17. 'Sid & Nancy' (1986)
Best movie-music moment: Sid and Nancy kissing in a dirty alley as trash falls on their heads to Pray for Rain.
Why we love it: While Johnny Lydon hated the movie (possibly because he looked like a douchebag in it), writer/director Alex Cox (who used music so well in "Repo Man") made a movie that was true to punk sensibilities -- with a soundtrack to match. Best of all, Gary Oldman was so convincing as Sid Vicious his tuneless video of "My Way" is almost shot-identical to Vicious' -- and sounds eerily alike.
Tracklist highlights: Joe Strummer, "Love Kills"; The Pogues, "Haunted"; Gary Oldman, "My Way".
