Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
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.

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.

    Fab!!

    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.
