The Shins on Nick Jr.

Here is a video of The Shins performing a song on a kid's show... wierd... kind of catchy.



    Love Yo Gabba Gabba.

  2. Wow, that actually made me really disrespect the Shins, which I didn't think was possible. Can they go back to sounding like they did a year ago and not like they are trying to make kid jingles?

  3. Yo Gabba Gabba! is hosted by a character named DJ Lance Rock, and five toy monsters: Brobee, Foofa, Muno, Plex, and Toodee. It features The MC Bat Commander and Ricky Fitness, two members of The Aquabats, and Adam Deibert (formerly of the Aquabats) as the voice of Muno the Cyclops.

    The show features a wide variety of guests: The Shins, The Aggrolites, Cornelius, Biz Markie, Shiny Toy Guns, Supernova, Mark Mothersbaugh, Rahzel, The Postmarks[2], Sugarland, Tony Hawk, Low, Laila Ali, Elijah Wood, The Aquabats, and Mýa have all been confirmed to have appeared in the first season[3].

    The absurd style of humor used in the show is intended, like The Aquabats, to appeal to adults through its manic, frenzied approach to wholesome messages, while at the same time carrying all the content of the average Nick Jr. program for the whole family.

    Among the varied animation sequences during the show is Super Martian Robot Girl, designed by indie cartoonists Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer.[4]

    Retailer and toy manufacturer, Kidrobot makes and sells figures of each of the five characters.[5]

    MP3 audio files were available for download from an official Yo Gabba Gabba site as early as June 2006, before a major network had picked up the show
