Think about it. How many movies have you seen that contain Classic Rock music in them? Answer - a lot. That's what this weekend is all about.

When we began to compile this list, we had no idea just how many tunes from the Classic Rock world were featured in movies. There are so many, one weekend is not enough to play them all.

I have to admit, and maybe you will too, whenever a Classic Rock song comes on in a movie, it sounds better than ever (if that's even possible.) Maybe because you have a visual to go along with that great tune. If it's setting up a scene or plot of the movie, those tunes make the movie so much better...every time.

This weekend, we've got hourly triple-shots of Classic Rock songs featured on the big screen, and we'll tell you which movie they came from. Enjoy!

We’re always looking for ideas for Classic Rock theme weekends, so if you have an idea you’d like us to feature for a weekend, let us know.

Have a Rock and Roll Weekend, and remember to take 99.1 The Whale wherever you go, so you won’t miss all that great Classic Rock. We give you three ways to listen –  on your radio at 99.1 FM, online at and on your mobile phone with radioPup.
