On April 15, 2013, Coulton announced that he was working with comic book writer Greg Pak on a graphic novel based on the characters in his songs, called Code Monkey Save World. The project was funded on Kickstarter, and reached its goal within 12 hours.

On August 31, 2013, it was announced that Coulton would be contributing lyrics to The SpongeBob Musical, which premiered in Chicago on June 2016. Coulton composed the opening number “Bikini Bottom Day”, which is reprised multiple times throughout the show as SpongeBob’s main theme. Coulton also contributed to additional lyrics for other musical numbers featured in the show. Along with other musical contributors to the show, Coulton won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Score, and was nominated for Best Original Score for the 72nd Tony Awards.

Instead, Coulton released the single “Baby Got Back (In the Style of Glee)”, a “cover of Glee’s cover of my cover of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s song, which is to say it’s EXACTLY THE SAME as my original version”. Coulton said he would donate the proceeds from all sales until the end of February 2013 to two Glee-related charities: The VH1 Save the Music Foundation, and The It Gets Better Project.


In May 2012, Coulton became the house musician for the NPR game show Ask Me Another. Coulton performs some of his own songs on the show, as well as covers of other songs related to the trivia and puzzle challenges.


In May 2011, Coulton was interviewed on NPR’s popular economics-related program Planet Money. He disclosed that he makes about $500,000 a year from his music despite lacking a record label contract. He expressed gratitude towards his fans for his surprise success, the degree of which he called “absurd”. In a broader discussion of whether or not the internet is good for musicians, Coulton answered in the affirmative, while journalist Frannie Kelley described his success as a “fluke,” comparing it to the unexpected popularity of the Snuggie. Coulton posted a tongue-in-cheek response on his blog about the comparison, saying “to which I say: snarkity snark snark!”


Coulton opened for They Might Be Giants for a few shows of their March 2010 tour. He toured with them again in February 2012.

Coulton had been working on his follow-up to the Thing a Week albums, tentatively titled The Aftermath. He said the title was an umbrella term for non-album tracks released after Thing a Week. On May 25, 2010, Coulton said on his official site that he would work on a new album, to be produced by John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants, and for the first time ever with a full band, including Marty Beller of They Might Be Giants, in a professional recording studio. The resulting album, Artificial Heart, was released on November 8, 2011.


Coulton wrote and performed a song titled “Still Alive” for the ending credits of Valve’s 2007 video game Portal, with vocals by Ellen McLain. On April 1, 2008, Harmonix made this track available as free downloadable content for the game Rock Band. A version with Coulton’s vocals was also included on the Orange Box Original Soundtrack, in addition to the one heard at the end of the game. “Re: Your Brains” made an appearance as an easter egg in Left 4 Dead 2. “Still Alive” has been called “the most influential game music”. In 2011, Coulton followed up the success of “Still Alive” with a new song at the end of Portal 2, “Want You Gone”. He also wrote the song “You Wouldn’t Know” for Lego Dimensions.

A DVD & CD of a concert performed February 22, 2008, at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, entitled Best. Concert. Ever. was released in 2009. At the concert, Coulton played “Still Alive” along with guest “musicians” and geek/celebrities Leo Laporte, Merlin Mann and Veronica Belmont.


Several early podcasters discovered and made regular use of Coulton’s music, notably Adam Curry of the Daily Source Code and The Wizards of Technology. In April 2006, he lent his voice to one such podcast, The Spoilers, in which he and hosts Rick Yaeger and Bill Douthett provided a 2-hour fan commentary for Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Coulton is also known for original pieces such as “Code Monkey”, which was featured on Slashdot on April 23, 2006, and linked from the webcomic Penny Arcade. It was also the theme song for an animated show on G4 called Code Monkeys.

In 2006, Coulton began touring with comedy duo Paul and Storm. Coulton initially opened the concerts, but as his popularity grew, he began headlining.


He was the Contributing Troubadour at Popular Science magazine, whose September 2005 issue was accompanied by a five-song set by Coulton called Our Bodies, Ourselves, Our Cybernetic Arms. He was also the Musical Director for The Little Gray Book Lectures.

From September 16, 2005, to September 30, 2006, Coulton ran “Thing a Week”, during which he recorded 52 musical pieces in an effort to push his creative envelope via a “forced-march approach to writing and recording”; to prove to himself that he could produce creative output to a deadline; and to see whether a professional artist could use the Internet and distribution via Creative Commons to support himself. In a September 2006 interview, he said of the experiment, “In some parts of the country, I’d be making a decent living”. In a February 25, 2008, interview with This Week in Tech, he said that he made more money in 2007 than he did in his last year of working as a programmer, 40% of it from digital downloads and 40% from merchandise and performances.

One of Coulton’s best-known works is his 2005 light-acoustic cover of the Sir Mix-a-Lot hit song “Baby Got Back”. Coulton wrote a new melody for the song which was copied without permission (including his original line “Johnny C’s in trouble”) in 2013 by the American TV series Glee. Like Coulton’s other work, he released his cover version of the song under a Creative Commons 3.0 license, which requires users to attribute the work to him, and forbids all commercial use of it. The show’s lawyers contended that they were within their legal rights, and that Coulton should be happy for the exposure, though Coulton received no acknowledgement or credit. Coulton’s own lawyers told him that as he only used a compulsory license to make the cover, it would be difficult to sue for damages using the argument that he retained copyright over his own version.


Coulton graduated in 1993 from Yale, where he was a member of the Yale Whiffenpoofs. In the 1990s, Coulton was in a short-lived band, the ironically named SuperGroup, with television producer Eric Salat and best-selling author Darin Strauss. A former computer programmer employed at Cluen, a New York City software company, and self-described geek, Coulton tended to write quirky, witty lyrics about science fiction and technology: a man who thinks in simian terms, a mad scientist who falls in love with one of his captives, and the dangers of bacteria. Rare topical songs include 2005’s “W’s Duty”, which sampled President George W. Bush, and 2006’s “Tom Cruise Crazy”. Most of Coulton’s recordings feature his singing over guitar, bass, and drums; some also feature the various other instruments Coulton plays, including accordion, harmonica, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, zendrum and glockenspiel.


Jonathan Coulton (born December 1, 1970), often called “JoCo” by fans, is an American folk/comedy singer-songwriter, known for his songs about geek culture and his use of the Internet to draw fans. Among his most popular songs are “Code Monkey”, “Re: Your Brains”, “Still Alive” and “Want You Gone” (the last three being featured in games developed by Valve: Left 4 Dead 2, Portal, and Portal 2 respectively). He has been the house musician for NPR weekly puzzle quiz show Ask Me Another since 2012.
