Hymie's Basement is an American indie rock duo. It consists of Yoni Wolf and Andrew Broder of Fog. They released one album, Hymie's Basement, on Lex Records in 2003.[1]

Combining elements of rap, folk and indie rock, the duo created what has often been referred to[by whom?] as "a thinking man’s melodic hip hop record." Songs range from the happy pop like chorus of "21st Century Pop Song" and the minimal sadness of "Lightning Bolts and Man Hands."
