* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Yang sings most of "Another Day" (Wareham joins in on the last chorus) and the YokoOno cover "Listen, the Snow is Falling", the latter being the only Galaxie 500 song without vocals by Wareham.

The band was formed by the three while they were studying at Harvard in 1987, and named themselves after a friend who owned a [[CoolCar Ford Galaxie 500]]. During this period, Krukowski lacked a permanent drumkit and instead borrowed one from his classmate ConanOBrien.

They signed with the Shimmy Disc label in 1988, where they proceeded to release one album per year: ''Today'', ''On Fire'' and ''This Is Our Music''. These showcased the band's simple DreamPop compositions argumented by Mark Kramer's psychedelic production and earned them some critical acclaim and a loyal audience. They and Music/{{Low}} are considered important influences on the {{Slowcore}} subgenre.

The band disintegrated in 1991 when Wareham moved back to New York and informed Yang and Krukowski that he was quitting. Wareham subsequently founded the bands Luna and Dean & Britta (with his [[CreatorCouples wife Britta Phillips]]), and Damon and Naomi founded the band [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Damon And Naomi]].
