Best/worst representation of being in a band on film

Postby PertHJ » Thu Jan 07, 2016 8:02 pm

Cracks me up whenever theres a movie, or TV subplot, about a bands its always ridiculous shit all about getting signed, playing that one great show when theres a record label rep present etc.

Whats the best and worst you've seen?


Watched Dope recently, thought was rad (despite the bands "live" sound...)

Watched Airheads again the other day. Massive show to get signed at the end and they jam Reagan Youth. Of all the recorded songs to cover and they picked Degenerated. DFY

Bill & Ted's is the most accurate representation of being in a band ever filmed.

ive never been in a band, but i always felt 'requiem for a dream' must be a pretty good representation of what its like.

'I Like It When You Die' is the fourth album by American grindcore band Anal Cunt. The album was originally titled You're Gay, and the album cover was going to contain a mirror, but this idea was later changed

Best (obviously).


Runner up. Either The Rutles or Crucial Taunt from Wayne's World.

Worst.
Honestly too numerous to mention, it's so rare they ever get this right but at least you get some cringe induced loals out of it. I thought the Runaways movie was fucking atrocious and I've not seen the recent rash of biopics like the Germs movie or CBGB's but they both look equally terrible.

Bad News is pretty true to life as far as the shitty bands I've been in go.

Watched this last weekend and found it quite funny. Just bowl up to the radio station and record a statewide hit on the first try:

Haha I don't think they were going for realism in that film :P

Watched Jackie & Ryan the other day, Pretty standard romance movie, about a homeless country musician who falls in love with Catherine Heigl.

He's really good, plays all the old timey American hits, but has never attempted to play any of his own material for anyone else.....I call bullshit.

This is the best representation of a band in a film. You don't exist, and then suddenly you do! Also, singing is easy!
