Day 12 - 30 Day Movie Music Challenge

Music you like that is in a film that you have not seen

My favourite band is Rush (no surprise there) and I know there is a film where developing an appreciation of Rush is an important plot point. The film is I Love You Man and it is billed as a "bromance". It has to be said that the label "bromance" was enough to ensure that I would not see it!

 Rush tracks feature a few times in the soundtrack and the band itself actually appear in the film:

Rush playing live are, as always, excellent, but that clip hasn't made me any more keen to see the film. In fact, I'd go as far as saying, it has positively put me off!

{Again, worried this might be too niche a category. Any one else able to identify films/music, or can anyone suggest how I could widen this category to make it more accessible?}

How are you supposed to know if a song is in a film without having seen the film? That's hard!

Google is your friend! But, yes. I did say I thought this one was to tricky. I know about this one because Rush featured in the reviews but the more I heard about it, the less I wanted to see the film.

Soundtrack albums are often used to promote a film, for example, there was almost as much fuss made over the AC/DC Iron Man 2 album as there was of the film. And, I suppose trailers are another source of information.

But your point is accepted. Is it fixable, or do I just leave a difficult challenge on day 12?

A challenge isn't a challenge if it's easy!
