Los Angeles, CA (Top40 Charts/ ID PR) The ROCK OF AGES: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK, released June 5th by WaterTower Music, debuted today at #1 on multiple Billboard charts - locking in the #1 Soundtrack, #1 Indie and #1 Hard Music chart positions according to SoundScan. Additionally, the soundtrack took the #15 spot on Billboard's Top 200 chart.

"And with the film's opening this Friday, we expect interest in our record to remain high for some time."

"We're thrilled with these #1 chart positions before Rock of Ages has even hit theatres," said WaterTower Music head Jason Linn. "And with the film's opening this Friday, we expect interest in our record to remain high for some time."

This hit album features 20 rousing anthems that defined a generation—reinvigorated for the film by a stellar cast including Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Malin Akerman, Mary J. Blige, Alec Baldwin and Tom Cruise. The soundtrack for the film, which the Los Angeles Times calls "a love letter to spandex-clad guitar gods," has earned rave reviews in advance of the film's theatrical debut, June 15th.

Directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray), New Line Cinema's Rock of Ages is the film adaptation of the smash hit, five-time Tony®-nominated Broadway musical which tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Executive Music Producer Adam Anders (Glee) helps tell the rock 'n' roll romance through cast versions of the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Poison, Journey, Twisted Sister, Bon Jovi, Joan Jett, Foreigner, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake, and more.

As the larger-than-life, arena-rocking champ "Stacee Jaxx," the Rock of Ages Soundtrack features Tom Cruise belting out Bon Jovi's classic "Wanted Dead or Alive," Def Leppard's hit "Pour Some Sugar On Me," and Guns 'N Roses anthem "Paradise City." Cruise also duets with Malin Akerman on Foreigner's power ballad, "I Want To Know What Love Is," and shares the mic with Julianne Hough on The Scorpions' "Rock You Like A Hurricane."

The album also features an extraordinary medley of Night Ranger's "Sister Christian," David Lee Roth's "Just Like Paradise," and Poison's "Nothin' But A Good Time," which features Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin.

Also echoing through the soundtrack are mash-ups of songs that ruled the airwaves in the `80s, including Foreigner's "Juke Box Hero" / Joan Jett's "I Love Rock N Roll"; Extreme's "More Than Words" / Warrant's "Heaven"; Pat Benatar's "Shadows Of The Night" / Quarterflash's "Harden My Heart"; and Starship's "We Built This City" woven into Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It," all performed by the film's cast.
