Rock of Ages is one of the more unusual entries on this summer’s movie slate. The film, which hits theaters on June 15, is based on the jukebox musical of the same name that pays homage to the music of Journey, Twisted Sister, Bon Jovi, and a bevy of other ’80s-era hard rock.
On Broadway, the songs are the real stars of the show. But the film is top-lined by Tom Cruise, one of the biggest movie stars in the world. Most importantly, in the role of unpredictable rock star Stacee Jaxx, Cruise did his own singing for the movie (as did costars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, and Malin Akerman), which means that the soundtrack album is going to be a much-coveted collection.
The soundtrack will be available on June 5, and it will feature an incredible 20 tracks worth of hard-rocking, lighter-waving goodness, kicking off with Cruise’s take on Guns N’ Roses’ “Paradise City” and ending with an all-hands-on-deck rendition of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” that features Cruise, Baldwin, Brand, Julianne Hough, Mary J. Blige, and Diego Boneta.
