Set for a June 5 street date, the official soundtrack for the upcoming movie will include 20 songs featuring film stars Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Alec Baldwin, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

“Taking classic, beloved rock anthems and seeing them through the unique perspective of the characters in the film was such an exciting prospect for me in directing Rock of Ages,” said Rock of Ages director Adam Shankman. “We had a phenomenal cast who performed these songs in such a powerful way — adding depth and meaningful imagery to the film. I was lucky to have a partner in Adam Anders who, better than anyone working today, understands how to take popular songs and seamlessly repurpose them to tell a story with unparalleled originality and success.”
The big-screen adaptation of the Broadway musical centers on small town girl Sherrie (Hough) and city boy Drew (Boneta), who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Adam Anders (Glee) serves as executive music producer.
