10 Rock Documentaries Every Music Fan Should See ASAP
Some people cry watching romantic comedies. I get choked up watching rock documentaries. The fact that I am deeply moved by music certainly doesn't make me unique, nor does my tendency to get obsessed with certain bands and albums. But I get pretty deep into the music I love; I want to know the ins and outs of how its made despite — or perhaps because of — my personal lack of musical ability.
As a fan of documentaries in general, I've spent many, many hours watching music documentaries. While this is not a comprehensive list of all the great music docs in existence, these 10 movies are, in my opinion, some of the best in terms of filmmaking, featured artists, and stories. If you're a big fan of rock music in particular, consider these required viewing.
