The Outnumbered was a jangle pop band from Champaign-Urbana, Illinois formed in 1982. It played a mixture of The Byrds melodicism and Ramones energy. Influences included 60s garage bands, 70s guitar pop / power pop, classic punk rock, and 80s indie rock bands. They released their frst album "Why Are All the Good People Going Crazy?" in 1985 and then toured the country in support of The Replacements, Violent Femmes and Soul Asylum. They released their second album, "Holding the Grenade Too Long", in 1986.

Thanks for this - reminds a bit of Philadelphia's great and now seemingly entirely forgotten Wishniaks (if you ever come across their "Nauseous and Cranky" EP, it would make a great post here).
