Oingo Boingo

Oingo Boingo was an American New Wave band.

They are better known for their influence, soundtrack contributions and high energy Halloween concerts than their chart successes.

The band was founded in 1972 as a performance art group called The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo; from 1976 it was led by songwriter/vocalist Danny Elfman, who later achieved substantial renown as a composer for film and television.

The group's format was changed twice.

In 1980, it changed from a semi-theatrical music and comedy troupe into a New Wave/ska octet, and shortened their name to "Oingo Boingo".

In 1994, the band reshuffled its lineup, adopted an alternative rock sound and rechristened themselves Boingo.

The band retired in 1995, having reverted to the name Oingo Boingo.
