So what your nomination? I can be a documentary, concert film, fictional film. There are so many good ones I just thought I'd try to mine some I haven't seen. I guess I better start by throwing some out.

"The Kids are Alright" I loved this to death when it came out and it cemented by devotion as a fan of The Who. Some of the Ringo/Keith Moon stuff is annoying and out of place, but the vintage footage is pure magic.

"Grace of My Heart" On a completely different note, this quiet movie starring Illeana Douglas captured my heart for some reason. It starts with the Tin Pan Alley writers at the Brill building and the girl group and follows rock up the Matt Dillon as a wigged out Brian Wilson. A nice little film about rock.

Next....?

I don't really know any, but I did like that Bill and Ted where they became wild stallions, and sang "god gave roll and roll to you" by kiss . . .

The Rocky Horror Picture Show. An early 20-something Susan Sarandon writhing around in her skivvies singing "Toucha-toucha-touch me...I wanna be dirty" gets me every time.

The greatest rock movie of all time is "The Girl Can't Help It", with "Purple Rain" a close second.

Awesome movie!

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned "The Song Remains The Same". It's a concert movie but it's a classic.
