School of Rock
Metropolis (restored version)
Tommy
Rock and Roll Your Eyes (extra points for the cheesy animation)

I loved 'Almost Famous' too.

The restored version of 'Metropolis' has a rock soundtrack, so I included it.

Soundtracts don't count... Otherwise we would have to consider thousands of movies to be rock movies. No, to me a rock movie has to be about a band or musician.

All this talk about rock movies: I can't believe that quite possibly the best rock movie ever made hasn't been mentioned....

.......cough.......DISNEY'S COUNTRY BEARS!!!!.......cough

Note to self.....I hope this comment doesn't get me kicked off of the forum..

1. Almost Famous
2. School of Rock
3. Spinal Tap

2nd note to self......Replace the number one spot with the yet to be released "Glass Hammer Shatters the World: The True Story"

God Bless:

After all these months I finally caught Rob's "Country Bears" comment! How hilarious-But I love that movie, actually one I can watch over and over with the kids. OK-go ahead-kick me off!

Spinal Tap

Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure

Blues Brothers - "we're on a mission from God"
On a crystal morning I can see the dewdrops falling
Down from a gleaming heaven, I can hear the voices calling
When you comin' home now, son, this world is not for you

Though not really a "Rock" movie, I like "Crossroads"... 8)

Though when I was 13, "KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park was my favorite".... :lol:

I watched most of "Sgt.Pepper's lonely Hearts Club Band" the other day. Pretty funny stuff-actuually worse than "Tommy", but still watchable after all these years-just for the great songs and Steve Martin as Maxwell Hammer!
