Overview

The Rocker follows a washed-up drummer named Fish (played by The Office's Rainn Wilson) who got screwed and dumped by his old heavy metal band, Vesuvius, who have since gone on to fame and glory. Fish joins his nephew's teen-pop garage band and hijinks ensue. For the most part, the film's soundtrack is a solo album for precocious upstate New York-based singer/songwriter Teddy Geiger, whose melodic midtempo jams place him firmly in the Daniel Powter/post American Idol/adult alternative rock scene. (It should be noted that Geiger plays the lead singer for the fictional band ADD, who employ Fish.) But the best tracks are the two from Vesuvius, who sound like an unholy blend of Mott the Hoople, AC/DC, and Meat Loaf -- the opening scream on "Pompeii Nights" is pretty great.

It's been a long time since I've felt the need to rush to Target to get a soundtrack after seeing a movie, but this movie was definitely one of those times! Teddy Geiger belts out really catchy pop rock tunes such as 'Tomorrow Never Comes' and 'Great Escape'. His voice is absolutely amazing. The tracks by Vesuvius literally sound right out of the 80s. I love this soundtrack and would definitely recommend the movie AND music to anyone looking for something worthwhile.
