Stevie Nicks has made her music career with solo hits and a popular long-term stint on vocals for Fleetwood Mac.

The legendary classic rock band hit its peak with their album Rumours in 1977 soon after Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joined.

Nicks entered the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 as a member of Fleetwood Mac, but her most prominent trip to Cleveland came in 2019. With an induction as a solo artist, she became the first woman inducted to the Hall twice. Tina Turner has since joined her.

The popularity of Stevie Nicks has carried on into the modern era with some help from Hollywood. Nicks songs and Fleetwood Mac songs have been featured in memorable movie scenes for decades dating all the way back to Fast Times at Ridgemont High in 1982.

  • Forrest Gump: "Go Your Own Way"

    Who could forget Forrest Gump running back and forth across the United States multiple times in the 1994 classic? The movie featured “Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac during the scene when the group of runners tags along with Forrest.

    It’s tough to go more than a few minutes in Forrest Gump without hearing a legendary classic rock song. “Fortunate Son,” “For What It’s Worth,” “Free Bird,” and “Mrs. Robinson” (among many more) are all featured.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy (Vol. 2): "The Chain"

    The Guardians of the Galaxy series brought back some old-time hits for the younger generation thanks to the upbeat taste of Chris Pratt’s character Peter.

    Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2, released in 2017, featured “The Chain,” one of Fleetwood Mac’s biggest hits.

  • Jersey Girl: "Landslide"

    “Landslide” has unsurprisingly been used repeatedly in tv shows and movies because of its captivating yet melancholy tone that leaves an impression on its listeners.

    Scenes from Jersey Girl were meant to move the audience emotionally without a romantic element, and “Landslide” was an excellent way to do it.

  • School of Rock: "The Edge of Seventeen"

    Jack Black’s antics were on full display in his role as a substitute teacher in School of Rock.

    His idea to sweet talk the principal into bending school rules with the help of Stevie Nicks’ biggest solo hit “The Edge of Seventeen” was one of the movie’s many great music scenes.
