Top 6: Rock and Roll Movies

Usually when we think of musicals, we think of classic Broadway or MGM spectacles, but starting on the fringes of filmmaking and emerging into the forefront are rock and roll musicals, which is some ways make up a genre all its own. It's not just the music that's different, it's a whole different cultural mentality and value system that comes with it. When compiling our lists for Episode 38's Top 6 Rock and Roll Movies segment, we discovered that there actually aren't that many good ones, but maybe we're not the people to ask about that anyway. Still, we were able to come up with six favorites apiece, and here they are. Chime in with yours!

As always, we recommend listening to the episode before reading further.
