It’s only been a few weeks since the Elton John biopic “Rocketman” hit theaters in the United States, but it’s already impressed audiences from coast to coast. It’s receiving great reviews from critics, and everyone I know who has seen it says it’s hands down the best film of the year (although, I don’t know how many of them saw “Toy Story 4” but that’s a rant for another time.)

Sir Elton John was undeniably one of the greatest rock musicians of all time, and as a die-hard fan of classic rock music I’m nothing but thrilled that he has been honored with this motion picture. But Elton John isn’t the only artist that deserves his own film. There are plenty of others that should get the same treatment. Here are some other classic rock biopics that we’d like to see.

  • Van Halen
  • Led Zeppelin
  • Pink Floyd
  • Journey
  • Aerosmith
  • The Beatles
  • Rush
  • Nirvana (or Dave Grohl in general)
  • KISS
  • AC/DC
  • Metallica
  • Prince
  • Bob Seger
