TBS and Rhino Records Crack Up the Jukebox with TBS TUNES: FUN TRACKS WISECRACKS

Collection of Power Pop to Tickle the Funny Bone Available from Rhino Records Jan. 10

TBS, television�s �very funny� network, and Rhino Records, the preeminent purveyor of hilarious harmonies, have teamed up for a comedy-rock compilation guaranteed to rock the funny bone.

�Through the use of popular music, specifically songs with a sense of humor, this dynamic compilation allows us to expand TBS�s position as a comedy brand,� said Jennifer Dorian, senior vice president, branding and business development for TBS and TNT. �We are proud to be working with Rhino Records as we find new ways reach comedy lovers.�

TBS TUNES: FUN TRACKS WISECRACKS contains 16 songs recorded between 1980 and 2005 that highlight uproarious tunes from a diverse group of hit-makers, including Devo, Squirrel Nut Zippers, They Might Be Giants, Citizen King, Was (Not Was), Less Than Jake and Wall Of Voodoo.

The collection features the #1 singles �One Week� by Barenaked Ladies, which topped Billboard�s Hot 100 in 1998, and �My Own Worst Enemy� by Lit, which topped Billboard�s Modern Rock chart in 1999. TBS TUNES: FUN TRACKS WISECRACKS also includes the gut/chart-busting tracks �Peaches� by The Presidents Of The United States Of America and �1985� by Grammy� -nominated Bowling For Soup.

Pop hooks and punch lines, TBS TUNES rocks with demented ditties like �Push Th� Little Daisies� from Ween�s 1992 cult classic Pure Guava; plants a tongue firmly in cheek for Cake�s cover of Gloria Gaynor�s 1979 #1 disco anthem �I Will Survive�; plays culture shock for laughs with Wall of Voodoo�s �Mexican Radio� from Stan Ridgway and company�s 1982 album, Call of the West; and gets giddy with The Supersuckers� take on the OutKast smash �Hey Ya!�
