This Might Be A Wiki talk:Other Bands You Might Like If You Like TMBG

From This Might Be A Wiki

It seems like I can't edit the page at the moment, so I'll just put it here for now. The band Tally Hall should definitely be on this list. I think they opened for tmbg in 2006? +1 for Tally Hall They are one of the few bands that can style switch as completely yet seamlessly as TMBG

I don't like either band enough to go digging for URLs myself, but I'm surprised that there's no links yet for the Rentals or REM.

The band 10¢ is listed on (as "10 cents"), but I don't know how much about the site, so I don't know if there's a way to get a static URL that will always point to that particular band's page, so hopefully someone smarter than me can provide a link.

A glaring omission: Jonathan Richman.

How about The Minus 5? Their first album was only available through the They Might Be Giants mailing list....

I'm pretty sure fans of They Might Be Giants would greatly appreciate Robyn Hitchcock. --Overjoy 06:18, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

I don't really see why the wiki would need to include a caution that some songs by artists linked on this may contain explicit or adult-themed lyrics that would be inappropriate for children. I mean, we don't censor in any way songs with cussing or reference to inappropriate subjects in TMBG songs, so what reason is there to say that a few of the other bands listed have the possibility of having a song with a grown-up theme or profanity? ~ Magbatz 17:18, 27 Mar 2006 (CST)

I totally agree with you...check the history of this discussion page to see the reason it's here. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 19:15, 27 Mar 2006 (CST)

I think it would be a good idea to make a rating system for the bands similar to the one on the "Mysterious Next Album" page...this way, if a particular band had a lot of + marks, they might be more likely to be appreciated by a TMBG fan. What does everyone think? --Martorano

I think you might be blind. ;) -CapitalQtalk ♪ 21:41, 1 May 2006 (CDT)

I'd blame my cold and the Nyquil I'm high on...but would anyone believe me? Oh my god. --Martorano

Why was like half the content of this page deleted? I don't want to miss great acts like the REM, Beck or Ween on this list, all of which I would indeed recommend to fans of TMBG. Should this be reverted or did I miss something? - Whirrrlwind (Woosh!) 18:24, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

I'm not know...this brings up a good point though. What's the difference between this page and the Recommendation Grid? I think we should combine those two pages, and then let people make up their own minds. --Duke33 19:29, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
Best thing would be a table of some sorts. But I'm no good coder. I'll give it a shot though. - Whirrrlwind (Woosh!) 19:32, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
I'll finish tomorrow. I have to go to bed now. Poor me. - Whirrrlwind (Woosh!) 21:12, 19 September 2006 (UTC)


How about organizing by votes instead of pseudo-aphabetically? It would make more sense, and would provide the wanted info faster (what would I want if I came to this page?) 04:07, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

That is possible! Just click on the 'Votes' heading. -J2

Updating the style?[edit]

I was about to get rid of the border and make the header light orange, but then I realized that that could potentially suck. Reasons: This is not the only skin! Nonetheless, I think we should ditch the ugly border anyway. Any ideas how? (I already tried border-style=solid.)-J2


Could you please unprotect this article again? --JohnnyLurg (talk) 18:06, 29 May 2014 (EDT)

I agree, this should be editable- i'd like to add my votes, or even artists, to the list. -[[User:Drlemon|Drlemon]] (talk) 18:43, 5 March 2015 (EST)

Is there any way to tell how many edits one has? -Bouncer15111

The Ramones were not "the original punk band". That title is generally acknowledged to belong to the Stooges (although credit might also be given to a Peruvian band called Los Saicos). -- Thread Bomb (talk) 01:39, 21 April 2020 (EDT)

Unlocking this page for editing[edit]

Can someone unlock this page for editing? It's purpose is to be for TMBG fans to recommend other bands, but it's impossible to do that if we can't edit it.

While I'm here, I'd like to recommend Wintergatan. They combine a wide variety of brilliant instruments (including many mechanical ones) and while their music is purely instrumental, it's still great.

Broken Link[edit]

The link for Architecture In Helsinki leads to some random website, the link should be Can someone edit that it? I'm unable to edit the page. --Dinnercereal (talk) 20:22, 21 June 2021 (EDT)

Will Wood[edit]

Could someone add Will Wood and the Tapeworms onto the list? Ms. Xcitement (talk) 08:06, 27 January 2023 (EST)
