I remember Motorhead playing a gig in their house, for no apparent reason
Apologies if everybody already knows this, but the reason is that by including a musical number, it would be classed as light entertainment rather than comedy, and get a bigger budget.

And The Damned playing ‘Grimly Fiendish’ if we’re looking for a comics connection, if I recall correctly…

Well, I didn't know that - thanks!  I remember Ricky Gervais parodying this kind of thing brilliantly by having Coldplay play a gig in Extras' sitcom-within-a-sitcom, then awkwardly shoehorning some self-promotion into the dialogue.  Not that I have any time for Coldplay, mind you, or Ricky Gervais much these days too for that matter.

Yeah, it was Ace of Spades Lemmy and Co were belting out in that student house.  It worked well with the general chaos that was going on with the characters simultaneously.

Dead Kennedys drummer D H Peligro dies after he hits his head in a fall. Damn, one of the finest US punk bands ever, they endured various legal battles, with lead singer Jello Biafra financially settling in the end with the other band members.

It was loft ladders what killed our Martin.
