John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd star as Jake and Elwood Blues, brothers who reunite their band The Blues Brothers for a benefit show to save their childhood orphanage. The 1980 film (based on an SNL skit) is full of spirited tunes as the boys break out the harmonica and slide around stage, but they're not just a fictitious group — The Blues Brothers were the real deal. Even after Belushi's death, the group continues to rotate members for performances around the country.
