Oingo Boingo Former Members continues the legacy of the American new wave band Oingo Boingo, formed in 1979. Created by Danny Elfman, the band flourished during the 80s and 90s. "Only a Lad," "Little Girls," "Dead Man's Party," and "Weird Science" are some of their best-known songs. Elfman decided to lay off the band in 1995 due to the reason that he was primarily working on songs for Tim Burton movies such as "Pee-wee's Big Adventure," "Edward Scissorhands," and "The Nightmare Before Christmas." Later on, he became one of the most sought-after Hollywood composers of all time.
Oingo Boingo Former Members include the original members: Johnny "Vatos" Hernandez, Sam "Sluggo" Phipps, Carl Graves, Steve Bartek, and John Avila. They are joined by Brendan McKian for lead vocals, Mike Glendinning for rhythm guitar, Freddy Hernandez for bass, and Brian Swartz for trumpet. This was formed in 2005 by Johnny Hernandez as a tribute to the former band. In 2015, Elfman recognized it as the only Oingo Boingo tribute and gave Hernandez the rights to the band's names.
