Otis Day and The Knights
From: Animal House
Members: DeWayne Jessie, Lloyd Williams, Greg Hanley, Amelia Jesse
Otis! My MAN! Otis Day and The Knights frequented basements and toga parties, literally bringing down the house. As you listen to "Shout" and "Shama Lama Ding Dong," you can understand where your dad got his dance moves... and why some weddings have banned "Shout" from being played.
Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem
From: The Muppet Show
Members: Dr. Teeth, Janice, Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Zoot, Animal, Lips
Sporting what is, inarguably, the best band name in history (real or fictional) and the most on-brand musicians ever, the house band for the Muppet Show was explosive (sometimes literally) in popularity, relevance, range, and musical virtuosity.
