    The movie really did go for accuracy on Rocky's look. Not so much for mom.

    It's true and the Springsteen songs were used in a director's cut DVD. It may have been a biker movie, but the real Rocky liked Jersey homo music.

    "Rocky loved Bruce Springsteen's music," says his mother, Rusty. That's why Mask director Peter Bogdanovich invited the New Jersey rocker to view a rough cut of the film last October. Bogdanovich had included three Springsteen songs—Thunder Road, The Promised Land, Badlands—on the sound track. "It was music loved by a child without hope," says Bogdanovich. "After the screening Bruce came over and embraced me."

    Three months later Bogdanovich returned from a European holiday to find that Universal Pictures and producer Martin Starger had replaced the Springsteen songs with four more upbeat ones by Detroit's Bob (Katmandu) Seger. The issue was money. Springsteen had wanted some $160,000 for music rights plus—and here's the sore point—an advance of $150,000 against videocassette sales. Seger took a flat fee of $50,000. "It's the difference between nice chamber music and Puccini," says Bogdanovich, who promptly filed suit in L.A.'s Superior Court against Starger and Universal. Claiming breach of contract, he asked for $10 million in damages.

    Actually, Springsteen had always intended to donate his fee—half to Rusty and half to a charity agreed on by both. Bogdanovich still hopes to restore Springsteen's music before the wide release of Mask on March 22. Universal, "sure the courts will sustain our position," has so far turned a deaf ear. Rusty is convinced they are wrong, and her final point is the most telling: "Rocky didn't know who Bob Seger was."

    I didn't know the whole backstory but I think Seger's music fits his story better anyways.

    THIS is the REAL Rocky. Chuck Wepner. Completely fucked over by Stallone. Sly talks all the time about how he was at a Wepner fight when he got the idea for Rocky. They used TONS of his life for the character. They even had Chuck on the set. Then when Chuck wanted a few bucks for using his story, Stallone and company were like "Chuck who? We don't know no Chuck."

    Great documentary from ESPN.
