4 - DLR, Eddie, Alex and Wolfgang

---------------------------------

OK, this is sort of a music/movie question (more movie, so sue me and get the next question back on track)

In the movie "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure", Bill and Ted wish they could recruit Eddie Van Halen to their band.

What was the name of their band?

That would be "The Hands that Built America" and the song that won was "Lose Yourself" by Eminem.

What song stole the 1987 "Song of the Year" Grammy from U2? (This win resulted in a 15 year old me throwing the couch cushion at the television set.)

Somewhere Out There from some animated movie - incredible! >:(

Which band from the 80's survived the death of its lead singer to become a successful trio?

*Bonus:  name the original band*

Was it Japan?  - Yes, confirmed!

What 1983 (I think - I couldn't find the year on my 12" single) song became the unofficial anthem for Goths everywhere? *Hint:  think of a fall holiday*

And before you ask, I wasn't Goth - I was a DJ!

I would think Bela Lagosi's Dead, but that was earlier than 1983.

I thought of that first, but the one I have in mind refers to the way Goths look.  Does Ministry help you out?
