Storyline

Tribute is a feature rockumentary about music's strangest subculture: tribute bands. Tribute bands go to extraordinary lengths to re-create the experience of rock supergroups like Kiss, Journey, Judas Priest and Queen. The result can be anything from an emotionally potent nostalgia trip, to something more like Spinal Tap. Tribute follows the on- and off-stage struggles of tribute bands and their fans in their quest to live their rock dreams. Together they face band members quitting, soul-sucking day jobs, even bandmates who take the impersonation far too far. Written by Anonymous

You Cannot Take Away The Love of Rock n Roll
8 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

This film is not about "tribute bands" -- it is a film about life and the refusal to lose passion. There is a 30 something mailman in this film who philosophizes about staying true to the music of Judas Priest. Whether you like Judas Priest or not is irrelevant -- the story is the mailman's determination to remain true to his love, his passion. It's a lesson we all can use. The audition scenes in this movie are tremendous -- the dude who auditions as Gene Simmons wearing a Rams jersey steals the film. And Superfan, who lives for Queen tribute band Sheer Heart Attack, reminds us all that the death of a band member doesn't have to kill the music. The film also has plenty of reminders that some people take things a little too seriously -- the rivalry between competing Monkees tributes is both funny and sad. This film is a 10 and should be seen with Heavy Metal Parking Lot just to drive home the points.
