This Is Spinal Tap album

This week, This Is Spinal Tap, the soundtrack to the film with music by Spinal Tap, is on sale in MP3 format for only $2.99. The CD is currently $11.99. Both contain 2 bonus tracks.

If you’ve seen the movie (it’s one of my favorites of all time), then you know how awesome the songs are, even if they are done by a mock heavy metal band formed by SNL comedians. Songs like “Heavy Duty,” “Hell Hole,” and “Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight,” are pure metal awesomeness. Just listening to tunes like “Stonehenge,” “Sex Farm,” and “Big Bottom” will bring a smile on your face, remembering the scenes from the movie.

I’ve had this soundtrack on cassette since it came out and the songs are still in heavy rotation on my iPod. I can’t say enough of how friggin’ amazing this album is, so for $3, please, get this album now!!!

Browse all 100 albums on sale this month for only $5 each, as well as several albums on sale this week for only $2.99.

IMDb’s ‘This Is Spinal Tap’ Rating Goes To 11

This Is Spinal Tap

Our friends over at /Film noticed something interesting about IMDb’s rating for the film This Is Spinal Tap: It goes to 11.

If you look at the entry on IMBb you’ll see that the maximum rating listed for the film is 11, though you really can only rank it between 1-10. Still, it looks damn cool, and that was quite clever.

In the 1984 mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap, the heavy metal group Spinal Tap has amplifiers that go up to 11, because on a standard amp if you’re all the way up on 10 and you want to go louder, where can you go from there? Nowhere. Hence, these amps go to 11.

Watch the clip here below from the film where guitarist Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest) is explaining his need for volume to documentary filmmaker Marty DiBergi (director Rob Reiner).

The Ultimate Geek Movies Of All TimeThis week, the podcast Social Blend, which I co-host with Jay Fowler aka SilentJay74, was invaded by the Geeks of Doom! Empress Eve and Tched were considerate enough to join us in a discussion focusing on what we believe to be The Ultimate Geek Movies of All Time.

Quite frequently, you will find some blogs try to come up with some attempt at a “Top 10” list of best movies within any given subject area, but for this special edition of Social Blend, we decided to simply discuss, debate, and squabble about (and in some cases, ridicule) the movies we collectively believe should be on every geek’s DVD shelf.

Aside from the obvious selections from the dominions of Star Wars and Star Trek, we had a look at all kinds of movies from a wide range of genres and categories — from movies based on comics, to science fiction, to music-based films, to horror and beyond.

11 Greatest Fictional Rock Bands In Film

Many rock bands have appeared on the big screen: KISS rocked in Detroit Rock City and even saved the day in the awesome KISS Meets The Phantom Of The Park. Aerosmith actually showed up to Waynestock in Wayne’s World 2 and Tenacious D put aside their pizzas, successfully completed a cock push-up, and power-slided into cinemas in Pick of Destiny. More bands still have been given the rock biopic treatment, like The Doors, Def Leppard, and the Rolling Stones, while others are featured in rockumentaries, like Metallica embarrassing themselves in Some Kind Of Monster, the Sex Pistols swearing their way through The Filth and the Fury, and Anvil in one of the most heartfelt, completing documentaries of all time, Anvil: The Story of Anvil.

But their plenty of big rock stars who make it onto the big screen who aren’t real rock stars at all. Because the world can never get enough of the excesses and legend of rock bands, there are many that have been created just for the cinema. Some are immediately forgetful, like…um…you know, the band in that thing. There are, thankfully, many more fictional rock bands in film that are unforgettable, who look and sound believable, and, sometimes, their influence is even felt in pop culture.

This weekend sees the release Bandslam, a music comedy about the ultimate battle of the bands. Will any of the fictional bands in Bandslam leave a mark on pop culture? We’ll see, but for now, we’re going all the way to 11 with this list of some of the best fictional rock bands ever seen — and heard — in the film.

7 Unapologetic Rock Songs About Jailbait

RunawaysIt was announced earlier this month that Twilight star Kristen Stewart would be starring as Joan Jett in The Runaways movie, which focuses on Jett’s teenage years as guitarist for the all-girl rock band The Runaways. While the band toured the world, the girls — all underage — were considered “jailbait,” a stigma which interfered with their attempts for mainstream success back in the 1970s.

But there is, of course, a double standard: The 1970s and 80s saw plenty of rock songs about the lust for jailbait, seemingly making it acceptable to crone about the desire for underage teens.

Here are 7 rock songs with unapologetic lyrics that try to justify getting it on with jailbait, complete with audio.
