The T-Bones were an American pop group active in the mid-1960s. (They should not be confused with the British mid-1960s band of the same name.)[1] The group had a hit single in 1966 with their instrumental "No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach's In)", whose melody was from a commercial for Alka-Seltzer. The tune reached #3, and its follow-up, "Sippin N Chippin", peaked at #62;[2] the accompanying album hit #75 on the Billboard 200.[3] The group later recorded as Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds.
