Ten Rock Documentaries To Look Forward To This Year

It's no secret that Rocks Off loves musical documentaries. We buy as many as we can from Amazon while we are supposed to be working, and it's rare for us to fall asleep at night without one rolling on our TV at home. The last one we really got into was Metallica's Some Kind of Monster, which we revisited after a few years away from it because we are going through a short Metallica phase right about now.

This year has some great rock docs in store for fans, from a film chronicling the personal struggles of the late garage icon Jay Reatard, to looks into scenes that you may not know anything about, beatboxing and the Electric Daisy Carnival. We are probably most excited for Martin Scorsese's George Harrison feature, which has long been in the works.

This past weekend, Showtime premiered the Kings of Leon flick, Talahina Sky, which delves into the band's past in the Tennessee backwoods and their rise to indie heartthrobs, radio hit-makers, to the tour-canceling, beleaguered behemoth they are today. Cameron Crowe will be releasing his Pearl Jam Twenty, this fall in time for the band's 20th anniversary, with footage even super-fans haven't seen, a some new songs included.
