Which rock docs you diggin’?


I liked & would recommend these rock docs, which other ones should I check out?

Rock Docs!

  • Lemmy: 49% Motherf**ker, 51% Son Of A Bitch – This has to be THE rock doc.ย  It ought to be the standard to which all others are held.
  • Mad Tiger – I love Peelander-Z.ย  This is a story about art, music, choosing your path, and ultimately about the bond of friendship beyond being band mates.
  • Anvil! The Story of Anvil – This is wild.ย  You feel for these guys so much.ย  At least I do.
  • Sound City – What a cross-section of rock n’ roll history.ย  Dave Grohl is cool for putting this together.
  • Searching for Sugar Man – This is a crazy story about how music can transcend time and borders, and save the artists like it saves the listener.
  • It Might Get Loud – I wouldn’t list any of these guys in my favorites as far as guitarists go… but this was a damn good movie.ย  I mean, Jimmy Page is Jimmy Page.ย  How can you not respect his body of work?
  • Beware of Mr. Baker – Fabulous just because Ginger is a wild man.ย  Maybe even a wild animal in a man’s body.
  • Flogging Molly: Whiskey on a Sunday – Mostly about Dave if I remember right.ย  I’m a fan of the music, so it was nice to have a peek inside that world.
  • The Punk Syndrome – Finland has some cool-ass social programs, one that gave us Pertti Kurikan Nimipรคivรคt.ย  Follow a punk rock band formed by cats with Autism and Down Syndrome and realize that their struggles are a whole lot like yours.
  • FilmageALL gets such a bad rap.ย  Ha ha.ย  I really enjoyed this story.
  • Mission to Lars – Less about being in the band, more about fandom & brotherly love.

What other ones do you like?ย  I am sure I have missed a few.ย  I liked that one Rush doc, I need to catch all of it.ย  I caught the end on VH1 way back.ย  Bonus points if these docs are “free” on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
