Warner Music Group (formerly Warner-Elektra-Atlantic, or WEA) was the first major music distribution company in the US. The label is headquartered in New York City. In addition to the Warner Bros, Elektra and Atlantic labels, WMG distributes audio and video releases from Rhino Entertainment, Word Entertainment, Time-Life Music, Warner Music Latina, and Curb Records, as well as several other labels.

WMG was the distributor for most of TMBG's Elektra-era albums and singles in non-domestic markets. As WEA, Warner also released many promos and samplers featuring various artists, among whom TMBG frequently numbered. More recently, WMG handled the UK pressing of No!. WMG also co-created ADA Global, which has distributed They Might Be Giants releases in European markets.
