Wilco is an American alternative/indie rock band from UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}}, formed from the ashes of Uncle Tupelo. (After that pioneering AlternativeCountry outfit split up in 1994, its two principal singer-songwriters moved on to form their own bands: Jay Farrar started Son Volt, while Jeff Tweedy started Wilco.)

* EpicRocking: Particularly on ''A Ghost is Born'' and ''The Whole Love''. "Art of Almost" clocks in at seven minutes, while two songs from ''Ghost'' are ten minutes and fifteen respectively (Spiders and Less Than You Think). {{Subverted|Trope}} with "One Sunday Morning", which, at 12 minutes, is certainly epic, but is almost entirely acoustic, and Less Than You Think, which contains about three minutes of acoustic, followed by twelve minutes of feedback.

* LastNoteNightmare: Several tracks on ''Yankee Hotel Foxtrot'' and ''A Ghost is Born'' degenerate into white noise at the end.

** And the song "Heavy Metal Drummer", which name-drops the band {{Music/KISS}}.

Added DiffLines:

* HarmlessElectrocution: The comic panels on the cover of ''Schmilco'' depict a man using himself as an electrical conduit to power a record player for a young girl to listen to. It's not exactly harmless, as seen by the nosebleed he gets, but since the music continues to play and the girl doesn't seem bothered by it, we can infer that it wasn't deadly.


Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: ''Sky Blue Sky'' was noticeably more easygoing than its predecessors, which definitely had their quieter and sparser songs, but were much more experimental and noisy overall. ''Schmilco'' seems to also follow in this vein, coming on the heels of ''Star Wars''.
