Oh don’t get me wrong, there are times when it not only worked, it helped set the tone for the entire film, like The Ramones in “Rock ‘N’ Roll High School,” Bauhaus in “The Hunger” or Oingo Boingo in “Back to School.”

Then there are examples that are up for debate, like Jonathan Richman in “There’s Something About Mary.”

Other times, it’s so painful you can just imagine the band feverishly negotiating to get their appearance cut out of the DVD release so there’s no permanent record.

Examples of this include The Blasters in “Streets of Fire,” The B-52’s in “The Flintstones” and Sugar Ray in “Scooby Doo.”

And even though they weren’t in a single frame of the movie, it’s pretty much an accepted fact that “Xanadu” effectively destroyed ELO.

Finally, there’s the piece of cinema gold by which all other embarrassing musical moments must forever be measured: “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”

So how about it? What are some of the other band cameos that will have to be answered for at that big music festival in the sky?
