The Real Oh My is a side project band featuring Minutemen/Firehose bassist Mike Watt,[1] Geraldine Fibbers/Wilco guitarist Nels Cline, and Circle Jerks drummer Kevin Fitzgerald.[2] The trio, which plays occasional club gigs in the Los Angeles area, plays their own interpretations of Iggy & The Stooges and other classics.[3]

The band's name is an accidental corruption of the closing lyric from "Down On The Street", the opening track of the Stooges' Fun House album. (The actual lyric is "Real O-Mind"). Watt, who named the band, did not know the correct lyric until he became a member of the Stooges himself in 2003.

This particular project band has been inactive in recent months due to Cline's increased involvement in Wilco.
