Postgirobygget is a Norwegian rock band from Trondheim. Singer and songwriter Arne Hurlén, bass player and backing vocals Nicolai Hauan (new member in 2009), guitarist and backing vocals Nils Petter Time, keyboardist and harmonica player Øyvind Kolset, and drums, percussion and backing vocals Per Sarin Madsen.

The band formed as the cover band The Pissed Off Boys for a student party in late 1994, they never really intended to play as a "proper" band with their own songs, but their live playings created such a passionate fan base that they kept going. As they eventually needed more material to play, the band started playing songs featured on vocalist Arne Hurlén's demo CDs. Realising they had become the "real" band they never intended, the band soon renamed themselves Postgirobygget.[1]

They recorded their first album in 1996 with the title Melis.
