Summer is just around the corner, and Rocketman has kick-started the heatwave with a fearless, unique representation of the legendary Sir Elton John. The rock ‘n roll fantasy biopic is chasing Oscar dreams with Taron Egerton’s passionate performance as the Grammy Legend Award-winning singer, hoping to follow-up Bohemian Rhapsody‘s box office success last year.

Rocketman and Bohemian Rhapsody are re-introducing fans to epic rock biopics and enlightening a younger generation to some of the best music produced. Each movie has broken down cinematic and social barriers, but their predecessors deserve credit for paving the way for the genre. There are decades worth of excellent features that have allowed fans to dive deeper into the history of their favorite musicians and embrace the universal experience of music along with the ups and downs of the people who create magic for the rest of us. As Rocketman moves full speed ahead following its strong opening, check out Mandatory’s best rock ‘n roll biopic movies of the past.
