The Top Ten

1 This Is Spinal Tap

C'mon guys, vote for this, make a real rock movie #1. LETS CRANK THIS UP TO ELEVEN! AMAZING MOVIE ONE OF THE BEST EVER!

This is the greatest movie of all time. "My amps go all the way up to 11." Haha! Best line ever! Nigel is the best!

I just finished watching this movie for the first time a few minutes ago. I loved it! I love Nigel

I've seen most on this list and not sure how A.Fam is so high. The memorable movies are this, hard day's night and the wall.

2 Almost 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

17 Jesus Christ Superstar
18 Air Heads

This entire movie express the dedication to rock & roll these three musicians have. It should be much, much higher. I wish there was a sequel. - maarilynmaanson

19 Tommy

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

two words THE WHO thats all I need to say should be higher - heresjohnny

20 The Buddy Holly Story

my opinion about the buddy holly story is that it was the greatest movie ever it told a story about his life and his death. It also told about richie valens, the big bopper and eddie cochran the life and the death of the famous singers of the 1950's to me I vote about the movie the number 1 movie ever
