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 as a musical
theatre troupe by movie director Richard Elfman in 1972, the Mystic Knights of Oingo Boingo (as they were originally called) were used for his 1980
movie, the Forbidden Zone. Oingo Boingo had many members, but Richard's younger brother Danny became the main focal point of the band, since
he was the vocalist and a guitarist. Although together for over 17 years, Oingo Boingo is most famous for the eponymous theme song from the John
Hughes movie, Weird Science.
