No! Cover
Although it’s probably heresy to say so in some quarters, I’ve always found They Might Be Giants to be vaguely annoying. While I can appreciate their musicianship and find their lyrics clever it’s just not the sort of music I’d choose to listen to.

But it’s their “childishness” that can make them so appealing to some - like my son. My wife picked up their 2002 album “No!” for our 4 year-old for Christmas and he couldn’t possibly be more delighted with it. Anyone that can make my child that happy is okay by me.

They’ve setup a website for the album here.

There’s a good interview with TMBG about “No!” at NPR here.
