When the music gods created a timeless sound known as rock ‘n’ roll, it quickly manifested in countless forms throughout pop culture, including on the silver screen, and soon became a screaming good time for all who wished to pursue it, regardless of race or gender or sexual orientation. Retro Rocks! includes docs and biopics, concert films and musicals, and movies with generation-defining soundtracks. These films do their best to capture the spirit, content, and attitude of what rock ‘n’ roll movies should be.
