Top Five Rock Tracks On Movie Soundtracks

Our picks for most iconic rock songs on movie soundtracks– we break down some of the most memorable marriages of film and music!

Sometimes the song was written for the movie, other times the scene written around the song, but regardless the best movie soundtracks tie song and film scene inextricably together in your head. Whether you've just seen the movie or haven't watched it in years, hearing the song immediately brings the movie vividly to mind. Below, five truly iconic rock songs on movie soundtracks:

‘School’s Out’ in Dazed and Confused

Named after the Led Zeppelin song, Dazed and Confused features an incredibly rich soundtrack, with ZZ Top, Kiss, Black Sabbath and others on it. If there’s one song that defines the movie, though, it’s the Alice Cooper song ‘School’s Out’. Released in 1993, the film centers around the last day of school for 1970s high school students in the American south. It kicks in as the students empty their school lockers, throwing armloads of paper into the air, and the song perfectly captures that dizzy, euphoric, end-of-term feeling. “School’s out for summer…school’s out forever!”
