The music of the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction likely provided some of the soundtracks to your life, but it also provided the soundtrack to some great films, too.
In honor of the Rock Hall induction ceremony this Saturday (April 14), here are four killer soundtracks you should check out that feature the 2018 class. (The films aren’t half bad, either.)
Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)
Alright…I’m sure most of you will get upset that The Cars are not being represented by Fast Times At Ridgemont High, but “Moving in Stereo” (which will forever be associated with ’80s hottie Phoebe Cates) was not actually featured on the film’s released soundtrack. Instead, we implore you to check out the great soundtrack to Everybody Wants Some!!, the 2016 Richard Linklater film that is essentially the ’80s version of Dazed and Confused.
Pirate Radio (2012)
The Moody Blues appear alongside fellow British icons The Kinks, Jeff Beck and The Rolling Stones in this epic 2 disc soundtrack to easily one of the best rock and roll films released in the past two decades.
Charlie’s Angels – Full Throttle (2003)
Say what you want about this reboot sequel, but its soundtrack is awesome! Between Bon Jovi, Loverboy, David Bowie AND Electric Six, there’s something here for everyone.
200 Cigarettes (1999)
Everyone and their mother is in this movie, and as for this soundtrack, you have Dire Straits, Blondie, Roxy Music, The Go-Go’s and the Ramones! The fact that The Cars are also included is an added Rock Hall bonus!
