Editors’ Notes On more than a dozen albums, John Flansburgh and John Linnell of They Might Be Giants have given hope to any kid who ever got called a nerd. If these guys could be GRAMMY®-winning rock stars, anyone could. Proudly flaunting their geekiness, along with an encyclopedic knowledge of classic pop and its weirder corners, the band began in the '80s as a goofy new wave act, complete with accordion. They've penned everything from power pop to pastiches of Middle Eastern music to miniature symphonies, and released a series of popular albums for kids, which are as enjoyable as their “adult” records.
