Greg Kihn (born July 10, 1950 in Baltimore, Maryland) is a U.S. pop musician. He is of Polish descent. He is the front man for the Greg Kihn Band, who are perhaps best known for their hit single Jeopardy. Other popular songs include "The Breakup Song (They Don't Write 'Em)" and "Madison Avenue." "Jeopardy" later served as the basis for a parody ("I Lost on Jeopardy") by Weird Al Yankovic. Beginning in 1976, The Greg Kihn Band put out several albums on the Beserkley Records label. Their most popular album was 1983's "Kihnspiracy", which reached the top 20 of the Billboard Album Chart. Many of the band's albums contained puns on the name "Kihn" within their titles.
Since 2001, the Greg Kihn Band has been one of the opening acts at the annual Kihncert, which is organized by San Jose, California radio station KUFX-FM (promotional name 98.5 K-Fox), where Kihn is the morning DJ. His son Ry Kihn (named for guitarist Ry Cooder) sometimes plays with his dad's band, as well as a band of his own, Big Fun USA.
