the next week or so.

If a polka makes the top 100 of anything, I think we can officially declare the death of the music industry :lol:
Well, this week's charts were released today, and "The Hamilton Polka" failed to appear anywhere on the Hot 100. I'm eating my words now, and what a bitter taste it is.

Well, it did hit the #23 on the Digital Music Charts, and #1 on the comedy charts, so that's gotta count for something!

TMBJon went to California State Senator Ben Allen's Hamilton-themed birthday party on 3/10/2018, and did the impossible: He performed The Hamilton Polka in its entirety.

This video deserves much more attention (and praise) than it's been getting so far!

Just saw this on FB: https://youtu.be/4ImE7YgnobU" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I've noticed there are some rules about posting certain types of live videos, etc. So, no worries if this needs to be removed.

Should of gone through "We Are The Hits" a YouTube cover song network. you don't need to sign up with a contract. You upload the cover and you can legally have it on YouTube and even monetize it. The fee is split between the YouTuber and the publishers,writers etc
