I think that was Tito and Tarantula in From Dusk 'till Dawn. They are pretty good.

It was indeed Tito & Tarantula. I'm surprised Tito isn't more of a cult figure; his previous band, the Plugz, did the score for Repo Man, and he played Hammy in Pee-Wee Herman's HBO special ("Shoe mirrors!").

The Lunachicks in Terror Firmer

Strawberry Alarm Clock in Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

The Sex Pistols in The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle

NRBQ (as a Beatles cover band!) in Complex World (as well as the amazing, ultra-obscure, RI-quasi-punk band the Young Adults)

L7 in Serial Mom

There was another band in Repo Man, but I forget their name; they played the blues musicians who beat the snot out of Emilio

I think I heard about a movie where the Cramps play a biker gang, but I don't remember the name.

Does anyone know if the chick band in Blood Dolls is an actual band?  I've looked, but there's no band listed in the credits, and there's no soundtrack to the movie that I've been able to dig up.

Hahaha...I remember that first "music" scene with them...the "guitarist" was strumming a G power chord the entire time...even when there were no guitar parts...

How about Henry Rollins in "Johnny Mnemonic"

Mick Jagger in "Freejack"

David Bowie in "Merry Xmas Mr Lawrence,"  "Labyrinth," and "Fire Walk with Me"

Marky Mark in "The Big Hit"  (he was in others, but who cares)

Issac Hays in "Uncle Sam," "Escape From New York"  and you-know-what

Flea in "Big Lebowski" (Nihilist), "The Chase" (with Anthony Kiedis & Henry Rollins).  I forgot what this was called, but I remembered the scene where the 'Peppers get hit by the car.

Those are the ones that immediately come to mind...

If we are going to mention the Beatles movies, you shouldnt forget the Monkees movie, which was directed by none other, but Jack Nicholson.

Vermin, who usually has all the answers re. posts like this, I am quite shocked didn't mention the following:
Guns and Roses (With Jim Carrey(!!) taking the part of Axl Rose, but lip-synching Rose's vocals) in Clint Eastwood's "The Drowning Pool"
The Bonzo Dog Band (The band that followed Brave Sir Robin in Monty Python's Holy Grail -- whoops!  There's another one!) in The Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour".
Frank Zappa in The Monkees' "Head".

D'oh! The second after I posted, I remembered the Bonzo Dog Band in Magical Mystery Tour and Innes in Holy Grail!

My dad tracked down an old sixties artsy collage film called "You Are What You Eat" (it features one of his favorite songs, "My Name is Jack" by John Simon). Not that easy to watch, but it features excellent footage of the Mothers of Invention and Tiny Tim (backed by The Band!!) in action.

I saw a bit of a movie (I think called The Ladies Man) featuring Spike Jones & his City Slickers as barflies, lip-syncing "Cocktails for Two."

Not a movie, but I caught a rerun of The Adventures of Pete & Pete a couple of months ago, and was shocked to realize one of the kids' dads was played by Iggy Pop! And he even sang in the episode I saw!!

If I ever get money to make a movie, I'm definitely going to try to work in Deadbolt, a hilarious horror/surf rock/black comedy band. Their song "Patches the Clown" is an obscuro masterpiece.

Back to the Beach had:
Dick Dale and Stevie Ray Vaughn performing "Pipeline"
The Surf Punks and Pee-Wee Herman performing "Surfin' Bird"
Fishbone

Pearl Jam was in the movie "singles"

Lemmy from Motorhead was in the crowd in the movie "Airheads"

I think Wendy O'Williams (Plasmatics) was in a few movies.

GWAR was in the movie "Blind Date"
