Although MGMT is a common music industry abbreviation of “management,” the band actually pronounces its name as em-gee-em-tee. The Brooklyn act spawned from the collaboration of Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden, who formed MGMT in 2006 while attending Wesleyan University. In 2010, the group has already earned two Grammy nominations, including one for Best New Artist, and appeared as musical guest on “Saturday Night Live.”
