* HollywoodCalifornia: The movie is mostly restricted to two greater locations, namely Sunset Boulevard and the Hollywood sign. Not that it was actually made there (see CaliforniaDoubling).

Not that it was actually made there (see CaliforniaDoubling).CaliforniaDoubling), and not that the Hollywood sign and its immediate surroundings look anything like the real deal. It's kind of Hollywood Hollywood because Hollywood fails at portraying ''itself'' realistically.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: When Stacee humiliates Paul after finding out [[spoiler:he took the money of his concert at the Bourbon Room.]] He basically sics his monkey Hey Man, having him throw random shit from the hotel room at Paul and forces him to read the article.

-->Stacee: "150 year old Scotch? Priceless."

Added DiffLines:

* TelevisionGeography: The Hollywood sign in ''Rock of Ages'', actually installed in Miami, has a viewing platform behind it. The one in Hollywood doesn't; it's located on a hillside that's too steep for most to climb.
