Never Say Never, coming out on Friday, we here at MRQE thought it would be appropriate to compile a list of some of the best iconic rockumentaries ever. Justin Bieber is literally an overnight success making millions of girls (and boys) cry, scream, obsess, and become fanatic over his every move; though, Bieber is a pop-singer who seems quite cookie-cutter. Below we recount some of the most legendary artists and performances ever. From Madonna to the Rolling Stones to Led Zeppelin, each of their respective documentaries remains as iconic in exploring the true music legends that they were (and still are), and their sometime notorious, yet still renowned performances.
