    Yes, Wildeman! Crossroads was the first one that came to my mind. And I still play that duel where the forces of good and evil battle it out on stage - lick for lick, Tele vs Ibanez, and the stakes are as high as they get. A memorable movie for me.

    I've already submitted a proposal to make the State Board of Education make Rumble required viewing for K-12. Yearly. Maybe bi-annual even.

    Hey, does anyone ever smack their slow smartphone and yell "C'MON ZIGGY!"?

    Band Aid
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5816374/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_47
    A struggling married couple turn their arguments into music and start a band to air out their differences. This demonstrates the therapeutic power of music, in a way. Is the Aid of their Band going to be a cure for their relationship in crisis or just a temporary "Band-Aid"(TM) fix?

    Funny appearance by Fred Armisen as their quirky neighbor who helps out on the drums. Maybe he was just playing himself?

    How could I have forgotten The Commitments? Great film!
    Then, there's "The Boys and Girl From County Clair" all about Irish music.
    In the same vein, "Brassed Off!"
