The songs, the fans, the concerts, the drugs, the groupies—these are just some of the things that make up a rockstar. They’re rule breakers, standing up against societal norms and expressing their rebellion through their music. Ah, what a life of glamour and glory they live. That’s what Nickelback said about how rockstars live, right? The hilltop houses, supercars, beds big enough to fit 10 plus one, credit cards that have no limit, and so much more. How wonderful would it be to have all these things by simply just playing a song? But hold up, before you trade your life for fortune and fame, cut your hair, and even change your name (did you sing these lines, too?), you might have to reconsider as there’s more to these traveling musicians than what Nickelback made us believe in their song.
Unbeknownst to many, there’s so much more to rock music and rockstars. Making hit songs is not an easy feat. Living almost all your days on the road is exhausting. However, our fascination with them is difficult to strip. In an attempt to understand this genre and the people involved, numerous documentaries about a rockstar’s life have been made. Through these films, we get to see them without the rose-tinted glasses and maybe get an understanding of why most of them succumb to substance abuse. Most importantly, we get to know what makes these people tick, how they create music, and what’s life for them in general. If you’re ready to step in their world, we’re ready with our list of the best rock documentaries you should watch. Rock on.
