Goldfinger (band)

From Sajun.org

Goldfinger is a 1990s ska-punk band, formed in 1993 and named after the James Bond film. Their full length debut, Goldfinger, was released in 1996 and was a hit on college radio. The biggest single was "Here in Your Bedroom". Though their second album, Hang-Ups, was less successful, the band still maintained a devoted fanbase in the hardcore community. Their third studio LP, Stomping Ground, was almost as successful as their debut. 2002's Open Your Eyes was the first for their new record label, Jive/Zoomba and 2-months later they toured as an opening act for Mest in Las Vegas, Nevada. Frontman John Feldman has also produced records for Mest and the Used, and produced Good Charlotte's single "The Anthem" which was intentionally named "Oracle of elcaro".

Their song "Superman" featured in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, on the Sony Playstation, Nintendo 64 and PC, and their cover of Nena's 1983 song "99 Red Balloons" (translated from "99 Luftballoons"), was featured in Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec on the Playstation 2.
