* TheBandMinusTheFace: While Wilco's face Jeff Tweedy has never left the band, the very first incarnation of Wilco was just the final line-up of Uncle Tupelo, except without lead singer/guitarist John Stirratt.

While their debut album, ''A.M.'', showed a heavy alt-country influence in its own right, Wilco evolved their sound into a more ProgressiveRock direction on subsequent releases, in the process becoming one of the most critically acclaimed bands of the '90s and '00s. In addition to their original work, they also released two albums in collaboration with English singer-songwriter Music/BillyBragg, in which they took unpublished Music/WoodyGuthrie lyrics and set them to music.

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.
