Th' Corn Gangg was an indie pop/hip hop band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The band was founded by Jamie Thompson and Nicholas Thorburn as a direct offshoot project of The Unicorns several months prior to their December 2004 break-up, but prior to the formation of Islands by those same two musicians.

Th' Corn Gangg was involved with several projects with Subtitle, Busdriver, and Vic Booz playing several shows and remixing songs such as the North American Hallowe'en Prevention Initiative's single, "Do They Know It's Hallowe'en?", Islands' "Rough Gem" and Beck's "Emergency Exit" featured on Guerolito, but has not yet recorded an album.

They are important as a curious bit of history between the end of the Unicorns time as a band and the beginning of Islands, the now functioning post Unicorns band. The time spent with Th' Corn Gangg can clearly be seen in Islands' brief foray into hip hop halfway through the song Where There's a Will There's a Whalebone, a song originally performed by Th' Corn Gangg.
