Hello. I am Jnelson09. I was made aware of TMBG thanks to Malcolm in the Middle, then remembered hearing "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" and "Particle Man" somewhere back in the day.

I haven't attended any shows, because they started renovating the Lincoln Theatre right when I became a fan, and Asheville is four hours uphill. Not to mention, they were in Durham when I was in Myrtle Beach.

Everything You Know is Wrong[edit]

I think this "Weird Al" song, which was intended to emulate TMBG, should have its own article. I've noticed some themes in it: Animals, Artificial Body Parts, Colors, Oxymorons, Paradoxes, And Contradictory Statements, Food, Trade Names, Space, People (Real), Body Parts, Time, History, Bodily Mutilation, Heads, Evil, Stories, Death, Religion, Supernatural, Clothes, Screaming.
