Nice list Dirk. I'm not embarrassed to say I'm a huge Monkees fan, and their movie, "HEAD" (co-written by Jack Nicholson and the Monkees) has been showwn by Steven Speilberg in his UCLA film classes. Funny, trippy, and great music. (Their song "Porpoise Song" from this film was aslo used in the soundtrack, "Vanilla Sky.")

"Circle Sky," a Mike Nesmith tune, really does kick ass, and the Monkees play live in this clip from the movie.

Check it out.

Just for the entertainment value, since this list isn't strictly from genre movies I would have included Lustra's "Scotty Doesn't Know" (lipsynched by Matt Damon) from Euro Trip


And of course Stu's Tiger song from The Hangover....

Another band left off the list is a serious no-brainer. The Who in "Tommy." No band kicked more ass than The Who.

 Blues brothers and the cantina band all the way!

Great side note aobut Eric Idle.  Check out "Not The Messiah, He's A Very Naughty Boy."  He turned the Monty Python film " The Life of Brian" into an operatta performed at Prince Albert Hall in London.  It is very funny and fun to watch.  You can get it on DVD or Blu ray pretty cheap.  It is probably better than anything currently at the video store.  My favorite songs were " Sheep" and Idle's incomprehensible Bob Dylan parody song (turn on the subtitle for this one).

 I forgot about Tommy. Damn. I even have the soundtrack.

What about the TIME in Purple Rain.... Come on now you can't go wrong with Morris Day and Company

like bananafish I'm in my 40's and your list emits several great acts that have graced the silver screen.... Eddie and The Cruisers comes to mind even though John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band were absent save one member and the songs were lip synched ..... Streets of Fire .... the Crow had some cool musical performances.

Wait.... I forgot Oingo Boingo in the Rodney Dangerfield movie Back to School and lets not forget THE NERDS from REVENGE OF THE NERDS>>>> their band rocked!

Great list, but I must say Emmett Otter's Jugband was overlooked.

LMAO... "Only four of us can write..." The Soggy Bottom Boys rock it every time. Ain't that right..?
