We all love music and movies. When the two are combined it can make a great combination. The two go hand in hand so well. Yes there are movies with amazing soundtracks. Then there are musicals. I'm not talking about those. I want to know what are the best movies that are themed around music. I'm talking about films that are about bands and musicians whether they are real or fake. Some of those movies gave of us some iconic scenes and some awesome songs.

A few days ago Loudwire released a list of the top grossing movies that are themed around music. You can read the top 10 movies here.
