* TheBandMinusTheFace: ''[[TakeThat No Talking]] The band broke up because of tension between David Byrne and the rest of the band. In 1996, the group (under the shortened name The Heads) recorded ''No Talking, Just Head'', a 1996 an album by ''The Heads'' (the band minus Byrne), with a different vocalist on each of the tracks. which Byrne sued them so they couldn't tour under was replaced by a new guitarist and a variety of guest singers, including Debbie Harry, Iggy Pop, Michael Hutchence, Andy Partridge and Johnette Napolitano (who sang lead on the name.accompanying tour). The album was not well received, and that was the end for any version of Talking Heads (except for a one-shot 2002 reunion gig celebrating the band's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame).

[[GenreBusting The new wave musical style of Talking Heads combined elements of punk rock, avant-garde, pop, funk, afrobeat and art rock.]] Frontman and songwriter David Byrne contributed whimsical, esoteric lyrics to the band's songs, and emphasized their showmanship through various multimedia projects and performances. The band worked with famous RecordProducer Music/BrianEno on all their albums between 197880, whose influence steered them towards their SignatureStyle dominated by incredibly dense, hypnotic funk grooves over which Byrne would improvise his vocals. They parted ways with Eno after their masterpiece ''Remain in Light'' and continued with a LighterAndSofter sound for the rest of their career, to increasing dissatisfaction from fans and critics. In 1986, they made a movie called ''Film/TrueStories,'' starring FaceOfTheBand David Byrne as the narrator. (Ironically, the film itself falls under the ''trope'' TalkingHeads.)
