List: Best Rock N Roll Movies

audioeclectica_logo1
I’ve put this list together many times and changed the parameters so much to fit in different films, that it sort of got out of hand. So now, I’ve simplified it to make it easier to define what is a great “rock n roll” movie. No it doesn’t’ have to be all music based, though that would be super simple, instead I’ve made this list based upon movies that used rock music in such a way that it helped to make the movie that much better. I’m not including music documentaries in this or concert films (for example: The Who’s Tommy or The Band’s The Last Waltz).  Biopic movies do count and should be included. As always, your participation in adding to this list is more than welcome.

Let’s Begin!!
