I guess you could call them dork-rock. They're pretty famous for songs that have appeared on cartoons (i.e. - Particle Man, Istanbul (Not Constantinople) , Courage the Cowardly Dog, Dee-Dee & Dexter). You can listen to some of their music for free at the Dial-A-Song webpage (or you could call (718) 387-6962) but those songs aren't as good as the ones on albums. I suggest you pick up the CD "Flood", it was the first one I heard.

It wasn't the theme song, it was for a music video that Cartoon Network played from time to time.
Here's the video.

Courage rocks.
