Are there any music movies like this?

Asked by Steve_A (5120points) February 17th, 2010

I just got done watching “It might get loud” with Jack White, Jimmy Page and The Edge.

Awesome movie I really enjoyed it, anyone know of other movies similar to it?

I just have to add I have that I have a new found respect for Jack White he is really all about his music and what he wants out of it.

He lives by a motto I wish I had the balls and guts to do.

You have to see “Anvil!: The Story of Anvil.”

The movie was a little late in the game for T-D and a little watered down but still respectable.

This is the stuff

The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle [The Sex Pistols]
The Beatles Anthology
Hype! [90’s grunge]
No Direction Home [Bob Dylan]
End of the Century [The Ramones]
The Decline of Western Civilization [80’s punk]

I have a collection… but those are my favorites.

My very favorite music films are Stop Making Sense (my favorite), The Last Waltz and Gimme Shelter, but those are really from a generation ago, at least from my generation, so I also googled and found this The Definitive All-Time Top 10 Rock ‘n’ Roll Documentaries List where between their top ten list and the user comments you might be able to find several films that you might like.

Zappa’s 200 Motels is THE music movie of all time!

Sorry @lucillelucillelucille this one trumps even Spinal Tap another of my favs.

@Yetanotheruser -Sorry.That doesn’t make you any less right about your recommendation :)
@Cruiser -You detect nothing,Sherlock.LOL!

@lucillelucillelucille Further examination of the evidence shows with out a doubt your jealousy is beyond obvious! Sit down and listen the Acts 1, 2 and 3 of Joe’s Garage to help you overcome this futile effort of denial.
