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, Eric Harvey, and Alex Fischel. 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 eight 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)
* ''They Want My Soul'' (2014)

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.
* ShoutOut: "The Way We Get By" mentions several songs by Iggy Pop and Music/TheStooges - namely "Shake Appeal", "Some Weird Sin", and "Down On The Street".
* 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.
