A list of the top 20 music biopics have been revealed and not everyone is happy about it (I’m looking at you, Lisa Shaw).

Coinciding with the release of the David Bowie biopic Stardust, The Guardian has ranked the greatest muso portrayals ever…

On Monday, Botica’s Bunch went through the entire list… and let’s just say that Lisa was appalled that one HUGE flick was left off the list.

Here’s the full list…
