Todd Haynes's glam-rock drama Velvet Goldmine, the wild and wiggy Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and the Janis Joplin-esque burnout tragedy The Rose all made Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 12 best rock movies on DVD. All three films feature leading characters who are gay or bisexual, and Hedwig stars writer-director John Cameron Mitchell as a rock singer whose gender-reassignment surgery was botched. Other films with gay characters to make the list include Almost Famous and 8 Mile.

Here is Rolling Stone's list of the top 12 rock movies on DVD:

1. This Is Spinal Tap (1984)
2. A Hard Day's Night (1964)
3. Sid and Nancy (1986)
4. High Fidelity (2000)
5. Almost Famous--Untitled: The Bootleg Cut (2000)
6. Velvet Goldmine (1998)
