They Might Be Giants is an American alternative rock duo consisting of John Linnell and John Flansburgh that formed in 1982. The band is commonly abbreviated to TMBG. Best known for an unconventional and experimental style of alternative music, the group has found success on the modern rock and CMJ charts, in the children's music genre, and in theme music for several television programs and films.

Don't Let's Start
Their appearances on the show Tiny Toon Adventures also gained recognition for the song Particle Man. Their song Doctor Worm was a surprise hit in Australia, ranking 13th in the Triple J Hottest 100 for the year 1998. Two TMBG albums have been certified gold: Flood and the 2005 children's music album Here Come the ABCs.TMBG's song Boss of Me served as the theme to the Fox Television Network comedy series Malcolm in the Middle and earned them a Grammy Award in 2002. They have also contributed theme songs to
Comedy Central's The Daily Show

Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse
Linnell and Flansburgh first met as teenagers growing up in Lincoln, Massachusetts. They began writing songs together while attending Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School but never officially formed a band. The two attended separate colleges after high school, and Linnell joined The Mundanes, a New Wave group from Rhode Island. The two reunited in 1981 after moving to Brooklyn to continue their career.
Then: The Earlier Years (1982 to 1989)
Taking their name from the 1971 movie They Might Be Giants, the duo began performing their own music in and around New York City Flansburgh on guitar, Linnell on accordion and saxophone, and accompanied by a drum machine and a prerecorded backing track on audio cassette. Their typical instrumentation, along with their songs which featured unusual subject matter and clever wordplay, soon attracted a strong local following. Their performances also featured oddly comical stage props such as oversized fezzes and large cardboard cutout heads of newspaper editor William Allen White.
During the pause, they began recording their songs onto an answering machine, and then advertising the phone number in local newspapers. They also released a demo cassette, which earned them a review in People magazine. The review caught the attention of Bar None Records, who signed They Might Be Giants to a recording deal.

In 2004, the band created one of the first artist-owned online music stores, at which customers could purchase and download MP3 copies of their music, both new releases and many previously released albums.

The name of the store was TMBG MP3 Music Store.In 2004, the band released their first new adult rock work in three years, the EP Indestructible Object. They followed that up with a new album, The Spine, and an associated EP, The Spine Surfs Alone. For the album's first single, Experimental Film, TMBG teamed up with Homestar Runner creators Matt and Mike Chapman to create an animated music video. The band's collaboration with the Brothers Chaps also included several Puppet Jam segments with puppet Homestar, and the music for a Strong Bad email entitled Different Town.
Drummer Dan Hickey left the band around this timeframe and was subsequently replaced by Marty Beller, who had already played with TMBG for kids' shows and other projects.TMBG also contributed a track to the 2004 Future Soundtrack for America compilation, a project compiled by John Flansburgh with the help of Spike Jonze and Barsuk Records.
