Led by frontman Danny Elfman, Oingo Boingo was a cult new wave band in the 80’s and they appeared on a number of movie soundtracks of that decade, including 1985’s Weird Science.  The song of the same name was the title song for both the movie and the less than revered television series and has also been featured on shows like American Dad, The Super Mario Bros Super Show and Rick and Morty and EA used it in trailers for The Sims 4.  Going slightly more Frankenstein in the music video than Gary and Wyatt in the movie, Elfman has a team trying to create an army of zombie backup dancers in a sparse laboratory.  Check out the official music video below.
