Top Of The Pops: The 20 Best Rock and Roll Movies Ever Made

E ons ago, the Gods handed down a timeless sound to be forever known as Rock and Roll. Shortly afterward, it became heavily commercialized and manifested in countless forms throughout pop culture, including on the silver screen. Rock and Roll came with its own philosophy — a collective manifesto demanding an end to war and capitalist greed, love for all mankind regardless of race or gender, and a screaming good time for all who wished to pursue it. What follows is a Rock n Roll movies list made up of some of what we consider to be the best ever made. These films do their best to capture the spirit, content, style, and attitude of what Rock n Roll movies should be. Rated on quality of story, production style, and soundtrack, here is our list of the best Rock and Roll movies of all time.

Movies About Rock Bands

20. airheads (1994).

Movies about Rock bands  •  Airheads 

Kicking off our Rock and Roll movies list is Airheads, directed by Michael Lehmann . Set in Los Angeles, Airheads is one of the best Rock and Roll movies to come out of the '90s. It’s about a group called The Lone Rangers who take an entire radio station hostage in an attempt to get their demo played on the air.

The film stars Brendan Fraser, Steve Buscemi, and Adam Sandler as the bandmates, featuring Michael Richards, Michael McKean, and Chris Farley. It’s a fun take on the usual “get big” story, throwing in a dash of a Die Hard -esque thriller with a lot of great music jokes. It’s no masterpiece but the jokes are decent, the story has a great premise and the band’s music’s not too bad.

  • Good Genre Jokes
  • Good Premise
  • Believable Air Playing
  • Flat Character Arcs
  • Annoying Characters
  • Fraser Can’t Sing

Best Rock Band Movies

  • Does It ROCK? — Yes. The story’s about chasing dreams, rocking out, and never giving up. It’s earned its place among the best rock band movies.
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 23%

Animated Rock And Roll Movies

19. heavy metal (1981).

Animated Rock and Roll Movies  •  The Making Of Heavy Metal

This animated fantasy movie is basically a bunch of early metal album art come to life. More an anthological accompaniment to a soundtrack, Heavy Metal is a series of dystopian fantasy vignettes linked together by its narrator, an immortal and all powerful green orb known as “The Loc-Nar.” The chapters are filled with space trials, sword fights, and a mixture of original scores and '80s Rock Music as the Loc-Nar regales us with stories of its many destructive exploits throughout the ages. 

The rotoscope animation style is incredibly detailed. The film was inspired by a comic magazine series of the same name. Many people are surprised to discover it featured the voices of Eugene Levy and John Candy. The soundtrack is furnished with '80s hits from the likes of Devo, Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Sammy Hagar, and many more.  

  • “Goes For It”
  • Epic Sequences
  • Cool Production Design
  • Gritty Style
  • Kind Of Slow

  • Does it ROCK? — YES. The music selection could be a little stronger, but read that second sentence about the plot again.
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 70% 

Rock Music Movies

18. 200 motels (1971).

 Best Rock Movies  •  Making of 200 Motels

Next on our rock movies list and cited as the first feature film to have been shot on video, 200 Motels. Frank Zappa’s autobiographical Surrealist tribute to the special kind of insanity that comes with life on the road in a Rock band. Like much of Zappa’s music, the film is completely absurd and has no real target audience other than perhaps the creator himself. 

The plot is a literal slide into insanity as Frank and his band go crazy whilst cooped up in the small town of Centerville in the middle of a long tour. Scenes are loaded with experimental effects, acidic color manipulation and speed changes abound, giving the film a flavor of the wild and grating flare Zappa was known for. It’s no surprise this pioneer of music ended up on our best Rock and Roll movies list.

The story references real conflicts that were arising in the group, and much of the dialogue comes from secret recordings Zappa took of his bandmates. The film boasts a soundtrack loaded with new songs, orchestral arrangements and concert footage and features cameos from Ringo Starr, Keith Moon, and The London Philharmonic Orchestra. 

  • Highly Experimental
  • Boldly Surreal
  • Awesome Music
  • Dated/Juvenile Humor
  • Hard To Finish
  • Dissonant/Alienating

Movies About Rock And Roll Bands

  • Does it ROCK? — Yes. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but this film doesn’t care. It’s about pushing limits, freaking out, life on the road, and sick grooves. 
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 57%

Old Rock N Roll Movies

17. head (1968).

Old Rock n Roll Movies  •  Head

In a way,  Head  is a celebration of the end of The Monkees, a sort of death trip in the collective mind of the group that inspired one of the best Rock and Roll movies ever. It came at a time when the band was beginning to pull apart, and the craze that they were once a part of was waning.

The film was directed by Bob Rafelson and co-written by Jack Nicholson, who would collaborate again on Five Easy Pieces . The movie is a collection of absurdist shorts that flow in and out with an airy stream of consciousness.

Richard Lester’s A Hard Day’s Night featuring The Beatles was widely considered to be the first ever music film, a new way for studios to showcase their golden boys without the hassle of a global tour.

What Lester created just three years before is murdered, dismembered, and reassembled into a psychedelic Frankenstein in the flashing frames of Head. The skits and music numbers feature ink film coloring, crazy jump cuts , and nonsensical Surrealist struggles before the band comes right out and denounces their own legacy.

  • Offbrand/Unexpected
  • Not much Story
  • Music’s Just Okay
  • Jumpy/Complicated

Best Rock Movies

  • Does It ROCK? — Totally. Maybe not in a traditional sense, and the Monkees never totally escaped their cheesy reputation, but this movie is about an industry created boy band shedding their skin as a product and criticizing the very “pop” sensibilities that made them a sensation.
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 75%

Rock And Roll High School Movie

16. rock ‘n’ roll high school (1979).

Rock ‘n’ Roll High School

This entry on our Rock movies list is every Teen-Rocker’s fantasy as told through the story of young Riff Randell, a student at Vince Lombardi’s high school. Riff wrote a song for her favorite band the Ramones, and is dying to get it to them, but her tickets are confiscated by the evil principal Togar. She eventually succeeds in reaching them and the band helps Riff lead a student rebellion that ends in an altercation with the police, a student walkout, and a performance of the film’s title track as the kids burn their school to the ground.

The tone comes with a twinge of absurdism, and the movie may not be as polished as say, Grease , or other high school-set Rock music movies. It’s a spunky, youthful musical filled with high energy sequences and lots of fun slapstick “Rock Out” gags: glass shattering from amplifiers, portraits of administrators shaking off the walls, and Marky drumming on a rolling plywood platform down a locker-lined hallway flanked by an army of rocking adolescents.

The rebellious students’ wardrobes pops against the uniformity of the school colors. This aesthetic clash against the establishment underscores the rebellion against the institutions hellbent on stopping the Rock. Most of the shots are framed tightly, and they’re usually jam packed with actors filling every moment in this exaggerated Rock-world with frantic energy, all coming together to make one of the best rock movies of the '70s.

  • High Energy
  • Lost Of Fun
  • Pervy Humor
  • A Bit Cheesy

Best Rock And Roll Movies

  • Does It ROCK? — HELL yeah. It’s a bit of a bubblegum portrayal, but the whole motivation of the story is to “Rock the roof” off the school.
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 81%

15. Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

Behind The Scenes of: Bohemian Rhapsody

Next on our Rock and Roll movies list is Bohemian Rhapsody .  Rami Malek got his Oscar portraying the prolific Freddie Mercury. The film gets high marks for the detailed and realistic portrayal of the band’s Live Aid performance. Most rock biopics follow an incredibly similar formula and this one is no exception, but it’s a playful ride and had the benefit of close consultation from guitarist Brian May and the surviving members of the band.

The film features a cameo from Mike Myers as a music producer who condemns the film’s titular song as a boondoggle. This is, of course, a cheeky reference to the song being featured in Myers’ own classic film Wayne's World .  The soundtrack is loaded with songs representing most periods in the band’s career thoroughly, melding together to become one of the best Rock and Roll movie soundtracks in recent film history.

  • Killer Song Choice
  • Great Wardrobe
  • Great Performances
  • Bad Fake Teeth
  • Flawed Chronology
  • Mildly Dramatized

Bohemian Rhapsody

  • Does It ROCK? — It does. The story is formulaic but Mercury’s life story was still a rich one, and the music alone could carry the film if it needed. 
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 60%

Best Rock Music Movies

14. detroit rock city (1999).

Best Rock and Roll Movies  •  Detroit Rock City

Detroit Rock City is a staple on any Rock and Roll movies list. It’s about four friends in 1978 who are desperate to see Kiss play in Detroit and are willing to die trying. The film is a pretty standard stoner adventure set in their golden period; a coming of age story projected through the lens of Rock and Roll values.

The visuals are nothing to write home about, but the story is a fun romp and a celebration of adolescent defiance. The “us and them” feeling that fueled so much of the Rock and Roll movement. The journey is filled with disco-era rivalries, head-shop humor, and a masterfully shot striptease from a young Edward Furlong. This film is a snapshot of rebellion when the going gets tough, and reminds its viewers that when you want something you can’t let anything stop you.

  • Heartfelt Conflict
  • Humurous Situations
  • Feel Great Ending
  • Kiss Is Just Okay
  • Mildly Sexist Humor
  • Choppy/Repetitive

Detroit Rock City

  • Does It ROCK? — Indubitably. Rock is the motivation, Rock is what’s at stake, Rock is what drives every character epiphany. “Gotta lose your mind in Detroit....”
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 48%

13. Yellow Submarine (1968)

Behind The Scenes Of: Yellow Submarine

Although the band members themselves had no real part in it except for a brief cameo at the end, this film has always held an important place in The Beatles’ legacy. It was their last obligation in a three picture deal with United Artists and utilized a mixture of animation methods . The film’s style influenced artists like Peter Max and Terry Gilliam, and really flexed some muscle in terms of what animation could do. 

The story starts on a bored and forlorn Ringo who is recruited to help save a faraway place called Pepperland from an invading race of creatures called the Blue Meanies. While the story is mostly a loose string of setups for musical numbers, the main conflict of the plot rings with the philosophical principles of the hippie sentiment of Rock music at that time: down with war, leave the land alone, all you need is love.

It’s a unique visual experience and a great love letter to the imaginative and transformative power of music. The soundtrack includes many Beatles’ staples, and some fantastic songs new songs left off previous albums: “Only a Northern Song,” “Baby You’re A Rich Man,” “Hey Bulldog,” and “All Together Now.”

  • Beautiful Imagery
  • Great Music
  • Unique Style
  • Ambling, Slow
  • Childish, Silly
  • Nonsensical At Times

Classic Rock And Roll Movies

Yellow submarine.

  • Does it ROCK? — Yes. But the film comes from the early days of the genre and carries a somewhat mild attitude.
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 97%

12. Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

Rock and Roll Movies  •  Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

Basically a spoof of every rock bio-pic that had ever been made, and some which hadn’t yet, The Dewey Cox Story (2007) covers the prolific career of a fictional rockstar who essentially had some hand in every significant moment of the genre’s history. The widely-scoped tale spoofs scenes from Ray , Walk The Line , and The Doors , while borrowing inspiration for jokes from the lives and works of The Beatles, Brian Wilson, Jerry Garcia, Bob Dylan, and Elvis.

The film is part genre spoof, part straight up comedy, and part love letter to the legacy of classic rock. The film stars John C. Reilly as Dewey Cox, with Chris Parnell and Tim Meadows as his bandmates, with Jenna Fischer. The story touches on just about every genre trope in the book; crazy drug abuse, megalomania, a rise, a fall, heartbreak, childhood trauma, and reconciliation upon the realization of an artist’s opus.

The film was directed by James Kasdan and co-written by Kasdan and Judd Apatow, who had worked together previously on Freaks and Geeks . Reilly is perfectly cast to take the audience on the emotional roller coaster that is the life of Dewey Cox, and he performs all of the original music written for the film. All in all, it’s an incredibly ambitious comedy, but works well enough to earn its place as a classic.

  • Great References
  • Slightly Too Long
  • Cheesy Humor
  • Predictable

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

  • Does It ROCK? — A little bit. It’s a little too jokey to “rock” itself, but displays a great deal of knowledge on the subject and celebrates the history.
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 74%

80’s Rock And Roll Movies

11. bill and ted’s excellent adventure.

The Making Of: Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure

“Be Excellent To Each Other,” a simple teaching from simple men. These are the words of Bill and Ted; two high school rockers who receive the help of a time traveler to pass their History class. They also learn it’s their destiny to write a song that will unite the world in peace. The plot sounds complicated, but it’s surprisingly easy to absorb, making for one of the best Rock and Roll movies ever.

The titular duo collect significant historical figures like Joan of Arc and Genghis Kahn to help them study for their final. The journey is filled with air guitar moments, punctuated with non-diegetic shredding solos, and the 2nd Act builds to one of the best comedy montages of all time. 

  • Goofy As Hell
  • Loveable Characters
  • Great Concept
  • Heroes Are Idiots

Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure

  • Does It ROCK? — Yes. It has to if it’s going to save the world.

Top Ten Rock And Roll Movies

10. wayne’s world (1992).

Top Rock and Roll Movies  •  Wayne's World

Whether you’ve seen it or not, you’ve felt this film’s influence. From the early days of Mike Myers’ film career, Wayne’s World showcases the prolific comedian’s ability for creating timeless characters. It’s directed by Penelope Spheeris who was well versed as a filmmaker in the history and nature of Rock and Roll, sharpening her teeth on Megadeth music videos and her incredible music documentary series, The Fall Of Western Civilization .

The script is brimming with so many excellent one liners you’ve probably repeated them without even realizing. In classic Myers’ style, the movie is filled with fourth wall breaking jokes, meta references to classic films, send-ups of commercial pop culture, and Gonzo swings in tone played up for ultimate comedic effect.

The plot centers around the selling of Wayne and Garth’s TV show as they face against pressure to “sell out” their classic style. Between learning to collaborate with his sponsors creatively and his robo-fox bass-playing girlfriend Cassandra romantically, Wayne comes to realize that success comes from remembering what’s real.

  • Great Production Design
  • Amazing Characters
  • Well Done Plot
  • “Confusing Ending”
  • “Ridiculous”
  • In Your Head Forever

Wayne’s World

  • Does it ROCK? — Exsqueeze me? The rockin' covers from Cassandra’s band? Cameos from the likes of Meatloaf and Alice Cooper? Wayne and Garth are the walkman-toting headbanging children in all of us, and their story rocks hard. Party on Wayne, Party on Garth.

9. purple rain (1984).

Rock n Roll Movies  •  Purple Rain

Based on the life of Prince himself, Purple Rain is a highly emotional musical film about a young rocker known as “The Kid” and his band The Revolution. The Kid suffers under the weight of a difficult home life with his physically abusive father, also a former musician, and his emotionally abusive mother.

Cinematographer Donald Thorin, known for  Midnight Run ,  The Golden Child , and  Head of State , captures every bit of flare and charisma through the lens. The lighting reflects the film’s somber atmosphere perfectly, giving way to bursts of triumphant light as The Kid seeks the solace that being on stage will provide.

Prince is one of the greatest performers of all time and he pulls no punches on screen. The theme is established in the opening number with a quick cut montage with lyrics that underscore the protagonist’s outlook (“In this life, you’re on your own”). 

The wardrobe is immaculate on Prince and his compatriots, and his signature purple motorcycle and the the film won an Oscar for Best Original Song Score. It proved to have one of the best Rock and Roll movie soundtracks, and housed some of Prince’s most successful tracks: “When Doves Cry,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” and of course, “Purple Rain.”

  • True Story Elements
  • Musical Performances
  • Slightly Overacted
  • Cosmetic Arc

Best Rock Movies Ever

Purple rain.

  • Does It ROCK? — You know it does. Purple Rain is a nuanced effort to examine the creative process for all of its egotism AND vulnerability. Plus, just watch Prince shred. 
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 70%

8. Wild Zero (1999)

Movies About Rock Bands  •  Wild Zero

Wild Zero is about a Japanese rock band Guitar Wolf fighting off an army of alien-created Zombies with their young blood, Ace, and his girlfriend, Tobio. The band is composed of leather clad greasers forever fueled by the power of Rock and Roll, and they don’t let you forget it. They scream it at you.

The movie plays mostly as a B-horror movie with all the blood, monster make up, and more blood to boot. There’s motorcycles, explosions, throwing star guitar picks, and more than a few exploding heads all set to a hard, fuzzy soundtrack. The movie has also been praised for its tasteful handling of some plot points involving a transgender character which was unfortunately rare in many films of that period and genre.

  • Great Songs
  • Wild And Fun
  • High Action
  • Pretty Intense
  • Repetitive gags
  • Blows Out Speakers
  • Does it ROCK? — A dude screams “Rock and Roll never dies!” while people are getting their heads and fingers blown off. If that doesn't rock, I don't know what does.
  • 10/10 Rocks
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 100%

Best Rock Movies Of All Time

7. the rocky horror picture show  .

The Rocky Horror Picture Show Behind The Scenes

Part late-night comedy, part monster movie, and part musical extravaganza,  The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) follows Brad and Janet played by Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon. When their car gets a flat, their only option is to use the phone at a nearby mansion hosting a “Transylvanian Convention.” Upon meeting the host, Dr. Frankenfurter (Tim Curry), a self-proclaimed “sweet transvestite from transexual Transylvania,” their world turns upside down. 

The set and costumes really steal the show, often juxtaposing the high energy musical scenes against a drab and dusty haunted mansion. The film’s well known musical number, “Let’s Do The Time Warp Again,” captures the many Transylvanians flail stiffly through a line dance, like a low-budget Broadway show performed by reanimated corpses.

Cutaways explaining dance moves and Frankenfurter’s peppered direct addresses to the audience lean into the B movie element and further the otherworldly style. The movie’s macabre and silly sexuality developed a well known cult following, still booking theaters for midnight shows all over and even inspired a TV remake with Laverne Cox in 2016.

  • Ridiculous Characters
  • Fun Cult Following
  • Crazy Story
  • Possible PC Problems
  • Hard To Follow

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

  • Does It ROCK? — It does indeed. The confidence of this film can’t be understated, and without it the project would never have worked. Its sheer animal magnetism helped to establish one of the largest and most widespread cult traditions in American pop culture. 
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 79%

Rock Opera Movies

6. pink floyd: the wall (1980).

Best Rock and Roll Movies  •  Pink Floyd: The Wall

Brooding on the darker philosophical side of the Rock World, Pink Floyd: The Wall is a feature length dramatization of Floyd’s masterpiece of the same name. The Wall is a snapshot of a breakdown at the peak of an artist’s career. It starts here, and it ends here, and every moment in between plays like a recovered memory amidst an iowaska trip.

The film stars a fiery Bob Geldoff as the psychotic protagonist Pink, who is slowly slipping into a manic state of disillusionment. The scenes mix mediums, showcasing detailed animated sequences from illustrator Gerald Scarfe and extravagant, moodily-lit sequences from director Alan Parker. Parker worked extensively in musical film, known for directing many well known titles including Fame , Evita , and The Commitments .

The violent imagery creates a dark visual psyche through which we ponder the effects of war on society, trauma on children, isolation on sanity, and the power of man’s idols. Geldoff performs vocals on many songs from the album, stocking the soundtrack with unique renditions made just for the film, and giving it a life of its own outside the studio album it was based on.

This film is the perfect visual realization of everything their music is about — the helplessness of the individual in a broken world, the sickness of society at large, and the madness that lies inside us all.

  • Incredibly Evocative
  • Powerful Music/Lyrics
  • Beautifully Animated
  • Anxiety Inducing
  • Not Much Redemption

Pink Floyd: The Wall

  • Does It ROCK? — Hell yeah. Pink Floyd has always seethed in their own unique corner of the genre, approaching so much of their music with an almost academic introspection paired with dark and bluesy grooves.
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 69%

5. Tommy (1975)

Rock Opera Movies  •  Tommy

Though the concept existed previously, The Who is the first band credited with marketing an album as a “Rock Opera.” The distinction being that it tells a story, and all dialog is communicated through song. The story is about a young boy named Tommy who is rendered deaf, dumb, and blind as a boy. The plot follows his mother and her boyfriend’s failed attempts to cure Tommy until he becomes a national celebrity for his exceptional pinball skills.

Soon, Tommy’s senses return and he becomes an evangelical figure who tries to pass wisdom onto a mass of thankless followers. He eventually blinds and deafens them all, in hopes that the inward journey will help them find peace. Instead, they riot and murder his parents and Tommy flees into the mountains. 

It’s an age-old tale, one I’m sure everyone can relate to, but it’s done in magnificently over the top style. The soundtrack is filled with covers of The Who’s songs from exceptional artists like Elton John, Tina Turner, and Eric Clapton. The elaborate costumes and sets evoke classic studio musicals of the Golden Age, and the shots whip pan their way through roaring crowds giving every moment the energy of a traveling rock show. Packed with commentary on religion, society, and idolatry, Tommy is a powerful visual and musical experience.

  • Great Guest Stars
  • Unique Style/Design
  • Bonkers Story
  • Pretty Long
  • Awful Lip Syncing
  • Does It ROCK? — Absolutely. From the sweat-soaked performances to its indictments of modern sensibilities, and the insane level of production. 

4. Tenacious D In The Pick Of Destiny

Rock n Roll Movies  •  Tenacious D In The Pick Of Destiny

In every best rock movies list I’ve read, there is one exceptional classic that gets passed over time and time again: Tenacious D’s origin story masterpiece, The Pick of Destiny . Directed by Liam Lynch, who got his start directing the D’s music videos and TV show, the story starts with a young Jack Black being thrown out of his parents’ home for rocking too hard and too often.

Jack forms an alliance with an exceptional guitar player named Kyle Gass and the two embark on a quest to find a legendary guitar pick. The pick is made from the devil’s tooth and fabled to contain the very spirit of rock and roll, all in hopes of selling a record and paying their rent. The adventure is laced with signature Jack Black physical comedy, a phenomenal rock training montage, hilarious chase scenes, and a sensationally colorful and indulgent mushroom trip musical number.

The plot is laden with references to cinematic masterpieces and rock legends, classic jokes and moments from the band’s self-referential musical lore, and the soundtrack is produced to perfection containing all original compositions made for the film.

  • Surprisingly Polished
  • Fun and Original
  • Sales Prevented Sequel
  • Mildly Gross Humor
  • Ended Too Soon

Tenacious D In The Pick Of Destiny

  • Does it ROCK? — It’d be difficult to rock harder. This story features an original soundtrack, an insane legend about the history of Rock and Roll, and every character’s flaw/motivation/conflict is related to Rock and Roll.
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 52%

3. almost famous (2000).

Movies About Rock Bands  •  Almost Famous

Many Cameron Crowe films are widely considered to be classics —  Jerry Maguire , Say Anything , Elizabethtown —   Almost F amous might be his most widely beloved. Nostalgic for a time and place gone by, the story follows a young writer named William Miller, who aspires to be a Rock and Roll journalist. He finagles a press pass, meets some groupies at a Sabbath show, and submits a writeup to Rolling Stone who then pays him to shadow one of his favorite working acts on the road.

Through a labyrinth of sexed out, drugged up, Rock and Roll antics William stares into the soul the music that means so much to him and watches as the scene pulls apart at the seams. Themes of unrequited love, transient families, greed, and youthful naïveté paint pictures of a genre built on a lie. It’s the story of what Rock and Roll became at its worst moments, when the people who were making it fell victim to ego and desire.

The ensemble cast is stocked with familiar faces and great talent including Kate Hudson, Zooey Deschanel, Frances McDormand, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Almost Famous is an incredibly heartfelt coming of age story amidst the death of Rock, when the masses were realizing that they had bought into an idea that might not have been as pure as it seemed.

Almost Famous

  • Does It ROCK? — In the most sincere way possible. It’s not all smashing guitars and explosions, but it’s a piece for people who love what they feel in the music. It tracks the ups and downs of creative life and admires the perks of the Rock and Roll philosophies while examining its less than healthy attitudes and pretensions. 
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 89%

2. School Of Rock (2003)

Rock n Roll Movies List  •  School of Rock

Rock and Roll culture’s influence on the works of Richard Linklater is no secret. It should therefore come as no surprise that he directed one of the most beloved Rock and Roll movies of the modern age starring Jack Black, Joan Cusack, and a bunch of prolifically talented kid musicians.

School of Rock is a rare film, the tone of which falls perfectly on a line between movies for families and movies for adults. Jack Black plays a down-on-his-luck rocker who gets kicked out of his band and poses as a substitute teacher at a private school to pay the rent. He’s the type of guy who could use more talent but knows more than anyone what it means to rock. He soon discovers his class of uptight preppy students all have significant musical ability, and forgoes all regular curriculum in favor of coaching them to win an upcoming battle of the bands.

Black was made for this role, and his electric spark on screen pulls subtle greatness out of his young co-stars. He teaches them to believe in themselves and to never fear chasing their dreams, just as Rock music has always taught us. The soundtrack is loaded with classic rock hits, and the battle of the band performance from the kids in the band will rock your world.

  • Fantastic Cast
  • Great Soundtrack
  • Lots Of Heart
  • Some Say “Overhyped”
  • People Hate Jack Black

School Of Rock

  • Does It ROCK? — Hard. Endlessly. Forever and ever. This film is about the timelessness of Rock. It’s for all ages, and it’s for everyone, and no matter where life takes you, Rock will always take you back.

1. this is spinal tap (1984).

Best Rock and Roll Movies  •  This is Spinal Tap

This is Spinal Tap is a mockumentary directed by Rob Reiner who appears in the film as the project’s fictional director Martin Di Bergi. It's also the first feature co-written by Christopher Guest , who plays lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel. It follows a fictional '70s band in interviews and performances on an American tour as their popularity is in serious decline. A direct parody of the rise and fall “behind the music” tale, the dialogue is saturated with hilarious jokes about rockers and their world. 

The cast is fantastic and features guest appearances from Fran Drescher, Ed Begley Jr., Billy Crystal, and more. The cinéma vérité style adds a rich life to the mostly improvised scenes, credited to cinematographer Peter Smokler who was well-versed in the style having previously shot several real documentaries, as well as the infamous doc-styled protest fiction, Punishment Park .  

All the songs performed in the film were written by the band, and play like legitimate Hard Rock bangers. Try listening to “Sex Farm,” “Big Bottom,” or “Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight,” and tell me Spinal Tap isn’t just as good a group as many of their “real” contemporaries. The world created in the film takes on such an organic life with a great music/plot balance, countless, unforgettable quotes pile up in scene after scene, and the final result is one you’ll never forget.

Better version from Stockholm

Check out the Gallery for new photos from New York!

Record companies, agents, publishers, have come and gone. Tapes have been locked away, fished out again, and found to be not much more than rubble. The Movies come from a time before CD. What is left?

This archive site presents Movies material from a limited range of sources. Others may have better versions, and perhaps in time we might inherit some of them. Meanwhile we have engaged the renowned archaeologist Dr Hindsight to restore what he can. The material is accessible via menu options at the top of this page. Check out the REMIX option for some (recently acquired) studio-quality tracks.

Apart from REMIX, we are looking mainly at old vinyl and a bunch of tapes, some with unreleased material, some live tracks and scraps of video. The vinyl (especially the first two albums) is in bad shape. We have tried to remove the noise, but there's not much you can do about that crack in the one copy you have, made by some twit with a beer glass in 1982. The condition of the tapes is often bad. Tape of this period is known to drop oxide, for lubricants to wear out, and for the sound gradually to turn to mud.

15 craziest band cameos in movies.

Music and movie fans rejoice! Crank the volume up to 11 and check out this list of 15 of the most rocking band cameos in movies.

A good movie cameo can enhance a scene by adding recognizable figures like actors, musicians, professional athletes, models, and politicians. Films often include cameos from these celebrities to capitalize on the state of pop culture at the time of the film's release. Whether it's a nostalgic throwback during a rebooted movie by a character from the original version, or someone at the top of the charts today, cameos are fun additions to film that fans enjoy and eat up.

Many movies have included guest appearances by popular bands, either in small roles or concerts. These bands often contribute to the film's soundtrack and look to get record sales bumps by their appearances. The cameos on this list can serve as major plot points or as background filler depending on the context in which they appear. Let's take a look at 16 Craziest Band Cameos In Movies.

16. Wilson Phillips - Bridesmaids

at the movies rock band

Consisting of the daughters of The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson and John & Michelle Phillips of The Mamas & The Papas, Wilson Phillips is a vocalist group that gained popularity for their 1990 mega-hit Hold On . The group would be nominated for 5 Grammy Awards, 2 American Music Awards, and would win the Billboard Music Award for Single of the Year for Hold On .

During the 2011 romantic comedy Bridesmaids , starring Krsten Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy and Rose Byrne, it's revealed that Wilson Phillips are lead character Annie's (Kristen Wiig) favorite band and make a cameo at the end of the film , performing Hold On during Lillian's (Maya Rudolph) wedding. After Annie's feud and reconciliation with Helen (Rose Byrne), she returns as the maid of honor. The girls dance along with the group as Lillian and her husband walk to their limo at the end of the ceremony. Hold On would also be included on the film's soundtrack.

15. Everclear – Loser

at the movies rock band

2000's teen rom-com Loser would reunite American Pie actors Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari in a movie that follows the story of small-town college student, Paul (Biggs). Paul earns a college scholarship and must maintain a high GPA in order to keep it, but has trouble studying due to his rich, party-loving roommates. Paul moves into an animal shelter to escape the constant distractions and helps care for the animals in exchange for his stay. He also becomes enamored with a girl named Dora (Suvari) who is sleeping with their professor (Greg Kinnear).

Paul would bump into Dora one night and invite her to an Everclear concert, as he previously learned they are her favorite band. Dora agrees to meet at the concert after a job interview, which she doesn't get. Paul's roommate Adam sees her and invites her to a party where he slips a roofie into her drink. Paul returns home from the concert, dejected, finding an unresponsive Dora, where he takes her to the hospital. Everclear play So Much For The Afterglow and I Will Buy You A New Life during the concert, both of which appear on the film's soundtrack.

14. Primus - Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey

at the movies rock band

The follow-up to 1989's Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure , Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey continues the story of the aforementioned characters, played by Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter. The music of their band, the Wyld Stallyns, has created a utopian future society much to the chagrin of film's villain, Chuck De Nomolos (Joss Ackland). He steals a time-traveling phone booth to send Bill and Ted robots back to prevent them from winning the San Dimas Battle of the Bands contest, erasing the future they created. Craziness ensues as the spectre of Death gets involved with Bill and Ted's souls, as they were killed by their evil doppelgangers. The help of an alien named Station sees the construction of good versions of Bill and Ted robots, who are able to defeat the evil ones.

As the Wyld Stallyns are preparing for their set, experimental rock band Primus is seen on-stage playing the song Tommy The Cat . Tommy The Cat was also featured on the film's soundtrack. Also making cameos in the film are Faith No More's Jim Martin, and future Linkin Park guitarist Brad Delson.

13. Morris Day & The Time – Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

at the movies rock band

Recent performers at this year’s Grammy Awards playing behind Bruno Mars, Morris Day & The Time formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1981, mixing genres of funk, soul, R&B, dance and rock ‘n roll. Music icon Prince would originally select the band members as a part of his contract at Warner Brothers.

The band would see numerous break-ups, reunions and line-up changes during their still-active career and had numerous singles reach charts like the US Hot 100 and US R&B such as Jungle Love and Jerk It Out . While the younger generation of people may not immediately know the band strictly from their music, they may recognize them from their appearance in 2001’s Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back .

Part of the Viewaskewniverse that features the titular characters reprising their roles in other films like Dogma , Clerks 1 &2 , Chasing Amy and Mallrats , Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back follows the stoner duo on their quest for love, redemption and freedom for their chimpanzee friend. During the end of the film, Jay and Silent Bob happen upon a Morris Day & The Time concert as the band plays Jungle Love during the end credits.

12. Fall Out Boy – Sex Drive

at the movies rock band

2008's Sex Drive , starring Josh Zuckerman, Amanda Crew and Clark Duke, is a raunchy comedy that see the main character, Josh, travel from Illinois to Tennesse to meet a girl he met online for sex. The twist - the girl is actually conning Josh in order to steal his car, a 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge, which he took from his brother without permission. During the trio's travels, their car breaks down and is towed by an Amish man, played by Seth Green, who offers to fix it.

While at the Amish farm, the Amish traidtion of Rumspringa is in full-effect as the Amish teens are drinking and partying. During the party, Chicago-based pop-punk band Fall Out Boy is seen playing a concert for the drunken teens. Josh sees his crush, Felicia, dancing with best friend Lance, prompting him to leave the festivities, though Lance was using Felicia as a wingman to score with an Amish girl.

11. Good Charlotte – Not Another Teen Movie

at the movies rock band

The "spoof" genre has certainly fallen on hard times in the past decade with films like Date Movie , Vampires Suck , Fifty Shades of Black and Meet The Spartans , but back in 2001's Not Another Teen Movie the schtick still worked. Starring Supergirl 's Chyler Leigh, Captain America himself, Chris Evans, Jaime Pressly as well as cameos from other actors portraying spoofs on their characters from movies like Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Can't Hardly Wait ,   Not Another Teen Movie payed comedic homage to classic 90's teen movies like Varsity Blues , She's All That and 10 Things I Hate About You .

During the prom scene , Maryland-based pop-punk band Good Charlotte serve as the in-house band providing covers of popular songs like OMD's If You Leave , The Strangelove's I Want Candy , and The Beach Boys' Don't Talk (Put Your Hand On My Shoulder) as the characters "professionally dance" in a Grease -like way, complete with hand-jives.

10. Oingo Boingo – Back To School

at the movies rock band

1986's Back To School, starring legendary funny man Rodney Dangerfield, follows the story of an uneducated father who goes to go college in order to bond with his downtrodden son as he learns that he cannot buy happiness or an education. With co-stars like Robert Downey Jr, William Zabka and Sam Kinison, back to school will remain one of Dangerfield's greatest films that also had a killer soundtrack. 80's New Wave band Oingo Boingo would make a cameo appearance during the film, as frontman Danny Elfman would also serve as the soundtrack's composer.

During a party , Rodney can be seen dancing and oogling co-eds as he throws out crude one-liners in a way only he could. A baby-faced Robert Downey Jr is also seen making fart noises with his mouth and gyrating on the floor while Elfman and the rest of Oingo Boingo play their classic hit Dead Man's Party .

9. Twisted Sister – Pee-wee’s Big Adventure

at the movies rock band

During the 1980's, actor Paul Reubens brought the character of Pee-wee Herman into the homes of children everywhere with his Emmy Award-winning children's series Pee-wee's Playhouse that ran from 1986-1991. Pee-wee would also make the jump to the big screen with films like Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Big Top Pee-wee , and 2016's Pee-wee's Big Holiday , though Reubens' infamous scandal would put an end to the character for the better part of 2 decades.

During Pee-wee's Big Adventure , the titular character is being chased through a Hollywood studio lot, cutting through a Godzilla film shoot and into a Twisted Sister music video. Frontman Dee Snider and the boys are shooting a video for Burn In Hell as Pee-wee nearly avoids crashing into the car the band is playing on, as the parade of movie props attached to Pee-wee's bike, including Godzilla, crash into it. The look on Dee Snider's face as an inbound Godzilla on Santa's sleigh is set to slam the car is priceless

8. Alice Cooper – Wayne’s World

at the movies rock band

Based on the popular Saturday Night Live skit, 1992's Wayne' World starring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey blends comedy with rock & roll. The legendary duo, who host a public-access show from Wayne's parents' basement, thought they hit the big time when TV producer Benjamin Oliver (Rob Lowe) offers to buy the rights to their show for $10,000. Benjamin is trying to steal away Wayne's girlfriend Cassandra (Tia Carrere) and distracts Wayne with Alice Cooper tickets and backstage passes.

Wayne and Garth attend the concert, as Alice Cooper plays Feed My Frankenstein during the concert scene. After the show, the pair head backstage to meet the band. During their conversation with Alice and the band, they give a detailed history lesson on the origins of the name Milwaukee, stating that it's an Algonquin name that means " the good land " and citing more informative, fun facts. Alice invites Wayne and Garth to stick around and hang out, prompting them to drop to their knees and proclaim their unworthiness.

7. Aerosmith – Wayne’s World 2

Aerosmith performing live in Wayne's World 2

The popularity of  Wayne's World naturally spawned a sequel, as Wayne's World 2 hit theatres in 1993, a year after the first film. Mike Myers and Dana Carvey return to reprise their roles as Wayne and Garth, this time attempting to throw a concert they've dubbed "Waynestock" after Wayne has a dream featuring Jim Morrison and a " weird naked Indian ". Morrison tells Waye that it is his destiny is to put on the concert, with Wayne hiring Morrison's former roadie Del Preston (Ralph Brown).

Before the dream, Wayne and Garth attend an Aerosmith concert , where the band plays Dude Looks Like A Lady . The pair have backstage passes and get high fives from them as they make their way off stage, again proclaiming their unworthiness just like when they met Alice Cooper. Wayne struggles to get the fesival off the ground and deals with another man yet again trying to steal girlfriend, Cassandra, as Christopher Walken's character, Bobby, has his eyes on her and nearly marries her. Waynestock is eventually booked, as Aerosmith hits the stage playing Shut Up and Dance to a very large crowd as the end-credits roll.

6. Cannibal Corpse – Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

at the movies rock band

Jim Carrey's style of comedy will surely cement him as one of the all-time greats, but his performance as the animal-loving sleuth in 1994's  Ace Ventura: Pet Detective helped to bring him to the forefront. With the film premise set on finding the kidnapped Miami Dolphins mascot, Snowflake, before the Super Bowl, the film showcases his witty humor and outrageousness.

As Ace is attempting to locate Snowflake during the beginning of the film, he visits a hacker named Woodstock that has a secret office inside of a music club. While making his way to the office, Ace ventures through a rowdy crowd attending a concert. Later on in the film as Ace is being chased by thugs, he runs through a Cannibal Corpse concert , getting on-stage and performing with the band as they break into Hammer Smashed Face . Ace lends his "vocals" by nearly swallowing the microphone and gyrating all over the stage. Ace is able to crowd-surf away from the thugs as they are pummeled by the concert-goers.

5. Blink 182 – American Pie

at the movies rock band

The 1999 teen sex comedy American Pie features a group of friends, played by Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nichols and Eddie Kaye Thomas, on their quest to lose their virginity before graduating from high school. The film helped to create to popular "milf" acronym and is known for its raunchy comedic moments such as Jason Biggs' character making love to a pie and was parodied heavily in Not Another Teen Movie .

During the scene where Jim (Biggs) has Slovokian exchange student Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth) being secretly filmed via webcam, punk band Blink 182 is shown watching the footage as Jim has accidentally put the live stream all over the internet. The band watches on in a garage where they were rehearsing along with a pet monkey, as their song Mutt is played while Jim runs back and forth between his house and his friend Kevin's. The film incorrectly credits former Blink 182 Scott Raynor instead of current drummer Travis Barker, who actually appeared in the film.

4. The Dan Band – Old School

at the movies rock band

The comedy stylings of The Dan Band are well-known thanks to their appearances in films like Starsky & Hutch and The Hangover , but their first appearance in 2003's Old School helped them to gain popularity. Led by actor/comedian Dan Finnerty, The Dan Band is known for their covers of female-performed pop songs with added obscenities. Their first appearance in Old School during the beginning of the film shows the band performing covers of Bonnie Tyler's Total Eclipse of the Heart and Lady by Styx.

During Total Eclipse of the Heart , Dan adds f-bombs into the lyrics that grab the attention of the wedding guests. It's tough to hear the song today without adding in these lyrics and singing them as loud as possible. The band would also perform Roberta Flack's Feel Like Makin' Love during a Bar Mitzvah in Starsky & Hutch as well as 50 Cent's Candy Shop in The Hangover .

3. Reel Big Fish – BASEketball

at the movies rock band

South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone would look to capitalize from their animated show's popularity by starring in the 1998 sports comedy BASEketball . The film's premise sees the two friends create a new sport, baseketball, which is an amalgamation of basketball and baseball. The sport quickly gains popularity and becomes a national sport, with the friends playing for the Milwaukee Beers team. Though the team would split up and feud during the course of the film, they would reunite to win the Denslow Cup championship.

BASEketball features cameos by athletes Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Dale Earnhardt and Reggie Jackson along with sports commentators Kenny Mayne, Bob Costas, Al Michaels and Dan Patrick. During one of the Beers' games, California ska band Reel Big Fish is seen playing their song Beer in the stands to a sold-out crowd. Beer would be included on the film's soundtrack as well as their cover of A-Ha's Take On Me .

2. Mudhoney – Black Sheep

at the movies rock band

Following the success of  1995's Tommy Boy , Chris Farley and David Spade teamed up again a year later in 1996's Black Sheep . Farley's character plays the bumbling brother of a politician that has his sights set on the governer's mansion in Washington state. In an effort to keep Mike (Farley) away from the press to stop further embarrassment, Al (Tim Matheson) enlists the help of one of his employees (Spade) for the task. During an MTV Rock The Vote rally, Mike inadvertantly stumbles upon the dressing room of a rastafarian band, where he gets high with them.

Mike would be pushed on-stage by Seattle grunge band Mudhoney after he is mistaken for his brother, where he gives a beligerant speech about the power of voting, supporting Al as governor, and tells everyone to " Kill Whitey! ", which kills the mood of the crowd. Mudhoney had just finished their set, playing Poisoned Water Poisons The Mind .

1. Backstreet Boys – This Is The End

at the movies rock band

Chock-full of cameos from celebrities like Emma Watson, Channing Tatum, Michael Cera, Rihanna and Aziz Ansari, to name a few, 2013's apocalyptic comedy This Is The End follows an end of days scenario with main characters Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Seth Rogen, James Franco and Jonah Hill. The beauty of this film, aside from the comedy, is that all the characters portray themselves instead of different characters. The apocalypse erupts during a party at James Franco's house, where the main characters take refuge.

Following the destruction of the world, most of the cast members are killed and a few are raptured to Heaven, as they have performed selfless acts (and are saved from the gigantic satanic beast roaming Earth). In Heaven, Seth and Jay reunite with Craig, who tells them that all of their desires will come true, which prompts boy band the Backstreet Boys to perform their hit Everybody (Backstreet's Back) as the cast members dance along with the band.

Now that we've listed our favorite band appearances, let us know which other ones you would have on your list. Keep in mind that this list is not ranked by the best cameos and that it only features full bands rather than individual musicians and artists.

Why the Band’s ‘The Last Waltz’ Is the Greatest Concert Movie of All Time

By David Fear

'Last Waltz'

“This film should be played loud!” It’s a cliché now, a concert-movie disclaimer that’s become the equivalent of that hippie-dippy tagline from those Freedom Rock compilation ads ( “Well, turn it up, maaaaan.” ) But in the late Seventies, when it first flashed onscreen in all white font against a stark black background before the credits of The Last Waltz , you knew it meant business. Keep moving that volume knob clockwise, folks. Let the needle swing into the red.

Over 40 years ago, The Band gave their final concert in their original lineup, a massive swan song that these Canadian troubadours turned into an all-star spectacle. Calling the event “The Last Waltz,” the group’s de facto leader Robertson — who’d grown tired of being a rock & roll road warrior — and San Francisco promoter Bill Graham staged a no-expense-spared adieu that started with a Thanksgiving feast and ended with everyone from Neil Diamond to Neil Young accompanying the quintet. As far as farewells go, this one was major. And it might have been relegated to the you-had-to-like-have- been -there-man history books had a bearded, jittery Martin Scorsese not decided to ditch some responsibilities and call in some favors. The idea was to simply record the evening for posterity, though the then-35-year-old filmmaker had a few ideas of his own to add in to the mix. What he ended up with was the definitive document of these American-music scholars, an epitaph to a specific era of rock history, and the single greatest concert movie of all time.

Editor’s picks

The 250 greatest guitarists of all time, the 500 greatest albums of all time, the 50 worst decisions in movie history, every awful thing trump has promised to do in a second term.

Martin Scorsese was neck-deep in finishing New York, New York, his ill-fated attempt to fuse Old Hollywood musicals and New Hollywood revisionism, when Robertson and Taplin approached him. The last thing he wanted to do, or was allowed to do by his producers, was take on another project before he delivered a final cut. But the notion of being present at something symbolizing the sun setting on rock’s unruly early adulthood, and with a guest list that read like a who’s who of modern popular music, was an offer he could not refuse. “I don’t have a choice,” Robertson quotes him as saying in the oral history Bill Graham Presents. “I must do it.”

'The Last Waltz': A Concert Becomes a Legend

Watch martin scorsese break down 'the last waltz'.

Had the Taxi Driver director simply instructed his camera crew to point their Panavisions at Robertson & Co., they would have still documented magic: Muddy Waters growling out a lust-fueled “Mannish Boy”; Neil Young leading his fellow Great White Northerners in singing “Helpless,” with behind-a-scrim stealth back-up from Joni Mitchell (and extra help from Bolivia; Helm confirms in his autobiography This Wheel’s on Fire that a “traveling booger matte” was needed to cover up Young’s nostril-centric extracurricular activities ); Van “The Man” Morrison kicking and screaming his way through a soulful “Caravan”; the aforementioned appearance by Dylan, whose “Forever Young” and “Baby, Let Me Follow You Down” (he refused to let Scorsese record all four of his numbers, fearing the footage would overshadow his own Rolling Thunder Revue project Renaldo and Clara ) remind you of the mercurial, majestic bond between Bob and his fellow Americana obsessives.

But watch the way Scorsese and editors Jan Roblee and Yeu-Bun Yee switch between Band players in sync with the beat of “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” (did Helm ever sound better?), or back and forth between Robertson and Eric Clapton as they trade solos. Or how the camera glides behind Ronnie Hawkins and his former “Hawks” as they finish up “Who Do You Love?,” emphasizing the way the group functions as one chugging organism. Or how the framing of the performances, especially “The Shape I’m In,” reflects the amount of intimacy it took to make this music work? Or even the genius notion of starting the film with the encore, before flipping back to the show proper, in all its 35mm glory? This was where the medium’s vocabulary met up with and enhanced the documentation of a moment, a live experience and a eulogy for the end of the road — or at least a final tip of the hat to a glorious era in North American music history.

And more than anybody, Scorsese understood how much it weighed on these guys to say goodbye to each other, even if drugs and frayed nerves and internal tensions and the era’s excesses had necessitated a throwing in of the towel. Even if you don’t know that The Last Waltz actually begins with the show’s final number, you sense the one-more-for-the-road vibe. It’s the film’s very last musical interlude, however, that reminds you that you’ve watched both an extraordinary concert movie and something more than that. As the group plucks out the instrumental “Last Waltz Suite,” the movie pulls back from Robertson’s guitar to include Danko on an upright bass; we rotate and Manuel, playing a lap-steel guitar, comes in to the frame, as does Helm on mandolin and Hudson behind a bank of organs. They’re playing together. The film is still playing it loud. The movie and the music are fused now. The camera pulls back farther and farther, until the shadows of these men loom larger, very large over the musicians themselves. Right before the credits roll, the Band have become dwarfed by the darkness around them, but they still keep playing. Until they don’t. Good night. Goodbye.

3 Movies Every Led Zeppelin Fan Should See

L ed Zeppelin. The most iconic rock icons. Yes, with news of a new documentary in the works about the famed British-born band, Becoming Led Zeppelin , it might be time to revisit some movies and concert footage from the band that has wowed fans for many decades.

But which movies and which concert films have stood the test of time? Which feature these original golden gods at the top of their game? Let’s dive into three movies every Led Zep fan should see.

[RELATED: 5 Classic Rock Songs with Unforgettable Choruses]

1. Led Zeppelin Played Here (2014)

This quirky 2014 documentary, directed by Jeff Krulik, asks a question: what if the greatest rock band ever played at a local youth center? Well, that’s what Krulik sought to answer. Did Zeppelin play at the Wheaton Youth Center in Silver Spring, Maryland? And did they do it on January 20, 1969, on their first U.S. tour, before the height of their fame? It’s a tough one to prove since there are no recordings or photos from the day. While the movie has never been released due to copyright issues, it can occasionally be seen at various film festivals. Check out the trailer below.

2. Led Zeppelin (2003)

One of the greatest concert films ever, this 2003 collection of songs, available here , showcases the band at the peak of their powers. With recordings from the Royal Albert Hall, Madison Square Garden, and more, and songs both acoustic and electrified, this is a collection that will wow and inspire. Check out the performances of “Black Dog” below.

3. The Song Remains the Same (1976)

This 1976 concert film also includes footage from MSG in 1973. While the film premiered in the ’70s, a DVD of the movie was released nearly 25 years later in 1999. In essence, the movie is fans’ very own private look inside a Led Zeppelin concert; it’s in the same vein as other great live concert films like Stop Making Sense from the Talking Heads. Check out a trailer for the film below.

Jon Bon Jovi

Bon Jovi Docuseries: Who Is Jon Bon Jovi Married To?

By Debangshu Nath

The upcoming 4-part docuseries titled Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story will premiere on Hulu on April 26, 2024. According to People Magazine, this project will shed light on the iconic band’s rise, and even their lowest points. In addition, it will also delve into the vocal issue that Jon Bon Jovi suffered in 2022.

Jon Bon Jovi has been married to Dorothea Hurley since 1989. Interestingly, they met each other when they were in high school. They studied at Sayreville War Memorial High School in New Jersey and began dating nine years before their marriage. In a 2020 interview, Jon stated that his future wife let him cheat with her help in academics. He said, “She let me cheat off her in history. I was immediately drawn to her from the minute I saw her and that never changed.”

According to IMDb, the synopsis of Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story reads, “Follows the history of Bon Jovi, featuring personal videos, photos, and music that provide a look at Jon Bon Jovi’s life and the band’s journey from New Jersey clubs to global fame.”

How many children does Jon Bon Jovi have?

Jon Bon Jovi and Dorothea Hurley have four children together . They consist of a daughter Stephanie and three sons: Jesse, Jacob, and Romeo.

Born on May 31, 1993, the eldest, Stephanie, is currently 30. Reportedly, she works as a camera operator on TV shows. Jesse, the couple’s eldest son, is currently 27 years old. In late July 2022, he apparently proposed to his long-term girlfriend.

Jon’s third child, Jake, is currently 21 years old. Furthermore, in April 2023 he announced his engagement to Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown. Finally, Romeo, the youngest among all is 19 years old. He is not very active on social media, however, but his father posted a birthday tribute in March 2021.

Debangshu Nath

Debangshu watched a couple of Scorsese, Tarantino and Coppola films in seventh grade and developed an unhealthy obsession with criminals, psychopaths and serial killers. Fueled by his passion for Death, Thrash and Black Metal, he finds solace in writing about some of the most deranged people and incidents in human history. He also thinks he is a combination of Michael Scott, Dwight Schrute, Ron Swanson and Travis Bickle.

Thank God for Cats and Prairie dogs.

Cher, Lenny Kravitz and Mariah Carey Among 2024 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Nominees

Cher, Lenny Kravitz and Mariah Carey

The list of potential inductees also includes Mary J. Blige, Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner and Sinead O'Connor.

Who's ready to rock? 

On Saturday, ABC announced the official lineup of the 2024 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction nominees with notable names like Cher , Mariah Carey , Lenny Kravitz and Ozzy Osbourne among the chosen few. Each year, Rock Hall fans can vote on which eligible artists they want to see on the ballot, which ultimately goes out to the voting body, which is made of up artists, musicians and historians. 

In order to be eligible, an artist or group must have released their first recording at least 25 years prior to the year of their nomination. 

Check out the full list of 2024 nominees below: 

  • Mary J. Blige
  • Mariah Carey
  • Dave Matthews Band
  • Eric B. & Rakim
  • Peter Frampton
  • Jane’s Addiction
  • Kool & the Gang
  • Lenny Kravitz
  • Sinead O’Connor
  • Ozzy Osbourne
  • A Tribe Called Quest

This year, 10 of the 15 nominees are included for the first time as potential inductees. That includes Mariah Carey, Cher, Foreigner, Peter Frampton, Kool & the Gang, Lenny Kravitz, Oasis, Sinéad O’Connor, Ozzy Osbourne and Sade. 

"This remarkable list of nominees reflects the diverse artists and music that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame honors and celebrates," said John Sykes, chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. "Continuing in the true spirit of Rock & Roll, these artists have created their own sounds that have impacted generations and influenced countless others that have followed in their footsteps."

The final list of 2024 inductees will be announced in April and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place in the fall in Cleveland. The 2024 ceremony will stream live on Disney+ with a special airing on ABC at a later date and available on Hulu the next day.

In 2023, the Rock Hall inducted 13 singers, songwriters and producers including Kate Bush, Sheryl Crow, Missy Elliot, George Michael, Willie Nelson and Rage Against the Machine.
