Five bands I discovered because they were on soundtracks I bought.

#1. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
#2. The Ramones
#3. Linkin Park
#4. Ash
#5. Primus

Also because I'm ubernerdy and like musicals I learned that a woman named Marni Nixon provided the singing for 3 Very famous movie musicals.

#1. Maria in West Side Story (played by Natalie Wood)
#2. Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady (played by Audrey Hepburn)
#3. Anna in the King and I (played by Deborah Kerr)

I feel bad for her. I mean why didn't they just cast her? I also feel bad for the 3 ladies who weren't allowed to sing particularly since I know 2 of them were in other musicals and sang those parts. Damn studio system.
