Spoon is a rock band from Austin, Texas formed in 1993. The current lineup includes founders Britt Daniel and Jim Eno, as well as Rob Pope and Eric Harvey. The group has a very catchy and distinct sound that blends classic rock/punk influences with the experimentation and techniques commonly associated with modern AlternativeRock. To date, they currently have seven studio albums to their name:
* ''Telephono'' (1996)
* ''A Series of Sneaks'' (1998)
* ''Girls Can Tell'' (2001)
* ''Kill the Moonlight'' (2002)
* ''Gimme Fiction'' (2005)
* ''Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga'' (2007)
* ''Transference'' (2010)

Outside of Spoon, Britt Daniel has been involved in a number of side projects such as remixing and producing music for other bands like {{Interpol}} and WhiteRabbits, contributing to the original score for StrangerThanFiction, and most recently, co-founding a new band with members of other established indie acts called Divine Fits. Their well-received debut, ''A Thing Called Divine Fits'' was released in 2012.
!! This band contains examples of:
* AlbumTitleDrop: A strange example. ''Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga'' is apparently named after the piano sounds in "The Ghost Of You Lingers".
* BuryYourGays: "The Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine":
-->I wanna play the part of Eddie in ''The Stranger Dance''
-->He makes love to the duke
-->He swordfights the queen
-->He steals the whole show in his last dying scene
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Their first couple of releases, while still fairly popular with critics and fans, have a "louder" and rawer feel to them that could catch people who heard their more recent and popular work first off guard.
* {{Instrumentals}}: Not very common in their output, but ''Girls Can Tell'' has the appropriately named "This Book is a Movie".
* LoopedLyrics: "My Little Japanese Cigarette Case".
* PerishingAltRockVoice
* ProtestSong: "Don't Make Me A Target" according to WordOfGod.
* StudioChatter: At the beginning of "Don't You Evah".
* SurprisinglyGentleSong: The quiet, piano-based lullaby "Goodnight Laura", on ''Transference''.
* TitledAfterTheSong: The band is named after a Music/{{Can}} song.
