#1 Wayne's World
It’s a song that you turn up EVERY time you hear it.
It’s a song that you can’t help but headbang along with.
It’s one of the most recognizable rock ‘n’ roll movie scenes.
Starring Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament and Matt Dillon as ‘Citizen Dick’, a group of young adults (almost all living in the same little apartment complex) search for love & success in Seattle when grunge was just beginning. We can probably agree the soundtrack is better than the movie itself…featuring The Screaming Trees , Soundgarden, Mudhoney and Pearl Jam.
#3 Dazed and Confused
A group of Texas teenagers (including Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey) in 1976…
#4 Pulp Fiction
Uma Thurman and John Travolta in the Tarantino scene you’ll never forget, featuring a Neil Diamond cover by Urge Overkill:
#5 School of Rock
What a brilliant way to win a battle of the bands competition…hijack a teaching gig at a fancy prep school and teach the kids how to ROCK. The soundtrack is rich in rock ‘n’ roll history featuring bands like Deep Purple, The Velvet Underground, T-Rex, The Clash, Cream, Metallica, and let’s not forget the band that inspires the battle of the bands performance, AC/DC.
#6 Almost Famous
It’s 1973. A high school kid gets to write a story for Rolling Stone Magazine, the chance of a lifetime, right? The assignment…15 year old William must go on tour with the band Stillwater.
Remember this scene the next time you find yourself in a tense situation…sometimes a little sing-a-long will bring everyone’s spirits up.
#7 Rock 'n' Roll High School
You had me at The Ramones are in the movie…
Addicted to heroin, Ewan McGregor’s character tries to get sober…several times.
#9 Beavis and Butthead Do America
A packed soundtrack featuring White Zombie, Rancid, Ozzy, The Butthole Surfers, No Doubt, AC/DC and Red Hot Chili Peppers…Here’s the song that plays when our favourite American idiots arrive in Las Vegas…on a quest to find a stolen television and maybe get laid along the way…the Chili Peppers even included Beavis & Butthead in the music video.
