Oingo Boingo - Gratitude

Oingo Boingo - Gratitude

If you didn't know, before Danny Elfman was rolling in the Hollywood soundtrack dough, he was the leadman for one of the greatest 80's synth-pop bands, Oingo Boingo.
Yes, the Dragon is a child of the 80's, and this video reminds me of why I loved having my attention span systematically reduced by cathode-rays.

If you think that is something Oingo Boingo was originally "The Mystic Knights Of The Oingo Boingo". They were featured doing Minnie The Moocher in the movie "The Forbidden Zone" and if you say you haven't seen it I will personally bitch slap you ; ). Mystic Knights reportedly started out doing sets covering Cab Calloway in cool costumes and Richard Elfman was a member back then. Check these out I can't believe they exist.
