Tales of Rock – The 9 Best Yet Most Ridiculous Rock Music Movies

Rock music is usually not incorporated in your everyday musical, and films about bands, real or fictional, have all become cult classics in some way. The rise of rock in the ’70s and ’80s led to an onslaught of movies based on the obsession that everyone had with wanting to become a rockstar which then led to some awesome, but ridiculous, films. The life of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll has been turned into a fantasy world that only those with the tightest pants, biggest hair and massive hits could live in but that hasn’t stopped many from imagining what it was like. These films were no doubt good, but somewhat ridiculous only adding to the myth of rockstar life.

9. The Runaways (2010)

This particular movie is ridiculous for a whole lot of reasons. First, many movies about huge bands or artists often don’t make a lot of money so making one about Cherie Currie and Joan Jett in their band The Runaways, which is not what many remember Jett for is questionable. Then they went and cast Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart in the lead roles, which just seemed wrong especially during sex scenes because they seemed so young. In the end, the movie wasn’t horrible but seems like it got lost on its way to rock biography and landed in the teen dramedy category.

8. This Is Spinal Tap (1984)

This Is Spinal Tap is amazing because it’s the whole purpose is to poke fun at the biggest rock bands and their music of the ’70s and ’80s. While it wasn’t a commercial success during its 1984 release, it has developed into a cult classic and has only gotten funnier as time has gone on as it was not fully appreciated at the time of its release, especially as many people took it as a literal documentary.

7. School of Rock (2003)

School of Rock landed Jack Black in the prime of his career, as well as showcasing his love of rock music. Black plays his best “loser-type” who becomes a schoolroom hero after creating an epic band out of a group of fifth-graders. This feel-good family comedy was an awesome entry in the rock music movie scene and ridiculous in a fun way as fifth-graders become rockstars.

6. The Labyrinth (1986)

In no way is this film not awesome, but still ridiculous none the less. Described as a British-American musical adventure fantasy film, this film has everything, including David Bowie as the Goblin King. The creepy film has also gained a cult following and there is just no getting over Bowie’s “Magic Dance” performance.

5. Rock Star (2001)

This Mark Wahlberg film basically plays out the dreams of every rock music fan ever as Wahlberg’s character goes from being the frontman of a tribute band for his favorite group Steel Dragon to actually becoming their frontman which is based on the story of Tim “Ripper” Owens who replaced Judas Priest singer Rob Halford when he left the band. The film not only features a young Mark Wahlberg and Jennifer Aniston but has some real-life rock credibility as Jeff Pilson, Zakk Wylde, and Jason Bonham form the Steel Dragon group in the film.

4. Detroit Rock City (1999)

Detroit Rock City tunes right into teenagers obsession with rock music and the parents who rallied against it because of its “negative influence” on their children. Four friends who are huge fans of the band KISS have to defy their parents and embark on a trip to Detroit to see the band, but not before a whole bunch of random and hilarious encounters occur.

3. Wayne’s World (1992)

Ridiculous, yes. Amazing. Wayne’s World has become one of the most quoted films of the ’90s as Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar play metalheads with their TV show. Tia Carrere really can wail, Alice Cooper makes an appearance and “Stairway To Heaven” is not allowed in the guitar store, “Denied!” in this unbelievably funny ode to rock music. And you’re lying to yourself if you don’t love Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” even more after the film’s rendition in the opening scenes.

2. Rock of Ages (2012)

Unlike some of the other films on this list, Rock of Ages is simply ridiculous. Although it does include some incredible singing, this is why rock musicals are broken up with a lot more dialogue (see The Labyrinth). Sure, it looked pretty good, but that was until Tom Cruise shows up as Stacee Jaxx looking like a Bret Michaels rip off and leaving you wondering if the film is some sort of joke. Even though it was loaded with amazing rock music, it still couldn’t save this movie from being more ridiculous than awesome.

1. Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny (2006)

The stoner’s delight rock movie of the 2000s goes to Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny. Tenacious D is a real band formed by Jack Black and Kyle Gass and much like films similar to it, it was greatly unappreciated by mass media but quickly became a cult classic. Ridiculousness knows no bounds right from the band name being formed from birthmarks on each of their butts that read “Tenacious D” when put together, to on all-out rock off with Satan himself with the result being the guys turn Satan’s horn into the “Bong of Destiny.” If you haven’t seen this movie, do it, even if you hate it you won’t be able to stop watching.

Life Before Quarantine – Part 7

During quarantine I’ve been fairly productive. I get my energy from people but I really enjoy my alone time. My daughter agrees. We’re both perfectly happy being on our own. I was looking through some photos the other day and I got some great memories of when we were all allowed to come out and play. I thought I’d share some of them with you. I’ll run this series every week until I run out of photos! If you see yourself, hit me up!

I’m very fortunate to have met you all and enjoyed the times we had together. Thank you!

Enjoy!

Bc we all deserve to feel like queens, even if we aren’t stepping out rn!”

In the accompanying video, she asks fans to “show me your best ‘Quarantina’ and create your homemade versions of these looks …” The video then flashed to some of Xtina’s most memorable outfits, including her body-baring 2002 VMAs red carpet look, the yellow and black getup for MTV’s “TRL Presents: Christina Aguilera Stripped in NYC,” her Rosie the Riveter-inspired costume from the “Candyman” video, and more.

Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Savage’ Challenge

To entertain herself while staying home, Megan Thee Stallion launched her viral “Savage” dance challenge March 16, and now, celebs from Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber to Normani and Janet Jackson are getting in on the fun.

The rising rapper has taken to sharing videos of famous pals and fans alike doing the choreography to her 2020 hit “Savage,” declaring the Biebers “HotGirl Hailey and Hotboy Justin” for their goofy take on the challenge. She also cheekily wrote, “so you really ain’t invite me over…wow” on the former Fifth Harmony member’s video. Meanwhile, Jackson took things a step further by posting her own version of the song using clips from throughout her illustrious career.

“All In” Challenge

Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin launched his “All In Challenge” on Tuesday (April 14), aiming to to raise money to provide food across the country amid the coronavirus crisis. He challenged his famous friends to take part, asking them to donate experiences and items for auction.

Philly native Meek Mill was quick to accept the challenge, and opted to donating his 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom. Justin Bieber offered to fly to the winner’s home and serenade them with “One Less Lonely Girl.” Robin Thicke, Timbaland, Alex Rodriguez, Miguel and more have also participated.

Tim McGraw’s ‘Deep Cuts’ Challenge

Tim McGraw kicked off his #DeepCutsChallenge with an acoustic cover of 1987 single “Take the Long Way Home” on March 20, and challenged his country pals to perform their favorite deep cut that didn’t get enough love on country radio. Soon enough, Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Thomas Rhett, Luke Combs and more had delivered everything from Steve Wariner’s “What I Didn’t Do” to Hank Williams Jr.’s “The Blue Man.”

Country Artists’ ‘Demo Challenge’

Similarly, a number of country singers have been sharing original demos to their songs. Kelsea Ballerini uploaded her “Needy” demo, off her recent self-titled album, and the clip showcases the song’s sparkling harmonies. She went on to tag Jimmy Robbins, Ryan Tedder, Julia Michaels, Avenue Beat and Russell Dickerson. Luke Combs, Morgan Wallen, Chris Lane and Jake Owen are among the others who took part in the challenge.

‘Needy’ was written by @juliamichaels along side some incredible writers. It is featured on the recently released album ‘Kelsea’ by @KelseaBallerini 🤍

Justin Bieber Nails the ‘Push-Up Challenge’

It may feel like everyone on your feed is doing the push-up challenge, but the only “See 10, Do 10” you really need to watch is Bieber’s.

Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg Do the ‘Kush Up’ Challenge

Inspired by the aforementioned push-up challenge taking over Instagram, Gillie Da Kid invented the #KushUpChallenge, involving doing 10 pulls of weed without letting any smoke out in between. Gillie then challenged Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg and G-Herbo to the task and a viral smoke session was born.

Diplo Does the ‘Toilet Paper’ Challenge

Not sure what to do with all the toilet paper you’ve hoarded? Diplo’s got you covered with the #ToiletPaperChallenge. Started by professional soccer stars, the challenge involves kicking a roll of toilet paper around like a soccer ball. It eventually made its way to the DJ’s Instagram page, and he got a little bit of help from some hilarious CGI TP. Diplo nominated Joe Jonas and DJ Snake, though it appears both stars have yet to keep the toilet paper rolling …

Vietnam’s ‘Ghen Cô Vy’ Challenge

Vietnam’s hand-washing challenge, set to a remix of V-pop singers Erik and Men’s hit “Ghen,” went viral earlier in March thanks to its ultra-catchy melody and coronavirus-specific lyrics. Now, the poppy track has inspired a #GhenCoVyChallenge on TikTok, with users doing handsy choreography to spread the message about the importance of combating the pandemic by washing your hands for 20 seconds.

Game rules: You perform the dance of the song Ghen Co Vy with 6 hand washing movements as recommended by the World Health Organization and the Ministry of Health, based on the music song COVID-19 prevention – Jealousy, cooperation between Institute of Occupational and Environmental Health, musician Khac Hung, singer Min and singer Erik.

J. Lo and A-Rod Disagree During Eyes-Closed ‘Couples Challenge’

Sequestered together during their quarantine, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez decided to test their knowledge with a new #CouplesChallenge. Closing their eyes, the longtime loves answered a series of questions about their relationship, from “Who initiated the first kiss?” to “Who’s the funny one?” And while they disagreed on more than one answer, the famous couple sure looked adorable while deciding who’s grumpier in the morning, who’s the messy one and who’s the biggest baby when sick.

Tales of Rock – Update: Pamela Des Barres’ Memoirs Also Contradicted Lori Maddox’s Story

Since writing and publishing my prior post fact checking Lori Mattix’s (Maddox’s) claim that she lost her virginity to David Bowie the night before his first March 1973 Long Beach show at the age of 15, another significant issue has come to my attention.

Pamela Des Barres’s celebrated memoirs, I’m with the Band, also contradict Ms. Mattix’s account. By late 1972, Ms. Des Barres, aged 24 at the time, had been in a long-standing relationship with Jimmy Page. She ended her relationship with him, however, before moving in with Frank and Gail Zappa (for whom she’d previously worked as a nanny) in February 1973, precisely because of Page’s ongoing relationship with Mattix:

I realized how desperate I was for attention and affection I was when good old Led Zep came to town and I flopped around with Jimmy again. The first night was wonderful, even though he had started to ingest many harmful substances, but the second night he left me stranded in front of the Whiskey like a floundering, faded Jezebel while he sleazed off with a thirteen-year-old nymphet called Lori Lightning [Mattix’s modeling pseudonym]. I sat around all night with the rest of the group, getting pissed, and they all agreed I was too good for that sort of treatment. Oh, well.

Importantly, this occurred before her move into the Zappa’s home in February 1973, and therefore well before David Bowie’s March 1973 Long Beach concerts. Between Ms. Mattix’s own accounts and Ms. Des Barres’s memoirs, it increasingly seems that the fact that the underage Ms. Mattix was already in a relationship with Jimmy Page well before she claims to have lost her virginity to David Bowie cannot be seriously disputed.

Tales of Rock: Iconic Jefferson Airplane and Starship singer Grace Slick celebrates her 80th birthday today

Feed this into your head: Grace Slick celebrates her 80th birthday today.

As a member of Jefferson Airplane , the powerhouse singer established herself as one of the iconic voices of the Woodstock era, then found continued success with the more mainstream-rock-oriented spinoff groups Jefferson Starship and Starship .

Prior to joining Jefferson Airplane, Slick sang with another Bay Area band, The Great Society . She replaced the Airplane’s original female vocalist Signe Anderson in late 1966 in time to record the group’s breakthrough second album, 1967’s Surrealistic Pillow . Slick brought two Great Society songs with her — “Somebody to Love,” written by the band’s lead guitarist and Grace’s then-brother-in-law, Darby Slick , and the self-penned “White Rabbit.”

The songs peaked at #5 and #8, respectively, on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Airplane’s biggest hits. The band emerged as one of the leading psychedelic acts in the U.S. and performed at the historic 1967 Monterey Pop and 1969 Woodstock festivals. In 1971, Slick and band mate Paul Kantner had a daughter, China Kantner .

After Airplane’s 1972 breakup, Grace and Paul formed Jefferson Starship. Jefferson Airplane co-founder Marty Balin soon joined the group, scoring hits such as “Miracles,” Count on Me,” “With Your Love” and “Runaway.”

Slick and Balin left the band in 1978, but Grace rejoined in 1981. After Kantner quit Jefferson Starship in 1984, the group changed its name to Starship and proceeded to score three #1 hits — “We Built This City,” “Sara” and “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now.”

Grace took part in a Jefferson Airplane reunion album and tour in 1989 but retired from music after the trek ended. Since then, she’s focused on painting.

Slick was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Jefferson Airplane in 1996.

Sara Martins starred in Death in Paradise as DS Camille Bordey.

Martins played the role of DS Camille Bordey from 2011 until 2015.She first appeared in episode one of Death in Paradise in 2011 and was last seen in season four, episode four.

As time went on, Poole and Martins got closer and even verged on having a romantic relationship.

Sadly, Poole was killed off in season three and DI Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall) replaced him.

Goodman had expressed romantic feelings for Martins’ character but nothing happened between them until Camille announced the was moving to a new job in Paris.

As she left the island of Saint Marie, she kissed Goodman goodbye.

Camilla was written out of the show by securing a new undercover job in Paris.

Speaking about the decision to leave Death in Paradise, Martins told What’s On TV?: “I’ve loved everything about the show but the only way to grow in life is to take risks, even if it means losing something you love or leaving a place that’s comfortable.

“You should always go forward and take new challenges.“

However, Martins did not rule out returning to Death in Paradise.

She said: “We wanted to make the best exit, and they didn’t want to kill me off, there was no reason to. And who knows? There’s always the possibility I can come back.
