Fountains of Wayne is an American power pop/rock band, formed in 1995. The band name was taken from the name of a lawn-ornament store in Wayne, New Jersey, called "Fountains of Wayne".
Fountains of Wayne is comprised of band members Chris Collingwood (lead vocals, guitar), Adam Schlesinger (bass, backing vocals), Jody Porter (guitar, backing vocals) and Brian Young (drums). In 1996, Fountains of Wayne released their self-titled debut which spawned the singles "Radiation Vibe" and "Sink to the Bottom", which both received airplay. Coincidentally, at around the same time the title song for the film That Thing You Do!, which Schlesinger wrote, became a hit. "That Thing You Do!" also brought Schlesinger an Oscar nomination and an RIAA gold certification for the hit soundtrack. The band toured the world extensively behind the album, playing alongside bands such as The Smashing Pumpkins and The Lemonheads.
