I've seen 'The Blues Brothers' and 'The Blues Brothers

Recommended Posts

I've seen 'The Blues Brothers' and 'The Blues Brothers 2000' recently, and I simply love them!

So I'm wondering if there are more great movies with a lot of music (preferably Blues, rock'n roll, rock,...) in it. :)

^Second that one

Country wise-Walk the Line and Coal Miner's Daughter

I wouldn't be me if I didn't recommend A Hard Day's Night or Almost Famous

Backbeat-about Stu Sutcliffe era Beatles

I'll have to think of more

"The Blues Brothers" is far superior to the "2000" sequel, imho :P

Yes, I think so too

but '2000' has B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Jimmy Vaughan,... on the same stage!

Thanks for all the hints!

Rock & Roll Highschool

Detroit Rock City

Boogie Nights

Dazed & Confused

The Virgin Suicides

Across The Universe

Moulin Rouge

and Fin has already said Quadrophenia, of course :D

These are my favourite kind of movie, ones with lots of music in them or just straight out musicals :D

How about Wayne's World and Wayne's World 2. It's not about a band, but it has a lot of rock references. Like the Blues Brothers, it also came from a Saturday Night Live skit.

My personal favorite rock movie, though is "Help!". It's basically several really good music videos all tied around a silly fun plot.

On a related note, most people don't know there a book of the first Blues Brothers movie. There was a lot of stuff in it that wasn't shown in movie, like why Jake went to prison and where they stayed after the woman blew up their apartment. I actually did a high-school book report on it once.
