‘Rock of Ages’ Trailer Songs Brings Us Back to the ’80s
While it’s not scheduled to hit theaters until June, the trailer for the film ‘Rock of Ages‘ was just made available, and it features a pretty great soundtrack for fans of ’80s rock ‘n’ roll. Journey, Poison, Def Leppard and Bon Jovi are just a few of the bands featured in the clip below.
The soundtrack moves pretty quickly, so we’ve taken the time to breakdown the 2:30 video by song. Of course the movie is based on a musical of the same name, so these versions are a short ways away from the originals. But they still rock as hard as Broadway can:
Journey, ‘Any Way You Want It’ at :00 seconds
Def Leppard, ‘Pour Some Sugar on Me’ at :33 seconds
Warrant, ‘Heaven’ at :51
Pat Benatar, ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot’ at 1:05
David Lee Roth, ‘Just Like Paradise’ at 1:22
Poison, ‘Nothin’ But a Good Time’ at 1:34
Bon Jovi, ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ at 1:50
Joan Jett, ‘I Love Rock ‘n Roll’ at 2:15
Tom Cruise plays Stacee Jaxx in the ’80s faux-rockumentary. The film also stars Julianne Hough, Bryan Cranston, Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti, Russell Brand and many more famous Hollywood A-listers.
