just a side note...I've always been a little confused by this term...maybe others can comment:  TopBilled, and a lot of others, include non-musicals (Boogie Nights) , so would films like The Big Chill -60's soundtrack- or The Graduate -Simon and Garfunkle hits- be included too?   I was going to include Rock and Roll High School, but there are actually songs in the soundtrack that aren't punk/Ramones.  Would just about every musical bio be included?  Maybe I'm overthinking this....

It might be a more loosely defined term. I would agree that THE BIG CHILL has a jukebox musical quality.

A juke box musical is generally a musical made up of preexisting familiar popular songs --as in "watching this movie is like listening to a jukebox". I personally would include, as you say, pretty much every musical biopic about rock musicians, but something like The Graduate is a new original soundtrack, so that one I'd say doesn't count. What say the rest of you?

I like this definition. Yes, it is probably best described as a story that uses pre-existing hit songs. DIRTY DANCING, which combines familiar old tunes and a few new tunes, sort of blurs the line.

Yes, but a couple of those songs weren't new...been out nearly 2 years when the film was released.  I always thought it meant one genre, but I like your definition better.🤔
