Or you could just rename this thread "This Is Spinal Tap" or what was the band's name in the movie "Satisfaction"? Weren't they called "Mystery" or something like that?

More movies with cool bands ...Spring Break and Hardbodies

Even better ... one of the bands you named Oingo Boingo performed "Dead Man's Party" in the movie "Back To School" .. so I think you're subliminally good!

Dead Kennedys with lead singer Jello Biafra is number one. Krokus, Blow Monkeys, and Spandau Ballet get honorable mention in my book.
