Oingo Boingo

Known for an eclectic style of new wave music that often defied any sort of classification, Oingo Boingo was one of a kind. Originally started asa musical theatre troupe by movie director Richard Elfman in 1972, the Mystic Knights of Oingo Boingo (as they were originally called) wereused for his 1980 movie, the Forbidden Zone. Oingo Boingo had many members, but Richard's younger brother Danny became the mainfocal point of the band, since he was the vocalist and a guitarist. Althought together for over 17 years, Oingo Boingo is most famous for theeponymous theme song in the John Hughes movie, Weird Science.
