The original three-man lineup.

They Might Be Giants is a rock band of dwarves from Istanbul (not Constantinople), still hugely popular on college campuses across the 1980s. They are well known by some for their brand of complex, highly literate songs about Dunkin' Donuts coffee, killing your ex-girlfriend and a huge number of other people in the process, and FOX sitcoms.

The band was founded by two Johns, John Flannell and John Limburger, about 800 million years ago, and has gone from strength to strength ever since by playing their accordions to such classic songs as "I Hate My Girlfriend With A Flaming, Screaming Passion" and "There Are Eighty-Six Reasons Why Everything In The World Is Both Depressing And Funny At The Same Time". Their most recent album was originally thought to focus on facial hair and the many ways that it can make you sad; however, it has been revealed that it is actually about elves and the many ways they can make you sad.

  • The name They Might Be Giants was chosen only after they discovered that "Flock of Seagulls" was already taken by a very lame band.
  • Their music led to the uprise of Sith Lord Optimus Prime, pissing off fans who felt they had sold out.
  • They lead the world with the most nuclear bombs. Since 2003, they have been selling these bombs to random Iranians in an attempt to better their name.
  • After 5 years, They Might Be Giants fired their backup band, The Beatles. John Flansburgh later explained that their pro-choice position led to this.
  • Incorrect homophones make the band throe up.
  • TMBG enjoys running down the Statue of Liberty, your girlfriend's dad, and American values, in their blue, '67BC Thunderbird. They are currently on trial in a shack somewhere in Idaho for inappropriate use of the word "prevenge."

To this day, John and John can be found sitting in their thrones, laughing and making a fortune from all the people they tortured.

Big, big, fake, fake lies.

In an effort to improve their image, They Might Be Giants created a propaganda movie, "Ginormous". If you're planning on buying the DVD (only $19.99), be forwarned: it's full of big, big, fake, fake lies, and may possibly leave tabloid footprints in your hair and/or everywhere.

Current Stuff[edit]

They Might Be Giants have released their new album "There Goes Science" on iToons. Expect the CD in a few years (when they figure out how to work their CD burner). With the new album out, TMBG plans to go back to releasing monthly Poocasts filled with music they've already released.
