Can you match rock stars to the movies they starred in?

Which groups appeared in Hold On, Head, Flame and more?

 

You know you've made it as a rock band when an entire movie is based around your music. You're even cooler when you get to star in the movie yourself. (Although, admittedly, sometimes the acting is better left to the professionals.)

We've gathered a dozen of our favorite rock movies from the Fifties through the Eighties. We'll even show you a fragment of the movie poster.

Can you match these movies to the correct musicians?

12/12 and Jack Nicholson didn't write The Monkees HEAD by himself, Bob Rafelson did and Nicholson contributed.

Slade made a comback in the early 80s with "Run Runaway."
