30 Music Movies You Need to See Right Now

While racing my brain today for a topic to blog about, I found my mind wandering to the music-centered movies that I wanted to watch this weekend. After some listing in my head, that seemed like a cool topic in and of itself, since I find that so many of my favorite music movies go under the radar. As it’s been a while since I last posted a list at all, I figured that today seemed an ideal time to put up a new one. So here are some of the best music movies in my opinion — docu-/rockumentaries, mockumentaries, and just plain good flicks.
