"Spinal Tap is more of a cultural icon than a film at this point."
Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) November 18, 2010
Rob Reiner's 1984 classic "This Is Spinal Tap" emerged victorious in a poll of music fans asked to select The Greatest Rock & Roll Movie Of All Time.
The poll (which excluded documentary and concert films) was conducted in October by RockandRollTribe.com, the social network for veteran rock fans.
With all the votes tallied, "Spinal Tap" coasted to an easy victory, challenged only by the Beatles' immortal 1964 film "Hard Day's Night".
"Spinal Tap is more of a cultural icon than a film at this point," says Jon Bard, co-founder of RockandRollTribe.com. "Every musician knows it by heart and it's informed the way a generation of fans view rock stars and the music industry."
Here are the final standings from the RockandRollTribe.com poll. In honor of Spinal Tap, this list goes to 11:
1, This is Spinal Tap
2. A Hard Day's Night
3. The Blues Brothers
4. Rock n Roll High School
5. Almost Famous
6. That Thing You Do
7. All You Need Is Cash (The Rutles)
8. High Fidelity
10. Yellow Submarine
11. Purple Rain
