Danny Elfman was in Oingo Boingo

Category: Music Trivia
Danny Elfman, film director Tim Burton's favourite composer, was a member of "Oingo Boingo" (also known at different times as "The Mystic Knights of Oingo Boingo" and "Boingo") The band was best known for the song "Wierd Science", which was written for the John Hughes film of the same name.

Where I learned it:
While passing through the living room where Eddie McGuire, host of Australia's version of "Who wants to be a millionaire", revealed this factoid after having asked a question about the famous composer.
