Sound City: a GREAT documentary. I watch it about twice a year. Well worth your time, I think.
The Commitments does the best job of conveying what playing music in a band fees like
Not rock n' roll, but I think Coal Miner's Daughter is sensational. If I'm flipping channels and I find it, I drop everything to watch it. Every. Time.
Still Crazy is a good one...
I confess that's one of those 80s films that all my friends loved and yet I never got around to seeing (along with St. Elmos Fire). One day I will have to don my college sweatshirt, go in the basement and mentally travel back to the mid 80s to watch these.
Spinal Tap was the best rock and roll film ever made!
4 pages and no Heavy Metal?
And from way out from left field
Rock & Rule
I came here to say Heavy Metal too!
Crazy Heart (Jeff Bridges flick) was good, but yeah The Commitments and Eddie and the Cruisers were part of my upbringing, along with Crossroads. But no one has mentioned the greatest music movie of all time:
Emmett Otter's Jug Band Christmas
Love this movie. Great cameos from folks like John Belushi, Dan Ackroyd, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, Mick Jagger, Ron Wood, George Harrison, Paul Simon and many others.
The Rutles were the Pre-fab Four who created a musical legend that would last a lunchtime.
And the songs were fantastic with gems like "Ouch", "Tragical History Tour", "Cheese and Onions" and many more.
Created in 1978 which was six years before "Spinal Tap" which is also a classic!
National Lampoon's Electric Apricot. It tried to be Spinal Tap for jam bands. Not on a par with that classic, but still very entertaining.
Best. Rock. Movie. Ever!
Call me crazy, but I LOVED Eddie II; Eddie Lives. Probably because I was 15 when I watched it
Does Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure count?
Has anyone mentioned School of Rock?! That was a fantastic film. Jack Black was of course, killer. But Joan Cusack as the stuffy headmaster who LOVES Stevie Nicks was pretty awesome
I actually enjoyed this movie. "Marky" Mark Wahlberg did a good job on it. The "moving to Seattle" bit at the end was a bit of a slap-in-the-face to my 80's rock self but all-in-all I thought it was well made.
I really enjoyed Almost Famous. I've been known on occasion to throw my arms over my head and shout "I am a golden god"
And Kate Hudson.
I liked the movie a lot... it’s always fun to watch. My “stir” emoji is because that movie is pretty polarizing around here, it gets a rise outta TGP’ers sometimes. LOL
B&T's EA always counts, no matter what the discussion is.
The Monkees movie, Head:
