We’re in the heart of winter, the perfect reason to nestle into the couch, bury yourself in blankets and turn on a movie. And what better topic than rock and roll, especially when it’s done low, high camp or a little of both?

Here are our Top 10 Rock Movies (For People Who Are Easily Entertained), enough ammunition to consider a double feature.

10. Rock Star (2001)

In a plot borrowed from Ripper Owens’ temporary replacement of Rob Halford in [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Judas Priest[/lastfm], copier repairman Mark Wahlberg gets to sing with his idols Steel Dragon. The soundtrack mixes custom-written songs with covers played by real musicians and lip-synched by the singers. Though not especially deep, it provides some amusement and the chance to dig Jennifer Anniston as the long-suffering girlfriend.
