Best Rock Movies To Watch This Weekend

What are you Downloaders up to this weekend?

If you’re planning on a Netflix binge, why not switch it up with a rock-umentary, like Iron Maiden‘s ‘Flight 666’? Or how about classic 90’s flick ‘Detroit Rock City’, starring KISS themselves!

Let us know what your favourite rock movies are on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

iron maiden: flight 666

Get a close look at Maiden‘s 2008 ‘Somewhere Back In Time’ World Tour in their rockumentary ‘Iron Maiden: Flight 666’. Even if you weren’t there, you may remember this tour, as it’s the one where they travelled on their own custom plane, Ed Force One. The doc features loads of concert footage, as well as all the behind the scenes action as Maiden chat to some of their biggest fans around the globe.

detroit rock city

Hawk, Lex, Trip and Jam are four teenagers who play in a KISS tribute band. They plan to go see their idols in concert – until their disapproving parents burn their tickets. The boys are determined to see the band at all costs. It’s very silly, but loads of fun, and stars the band members themselves, as well as Sam Huntington, who went on to play werewolf Josh in ‘Being Human’.

loud krazy love

‘Loud Krazy Love’ tells the story of Korn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch’s recovery from substance abuse – and how his daughter turned his world around. Those wondering why Brian really left the band in 2005 (don’t worry, he’s back now and stronger than ever) can hear his story told in his own words. Raw, real, and deeply moving, it’s a must-see for any Korn fan.

decade of disturbed

‘Decade Of Disturbed‘ captures all the best bits of the first ten years in the metal band’s history. Originally packaged alongside their 2010 album ‘Asylum’, the documentary features never before seen, behind the scenes footage as well as exclusive interviews with the members. It’s hard to believe we’ve now had TWO decades of Disturbed!

legion of the black

Black Veil Brides‘ complex concept album ‘Wretched and Divine: The Story Of The Wild Ones’ was accompanied by its own film adaptation, ‘Legion Of The Black’. The film tells the story of a group of rebels fighting against an evil organisation called F.E.A.R, and is soundtracked by songs from the album.
