Musical cameos on TV/Film

The Adventures of Pete & Pete was the best TV show for this, even though as a kid these cameos barely registered with me at the time.

  • Polaris - Mark Mulcahys post Miracle Legion band created just for the show. The album was finally released recently and is great.
  • Iggy Pop, “James ‘Pop’ Mecklenberg”
  • Kate Pierson, “Mrs. Vanderveer”
  • Michael Stipe, “Captain Scrummy”
  • Debbie Harry.
  • David Johansen, “Park Ranger Thorsen”
  • Richard Edson, “Mr. Beverly”
  • Gordon Gano, “Mr. Zank”
