We all like the movies. Personally i love Tarantino and Scorsese movies but i’m down with comedies as well. For example i’ve seen all Monty Python movies, sketches, e.t.c so many times that i almost remember most of the lines on each movie. Music movies or movies about your favorite bands and artists is something else though. It’s when you get to know stuff about your favorite band that you didn’t know before. In some cases it’s when artists decide to share some of the magic.
What i’m going to do today is give you my ten favorite music films. Some of them you may have already seen, some of them not. Anyways, here it goes. Movies go in no significant order.
Until the light takes us (2008)
A documentary about the norwegian, black metal scene and things that happened in Norway back in the early 90’s. Perhaps the best film you can find about black metal. Aaron Aites rest in peace.
24 Hour party people (2002)
1976, June the fourth. Sex Pistols play Manchester for the very first time. Here’s a film about punk rock, how bands evolved through time and how they influenced other bands.
Walk the line (2005)
Here’s a film about the great Johnny Cash. Starring Joaquin Pheonix who by the way made an amazing performance.
The man, the myth, the legend: Ian Lemmy Kilmister
The Song remains the same (1976)
One of my favorite films of all time. A documentary of a Led Zeppelin tour mixed with live music, a bizarre fantasy, and interviews with those involved with the band.
Anvil: The Story of Anvil (2008)
Sometimes things don’t go the way you planned them. Nevertheless you must always follow your dreams.
Grindcore – 85 Minutes of brutal heavy metal (2003)
A documentary about grindcore, death metal and other exciting stuff. Check it out.
This is Spinal Tap (1984)
Hands down, this is one great movie.
Detroit Rock City
You can’t go wrong with Kiss.
South Park: Bigger, longer & uncut (1999)
Well, this is more of a musical but still a great movie.
