TV-2 (stylized as TV·2 or tv.2, short for Taurus Version 2; formerly briefly known as taurus), is a Danish pop rock band group formed in 1981 in Aarhus. The group is composed of Steffen Brandt (lead vocals, guitar and keyboards), Hans Erik Lerchenfeld (guitar), Georg Olesen (bass), and Sven Gaul (drums). Having released 17 studio albums, three live albums and two compilations, they are one of the most successful bands in Danish music history and have always consisted of the same four members.

TV-2 was formed prior to the Danish television station TV 2, which began broadcasting in 1988. Some of their songs, such as "Fantastiske Toyota" (Danish for "Fantastic Toyota"), are known to have commercial like concepts. They used to refer jokingly to themselves as "Danmarks kedeligste orkester" (meaning "Denmark's most boring orchestra").
