Kermit or David Byrne, what's the difference?

A signature band of the 1980s, the Talking Heads are remembered for the out-of-tune way singer David Byrne wrestled with new wave, art rock, african and latin music, funk, etcetera. Three members of the band are graduates of the Rhode Island School of Design and it shows: the lyrics are poetry, the live shows were slapstick theatre. "This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around." Live album Stop Making Sense is a must-have, the accompanying movie a must-see.
Trivial pursuit question: where did the band Radiohead get its name from? Answer: from the song Radio Head on the Talking Heads album True Stories. The novel American Psycho by Bret Ellis opens with a line from Nothing But Flowers (from the album Naked): "And as things fell apart, nobody paid much attention."
