Always been curious about that medal thing Flans is wearing. Maybe I’ll ask him about it.
By request of edithhead, here’s TMBG’s performance of “Boss of Me” on the Late Late Show. SNAZZY SUITS.
As the students walked out to their recessional class song, “Boss of Me Now” [sic] by “They Might Be Giants,” the only thing that is left for the Class of 2012 is to graduate Sunday afternoon.
Hahaha WHAT. Didn’t know anyone still cared about that song. THIS HIGH SCHOOL IS COOLER THAN MY HIGH SCHOOL.
They Might Be Giants (and Mike Viola) | Boss of Me (Live on Conan)
This song earned TMBG their first Grammy award. Also, this was the theme song for Malcolm in the Middle. :3
The guy on lead guitar is Mike Viola, he wrote/performed the title track to the movie, “That Thing You Do!”
Mike Viola has done a lot more than that! He had a really fantastic band called the Candy Butchers and is doing stellar solo work now. He also did some stuff with Mono Puff.
