bearded clamorer: No Easy Rider "Born to be Wild"?

I think the non-remake remake of 'The Weight' is the more iconic moment in that movie.

Also, no love for 'American Graffiti?


Used to drive past that spot every day.

I was disappointed this wasn't about rock n roll movies but rock n roll songs used in movies like #2, A Hard Day's Night. No Gimmie Shelter, Candy, not even Stop Making Sense.

And they forgot the Banana Splits theme song in "Kick Ass" where Hit Girl stabs in.

For shame ...

rickycal78: Not one mention of Airheads yet? The ridiculous requests (concert rider), taking over the radio station, wiping his ass with his record contract, playing from prison while doing their time there? Sheesh, author of TFA could have filled half the article from that movie alone.

Not to mention the cameos by White Zombie and God.

Probably not a fair choice given the movie, but this scene was arguably its most iconic.

That's a big fail of a list.  As others have said, leaves out Twist in Shout, which is probably one of the top ten music moments in movies ever.

And they went with that scene from Casino, instead of the House of the Rising Sun scene?

Mugato: No "You Could Be Mine", Guns n' Roses, Terminator 2?

The only time I remember that song appearing in the movie was blaring out of John's boom box while he and his friend were riding his dirtbike to the mall, before either of the terminators made contact. Not exactly an epic moment. Now, the music video for that song was pretty freakin' good.
