Mojo Nixon (born Neill Kirby McMillan, Jr.; August 2, 1957) is a retired American musician. He retired from the music business in 2004, briefly putting his retirement on pause for the release of a solo album in 2009. In recent years, he has hosted several Sirius Satellite Radio shows, and on occasion has performed for special one-time events.
As actor, he played the role of Toad's Dinohattanite form in the 1993 Super Mario Bros. film. Toad's character in the film is a music-driven political critic of President Koopa who briefly performs an anti-Koopa song upon first meeting Mario and Luigi. Mojo Nixon uploaded an extended two minute version of this song on his personal Youtube in 2012. Toad's Goomba form seen later in the film is instead played by John Fifer, though the film still pays homage to Toad's musician roots by equipping him with a harmonica.
