Greatest Rock and Roll Movies of All Time

Greatest rock and roll movies, whether concert, documentary, or movie heavily laced with music.

The Top TenXW

1Almost Famous

This movie felt real to me visually and musically. The problems that bands faced from the 70's or any other era, were captured perfectly here. Outstanding movie from Cameron Crowe.

at a par with school of rock, different styles but they're both great movies about the true spirit of rock and roll

This movie is just the BOMB, really just fantastic and with its amazing music, this movie is rock at its absolutely finest.

Mm penny lane? yes please

17The Last Waltz

I've worn out two DVD's watching this.


The story is hard to follow. Roger Daltrey is not very much of an actor. But, you gotta love this movie.
