Literary Band Names (90 person items)

"This is quite a convoluted literary origin because the band admits to naming themselves after the 1971 film with George C. Scott. However, the name of the film in turn comes as a sideways reference to the titular character in the Miguel de Cervantes novel Don Quixote tilting at windmills: He thought that every windmill was a giant. That's insane. But, thinking that they might be...."

"Nominated by the giraffe My high school friends got me into They Might Be Giants. We used to drive around the city listening to Flood and Apollo 18, and those who knew the lyrics would sing along together to ever song. So pretty soon I got my own copies just so I could participate, and remained a devoted fan for many years. They've recorded some children's albums that are decent in recent years, but for me their 90s output remains the best. They're entertaining live also. Favourite Album: Floo"

Rock Nerds: The 10 Biggest Geeks in Music (10 person items)

"Instead of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, these brainy Brooklynites sing about shapes, museums and robots. So it was no surprise when TMBG made a full-fledged children's album teaching kids how to cross the street and to tell the truth. The duo's nasally vocals and accordion-led power pop hooks has won them a few Grammys, including one for the bratty theme song 'Boss of Me,' from 'Malcolm in the Middle.' Geek IQ: 172"
