Sitcoms love having guest stars, and sometimes they're even able to rope in famous bands and musicians to give a performance! However, these can often be a pretty weird fit, as you'll see in these 10 clips.

Square Pegs - Devo

An often-forgotten sitcom that launched the career of Sarah Jessica Parker, Square Pegs featured the band best known for "Whip It" on an episode. Apparently the band was severely uncomfortable with the amount of drug use happening on set.

We Finally Know The True Meaning Of Cyndi Lauper's Song "She Bop" And We're Mortified

I remember dancing like a robot to this song alone in my room, at my friend's house, and in public. The thing is, I wasn't only dancing to it, I was yelling the lyrics, and now I really wish I didn't.The 1983 song "She Bop" reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in '84, meaning that everyone was rocking out to another Cyndi Lauper hit.
