'Dazed and Confused' actors-turned-musicians

'Dazed and Confused' actors-turned-musicians -- Adam Golberg, Milla Jovovich, and others from the cast are churning out tracks

The classic 1993 movie featured tons of killer music (Foghat, anyone?). But it wasn’t just the characters who loved groovy tunes: A surprising number of Dazed actors have made music on their own.

1. Adam Goldberg
In the movie Agitated future ACLU lawyer Mike.
Musical claim to fame On June 23, Goldberg — using the name LANDy — will release Eros and Omissions. The Flaming Lips’ Steven Drozd helped craft his cracked art-pop symphonies.
Would Mike dig it? Yep. The trippy Eros would sound amazing through those massive headphones you know he keeps in the den.

2. Milla Jovovich
In the movie Hippie waif Michelle, who sings a wispy tune in one scene.
Musical claim to fame She impressed critics with her Kate Bushish 1994 CD The Divine Comedy.
Would Michelle dig it? For sure: The tune Michelle sings is actually Jovovich’s own ”The Alien Song (for those who listen).”

3. Anthony Rapp
In the movie Reserved nerd Tony, who woos freshman catch Sabrina.
Musical claim to fame Rapp released an album of singer-songwriter pop-rock in 2000, but he’s made his biggest impact on Broadway, where he originated the role of Mark in Rent.
Would Tony dig it? Unlikely. He’s way too buttoned-down to celebrate ”La Vie Bohème.”

4. Matthew McConaughey
In the movie Aging hedonist Wooderson.
Musical claim to fame Owns record label j.k. livin. Also: bongos.
Would Wooderson dig it? Pantsless percussion and a mantra of ”just keep livin”’? He’d love it more than redheads.
