They Might Be Giants (TMBG) are the pinnacle of nerd rock. With offbeat lyrics and catchy melodies, they capture the minds of esoteric, offbeat nerds. Oh, and they often bring out an accordion.
On a scale of 1 to Nertacular, they rank a high Nerdvana.
See that? That's an accordian. It's typically used by either the overweight, leiderhose wearing, the deaf, or guys named Al. There is a reason you don't see death metal bands with accodians. TMBG uses them ALL THE TIME. What's nerdier than a song about the presidents? A song about the presidents played on a f#@$-ing accordian.
