What are the greatest band cameos in movie history? Making a comprehensive list of all musicians who've graced the big screen (albeit briefly) over the years would take... well, years. Here are some of the biggest, and the best. From Rush to KISS to the Afghan Whigs, check out some of the most memorable band and musician cameos ever.

  • The Mighty Mighty Bosstones' cameo in the '90s teen comedy Clueless has to be on this list. They show up when Cher decides to take Josh to a party where they're performing.

    Is this great?
