The Frogs were an American experimentalrock music band founded in 1980, in Milwaukee. Their songs have a strong satirical bent, and history of controversy has dogged the band. Centering around brothers Jimmy Flemion and Dennis Flemion, guitarist and drummer respectively, the Frogs added bassist Jay Tiller in 1983. That same year, Jimmy began wearing what was to become his trademark stage gimmick, a pair of six-foot bat wings. Although in their early days, the Frogs played mostly in coffeehouses, they soon developed a large following, due mostly to their fan-friendly shows.
