The compilation of “Stranglehold” (Ted Nugent), “Wild Side” (Motley Crue), “Lick It Up” (KISS), and “Livin’ On A Prayer” (Bon Jovi) is worth the $5 price. Throw in a whole bunch of songs by the Rock Star‘s band in question, Steel Dragon, which includes actual guitars by Zakk Wylde and drums by Jason Bonham. Don’t worry, Mark Wahlberg’s singing voice is performed by the awesome Miljenko Matijevic of Steelheart, as well as Yngwie Malmsteen vocalist Jeff Scott Soto.
The story of Chris “˜Izzy’ Cole’s rise from tribute band gigs to rock stardom is loosely based on the life of Tim “˜Ripper’ Owens. Cole fronts Blood Pollution, a tribute band of 80s hard rock crew Steel Dragon, and gets the chance to replace the lead singer in the band he imitates. Similarly, Owens replaced Rob Halford in Judas Priest after performing with Priest tribute band British Steel.
Rock Star is a pretty good movie, but the Rock Star Soundtrack is better. If you’d like to purchase a physical copy of the album, the CD is only $9.99.
