Movies always went hand in hand with music. There’s no movie without a soundtrack. Even silent films used music to make it, not…well, too much silent. Anyway, some movies have gone even further and created full bands, just for the movie. I have a few favourites.
From “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”
Their most popular song “Do The Hippogriff” made these guys massively popular in the ‘wizarding world’. Why wouldn’t they be popular? They have bagpipes for heaven’s sake. However, the members look suspiciously like the members of Pulp and Radiohead.
Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes
From “Star Wars: A New Hope”
The Modal nodes are pioneers of a galactic popular form of music known as jizz. They’re a species of highly intelligent alien called Biths. The famous scene in the Mos Eisley cantina (where Han shot first) shows their best song “Mad about me”.
School of Rock
From “School of Rock”
If a slobby, lazy musician can become a teacher by tricking people and then teach students how not to do math but teach them about having self-confidence and doing what they love, all the while he shows them the power of rock…you know it’s Jack Black at it again.
From “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”
The movie was based on the “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” graphic novel, and was very creative and innovative. Of course it needed its own band. Scott’s only glimpse of a job was playing in this garage-rock band with an explosive name.
