The list author says: "Making a movie about rock and roll can be a hit or miss situation. I feel that a movie about rock and roll should have jubilation and trigger the viewer to pursue the music even after the film is over. I have tried to exclude pure "concert" movies from this list."
"Not about rock but "Wyld Stallion" is an important element. When your'e about to be tortured in Middle Ages England, in an "iron maiden" yet the characters conjure up an image of the British Metal band, then you know this IS a rock and roll movie"
