More classic music movie moments, as chosen by MOJO staff (view part 1 here).

"I definitely don't remember this happening..."
The genius of Michael Winterbottom and Frank Cottrell Boyce's Tony Wilson/Factory Records fantasia, 24 Hour Party People, distilled in a single scene. Tony Wilson's wife Lindsay shags Buzzcocks singer Howard Devoto in the bogs... or does/did she? The intervention of the real Howard Devoto not so much breaches the fourth wall as shatters it and stamps on the bits.
"Radio City is under attack!"
The apex/nadir of Slade In Flame's cautionary übergrot, on an oil rig/pirate radio station, with the aid of Richard Anthony Crispian Francis Prew Hope-Weston, aka DJ legend Tommy Vance. "It's the same old crap!" "Yeah, I know..."
"I have been erased"
From Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster, the bit where Lars Ullrich visits sacked guitarist Dave Mustaine to obtain "closure" (for whom, it's unclear). Relish Mustaine's relish!
Sigur Rós and the rhubarb marimba guy
The beauty and idiosyncrasy of the Icealandic group and their wonderful homebased doc, Heima, encapsulated by the man who makes tuned percussion out of... well, most things. And they sound amazing.
Ross Bennett, Online Assistant Editor
Janis Joplin jams with Rick Danko and The Dead
From Festival Express, the 2003 rescue of priceless 1970 footage of rock's aristocracy on a busman's holiday. Here a high speed train, an acid-spiked bottle of Canadian Club whiskey and an American folk classic equals a damn good time for everyone.
Jazz On A Summer's O'Day
A masterclass in phrasing, rhythm and sheer stoned class, all housed under one of the finest hats in jazz. If Anita can get up those steps, that is...
"Some of you never been down South too much..."
Elvis Presley rectifies that oversight with a blistering Polk Salad Annie from Denis Sanders' 1970 documentary, Elvis: That's the Way It Is. Check the curl of the lip at the beginning of this amazing clip. It takes all of 11 seconds for Elvis to turn the crowd to jelly.
Arlo Guthrie Comes Into Los Angeles...
Joints. Lots of joints. Arlo 'Son Of Woody' Guthrie and director Michael Wadleigh present Turning On, Tuning In and Dropping Out, Woodstock-style.
Ian Harrison, Associate Editor
Can Play I'm Hiding My Nightingale
They did lots of film music, but here Can, still trading as Inner Space, thesp up for 1969 movie Kamasutra in beatnik mode with original flautist David Johnson and stand-in singer Margareta Juvan. Also includes a gob-iron enriched version of Man Named Joe.
The punk band off No Surrender
Alan Bleasdale's astonishing 1985 black comedy of New Year's Eve sectarian madness is too byzantine to explain here, but 20 minutes before the end a mime-happy punk band led by actor Mark McGann come on at a besieged Liverpool social club and sing "We're gonna die, die, die, die, die!" to a room full of geriatric bigots. Also stars Elvis Costello.
Scott Walker's Britvic 55 Advert
Three LPs in 30 years... but at least he appeared, looking worried, on this 1987 TV ad alongside Dusty Springfield, Sandie Shaw and Georgie Fame. Again, bit of a cheat, not a film, but what the hey?
