FROM ULTIMATE CLASSIC ROCK No matter how much we love rock ‘n’ roll, sometimes we all have to take a break from listening to it and do something different — like, say, watching a movie about, starring or otherwise inspired by our favorite rock stars. From straightforward biopics to films about fictitious bands — or even just movies that wouldn’t exist without classic songs on the soundtrack — rock’s been going to the movies for decades. So crank up the volume on your home theater and break out your lighter, because we’ve lined up a list of the Top 10 Rock ‘n’ Roll Movies.
A new preview trailer from Eagle Rock gives fans their first glimpse of a forthcoming Alice Cooper documentary, complete with archival footage, interviews, suitably weird animals and a rock opera storyline.
‘Super Duper Alice Cooper’ retraces the transformation of the man born Vincent Furnier into one of the most famous rock stars of his day, as he fronted a band described in the trailer as “half girl, half guy, half alien.” Along the way, Cooper sparked a new sub-genre called “shock rock” through a combination of gory songs, wild make up and bizarre on-stage stunts involving guillotines, snakes, baby dolls, electric chairs and gallons of fake blood.
